Friendly Friday August 13 – Frugal Novice

Friendly Friday August 13

Welcome to Friendly Friday!

Remember, YOU can host the link list on your blog too! Just click “Get the code here…” at the bottom of the list. 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 for everyone to get even more traffic to their blog.

Thanks for joining the Friendly Friday celebration hosted by Christi at Frugal Novice, Xenia at Thanks, Mail Carrier 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 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):

Laura at Along for the Ride started blogging to keep in touch with her family, but now she also uses it to share her faith, share about all the crafts she makes, and share about her job as a hall coordinator at a large university.  She and her husband have been married for about a year, and they actually live in the residence hall on campus with their kitty.  Her blog is about being along for the ride…the ride that God has planned for her!

Melissa at Mommy Living the Life of Riley! is a SAHM and devoted wife who loves writing about her journey through motherhood.  She writes about such things as the “potty training saga” going on at their house right now with their daughter, Riley.  Melissa has a lot of great giveaways, product reviews, and info such as how to clean up your blog graphics so that your blog loads faster and you get more search engine links.

Having grown up in Canada, Heather at Acting Balanced is a SAHM now living in South Carolina with her husband and two children.  Their family of four, however, will soon be five in November.  Heather shares about their son with autism and how tough it is to be the parent of a child with a disability that can’t be identified by sight.  Her blog features not only their family but also book reviews, giveaways, contests, and product reviews.

Now that you know about these 3 wonderful blogs, it’s time for you to join in! Add your link below and we’ll see you back here every Friday! And don’t forget, you can grab the code to share the link list on your blog too.

All three hostesses appreciate followers through GFC and Twitter, and we’ll follow you back – be sure to leave a comment with your URL and/or Twitter username.  Hope everyone has a great weekend!
