Friendly Friday: December 17th

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the holiday next week, Friendly Friday will NOT be posted and will instead return at 11 EST on Thursday, December 30th. Happy Holidays!

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):

Alessandra @ The Adventures of a Greek Italian Girl writes about Italian/Greek heritage/culture, vintage, animals, fashion, food, books, movie & beauty reviews, & more. If you need a smile, be sure to check out her post highlighting baby animal videos. You'll find movie and television show reviews, posts about fashion, and as of late, recipes too. This blog has a little bit of everything!

Amanda @ Blogger Broadcast says her blog is a "blog for broadcasting consumer wise choices, such as products, services, businesses and blogging tips." She shares tips on making money online and many links to blog events and hops. You'll also find information on how to do things like create a signature to put at the end of posts. This blog focuses a lot on helping other bloggers become even better!

Kim @ Momma of 5 is, well, a mom of five. :) She has dealt with many struggles from early on in her life but has chosen to grow and learn from them, and depends a lot on her faith to get through everything. Her writing shares her family with readers, from everything to updates on her children to tougher issues like her father dealing with cancer. You really feel like you get to know her through reading her blog.

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!
