Friendly Friday: May 27th

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):

When you visit Erica's blog, bassgiraffe's Thoughts, you might wonder how she came up with such a unique name! She combined her love of giraffes with the fact that she plays the bass clarinet (and has since she was 10!), and there you have it! Erica is a stay-at-home-mom to her two little girls, and has been married to her husband Chris for over 10 years. She shares product reviews and giveaways along with posts about how her family is trying to be more eco-friendly and healthy.

If you need to sit back and take a little break, you might want to have a Latte with Ott A at her great blog! She writes about "love, life, and everything in between." She holds a monthly linkup with an Iron Chef Challenge, where there's a themed ingredient for the month and bloggers are the "Iron Chef" contestants. Ott A bills herself as a farm girl fashionista and loves to cook and garden with her husband. Be sure and check out her recipe list while you're there - you might just find something new to try in the kitchen!

The blogger at Every Day Products and More is mom to an adorable little boy and has been married to her husband (and best friend) for 12 years! There are giveaways and product reviews aplenty, along with a gift guide to help you select something special for the loved ones in your life! You'll also be able to get really useful information, like "Must See Kids' Movies" or "Eight Safety Tips for Blogging."

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!

Now, that spring is almost done, I wish you Sunny Summer Days - your "Fun in the Sun" articles gave me the idea to make such a wish... I really enjoyed them.
