Sticky Beak (10)
Sticky Beak's all about sharing. Sometimes we can't all get around to every single blog and website available so thats very Sticky Beak comes in. By word of mouth (well you get what I mean) we are more likely to get to those blogs that we wouldn't have normally seen without someone pointing them out to us.
The links could be to your own post, a favourite blog post you would love to share, an author's website/blog, book/writing contests, reviews you really enjoyed, tour info or anything that you would love to share with others. Just use the comments section for your links!!
