My Favorite Linky Parties {31 Days of my favorite links}

If you are a blogger, you know that one great way to attract new readers to your blog is through linking and sharing your posts at various link parties around the blogosphere.    Have you ever looked at your stats to see which parties are generating the most traffic to your site? Even if you are not a blogger, I encourage you to stop over at these blogs to find all kinds of inspiration.  You might find a new blog to follow more regularly.


I have and today I am going to share with you the top three link parties that I like to join so  maybe you can join in too!  Linking up at these parties has created virtual friendships with both the hostess and many of the other regular posters at the parties.


My favorite parties are ones that are wide open and allow all sorts of topics to be shared.  That makes it easy to join in the fun and extra interesting to read the wide variety of what interests other people.




1.round button chicken  Every Thursday Leila and her daughter Rosie from Like Mother Like Daughter (a fabulous Catholic blog full of the wisdom of an experienced mother and a younger daughter) hosts Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real.   Simply find four photos, one for each category, and share a little about each photo.  Here is an example of one of my own PHFR posts ~Amish Country Version.
  


2. Weekend Bloggy Reading   Amanda at Serenity Now  hosts two great link-ups.  Weekend Bloggy Reading begins on Fridays and continues all weekend.  She welcomes any posts related to crafts, recipes, home decor, book reviews and more.  Amanda does a great job of choosing individual posts to highlight on her blog throughout the weekend.  Her whole blog is is a fun site to peruse.




3.Sisters Heather and Vanessa host a fantastic party at their site called At The Pickett Fence.  For Inspiration Friday they invite you to share "what inspired you this week" and they always select a few posts to feature prominently on their blog.  I think you'll love their entire blog.

Locally Grown {stuffed green peppers recipe}

  Last weekend we took the whole family to a nearby produce stand.  We were craving something that tasted fresh from the garden and since I don't have my own garden, we found this place.     The fields were full of fall-colored flowered.  Can't wait for those cooler days to come.         But for now, we are reveling in the height of summer sunshine and produce.       It's easy to go overboard here and buy much more than you can use in the next few days.  I don't even like okra but they look so inviting in those cute blue crates.     These tomatoes inspired a caprese salad for lunch: tomato slices cut into quarters, hunks of fresh mozzarella, snipped basil leaves, salt, pepper and drizzles of olive oil and red wine vinegar.       These strawberries wound up being dunked in Silky Chocolate Fondue .       Every girl dreams of doing her shopping with one of these adorable woven baskets, doesn't she?       Even the boys had fun playing in the sand while I took m

How to Create Art in Five Minutes

As I have mentioned before, my word for this year is CREATE .  Painting with watercolors is one area in which I have been experimenting.  Michael's has a really inexpensive line of art supplies called Artist's Loft .  I bought the watercolor paints and a few brushes as a way to get started without much investment. (Everything is around $5-$10.)   Being a part of Alisa Burke's on-line class called Create Daily , has awakened my senses to the many opportunities to create quickly .  Sometimes we get caught up in the idea that we must have large blocks of time set aside to be artistic .  Surely, we think, it takes an afternoon to paint, collage, journal or compose a few lines of poetry.  Well, if you are seeking perfection, it does.  But if you are seeking to revel in your simplistic ability to create something imperfect instead of nothing at all ,  there are moments of creative inspiration everywhere you look! On this particular day, I opened my daily poetry em

Petals :: 52 Photos Project

Where I live the Bradford Pears have bloomed and blown and the Cherry Blossoms are in full blossom.  Even though that means our allergy season is now officially underway, I cannot help opening our windows every morning in hopes of hearing the birds singing to greet the day.  Springtime has conveniently coincided with my personal recovery process from knee surgery.  As I am slowly re-gaining mobility on crutches it seems an added encouragement that the weather is also improving and the trees are welcoming my return with their flowers. What a treat it would be to be able to put down my crutches in time for Easter Sunday and walk again on my own! (I am doubtful but one can hope.) Sharing with 52 Photos Project :: Petals
