Welcome to the Inspire Me Monday Linky Party for July 2. Happy July! We are so glad you joined us!

Weekly Wrap Up

Last week I learned my article, How to Use the 12 Top Digital Marketing Trends to Make More Money was the top article in the BizSugar community the previous week.

On Friday, I discovered my post How to Write a Better Blog Post in Half the Time is in third place at Buzzsumo for the keyword phrase “how to write a better blog.” If you could share my post on your Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Reddit accounts, it will help my post stay in third place or move higher.

Featured Posts

My first choice for Most Inspirational Post went to Sigrid’s post The Most Inspirational Life Quotes That Will Move You. Full disclosure: I had trouble getting through judging for this linky party. First, Sigrid won last week so my better judgment told me to pick someone else. However, Sigrid’s post is about “Inspirational” quotes and this is the “Inspire Me Monday Linky Party.” Next, and most important, when I tried to read the quotes, I kept stopping to put them in my Instagram queue. Since Sigrid’s post inspired me so much I had trouble getting through the judging, she should certainly win for having an inspiration post.

My next choice for Most Inspirational Post went to Evelyn’s Why I Love Real Books. The post was written by Evelyn’s daughter who grew up loving books. She shares why traditional books are preferable to books on today’s kindles.

The Most Popular Post Last Week was 4TH OF JULY DIY TERRACOTTA POT IDEAS ON A BUDGET. Congratulations to all the winners.

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

That’s me! I’m Janice!

 Meet Your Hostesses

The linkup will be seen on four blogs. Each host picks her own two favorites. In addition to exposure here, graphics from the winning posts are pinned to the Inspire Me Monday Pinterest Board. The linkup will be open until this Friday morning which gives you time to return with additional post links.

  1. Hello Janice,

    Ever since I started blogging, from time to time I wonder if anybody’s really reading my posts. I still keep on going because as I write each post, I always learn something new about writing and blogging.

    I feel honored that you are reading my posts, and thank you for sharing them with your readers. I really hope that my posts will inspire them in one way or another.


    • sometimes I wonder the same thing! Blogging is sometimes thankless, hard, and you always wonder if you’re doing it right. Sometimes I wonder if I’m ever reaching anyone but my DA is currently at 20 and my google analytics and affiliate links are getting clicks so I know I must be reaching someone. I think these link parties help out too because even if no one reads it today, someone will later and it helps to add our links into different websites too. Keep blogging and don’t give up!

    • Hi Sigrid,
      After reading this reply, I hope you’ll come back to the linky party and read the other comments you inspired.
      Your disappointment over believing people aren’t reading your writing set off additional comments from people who relate to your disillusionment.
      I love this! People are commenting at a linky party about your comments.
      Your comments have touched people. They have resonated with them.
      Thanks for your inspiration, not just with your inspiring quote post that so moved me but for the inspiration for others here to express their feelings.
      You rock! Please know that.
      Your friend and fan,

      • Hi Alice and Sigrid,
        1. Alice, thanks for responding. Blogs comments enable people to realize others are experiencing the same disappointments as well as joys.
        2. I wanted to share a link with both of you.
        I addressed how to get people to click your links and read your writing in this post. It was inspired by another linky party visitor who also expressed disappointment no one was reading her posts:
        This tells you how to get people to read your writing all over the internet.

  2. Hi Janice,
    Happy to be here again after a bit gap.
    Glad to see the tremendous progress here on these pages. I missed many during the season due to some pressing offline priorities.
    Good to be back, I just shared my updated post today.
    Wish all of them here a wonderful month of July 2018
    Keep sharing.
    Hope you had a wonderful month of June. 🙂
    ~ Phil

  7. Hey all,

    Yeah, I’m not sure if people read my posts either. And I don’t want to check analytics, because I believe they are too low. I don’t want to be discouraged 😉😛

    If this is the last one, then have a great summer, everyone!

    • Hi Marios,
      1. I hope you’re not considering giving up blogging.
      2. I left this link for the other linky party guests who expressed concern no one was reading their writing. This is how to get people to read your writing all over the internet:
