Friendly Friday: October 1st

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 family-friendly 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 think to yourself that My Life Ain't Always Beautiful? Melissa does and shares it with her readers through her sweet and creative writing, tasty recipes, fun crafts and entertaining pictures. Together with her Hubby, Munchkin Prince, Munchkin Princess, adorable new kitten Lucky and angel baby Andy Leigh, you'll find out that even thought their life ain't always beautiful, it's filled with love.

Combine an energetic 2-year-old and a teething 4-month-old and a great collection of product reviews and giveaways and what do you get? Life at Mommy's Little Dino's! Kari fills her blog with adorable pictures of her boys, personal posts of their adventures and the great shopping deals she has found. You won't want to miss what these Dinos are up to next!

Just reading the title The TRUTH about Motherhood instantly grabs your attention, doesn't it? Truthful Mommy writes a brutally honest blog that deals with the issues that affect us all. We're all thinking it, so it's about time someone put it out there! Motherhood is filled with the good, the bad and the ugly and one visit to The TRUTH about Motherhood and you'll find out that you're not alone on this wild ride that our children put us on!

Now that you know about these 3 wonderful blogs, it's time for you to join in! Add your family-friendly 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!
