Friendly Friday: June 4th


Welcome to Friendly Friday!

Starting this week YOU can host the link list on your blog, too! Just click "Get the code here..." at the bottom of the list. Hosting the list is a great way to get traffic to your blog and make Friendly Friday even more beneficial for everyone.

Thanks for joining the Friendly Friday celebration hosted by Xenia at Thanks, Mail Carrier, Christi at Frugal Novice and Charla at Healthy Home Blog! We invite you to join us every Friday to make more friends in blogville, get more blog followers and follow other great blogs out there.

To join in the Friendly Friday celebration, include your link in our list, follow the hostesses in the first 3 spots and then start blog hopping! Visit other blogs on the list and comment to give them some blog love. Then take a minute to follow them through Google Friend Connect - this is a good way to keep up with other blogs, but also lets us show support to each other!

When people comment on your blog and let you know they're a part of Friendly Friday, return the favor and follow them back. This way everyone gets traffic and followers out of participating, and it's a win-win situation. We would love for you to also grab our Friendly Friday button and post it on your blog and/or in a post - the more bloggers that find out about Friendly Friday and participate, the better!

Spotlight on Friendly Friday Followers!

We love your participation and want to show it! In addition to gaining followers, each week we'll select three blogs at random and will feature links and a write-up for those blogs in the content of next week's Friendly Friday post. There are so many seriously wonderful blogs out there, and this will be a great way to highlight some of those each week. Say hello to the lucky chosen 3 for this week (and feel free to stop by and give them a little extra love)...

Chelsea is the blogger behind Twee Poppets. Wondering what that name means? "Twee" means cute, and "Poppet" means sweet child. The theme of Twee Poppets is, in Chelsea's words, "cute little items for cute little kids!" Each Tuesday she hosts a blog hop called Tuesday Tag Along, which is another great way to get to know other bloggers. Discover fun Etsy shops through her reviews and giveaways, too!

At One Savvy Mom! Sarah, a mom of two toddlers, writes reviews for products and events. She always has a lot of fun giveaways going on. From jewelry to toys to kids' gear, get the skinny on all sorts of new items when you visit Sarah's blog. She's also planning to run the NYC Marathon in November to help raise funds for Standing Tall, a unique program for children with disabilities.

Shannon at Coupon Mommy of 3 is a co-host of "Facebook Like You Back," a meme that takes place each Wednesday to help bloggers get followers on their Facebook pages. She writes about couponing, freebies, and match-ups along with hosting giveaways and writing product reviews. Shannon's a mom to three sweet girls and is most recently learning about the world of cloth diapering!

Now that you know about these 3 wonderful blogs, it’s time for you to join in! Add your link below and we’ll see you back here every Friday! And don't forget, you can grab the code to share the link list on your blog too.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Hi Xenia,

Thanks so much for dropping by our site, and for telling me about Friendly Friday! I am going to drop by next Friday FOR SURE. We are launching our VERY FIRST Kids' App called "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star - Preschool Storybook Piano App" on Monday June 14th. So, if we can get more followers, and I can then announce the app on our site, that would be GREAT for us!

We are having a contest - the first 200 people to come to our site on the launch date get the app for FREE! So we are hoping for a great turnout!

Anyway, I will be a regular here. Thanks for all your support, and for telling me about FF. Now all I have to do is understand WHAT to do! LOL!. Also, how do I host it one time?
