Our challenge: To learn engagement by visiting and encouraging other bloggers. Blogging continually changes. Right now, blogging and the social media networks all want to see ENGAGEMENT.

Star Blogger's Pit Stop #18This week’s challenge: is to increase this from the average of 1.1 clicks per post

up to two (2) clicks per post.

Congratulations to the Bloggers who have learned the value of engagement.


The Pit Stop Crew are bloggers who collectively have significant blogging experience. We don’t know it all! We are willing to step out and try new things, to think outside the box. If something does not work we move on to more innovative solutions. All the way we are learning and going forward. Each week you will find constructive posts that relate to Blogging. We hope you will glean information to assist you to re-charge your blogging battery, or to fill up with motivation fuel, help to change a tire, find a higher gear, or reset your GPS.

Bring your posts, they can be on any subject that is family friendly –

Affiliate links within content posts are OK. (Exceptions: No direct sales or shops.) Giveaways must have a content post.

Dear bloggers, you are the reason we are here, and we are super excited to open up to you the benefits of joining the Blogger’s Pit Stop.

Enjoy Pinterest? Go to The Pinterest Game

Over 90 posts were linked this week! Bloggers, please share on your blogs and social media, so we continue to grow even bigger.

  1. Kellie

    Can I add a link-up to the pinterest game on my site. I noticed you have a link at the end of your article, so I am just checking?

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Kellie,
      Thanks for writing. Kathleen puts out the copy for the party. I know she is your cohost on the Pinterest game. Sounds like it would be redundant to me, but you’d have to ask her. I assume you have her Email since you both run the Pinterest game together. I’m sorry I can’t be of more help.

      • Kellie

        I was thinking if Kathleen is ok with it, every few weeks, one of us 7 Pinterest Game bloggers can have the link to the Pinterest Game. That is very kind of you to link me this week.

        • Janice Wald

          She writes the post. I just help pick the winners. Please ask her. If it is OK with her, it is certainly OK with me, but as I said I don’t write it; she does. I just paste it into my blog.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Kellie,
      I will be linking to you on Saturday.

  2. John Doe

    The pit stop just keeps growing and growing.

  3. Margaretha

    Thank you for hosting. Have a great week-end!

    • Janice Wald

      My pleasure! You too!

  4. Gary Jefferies

    Back again being shameless and needy ?

    Love these hosting opportunities to meet new people and find new blogs to explore and comment on. Kudos to the team that take the time and energy to put them up and offer help to newbies like me ?

    I live here

    Although I will wager Janice is going to evict me soon as I appear to have moved in !!!!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Gary,
      You are always welcome. Your comments are SO funny. I look forward to them. Did you see on the last Meet and Greet someone else commented as to what a great writer you are?
      You live here? Great! There’s plenty of leftover cake from the last blog party!

      • Gary Jefferies

        They are?? I’ve never considered myself as funny if truth be told!! Was that comment from Trulyunplugged by any chance? We’ve kind of linked up both here and on Facebook which is uber cool and entirely down to you and the team. Might drift over and check out any late drop in at the party tomorrow. This connecting is a bit addictive ?

        Of course being addictve means I’ve neglected to write anything all week!! Must post something this very weekend. Shambolic of me really !!!!

        • Janice Wald

          Hi Gary,
          Thanks for writing.
          1. Networking is definitely addictive.
          2. Yes, I believe it was Truly.
          3. I host blog parties every other Saturday, so there’s no party tomorrow I am afraid. I hope you’ll still come by anyway. I have a mega-post planned!

  5. Sofie

    Thank you for hosting again this week! Such a great opportunity 🙂
