Welcome to the Inspire Me Monday Linky Party for March 28. I hope you had a nice Easter yesterday if you celebrate that holiday.
Weekly Wrap Up
On Tuesday, my guest author wrote 2 Things You Need to Know to Get SEO Traffic, Part II. SEO becomes much easier to understand and improve after looking at my guest author’s amazing infographic.
On Saturday, I held a Start-of-Spring Meet and Greet. The party is still going on, and I hear there is still some virtual cake left. Please join us. You may leave with new blog readers as well as a piece of virtual cake.
On Sunday I wrote 23 New Pinterest Boards You Can Make Now and Why You Should offering advice on how to counteract Pinterest’s Smart Feed changes and still get your posts visibility. I’m happy to say the methods described in the post are already working for me, and I just started applying them.
Did you win last week? This is the place to find out! I love suspense, and I hope you do too. All your Easter recipes and crafts were impressive, but I decided to pick two other posts as the most inspirational.
The Busy Budgeter had quite a week last week, but I was left with a dilemma. I was torn between two of the Busy Budgeter’s posts. Because the rules state that a blogger can only be featured once each week, I could not choose both. However, because she was already getting featured for a third post she linked, I couldn’t pick either of her two that I found inspirational. Congratulations to the Busy Budgeter. The most clicked post of the week went to her The Quick Growth Blogger Resource Guide.
Wait until you hear how much competition she was up against. Last week, we had a record-high number of 485 posts linked! Inspire Me Monday guests, you rock!
Okay, so which posts did I choose once the Busy Budgeter was out of the running?
I always have been interested in psychology. Smiles and Sunshine examines the issue of perspective. I will let her words explain why I was intrigued by her post: I’ve always been fascinated with the idea that 5 people can experience the same thing and yet, have 5 different perspectives or stories about what happened. Her post takes a situation and examines it from different perspectives. Which one is right? Why both! Since the situation she examines relates to parenting, many should find it relatable. Check out her Perspective.
The next featured post was written by my friend Marie. This woman has always had my respect. From the moment I found out her large family doesn’t own a refrigerator, my respect grew leaps and bounds. According to the post, her husband is at work for ten hours into the wee hours of the morning. How does Marie deal with all this stress? In her post How to Manage Survival, she offers ideas for managing stress. Her practical tips are both concrete and abstract, but all of them valuable, for any kind of stress.
Congratulations to the winners!
It is considered polite to follow your hostess!
