Friendly Friday – March 18 – Frugal Novice

Friendly Friday – March 18

Welcome to Friendly Friday! (What do you think of the new button option?)

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 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 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):

Laura at Along for the Ride is just, well, adorable, and so is her blog. Laura’s a Christian and uses her blog as an outlet to share her faith as she writes about things she loves. You’ll find tutorials on DIY craft projects, giveaways, and a link to her etsy shop where she creates great clips and jewelry – the bias tape collection is especially charming.

Sassy Scorp at Single Mama in LA writes about her life with her daughter. She shares her day-to-day experiences and you can get to know her better through her participation in the “Meet Me on Monday” meme, along with posts about weight loss and even some heavier topics like being the loved one of an addict (especially relevant with all of the Charlie Sheen craziness going on lately). She also hosts giveaways and has one live right now!

Be forewarned – don’t visit Treat & Trick on an empty stomach, or before you know it you’ll be craving one of the delicious-looking goodies the author shares! From cakes to more savory options, there are a ton of recipes provided for dishes from a variety of cultures. If you’re ever wanting to try something new, you can find Chinese and Indian recipes to throw into the mix. Just be prepared for an impromptu trip to the grocery store for ingredients!

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 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!
