Friendly Friday: December 10th

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):

The Diary of a Dreamer not only features Rachel's thoughts on books, home decor, recipes and more, but pictures and information on her amazing accessory business, Jazz It Up. As well as finding a beautiful collection of handmade necklaces, earrings, handbags and hair accessories at low, low prices, but the proceeds go towards funding the adoption process for Rachel and her husband! That makes these gorgeous items even better!

With a love for all things literary, MommyJ at Mommy Snark has a warm and friendly writing style that pulls you in right from the start - no wonder she has a finished manuscript! With five kids and a dog, there is always something heartfelt, funny, rewarding or just plain chaotic to find out and you'll find her insight and humor make you want to visit again and again.

Ciera over at Ciera Danielle is a young mommy and wife with two adorable children, a boy and a girl, and a dog (who is the focus of an extremely funny-because-it-wasn't-me post from this past Monday). From great photos of her family to witty thoughts about daily life to a great list of 101 tasks to be completed in 1001 days, this is a fun read for all.

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!
