Friendly Friday: August 19th

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 one blog at random and will feature links and a write-up for that blog 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 one of those each week. Say hello to the lucky chosen blog and blogger for this week (and feel free to stop by and give her a little extra love):

Amy at We're In For It is a Virginian living outside of DC with her husband Luke and her almost-two son Gage. She's a teacher for her "day job" and is very passionate about what she does. Her blog began when she was pregnant to keep people updated, and has expanded now to chronicle Gage's life. If you like seeing photos of an adorable little boy then you'll love Amy's blog! She also shares some product reviews and giveaways, like one for a Carmex prize pack right now! Stop by and visit Amy and get to know her family a little better - you'll feel like you've made a new friend!

Now that you know about this wonderful blog, 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 be sure to leave a comment with your URL and/or Twitter username. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Hi Xenia,

Thanks for hosting this wonderful link up!
By mistake I've linked to it twice.
Would you be so kind enough to delete both of them, so I would be able to join properly.

Have a great weekend!

Stopping by for the blog hop and I already follow but wanted to say Thanks for hosting. I do come by some but usually don't leave a comment if I am rushed so this time I wanted to leave one so that you know I appreciate all that you do. Have a wonderful weekend.
