Friendly Friday: March 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):

Maureen, a stay-at-home-mom to her young son named Collin, named her blog Are You a Mom? from a question often asked of her by a boy who would come in every week to the pet store where she used to work. When she was trying to think of a name for her mommy blog, his question seemed like the perfect name. Maureen loves her baby, enjoys sharing coupons, and offers giveaways on her blog.

Many people know Glenda as "Tootsie," and so Tootsie Time is where she shares her love of gardening in Canada as well as her decorating ideas. She is a single mother of three, loves to fix up old pieces of furniture, does interior decorating, and grows things in her greenhouse. Glenda really enjoys her greenhouse and dreams of having one large enough to make a living from it one day.

Sheena at Sophistishe is one of the 19 Walmart Moms across the country who "represent the voice of moms," so if you have any suggestions for Walmart then you can contact her. On Sophistishe, Sheena tells about her new hobby which is painting, their toddler son named Jayden, her reviews and giveaways, and about starting up a new blog with a friend called "She {Hearts} It!"

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!
