Inspire Me Monday Linky Party #45

Inspire Me Monday 1 graphicWelcome to the Inspire Me Monday Linky Party for August 10.  We are so pleased you decided to join us.

My humorous Lifehack article Everyone’s Always Looking at Their Smartphones was published.

On Wednesday I found out that one of my articles was included in the online publication The Real Sh*t Daily.  I was alarmed to think I’d written anything that would qualify for a publication with that name.  I write family-friendly stuff, you know?  I was amused to see it was my Lifehack article about the disadvantages of using smartphones.

On Wednesday I started this new site Mostly Blogging.  Thank you for finding your way here to my new online home.

On Friday my guest post, How to Use Pinterest to Get Massive Amounts of New Readers. appeared on Chris the Story Reading Ape’s blog.  Happily, my article was reblogged eight times!  I was also able to meet wonderful new bloggers who were part of Chris’s community.

On Saturday, I had a blog party, sort of an Open House to welcome the world to my new blog.  It was a great success.  Saturday I reached my highest page views since I started blogging!  If you didn’t get a chance to drop by over the weekend, I hope you will click the link and come.  There are many bloggers waiting to meet you.

Now, let’s talk about you.

Although there were four blogs in contention, I had to narrow my choices for Most Inspirational down to two.

My first choice for Most Inspirational went to Adrian of Adrian’s Crazy Life for her post Women Helping Women with Kiva.org.

Although Adrian describes a sad situation, the difficulties of impoverished women, her post actually made me feel uplifted.  Her article describes how these poor women who have no collateral to apply for a loan get financing.

My next choice for Most Inspirational went to Confessions of a Ninja Mom’s Small Victories in Motherhood list.  Talk about a comprehensive list! These thirty happy moments of mothering made me nostalgic as I recalled those “victories” I had with my own daughters like the ability to be punctual and sneak in some sleep.

Starting today, the link up will be a little different.  There will now be three blogs featured!

Have you ever wondered, of all the links we receive on seven blogs, which post gets read the most?

Last week we received 328 posts, and the one clicked the most was…

Homemade Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting.

Congratulations to the winners!

It is considered polite to follow your hostess!

Meet Your Hostesses

This linkup is on seven blogs, so your one post will be seen on my blog plus six other blogs!  Each host picks their own favorites.  The party is live until Thursday morning.

    Hi Nicole,
    I just came from your site; thank you for providing the link. I was going to comment there, but I didn’t see a place to comment. What I did see was 79 social shares on Twitter. How do you get so many social shares? If you have tips/methods, and you’d like to guest post on my site, you would be welcome.
    As far as your question. Honestly, I am not much of a help. CJ, who is first on my list of co-hosts, has the InLinkz account. She enables me to copy a code which I paste into my post. When I go back into Virtual mode, what you see is what I see.
    A thought though, when I self-hosted, I had to change the type of code I needed. Perhaps check to make sure it’s accurate. For example, you would have to move it to self-hosting I believe as well.
