Friendly Friday: January 7th

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):

Fair warning: If you have never visited Twinsomnia before, I almost guarantee that you will spend the majority of your afternoon going from post to post and nodding in agreement and/or cracking up. From hilarious or moving stories about her three kids aged five and under (including adorable identical twin boys) to photographs that look like they're straight out of a magazine, Megan takes precious time that should be spent sleeping and writes a blog that you won't want to miss.

When you hear the title Grandma, you might picture a sweet old lady in a rocking chair knitting... but that's not what you'll find at Grandma's Guide to Life. Carli writes about working out, shopping and her love for couponing, bargains and saving money. Whether you're looking for freebies (she has great Mailbox Mondays posts), store deals, giveaways, family talk, craft ideas she has come across and more, this Grandma is blogging her way through it all.

Journaling their daily adventures, Holly's posts at Popsicles and Pigtails range from visits with family to shopping trips to fun blog hops (present company included) and more and feature her warm personality and great photos of her gorgeous daughter, Darbee. A sweet compilation of reasons why Holly is blessed to stay home and watch her daughter grow up, these memories are ones that she will have captured online forever.

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!
