Friendly Friday

Follow Friday has come to an end, but there is now Friendly Friday. Read more from my friend Xenia at Thanks, Mail Carrier:

Hi and welcome to Friendly Friday! As many of you know, Friday Follow ended as of last week. I, along with many of you, had a lot of fun participating in it each week because it was such a good way to find new blogs, and get a lot of great traffic and followers along the way.

Since Friday Follow is no more, Christi at Frugal Novice, Charla at Healthy Home Blog and I have teamed up to create something new for each Friday so that there's still something fun for us to be a part of every week. We wrote Lynn at Midday Escapades and she's wished us the best with this new venture. We hope you'll participate so we can continue to get to know more of the great bloggers that are out there!

We're calling this Friendly Friday, because it's all about making friends in blogville. We'll post the link list each week at 11pm on Thursdays CST. Include your 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!

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! :) If you'd like to make a Friendly Friday post, you can include our great button from up above (the grab code isn't working at the moment so go ahead and save it and then please link back here! As soon as it is fixed, it will be added) and be ready to meet some great new friends! Making a post can also be helpful because then people visiting your blog have a perfect place to leave comments.

In addition, 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 wonderful way to highlight some of those each week.

We hope you'll be a part of Friendly Friday and spread the word to your friends! We look forward to getting to know you and provide a great way for bloggers to support each other.
