Welcome to the Inspire Me Monday Linky Party for February 12. We are happy you joined us!

Weekly Wrap Up

Wednesday: I learned that another one of my posts is on the most-shared list at

My post How to Set Up Accelerated Mobile Pages for WordPress holds the #2 spot right behind a SemRush article!

If you could share it on your social media, so it holds the #2 spot or moves up, I’d appreciate it.

Thursday: I discovered my blogging tips ebook AN INSIDER’S GUIDE TO BUILDING A SUCCESSFUL BLOG was included on the list of 25 Must Read Amazing Books Every Blogger and Freelancer Must Read.

Saturday: I learned my review of the revenue-sharing site Virily was reblogged.

Sunday:  This Is Why Seasonal Blogging Factors Never Have to Be the Kiss of Death, 12 Tips, the study Gary Jefferies and I conducted explaining why bloggers have dips in traffic and what you can do about those slumps, was published.

Featured Posts

My first choice for Most Inspirational Post went to 3 of the Best Blog Parties 2018.  Okay, if I am coincidentally mentioned in the post, do I have to immediately disqualify the post from contention? I hope not because I didn’t. When I saw Betty’s headline, I hoped my bi-monthly Meet and Greets might have made the list of the best blog parties in 2018. Hey, I can have blogging dreams. Imagine my pleasant surprise when I found my party at #1! But, the surprise was on me when I saw it wasn’t for my Meet and Greet. This party, the Inspire Me Monday Linky Party, was named the #1 best blog party of 2018! I promise I was completely objective! Betty recommends two other popular linky parties as well. If you’re looking for more linky parties, you should click her link and check them out. I did.

My next choice for Most Inspirational Post went to I’m Bringin’ Organization Back (Yeah). Although the admin blogger gears her tips to mothers, her organization tips would be helpful to anyone looking to declutter.

The Most Popular Post at last week’s blog party was Chocolate Martini. Congratulations to the winners!


Although not required, for arranging this networking opportunity, it is considered polite to follow your hostess.

That’s me! I’m Janice!

    Congrats on being featured on Buzz Sumo Janice! That’s awesome. I will head over and give the post some shares now. Awesome how your presence is expanding every single day my friend. You’re a testament to both doing things right and persisting in building bonds and sharing value.

    If you will just see it through guys, the opportunities you crave will open up for you. Focus on service and you will be served in many ways, shapes and forms, through your blog and in life.

    Hi Everybody: Please read this comment from a disappointed linky party guest:

    I have tried several of your Linky Parties, including checking out links to other bloggers whose content are of interest. Thank you so much for hosting them!

    But I have not had any visitors from your site! We bree-ly feel people are missing out on something wonderful on Bree’s blog ! Do you have any ideas for Bree to help her promote her blog? Would you please post this in the comment section ? I am sure other bloggers feel frustrated at times, with good content but lacking skills to get traffic. Your site is a place to share with your grrr-eat linky parties! Am I not describing the content on link well enough? Any other issues you can see that I can correct?

    I recently had some comments from best selling authors on how much they loved Bree’s blog! So please, any advice is welcome! I know you have posted tons of advice over the years on how to generate traffic, plus other tips.

    For now, can you post this from a confused, overwhelmed blogger who will also leave a comment on your Linky “Partay””?
    I hope my fellow bloggers have a designated driver! ??
    As always, I love and appreciate what you do on your site that helps so many of us!

    Me again: Jeanine’s post is Link #212. Thanks for showing our guest some blog love!

    • Jeanine | at 11:42 pm

      Oh No! I sound really whiny and ungrateful!
      I did not mean to sound that way at all, so apologies! I am not a disappointed party guest, just had some questions.

      I am truly grateful for your site, Janice, and the opportunity to post here. So thank you to anyone who wants to come visit us.
      And we are happy to support you as well.
      Janice, you do you much for all of us with sharing your vast knowledge and information, and it is greatly appreciated.
      I love your blogs and your writing, and some of the other talented bloggers who also post here. I wish everyone well and success to all!
      Love, ALOHA, and positive energy from me and Bree! ????
