Anyone interested in having a reader community built for their blog for free in exchange for feedback?

I am a mom blogger (3 teen boys) and am also co-founder of a web start-up that offers community widgets for mom bloggers. Rather than ask people to go to the site and install one (www.theblogfrog.com), I thought I would offer to build a community forum for any interested mom bloggers and send you what it looks like first so you can decide if you want one. No strings attached - just trying to get the word out!

The widgets let you see who is visiting your site, shows what your readers are blogging about, and lets readers create discussions. Very similar to what this forum does only on a smaller scale for bloggers. You can see one here www.mycharmingkids.net (community widget is upper left).

Any feedback on the best way to generate awareness about this service? Does it sound interesting? Let me know if any of you want to see what yours would look like (FYI - they are free!). Thanks for any comments.

OOhhh -- SO interested!! A friend of mine and I JUST started a blog that is setting out to create a charity linking a network of moms helping other moms in need, via donations of gently loved clothing...as you can imagine - we are totally dependent on creating a following so that these acts of kindness take off and reach those mommies that could really use a hand right now...

I am a TOTAL novice at blogging - so let me know what you would need from me and if my blog would even qualify. We are new and don't really have a following yet.... www.passitonbaby.blogspot.com

Hi, I am a new blogger learning so much but not enough yet. I would be very interested in have one of these widgets. I am not sure I understand the whole thing but am willing to try anything. It sounds really interesting. I want to get more readers to my site. You can visit me at http://www.faithfamilyfibro.com and you can email me at karen@faithfamilyfibro.com to let me know what you need from me. I am also looking for a blog design with a button that is reasonably priced. If you have any recommendations, let me know. I am off to take a look at my charming kids blog for the sample. Thanks so much. K.
