First Fridays!

Hey there fellow Bloggers. I would like to announce that on the First Friday of each month I will be posting a link to your best light hearted funny posts that have to do with wifeology, couponing, mommyhood, dreamcatching, or just plain interesting takes on life as we know it.

I have about five spots available each month and all entries must be submitted for consideration by the end of the month. To submit, simply email me your link and a short description of the post to adplaton1 [at] hotmail [dot] com. Then subscribe or check back on the First Friday of the new month to see if your post has been chosen. In order to be a winner you must have a link back to Scribble Ink Cafe. I have created this button for your sidebar but a text link is fine too.

Thanks and I look forward to seeing your posts!

Here are some examples:
Throw It to Me
Live Long and Coupon
Swimming in Circles
Still Learning

Today is First Friday of May, but I didn't have any submissions for my link post. So - No May FF. I'm gonna shoot for June. And to clear some things up, it doesn't have to be a new post. It should be a link to your "best" post. You can repost it as new on your site or you can link to the original one, up to you. But in honor of May FF, I came across this post to share. It's copy heavy, but super funny to any blog CEO: Run the Blog Cops are Here!


  1. Hi Amy,

    How current does the post need to be? Should it be from the previous month? Thanks.

  2. Hi Gina,
    The post does not have to be new, only live on your blog. I'm looking forward to your submission. :)

  3. Hi Amy! Great idea. I loved your Throw it to Me story, ha ha ha. I live in Seattle, and love to visit the fish market to watch the action. I never would've thought to get the fun started in my local grocery store though!!! What creativity you possess!

  4. Carebear,
    welcome! Great to have you visit. Looking forward to a submission from you! The grocery store is like my nightclub, that seems to be where all the action is in my life lately....hum. The other thing that crossed my mind is to find the store lights and flick them as I play my ipod over the intercom - I haven't had the guts to try that yet.

  5. Thanks for the invite but I cannot promise I could post on time. You know, I write by mood and publish it by schedule. So I cannot guarantee to post something on a 1st Friday of the month.
    I'll really try and I will let you know. I'm the laziest writer in this planet.

  6. bingkee,
    You don't need a new post, you just submit your fav post (new old whateveh) This way great posts get to live again in the blogosphere!

  7. Is there a First Friday for June? If you do have, can I join? Thanks so much for this Amy. Would you like me to repost this on my blog?

  8. I am new to the blogging world. Love your site. I have 4 kids so th funny material of life will never run out. My site is My blog is Me Time and We Time. I hope to join in on your fun. Talk soon.

  9. I guess you must have found a publisher then!
