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):
Hey, It's Jade is written by a Texas gal who is a Christian wife and mother of two young boys, "trying to figure it out." She homeschools their children and has weekly recaps of what they've done. Jade shares a lot of homeschooling experiences as well as reviews and what she does to try to be as frugal as possible. She has taken the "Homemaker's Challenge of 31 Days to Clean," and it's interesting to read her experiences and how she's doing.
If you're looking for some great crafts to do this summer to decorate your home or maybe to give as gifts, Confessions of a Paper-Crafts Chick has some great ideas with detailed instructions and pictures to guide you in making your craft. Cards, journals, and candles are just a few of the things she makes. She enjoys using the Word of God to encourage and motivate others while having fun with the crafts. Her latest project is a framed 3-D poem which looks really cool!
Marni at Your Sassy Sites! is a wife and mother, a crafter and vinyl maker, and loves anything big and blingy, crafty and sassy. She and her husband have two boys plus a "sweet angel baby girl" who is missed every day, and she and her husband have been married 11 years. Marni admits to being a little obsessed with organizing and so she decided to help organize the blog world by choosing a topic for each day and showing off the cutest stuff out there she can find.
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!
