Make A Friend Friday


Make a Friend Friday

One of my favourite pastimes is meeting people and making new friends. Learning from them, sharing, laughing and holding each other up in crisis moments. Friends are the cherry on the cake and without them life can be incredibly dull.

 As a newbie in the blogosphere it can be quite daunting to put yourself forward and make those friendships that in time can turn out to be the best ever. As a newbie it’s difficult to know where to turn for information and discover how to improve your blog.

In the ten months I have been writing I have bumped into so many lovely, interesting and helpful people that I thought it would be nice to get everyone together, in the same spot for a moment in time, once a week. A Melting Pot, a networking point, a place where seasoned bloggers can welcome newcomers to join in their features, where those holding competitions can have an extra shout out to a captive audience and where newbies can present their blogs and read others. A place where people can discover likewise minds and share information. Bloggers from all over can come here add a link to their main blog and then we all leave comments and hop around from blog to blog meeting new people, gaining new followers and making some great new friends.

Below you will find a link where you can fill in your details and join in the fun. If you’re a newbie, link to a post you particularly like and we’ll pop by to meet you. Seasoned bloggers please link to your weekly feature, competition coming up or anything you’d particularly like to showcase this week.

The badge for Make A Friend Friday can be found at the top of the page and here is the code too (If somebody can let me know how to put it in a pretty box I’d be ever so grateful 🙂 Please leave a message for me.)

I wish you all a very Happy Friday and hope you all find lots of new bloggers – go enoy!
