For those of you who don’t already know a a linky party is when the author of a blog (aka- the host) invites other bloggers to put a link up on their site to their own blog posts. Sometimes the linky party will be on a particular topic and sometimes it will just be a free for all. For bloggers, its a great way to get some exposure and help to promote your latest blog posts and for readers it’s a great (and easy) way to find new blogs to read. Here’s five really awesome (and Aussie!) weekly linky parties you should check out:
3. The Ultimate Rabbit Hole: This Linky Party is hosted by three awesome bloggers: Calm to Conniption, The Annoyed Thyroid, My2Morrows You can put your link up on any of these blogs and it will magically appear on all three.
4. HIT: Stands for ‘Home Improvement Thursdays’ is hosted by two of my favourite bloggers; Bec from The Plumbette and Nicole from The Builders Wife Posts can be from any blog niche but need to be related to DIY, home improvement, renovation, home decoration, that type of thing.
A little bit on linky etiquette for bloggers: If you post your link it’s a good idea to make some time to visit and read some of the other posts (as well as the hosts), share the love! Also some linky parties have a ‘button’ (like an electronic logo) which you can add to your sidebar to show you participate in the party and help direct traffic their way.
Do you join in linky parties? Are there any others you know of that I haven’t mentioned?
