Several of my tea blogging friends are members of the Association of Tea Bloggers. The association was created in 2009.
I applied for membership this past April. The criteria for membership can be found at their website along with an application. Applications are reviewed, and a response is sent to the applicant.
I happily received notification in May that I was accepted into membership, but I just had the membership badge/logo put on my blog homepage this week. Explanation is for those who've noticed it on the right side bar, and may have wondered what it means.

Also new to my blog home page [since some have asked for it], is the option to have my posts sent straight to an E-mail inbox, rather than going to my blog site to read posts.
