Friendly Friday: February 25th

Welcome to Friendly Friday!

Remember, YOU can host the link list on your blog, too! Just get the InLinkz code and copy it directly into your post. 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):

Mrs.White at The Legacy of Home is the mother of five home-schooled children, ages 13 - 22, and has been happily married for almost a quarter of a century. She is a writer and reviewer who loves fashion, sewing, reading, fitness and cleaning. She writes about everything from home decor to housekeeping to being thrifty. You'll also see photos of her children and read about their day-to-day lives. This blog has a charming feel to it immediately and welcomes you in!

Jen at Simply Living is a twenty-something who writes about her adventures as she finds her place in the world. She started her blog at the beginning of this year and is off to a great start! She has a great how-to for an inexpensive St. Patty's decoration that would be really fun to do with your kids (or just for yourself), and in looking at her blog I've found at least 2 project ideas that I really want to try!

Ashley at Stilettos to Strollers writes about subjects ranging from becoming a first time mom to saving money to dating! She loves sharing great deals, tips, and stories; she also has an adorable Etsy boutique where she sells handmade bows and other creations. You'll find a lot of tips on saving money on your shopping trips, too!

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 get the InLinkz 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!
