WFMW: Works For Me! {Ebook Announcement}

I’m straying from my usual tip-giving to share an exciting announcement: A team of awesome people have been helping me compile a WFMW ebook!

It’s called That Works For Me: Tried and True Tips from Works For Me Wednesday and it’s featuring hundreds and hundreds of the greatest tips from you.

Can I get a woot?

For the first time, the best tips from carnivals over the past several years will be organized in a searchable, categorized easy-to-use ebook!

It will be released Spring of 2012.

If you participate regularly in WFMW, please check your inbox (or comments if you don’t have an email on your blog) for a time sensitive email in case one of your tips was chosen for the ebook.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit Mercy House.

[Updated] I forgot to mention that my portion of the proceeds are going towards our savings fund to bring our kids back to Africa with us this summer to do our annual staff development, skill training and develop our new community program for single moms.

I hope you’re as excited as we are!

Because that works for me.

AND—to celebrate this fun news, I’m mixing it up with a thumbnail picture linky instead of what we normally do. I’ve been thinking about trying it. Make sure you leave your preference in the comments: regular linky or picture.

    I don’t have a tip this week – but I wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS and WOO HOO on the ebook!! I’m so thrilled, honored and excited to have one of my tips featured, and I can’t wait to read the rest of the great tips in the book!

    I’m not a fan of the picture linky. To me, it makes it harder to scan what people have posted, and I don’t like having to find a picture for my link.

    Woot! on the ebook!

    I really really prefer the list because there is too much scrolling down to view the pictures and my old computer doesn’t scroll without a lot of complaining and crashes.

  4. 14


    I like the pictures, but many times the tips that I am sharing do not include a picture. I could certainly try to take a picture of a basket of clothes if I am posting about laundry, but it’s not something I would normally do. I could go either way, but think the list was good.

  5. 16


    So excited about the eBook! Congratulations! And I miss the text-only link party! I think there are so many great posts that don’t have pictures…. :)

  6. 17


    Congratulations on the upcoming e-book! I’m so glad that part of the proceeds are going to Mercy House.

    Personally, I prefer the standard text linky. With the pictures it’s harder to read the link titles, and will so many people who participate in WFMW, it looks a little bulky. But that’s just my opinion. :)

    Today I’m linking up a yummy cheeseburger pie recipe that’s always a hit with my family!

    Congrats on your book! I like pictures as it catches my eye. The only complaint I have is that I’ve noticed that it makes some blogs load very slow!

  8. 20


    Awesome idea with the ebook! I personally prefer the list without the pics. It’s easier to scan to me. And sometimes I just don’t have a picture to share (like this week).

  9. 21


    Aweseomesauce on the book! Always love your link up. I’m partial to linky up with photos but I’m a visual person. Either way, I”ll be here once a week, at least, linking up and checking out the other link ups!


  10. 22


    Hi Kristen! I put up #140 Kill Mold Naturally Now! It’s actually far more interesting than it sounds1!

    I’m hosting a weekly linky which is all about seasonal celebration and would love it if you popped over and linked this post! It would be great to introduce your blog to my subscribers! Seasonal Celebration Linky Really hope to see you there! Rebecca x

    I prefer pictures, a lot of times I won’t even linkup or view the regulat linkups because I have limited time to read each one to see if I’m interested in the link. With pics I can decide quickly if it’s something I’m interested in :).

  12. 27


    I’m so glad that you are doing a linky with pictures! I am so much more of a visual person. Sometimes titles of things can be deceiving and even sound boring-but they are really good projects!
    I linked up two projects today:
    When life gives you too many scarves-make a shirt! My Springy, Silky Scarf Shirt. It’s easy to make, fun to wear and looks good on everyone.
    And I created Free Bachelor Bingo that accompanies watching the Bachelor on Monday nights. It’s a great way to interact with friends or family while you’re watching!
    Have a great week!

    YAY for a new book – loved your first one – read it in one sitting – re-read it as time permits! I know this one will be great!
    I lkike the thumbnail linky – blessings!

  14. 35


    The pictures are great! But for me, I kinda messed up in posting mine and put my name instead of the name of the post (number 209). Think you could delete that for me? Thanks

    Initially liked the pictures, but it seems less organized than when it was just words. It also takes longer to go through. Just my .02.

  16. 42


    I like the picture linky, too, though it makes the linky list even longer than usual! Very excited about the ebook, and I’m so blessed to be included. Can’t wait to see it!

  17. 44


    I think this is my first time at this party. It looks like it is really fun. I look forward to the ebook. I link up to several parties that use pictures so usually have one available, but I don’t have a preference. I will be going back through your blogs and checking out some of the older parties. Today I brought Red Velvet Cherry Bars. I will be back, pictures or not. Thanks for hosting and have a great week.

    How exciting for an ebook… makes me wish I had submitted more tips over the years!! :)
    I am a fan of picture linkys because I am a visual person… and if there is not picture in the blog, it’s fun to see a picture of the writer of the blog.

    I love the linky pic…I’m a visual person and I just have to see a pic and it saves me a lot of time. I can’t wait for the will be the first one I will buy…love your service to our God,your husband and kids!

  20. 51


    The pictures are pretty, but to be honest i find it hard to scan through. And i kept trying to click the pic rather than the text underneath and then wonder why it wasn’t working

  21. 53


    i love WFMW- but i’m not bloggy enough to participate the majority of the time! i have done a few in the past, but obviously i wasn’t chosen for the book… i like the picture linkys, but it wouild be less overwhelming if the picture had to do with the post- it’s hard to sort through all the words AND non-related pictures. just sayin’…
