Friendly Friday: April 1st



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):

"More than a blog... a busy mom's sanctuary" sums up what you'll find Karen writing about at Barefoot in Portland. This busy mom of a beautiful 5-year-old daughter keeps up with her day job, her family, delicious recipes, and reviews and giveaways that everyone can enjoy. Stop by and see what this blog hopping, vacation-taking mom is up to next!

Mommy Only Has 2 Hands is a phrase that many of us have thought but that Heather has turned into a blog of her own. On a quest to be the best mother and wife that she can be, come join her on her journey to go green through her reviews, giveaways, and tales of her adorable son, J Myster.

With the cutest header that is going to make you long for the beach, Lesli at Put A Little Umbrella In Your Drink has the perfect mix of fun. Her posts will keep you up to date on deals, freebies, rebates, rewards, great giveaways going on throughout the blogosphere that you're not going to want to miss, and her love of photography. All that's missing is a pina colada!

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!

HI Xenia

Thanks for hosting! I wanted to invite you to share your thoughts on blogging challenges when you have a moment - it's only 2 questions, so it won't take long! :-)

Have a fabulous weekend!

Ok, I don't normally do these, but I do really like you, girl, so here I am. Mostly it's because I'm awake tonight which is extraordinarily rare. So what the heck!
