I’ve been blogging now for around six months and for me one of the most enjoyable aspects of posting is joining in with Linky’s. Here’s a guide to the Linky’s I’m loving right now…
So what is a Linky? A Linky is when a blogger or group of bloggers set up a host page where other bloggers can link their posts. Sometimes there’s a theme, other times anything goes – but usually there are a few rules to follow. In general, these rules work towards building a positive culture that benefits everyone, encouraging you to comment on as many posts as possible (usually with a minimum number stated). It’s an amazing way to find new bloggers, connect with other bloggers and read such a range of different blogs; it is also a great way to get exposure for your own posts.
However, I’m constantly finding new Linky’s and then losing the links or missing the deadlines each week – so to help anyone like me (and myself!) here’s a list of the Linky’s I’m loving:
