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):
City Girl was born and raised in the city, but now she is living in the country with her husband. City Girl Can Survive tells about her experiences with country life, farm animals and spending much time outdoors. She has a love for writing, running, fashion, shoes and finding a great bargain. City Girl shares about these things as well as her insight into country living through her exploration of her new rural world.
April shares her busy adventures of working full time and raising eight kids with her husband. "Dad" says there's no privacy but "Mom" wouldn't have it any other way. She admits it gets hectic but she loves their eight blessings and their home life together. April shares about this family life in Full House Mommy, as well as freebies, collecting school supplies for needy children and other experiences. She also plans to do product reviews and giveaways.
Ria at Life As a Wife is a twenty-something Christian newlywed who writes about life with her husband. She also posts photos and writes about her photography business - Ri Photography. Her photos are vibrant and a lot of fun to look at! She and her hubby are high school sweethearts and have a really unique love story! Ria also hosts giveaways from time to time and has a really optimistic, cheerful tone to her writing that makes it uplifting to read.
