Link Up Parties

 

Have any of you been part of a blog link up? Many of you probably have. In fact, that’s probably how you came across my blog. But for the sake of the post, let’s assume you haven’t for now.

Link up parties are a great way to meet other bloggers and also get your blog out there. Bloggers will host a link up party on their blog and invite anyone to come and add a link to their own blog posts. Most parties have rules. You will have to link up to a post that relates to the topic of that blog. Sometimes they only let you post one link, other times you can post up to three or even as many as you’d like. Each blog link up party will have it’s own rules so you just have to read them.

Link up parties will be on a certain day each week. For example, I go to ichoosejoy.com every Thursday morning to link up to that party. Then on Friday morning I go to a different blog to link up there. It only takes about 15 minutes to do each morning. It has increased my page views drastically and also has led me to some great blogs that I follow now.  link up parties

 

Here are the link parties I join weekly:

Monday- themodestmomblog.com; nourishingjoy.com; whatjoyismine.net; momstheword–livingforhim.blogspot.ca; ishouldbemoppingthefloor.com; foreverjoyful.net

Tuesday- timewarpwife.com; cornerstoneconfessions.com; teachingwhatisgood.com

Wednesday- raisinghomemakers.com; wholeheartedhome.com

Thursday- apronstringsotherthings.com; ichoosejoy.com; thedeliberatemom.com; classicalhomemaking.com

Friday- arabahjoy.com; missionalwomen.com

*UPDATE- I found this awesome list of blog link ups! Go check them out!

There are also Saturday and Sunday link ups but I just don’t do blog work on those days. All of the blogs I link up to have a family and home emphasis. That’s because my blog relates to that. If you have a blog on fitness or fashion then just google fitness blog link ups or fashion blog, or whatever your blog might be about.

Have I missed any other great link ups? I know there are a ton more out there! Share them here! Do you participate in link up parties? What do you think of them?

  1. Sandy, I am new to this blogging, and I had to seem stupid, but I don’t really understand how these link-up parties work! Do you have to go on in the morning? Is it a chat? Sorry, I would love to learn more about it and be able to subscribe to some of these blogs so I can learn how to do this better.
    Thank you for sharing this, I love your posts!

    • Hi Mrs. Flegal! Link up parties used to seem so foreign to me, too! No, it’s not a chat and you don’t need subscriptions or memberships. All it is is a blogger will do a blog post that includes a link up. So at the bottom of their post you will see a bunch of other people’s posts and below that it will say something like “add your link” or “click to enter here.” When you click that you will be directed to a page where you can add your link (directly to a post, not just your blog url). Add your post and post title then just click done! Your post will then be added to the all the posts below the blogger’s main post. These do close (some after 24 hours, some after a week) so that’s why I like to go to the blog the morning the link up opens. That way I don’t get there when it has already closed. Not all blogs post their link ups every week but I check each week usually. If it is a link up it will usually have a # in the title (but not always). Hope this is helpful. Let me know if you have anymore questions!
