Friendly Friday: May 20th

blog hop           blog hop

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):

Have you ever felt like the hum-drum of daily life could use to be prettied up now and again? That is exactly what Brittany at My Decoupaged Life manages to do with posts about her adorable 2-year-old, Mackenzie, and her creative and fun crafts and tutorials. As well as the step-by-step instructions that are easy to follow, Brittany's personality comes through in each of her posts and you'll soon find yourself eager to join her in making your own tutu, hooded towel, binky clip, felt game board and more.

A cloth-diapering mama to her wonderful little guy, Kat at Kat's Adventure Book has a way of making you feel like you personally know her and her amazing family. Whether a post about their daily adventures, life as a librarian, reviews and giveaways, or her "crafty goodness," you'll find a little bit of everything... and cute pictures of Peanut to highlight them all.

Lesa at Dusty Up Diaries focuses on the funny side of life and, whether we know it or not, there is a lot more absurdity in the world that we think. Her blog celebrates just about anything that amazes her or that she comes across in her "adventurous doings and dabblings." Come find out what nature, food, travel, garden, photography, family and more this Texas city girl is doing while living her dusty life in the wilds of Oklahoma.

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!
