Thursday Weekly Round Up 1

By: | August 6, 2015 | Tags: ,

Weekly Link Round UpWelcome to my new site!  Since self-hosted bloggers can not reblog other’s posts, instead of reblogging and featuring one blogger, I will be featuring three bloggers as part of this series each Thursday.

The Best Links of the Week

1. In Pinterest For Content Bloggers – Setting Up Your Profile, Elena, from Fabulous 50 and Living With Batman, offers great advice for increasing referral traffic coming from Pinterest.  According to her instructions, she was able to increase her referral traffic coming from Pinterest to her blog by 489%!  I can’t wait to try her tips!

2. Xiaohuamaobiji, from Little Calico’s Journal, wrote Book Review: The Huffington Post Complete Guide to Blogging.  HIs review is so inspirational, I was persuaded to read the book, which is a must-read for any blogger or anyone considering blogging.

3. A Clueless Blogger Gets a Clue is laugh-out-loud funny.  D. Wallace Peach from Myths of the Mirror, humorously describes her first-year blogging journey which was met with foibles I’m sure many of us can relate to.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s selections.

If you would like to submit a blogging, writing, technology, or productivity link for my Thursday Weekly Round Up series, please put it in the comment section.  Thank you.

      Hi Melinda,
      I laughed so hard when I read it. I found out after the fact that she had submitted it for publication here. I was glad. I have recently followed her as well.

    Although my blog is not about blogging, per se, there are a couple of posts with links on the Fiona page that tell a little about my jouriney. My last but one post celebrated my 100th post.

    And thanks for what you do to support bloggers!

    Good day Janice! First of all, thank you so much for featuring my review in this week’s round up, this means so much to me and I really really appreciate this! Secondly of course, a BIG congratulations to you on getting this new site up and running. Everything looks great and I’ve subscribed to your mailing list.

    I’ve visited the other 2 bloggers mentioned and I think their posts are great motivation for blogging. I love using Pinterest but I didn’t know it could boost viewing traffic by that much, now I’m interested and would love to learn more. Thank you for sharing their posts 😀

      Hi Yen,
      What nice comments. You wrote a great review. It deserved exposure. I am about half way done with the book. I’m glad you like the new site. I certainly think “Mostly Blogging” is a better name for a blogging tips site. Thanks for writing!

      Hi! Welcome! I saw all three Toy Story movies, so tell me why you think so. I am a movie trivia fan, and I’m sure I will remember the reference. I recently saw Night Crawlers. For some reason it reminds me of Jake Gillenhall’s company at the end of the movie, but I can’t pinpoint why.
      I needed a name that shows this is a blogging tips site but not exclusively about blogging.
      Let me know about Toy Story. I was originally an entertainment blogger before I decided to settle on blogging tips. Thanks for writing.

      Hi Jeanette,
      So sorry, I see your comment now. Woody’s Round Up. I do remember. However, “Roundup” is not in the name of my blog; it is in the name of my Thursday series. I am rounding up the best links I’ve found that week.

      Hi Janice,

      Like I was saying before I hit the comment button by accident. LOL. I love your new site. Looking forward to reading the wonderful content you offer for bloggers. I have already put a lot of what you recommend and I am beginning to see the results. Cant wait to see what great insight you bring next.

      • Janice Wald | at 1:05 pm

        Hi Hilda! Thank you for the nice compliments. I am so glad you got notification of this post. I was concerned that you were not subscribed as you know. So glad you are getting more traffic as a result of my tips. Thank you so much for telling me.

    I love love the new site. I am sorry you can not reblog but ingenious idea on selecting links. Very creative on your part but with your talent I would expect nothing less. I hope self hosting brings nothing but a lot of success you certainly deserve it in light of all help you provide to all your followers.

    Hi Janice, thank you for stopping by my blog earlier. I’m glad to meet you too, and glad that you found my article interesting. I think people are always looking for inspiration to live and create 🙂 Some very interesting links here. Great job!

    I’ve just started blogging as a way to get me to keep writing. My journey was recently derailed after only one post due to the death of my beloved dog. Writing about it today has helped ease some of the pain, and I plan on getting into a weekly schedule.

    • Janice Wald | at 5:05 pm

      Hi Leah,
      I wrote on your site I was going to leave links to posts I’ve written about my dog’s passing in hopes of providing comfort. is the link to the tribute I wrote about him written within 24 hours of his death.
      I do have a post which details the extremely different ways my husband and I coped (and are coping) with our dog’s loss, but due to the at times humorous tone, I wouldn’t want to be perceived as insensitive about an event so heartbreaking.
      I have a dog still with me, Minnie. She is twenty years old. I can not even dread to think about the day we will have to say goodbye. My thoughts are with you. Thank you for sharing your loss with me.

            He would have been 8 this September 8th. Cancer was diagnosed just after he turned 7. He fought hard. We fought hard. It’s only been 9 days, but feels like forever.

          • Janice Wald | at 10:34 pm

            9 days! I had the impression it had been a month!

          • Anonymous | at 7:07 pm

            Don’t know why it says anonymous. Maybe because I’m on my kindle.

    Ten days ago. We helped him go on July 29. He was such a wonderful, beautiful, headstrong boy. I look at all the pictures I have of him and still can’t believe he’s gone. One of the things I read about your baby was that other people have had the experience of caring for a dog deepens the connection. I told someone that a few days ago. My love for Levi was bottomless, and yet I found caring for him over the last 7 1/2 months during this illness deepened that love. I loved him even more when he was sick and feeble as I did when he was a baby, young, strong, and able bodied. I feel like a limb is missing. A huge part of me is gone. Taking care of him, his meds, his meals, the timing of his medications, was the focus of my life during his illness. Now there’s just emptiness. I’ve never had children of my own. Levi was my baby.
