Friendly Friday: May 6th

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):

Elizabeth at Table for Five is the writer behind the original "Table for Five" which she started in September 2005 while on bed rest during her pregnancy. She shares stories and cute pictures of their three kids as well as many reviews and giveaways. She states on her sidebar that if you have a question then email her. Nearly four years ago, Elizabeth answered several emails to help Charla (who she didn't know) get started with blogging. She's good about helping fellow bloggers!
Kristen at Our Crazy Bunch is wife to an "awesome hubby" who is a Marine, and she's mom to four wonderful children, two girls and two boys. They live in Florida where she shares about their life living on a military base, her faith, crafts, reviews, giveaways she hosts, and other topics such as great deals she finds. Kristen also shares a lot of cute pictures of their family and activities they are involved in.

The writer of Pawberry Lane is a vegan who loves cats (did you notice the cats on her button?), traveling, knitting, crocheting, contesting and blogging. This blogger is from Canada where "life is pawsitively sweet," and she does reviews and many giveaways on Pawberry Lane. She even does reviews on pet products which comes as no surprise, and her cats gladly help her with several of her posts.

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!
