Each week I try to write some type of message or thought or story for you guys before the link party. Some weeks I just say hi. Some weeks I have an announcement. Some weeks I just ramble about nothing. This week? I just want to tell you guys that I really love looking through all your links each week. And believe it or not, if you have good posts week after week, I notice, and I add you to my reader. I have found most of my favorite blogs through this link party! Good content is the fastest way for you to grow your blog. If you put out awesome content, people will notice. Bloggers will feature you. People will pin your stuff. This is the best way to grow your blog… by simply having great content! As Scott Stratten said at Blissdom two years ago, “only post Awesome. If it’s not Awesome, don’t post it.” This has been my philosophy since then. I try to only post Awesome stuff. This advice was one of the driving factors in me stopping all sponsors and promotions on my blog. Don’t let your blog get bogged down with filler posts and garbage just so you can “get a post up 5x a week”. Just post Awesome and you will be awesome. Oh, and stop saying “easy peasy”. That phrase sends shivers down my spine! 😉 ::Off my soap box now::
** So, are you new here? I throw the Hookin’ Up with HoH Party every week to give all of you a chance to find other awesome blogs to read. Below you will find several hundred mini links to other people’s blog posts. Have fun browsing through the links in search of new ideas. Also, if you are a blogger, please feel free to add your own links to the list!
Please refrain from posting links to shops and stores.
Please note: RECIPES/FOOD is a separate link. Please make sure you are linking in the appropriate section.
Here are a few of my favorites from last week’s link party:
Beautiful bathroom makeover from Involving Home. She also gives some really great advice about picking tile and countertops.
Oh my, I am in love with this beautiful paper dahlia wreath from Love, Pomegranate House. Isn’t it so pretty? And as a side note, she always links up such fantastic stuff each week, that her blog is quickly becoming one of my favorites.
I Should Be Mopping the Floor has the best tips for creating business cards. Seriously, great tips. And if you look closely you can see my mug right there, front and center. It’s like Where’s Waldo. Where is Allison?
Turn a coat closet into a rockin’ media closet by following Organize and Decorate Everything‘s tutorial.
Practically Functional is such a smartie pants! She used a pool noodle inside her boots to keep them upright. This is why I love reading blogs – such great tips that make me wonder why I never thought of that.
Restoration Beauty added soem dividers to her kitchen drawers to make them more organized.
I love this DIY floating sideboard made from ikea cabinets over at Nalle’s House. Beautiful piece of furniture and a beautiful blog to boot.
How many times have you climbed on top of your washer to retrieve clothing that has fallen behind? Only me? (I use the turned-on vacuum tube & extender thing to suck stuff up from back there!) Well, Lewisville Love put a shelf over her washer and dryer that not only blocks stuff from falling into the dark abyss, it also adds a ton more storage!
Okay, seriously, cutest link of the week right here. The Dating Divas made her family into little magnetic people. I stinkin’ love this.
Magic City Thistle painted an accent stripe down her hallway and it turned the space from boring to awesome!
Make a colorful rainbow piñata for your next party following No Business Like Sew Business‘s very detailed and easy to follow tutorial.
Washi tape does it again. This time The Benson Street turned boring little tea lights into cute little candles that I just want to either gobble right up or pinch the cheeks of. I can’t decide. But seriously, they are that itty bitty and adorable.
