::Weekend Bloggy Reading:: Link Up!

Welcome to Weekend Bloggy Reading. I hope you'll leave me a little comment love today and be sure to link up your best post of the week!

*You can earn an automatic entry to this week's Party Box Design Notecard Giveaway by participating in the party and including a link back to me or my party button in your post.

Here are a few of my faves from this week:
sources listed below

~I found this post on 50 Ways to Promote Your Blog to be most helpful! I didn't agree with all of it, and some of the misspelled words made my skin crawl, but it had some really good tips to think about whether your blog is brand-new or a few years old.

~Katie showcased a beautiful Kitchen Before and After by one of her readers. (Love Katie's blog, by the way...she has great style!)

~To lead into her new Fit Fridays series, Paula wrote about How to Make the Most of Your Gym Membership.

~Ashley hosted a Valentine's Tea with her girlfriends. They even did a craft!

~Emily Rediscovered Garden Ridge, and now I'm planning a trip down to Richmond to shop!

~And me?
I have a great Giveaway from Party Box Design open right can win your choice of any Notecard set from the site! This week, we reviewed the best Superbowl Commercials and I gave up the best recipe for  Easy Cheesy Spinach Artichoke Dip. I also pondered whether or not I ought to have a chat with my Pomeranian, Emma, about Boundaries.

Time to link up your best post of the week (please take the time to include a link-back or my party button and visit some of the other participants!)
Here's the button code if you'd prefer to use that rather than a link-back:

Party is open until 10 pm (ET) on Sunday night.

Remember that blog parties work best when bloggers participate, so if you have a chance to visit a few of the other links, you might find a new friend or two!

I am so excited because some of the girls from my table at MOPS are getting together for a Valentine's brunch tomorrow morning...sans children! I have a pile of laundry calling my name, and a book I'd like to get past the third chapter on.

*Don't forget that the "I {Heart} My Crafty Cutter" linky party is coming up on the 21st! Click the button to read more.*

  1. Thanks (again) for another fun Friday of great bloggy reads! I have found the best blogs on your blog hop and the best followers as well. Everyone is so sweet with leaving comments and we all know how important that can be discouraging to feel like you are posting into a black hole (well it can be for me...but I am just squirrely like that!!!) Happy Friday!!!!!

  2. That Emma. She's thinking that she needs to have a talk with Amanda about boundaries, lol. She is too cute in those shades! And as for typos that make your skin crawl, guilty. I'm the worse at writing.
