Hello and welcome to the new and improved For The Love Of BLOG!
First up a massive HAPPY NEW YEAR to you! How was Christmas for you? Can you believe that it is 2017 already?!
We have had a lovely long break on this Linky but we are raring to go for the new year and I am super excited to introduce a few new, exciting additions to this year’s Linky.
First up, if you are new here and new to Linky’s in general then a massive, warm welcome! Take a second to pop across and read this Linky guide that I’ve put together for you and then come right back.
So then, new for 2017, we will be opening up the posts to an unlimited number as opposed to the 75 we usually cap it at and to help us with all the commenting we will have a special guest host each week. This week it’s the turn of the lovely Laura who blogs at Five Little Doves. Laura is going to help us retweet your posts on Twitter and will also be reading and commenting on your posts with us. Thank you so much for helping out Laura!
Another new addition for 2017 is our #fortheloveofBLOG Facebook group. Here we hope to provide a supportive and friendly community with general chat, blogging tips, social media boosts and more besides. If that sounds good then you can request to be added by following this link here. Looking forward to seeing you all there soon!
So then let’s get started – I cannot wait to see what you have all been up to over Christmas, how your blogging year was in 2016 and what your resolutions for 2017 will be!
I expected this blog to go a bit quiet over Christmas but in fact the opposite happened. I had one post go a little bit viral and brought in my highest viewing figures ever, one post shared by a company I worked with that brought a lot of people over here and a Mumsnet blog of the day! I actually don’t think I took a proper blogging break after all.
My blogging resolutions for 2017 are here if you fancy a nosey and one of them is to produce a monthly newsletter with exclusive content just for my subscribers. There will be a round up of my top posts but also giveaways and extra useful blogging tips that I haven’t shared with anyone else.
Please be sure to add this badge to your posts. Leave the old badge on any posts you have previously linked up though please – this is the 2017 badge. I hope you like it?
A few rules if we must….
