Link Up...It's a Linky Party!

There are so many blogs that I read and quite often I find new ones (to add to my ever growing Google Reader) by checking out the blogs of readers that have joined "link up" parties on my favorite blogs.  My friend Laurie over at Gallamore West has an adorable blog filled with all the amazing things she does with her boys (she is a mama of ALL boys too and will soon catch up with me as she welcomes her 4th little boy!) It was there that I found out about Google Friend Connect being discountinued and about this new place to find friends Linky Followers!  Since I am trying to get the word out about my blog (which is under redeign and will hopefully launch soon) I thought this would be a great place to "link up" and welcome new readers!  

Here's all the info courtesy of Jen @ Twiddler House {thank you, Jen!}
GOOGLE FRIEND CONNECT
will be discontinued on Feb 29 for any one that is not with blogspot, and rumor has it that it is being completely phased out for everyone soon

BUT

There is a NEW awesome tool–Linky Followers
It has so many amazing features (that GFC never had). If you have not signed up you should. (And you can have GFC and Linky together). You will LOVE the new features!!! I'm digging' 'em :
In honor of the new Linky Follower craze, Cheri from It's So Very Cheri is hosting a LINKY FOLLOWER PARTY HOP.

Here are the RULES:

 

1. you MUST have the LINKY FOLLOWERS tool on your site to participate.

If you see that your link has been deleted you need to add the LINKY FOLLOWER tool to your site and then come back over and re-enter your link
{You can have both the LINKY FOLLOWERS & GFC on your site but you must have the LINKY FOLLOWERS toolto participate in this party hop.}

2. You MUST follow the person who has the party on their site as a thank you.

3. Just add your blog button to the LINKY PARTY below.

4.Then grab the BLOG HOP code

5. Then you follow other bloggers–(as many as you want)
You will find the code right under the Linky Party where it says CLICK HERE TO ENTER–just under that it says: WHAT IS A BLOG HOP? GET THE CODE HERE. Click on GET THE CODE HERE and enter it into a post on your site. You can grab info from my post if it helps you with your post.

–leave each one of the blogs that you follow a comment letting them know you are following them and ask them to follow you back.

If you want to add the BLOG HOP to your own site you will get lots of new followers(see rule #2)
I hope you link up to my blog and become a follower of Shhh...Mom's Busy Crafting as well as LOTS of other blogs!  If you are here for the first time, please leave a comment and say Hi!  I would love to follow your blog as well!

Great idea! Especially as just today I put up my linky button. I didn't hear that google connect might disappear entirely . That would be tragic, as we've all worked so hard to buld up our followers!

The Mills family was established on April 20th, 2002 when Bryan C. Mills married Allison Wilson. The family grew in 2005 with the birth of Christopher and then again in 2007 when Cameron first made his appearance. It just grew a little more in 2009 with Zachary's arrival and then again in 2011 when Ethan entered the world with a bang! We hope to continue to grow our family as God allows. We are truly blessed and praise God each day for the joy we bring each other!
