First Friday Link Party for Writers — Hot Summer Edition

Carol Tice

Summer partyThe dog days of summer are here, and as a writer you might be thinking — how can I do something productive in this heat?

The answer is: Post your best recent blog post in the First Friday Link Party for Writers. This is your opportunity to get yourself some new readers while you also find some great new blogs to read.

I’ve been hearing great things from writers who’ve posted in the Link Party. So jump on in and participate!

Look forward to reading your blogs —





  1. Joseph Rathjen

    I just voted for someone and the vote showed up on another entry…not the one I picked. Anyone else have that problem?

      My screen doesn’t show any votes at all

    • Carol Tice

      After you vote, the ‘vote’ stars disappear because you can’t vote twice.

      Come back Monday to see top vote-getters and see who won!

      I may be traveling so I’m counting on all of you to tweet about the top posts. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Carol Tice

      Hi Joseph – I don’t know how you could possibly tell that, since the system isn’t revealing votes yet! But never fear, they will be visible Monday for the top 10 vote-getters.

  2. Michelle

    Ok am I totally dense or what.
    I read a blog that I liked,
    I clicked on the link, it brings me back to this page,
    but I don’t see any way to vote for that person.
    What am I doing wrong?

    • Carol Tice

      Instead of clicking their link, you want to click on the little star that says “vote” next to it to cast your vote. If you can’t see that, try another browser. Firefox works great.

      We’ll see results for the top 10 winners by Monday, so come on back to check that out! The posts will reorganize by number of votes and stay that way…so top vote-getters get a nice prominent spot on this post that lasts forever. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’m assuming it’s too late to enter the contest now? If so, I hope you have another one soon. It’s too bad I didn’t check my email until Saturday morning.


    • Carol Tice

      As the instructions note, Julie Anne, posting is for 24 hrs starting 6 am Friday. Then we vote all weekend! Just another reason to open my emails promptly… ๐Ÿ˜‰ But set your calendar for the next first Friday of the month and bring us your best post! Would love to have you on the party.

    Thanks a bunch for setting this up, Carol! I heard about the link party in a writing group I’m in on Facebook. What a great way to expose writers to other writers-excited to check out everyone’s posts.

    • Carol Tice

      How cool — what writer group? I really haven’t checked out groups on Facebook much and would love to know. Probably folks I should get acquainted with!
