Friendly Friday: July 30th

Welcome to Friendly Friday!

Remember, YOU can host the link list on your blog, too! Just click "Get the code here..." at the bottom of the list. The code is different every week, so be sure to get the new code when hosting Friendly Friday on your blog. Hosting the list is a great way to get even more traffic to your blog and make Friendly Friday 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! Please DO NOT list your giveaways here, links must be to either your homepage or your Friday posting with your blog title. All others will be deleted.

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):

Do you ever wonder if something is just too good to be true? Amy at We're In For It... has the cutest, most well-behaved baby boy named Gage, so she isn't sure how the future live up to how wonderful life presently is. With a son this adorable and a laid-back, conversational writing style, reading Amy's blog is like having a chat with a good friend. From swim lessons to blog design (currently decked out as a birthday present to her husband!) to questions and topics all moms wonder, We're In For It... is always a fun read.

A real-life, real mom looking for ways to make ends meet, Debby at Deal-icious Debby writes about great store deals and coupons that she has found as well as products she enjoys and tips for money-saving crafts and fun projects to keep on budget. Being frugal isn't always easy, but Debby shows that through her deals, garden and cute kids that it can still be possible. Head over to start saving some money today!

A Christian mom and grandmother, Teresa at Too Many Heartbeats writes an extremely moving and informative blog about dealing with her rare and serious illness, Dysautonomia/POTS. A disease of the autonomic nervous system, Teresa's body cannot make the necessary adjustments to counteract gravity when standing up and has therefore left her 100% disabled, homebound and bedridden due to losing consciousness almost every time she stands or sits up for too long. With such an incredible story and positive outlook, Teresa's words will touch your heart through each post.

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.

All three hostesses appreciate followers through Google Friend Connect AND Twitter and we'll follow you back - just leave a comment with your URL and/or Twitter username. Have a great weekend, everyone!
