First Friday Link Party for Writers – Beautiful Spring Edition

Carol Tice | 17 Comments

Spring tulipsWelcome to spring!

This is the last day of spring break where I am at, so I’ll be hanging out with my kids and turning my blog over to you — the Make a Living Writing community of awesome writers.

This is your chance to get some exposure for your blog and make new connections.

You can link us to your best recent post about writing, blogging, productivity, marketing, work-from-home, work/life balance, or freelancing.

Then come back over the weekend to check out the rest of the blogs your fellow readers have shared and vote for your favorite! On Monday, the links reorganize to feature the top winners.

Instructions are below — enjoy the link party.

    To my shame, I only just remembered to check back on the link party. I submitted my own early on, had a quick look around, made a mental note to check back last weekend when voting was open…and that mental note got lost somewhere along the way.

    I’ve really enjoyed reading some of the entries today, despite missing the voting window by miles! I particularly liked Mike Johnson’s “Writing is a Super Power” and Nida Sea’s “Why Being a Stubborn Ass Can Be Good and Bad for Working at Home.”

    It’s a great idea, and it’s a pity people didn’t return to vote (myself included). Thanks for the effort you put into it Carol – it’s brilliant that you offer this platform for your readers’ work, and it must be a bummer when people don’t respond as you’d hoped.

    Is the commentluv link how you linkup your posts? That’s the usual way when posting comments here, isn’t it?

    I’d like to link the post in the commentluv link below in the link party. Can you it for me please, if this isn’t the correct way?

    How do I link up my post? Am I missing something? Should there be a linky tool or something I should be linking with? I can’t see any such tool.

      Hi, Raspal –

      Carol posts the link party on the first Friday of every month. You only have 24 hours to add your link, and then the tool closes for voting. You won’t be able to add your link to this party, but you can wait for next month’s. 🙂

        FYI I’m not really doing it monthly anymore…might do it again in June or July, stay tuned.

        Not really sure — I see a big 12 people voted…of 38 entrants most didn’t even come back to vote for their own post! Much less ask their peeps to come support their entry.

        Feel like people are not getting the hang of the ‘party’ concept. If it doesn’t interest my readers, I may not do it again.

    Hi Carol,
    Finally around on a Friday to join in your link party but I think I screwed my linking up as it asked me for a backlink to your site from my blog post (which I don’t have) – user competency fail by me, I think.

    • Carol Tice on

      No, it’s us – we’ve forgotten to get our widget up! You can hand include a link, or give us a sec and we’ll get the widget into the sidebar.

      Dang it…we’re having a little trouble locating it, so for now we’re hand-moderating in links…we will get it fixed, no worries.

        Drat, I was having the same issues as Sue Bentley. I thought I screwed it up, so after repeated attempts I chose another blog page…don’tcha know they both showed up! Not trying to hog; if you want to remove a Portrait Writer entry: #s11&22, I’m fine with that. Sorry.

        • Carol Tice on

          I believe you can delete your own posts, Rosemarie. Please get rid of the duplicate if you would.

          We’ve got our widget up now so folks should be good to go!

    I think my most recent post falls under work/life balance — it’s about me making a change in my eating habits, and why that matters for mental health.

    Looking forward to reading some great posts in the next couple of days! 🙂
