My Favorite Link-Up’s

Favorite link-up

A few months ago, during the community series, I mentioned that linking up with other blogs is one of my favorite things about blogging. I love having one similar thing to talk about with several other bloggers, and this is the perfect way to do that. If you aren’t familiar with link-up’s it is where one, or a few, blogs host a gathering of sorts for bloggers to share posts related to a specific topic. The topic can be as specific or broad as the host desires, and can be about anything.

The right way to go about link-up’s is easy.

  1. Find one that matches topics that you blog about, or blog about a specific topic for a link-up.
  2. Link to the blog hosts or use their button within your post
  3. Add you link to the link-up on the host(s) page when the link-up goes live!
  4. Follow the directions (if there are any) and jump around to other link-up participants posts. This is where community comes into play, it’s a great way to meet new people with specific interests.

It’s important to share relatable posts with each link-up. For example, if you are joining a recipe link-up, you wouldn’t want to link-up with a post about your new office space. There are link-ups out there for everything, and if you can’t find one, ask around or start one yourself!

Below I have listed some of my favorite link-ups that I love to participate in and read. While I don’t link-up with these every week, I do try and check out what everyone else is sharing, and add my own post every few weeks. If you have a link-up to recommend or one that you host, please let me know in the comments!
