Link parties

I know we are not all here to write blog posts to reach the masses, some of us are just here to let loose, write for therapy. But whatever your motives are Link ups and link parties are a great way to get your blog posts out to a wider readership but also to find a more diverse selection of blogs to read. I try and participate in a wide range of link ups to build up the readership of my blog. It really works. When I make an effort to link up I can see the difference in my stats.

Now, what is a link party I hear you ask. Imagine this.

Day to day, we all go about our own business, but once in a while we go to a party and meet up with friends. Imagine now going to a party where you don’t know anyone, you chat to new people and make some new friends. This is a link up. You go to a blog and know no one, but leave your blog link and maybe visit a few new blogs and find some great new content to read.

To help you link up there is a wide range of link ups depending on what type of blog niche you have. Here are some that I have found.

My favourite is over at Dream big, Dream often there is a weekly chance to leave a link and either have it reblogged or just linked up with everyone else in the comments.

A lot of sites will have a directory of link ups they have found or use. Many will have a variety of different link up themes. So there should be one for your blog’s niche and every day of the week.

Here are some that I try and use.

Sunday – niftythriftythings

Monday – Newman’s Corner

Wednesday – Chaotic bliss

Thursday – for the love to

Friday – My Creative Scoop

Go on, put on your dancing shoes and go link up with some new friends to be. If you find any new Link ups come back and share them with us.

#NaBloPoMo15, Books, guest post

Guest post a Book and Activity

I read this great post about creating an activity to go with books that you read with children. Cassi at the Crafty Crow has created a great guest posting series where she invited people to submit books and a linked craft they have shared with children. I am sad that I missed this and wanted to share my own and invite anyone to share with me their book and activity (craft or other activity) to let me know and I will post it up.

I will create a master list in this post and link up all the books and activities for you all to refer back to.

  • I will start with a book and activity I recently did with my children at school. I read them Please, Mr Panda and did a drama activity.

Message me with a link to your blog post and I will repost and link you up OR you can email me your entry to ayirrell@gmail.com and I will get it posted.  

Please share on Twitter, Facebook and on your blog to get this off to a great start!!!!

1 Event That Will Help You Expand Your Readership: Meet and Greet

imagesWhat day is it??!!  Meet and Greet Day!

Ok so here are the rules:

  1. Leave a link to your page or post in the comments of this post.
  2. Reblog this post.  It helps you, it helps me, it helps everyone!  So don’t be selfish, hit the reblog button.
  3. Edit your reblog post and add tags (i.e. reblogging, reblog, meet n greet, link party, etc.), it helps, trust me on this one.
  4. Share this post on social media.  Many of my non-blogger friends love that I put the Meet n Greet on Facebook and Twitter because they find new bloggers to follow.  This helps also, trust me.
  5. And if you leave a link and don’t follow me, how about ya show ole Danny some love?
  6. Now that all the rules have been clearly explained get out there and meet n greet your butts off!

Join up fellow bloggers and lets get linked up!
