Happy Tuesday! Recently, I've been reading a lot of articles and learning a lot in hopes of further growing my blog. In addition to this weeks link party, I wanted to share the success that I have with link parties. Not only are they fun to participate in, but it's such a great chance to meet new bloggers and find new blogs to connect with. On top of the social aspect, they can be real drivers of traffic to your blog.
Link parties vary by host(s) and you can (literally) find a link party for any niche you could possibly think of! Once you do, read/follow the rules for each party and participate in them every week or however often they are. Link parties create blogging sub-communities within the blogger communities.
When you're deciding which posts to add to a link party, I've found it's mostly beneficial to try and think about which posts people are going to want to click on the most. It's also super important to use an image for the party's icon that is engaging.

Most link parties (like this one, score!!) pick posts during each party to feature in the post. This is an added bonus to getting your blog posts seen as the host(s) are essentially promoting you for free! Most hosts also share your links on social media which also helps to spread the word about your posts. If you participate frequently, I guarantee you'll see a boost in your traffic! I sure do, and that's why I love co-hosting a link party myself!

Now start growing your traffic and add your links to our party! Here's this weeks featured posts!

Now that you've had a chance to look at these awesome posts, let the party begin!
Please be sure to link a blog post, not a Pinterest link; you want to make sure others are visiting your blog, not just re-pinning!

The Guidelines Are Simple to link up:

1. Check out our profiles on Pinterest; if they interests you, consider liking our boards and/or following us.
2. Share the party on your social media. More visitors = more eyes on your posts!
3. Add any family friendly blog posts or pins (maximum of 3)
4. Share the love; view, pin, or share at least 3 other links on the link up!
5. By linking up, you agree to allow Painted Teacup and Daily Dose of Design to share your links and photos (credit is always given to you) on our blogs and social media sites. You also agree to allow us to contact you via email to inform you of future link-ups.

Chantal and I will comment/pin/share all links to one of our Pinterest boards!

Happy linking! Thanks for joining, we'll see you again next week!
Link Up will run from 8pm EST Tuesday – 11:59pm EST Thursday

Be sure to pin this image to your Pinterest boards - more pins will give more eyes onto your links!
