Inspire Me Monday 1 graphic

Welcome to the Inspire Me Monday Linky Party for the week of October 12. Thank you for joining us.

I had an interesting week. My Reddit article was favorably received even though the site itself is more controversial than I realized.  Shoutouts go to Antonio and Michael for promoting my article on their sites.

On Tuesday my guest author published an article explaining how to get more traffic from Twitter. It explains how you can use your blog graphics for this purpose.

On Thursday, I published my Weekly Link Roundup, Best Links of the Week. If you would like to get acquainted with new bloggers and find new blogs to read, look it over.

The format of the Weekly Link Roundup will be changing this Thursday.  Blogger Charles Rogers had an idea to make it a Geographical Link Roundup featuring bloggers from all over the world. I am already familiar with many bloggers from the United States.

If you follow MostlyBlogging, and you are from a country outside of the United States and would like to be featured, please let me know your home country in the comments section.  Please provide a link to a post you’d like promoted. Note: You do not have to blog about blogging to be featured.

On Friday, I was interviewed by Debby Kaye on her blog! I was beyond thrilled by the kind words she had to offer about my blog in her review of MostlyBlogging.

On Saturday, I was nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award. A shoutout goes to my friend and fellow blogger Susan for nominating me.

Also on Saturday, I published my fourth expert interview.  Interest is great in how to get new blog followers, so I asked the experts how they decide which blogs to follow, and I published their answers with the criteria.  (Note: If you subscribe to MostlyBlogging and would like to be added to the blog’s Follow to Follow Directory, let me know in the comments section.)

Some commenters expressed they were surprised by the answers which made them reassess their blogs. Thanks to Chris, the Story Reading Ape for promoting my interview on his site.

On Sunday, I published a comprehensive guide to blogging tools.  These tools will enhance productivity for anyone who creates site content including photographers. #31 is a bonus tool.

Now, let’s talk about you.

I was actually torn among eight posts this week, which is a high for me.  All eight were inspirational, but some of the bloggers had recently been featured here, and I was trying to spread the blog love around.

My first choice was Social Media Weekly Tips {1}.  Andrea, the admin blogger, covers five social media sites and gives tips for each including the relatively new Periscope which many bloggers are still curious about.

My next choice for Most Inspirational Post went to Holly’s 5 Reasons to Keep Blogging When You Want to Give Up. Holly relives her first year of blogging, which just ended. She celebrates her blogversary by sharing what she learned along her blogging journey. The tips should inspire many newer bloggers not to quit if they ever feel tempted.

And the winner is…

We had 352 links last week, more than the week before.  The thought that we are still continuing to grow is exciting.

Out of 352 links, the post clicked on the most often was… Gluten Free Energy Muffins and Giveaway. Congratulations to the winners.

Although it is not required, it is considered polite to follow your hostess!

That’s me! I’m Janice!

Meet Your Other Hostesses

The linkup is now on seven blogs, so your one post will be seen on my blog plus six other blogs!

Each host picks their own two favorites.  In addition to exposure here, graphics from the winning posts are pinned to the Inspire Me Monday Pinterest Board. The party is live until Thursday morning.

      Hi Chris,
      Thanks to CommentLuv, I can see your recent headline. I love it! (If you get a moment, I’d still love a testimonial).
      Thank you so much for writing me to tell me about the increase in opportunities for you at this linky party. Your comment came in while I was at work. I was beaming after I read it. Seriously, it gives me such joy to help, I appreciate you letting me know.

      Hi Holly!
      I loved your article; you deserved it. It was my pleasure.
      You might want to check back here tomorrow. Your post was about sticking with blogging when you want to quit.
      My guest author scheduled for tomorrow is dealing with blogging disappointments. If you get a chance, check back; perhaps you could offer her a word of encouragement.
      At any rate, thank you for coming to my linky party, and congratulations again.
