Friendly Friday: April 22nd

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):

After leaving the corporate world behind, Jeannette is now the CEO of her household at The Adventures of J-Man and MillerBug. Chronicling her daily life with her two adorable boys and wonderful husband, you'll find the cutest pictures showing the highs, the lows and everything in between (and even a fun review and giveaway thrown in as well).

If you like bows, tutus, dresses, family, giveaways, and more, then Honey Pie Accessories one blog you're not going to want to miss! Elaine is a creative, crafty mom of an adorable little girl with another due in just over a month. Don't miss her amazing creations and check out her shop and Facebook page for details on putting in your own order!

A heartwarming blog about Thor's journey to get an Autism Service Dog, Erin's writing at Paws 4 Thor will move you from the first sentence you read. Visit to learn about all of the amazing benefits that a well-trained service dog can provide for children with Autism and all of their unique needs... as well as to cheer on Thor as he continues to move forward with the 4 Paws 4 Ability program!

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!
