Friendly Friday 8/19 – Frugal Novice

Friendly Friday 8/19

Welcome to Friendly Friday! Friendly Friday begins at 8pm Central Thursday nights each week. We hope you’ll come back and join us again next week – and remember, the earlier you link up, the higher up on the list you are!

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 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 & 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!

    Following from Friendly Friday. Nice to meet you! Drop by for a visit!

    Well, I don’t know how this happened but when I checked Facebook and Twitter it said I was following there but not on GFC. Now, usually it is the other way around. Anyway, I am following you now on all of them! I don’t have a clue what you might be following since this was a little unusual. I would really appreciate it if you would check them all when you have time for a visit. I agree with the name of your blog. Boy, we sure are living in some tough times right now. I have been on disability since 2005 and for the last 2 years have had no raises to help with the rising costs of groceries, gas, you name it! So, I am a virtual prisoner in my home, afraid to go anywhere and spend any money on gas or whatever. Hopefully, something will break before long. Thanks for your help in the following and have a wonderful weekend.
