there seems to be a definite lull in our recent submission history. we *TOTALLY* appreciate how many of our friends have contributed, but we’d love to get some more random submissions too! 🙂

so…..after hearing soSOso much about this whole twitter thing, i decided to check it out and see if we could use it to help direct some more traffic to the blog (and hopefully more submissions along with it!). i’m not sure how i feel about it yet, so i’m gonna consider this a “trial run”.

if you are already on twitter, please find us at: http://twitter.com/gerbilize

and please let use know your opinions on using it as a strategy to get more people checking gerbilize out.

perhaps it will inspire some artistic renderings of a little gerbil using twitter???? 😉

so, you may have noticed that we have been posting some non-gerbil specific submissions lately, and this may seem confusing to you since the entire premise of this blog was initially intended to be gerbil focused.

however, we, the gerbilize gals, have recently decided to include submissions that are representative of ALL forms of rodentia, since people seem to keep finding all of these non-gerbil, yet totally rad (!!!), rodent things to send us. so bring on your pop art posters of porcupines, ballads about beavers, and crosswords about chinchillas! we want them all scurrying around on this blog!

you will notice that we have started to add new categories based on the rodent featured in each submission…..will YOU be the first one to warrant a new category? we can’t wait to see who gets the first “prairie dog” label! and please remember to tell all your friends about gerbilize, and encourage them to send us stuff. the more people that know about us, the more we’ll (hopefully) have to post and make comments about. and don’t forget to leave your own comments about each submission…..cuz everyone likes a little attention for their efforts every now and again, non? 🙂
