Friendly Friday: April 15th

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):

Caroline from TURKNOY is 100% Pinay, and her husband is 100% Turkish. They have two children and she writes about celebrating tiny details of their adventures. They love to celebrate their family life! Caroline shares about their travels in Qatar, Turkey, and the Philippines, and she also shares recipes for Turkish dishes. Her husband loves to cook, by the way!

Mrs. Marine & the Tiny Troops is where Mrs. Marine blogs about daily life with two children and anything else that comes to mind. She offers giveaways and blogging tips as well as other info. Mrs. Marine considers herself a married single parent since her husband is deployed so much. I must say that I appreciate her husband and all those who sacrifice for our country!

Andrea is The Momma who writes Momma in Flip Flops 2. She and her husband have three children plus "a little angel in heaven." She was a registered nurse before their first baby, and then she and her husband decided her vocation was to be a stay at home mom. Andrea started blogging as a hobby and as another way to reach other moms, and she also does reviews and giveaways.

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!
