Link-up Parties

Trying to build your tribe? I have collected a fantastic list of linky parties that will have you out there making connections in no time!

Recently, I have been working on “finding my tribe” or networking with other bloggers.  I have joined a couple of blogging groups on Facebook, done an Instagram photo of the day challenge, and focused more energy connecting on Twitter.  I have also started posting to link-up parties on various sites.

I didn’t understand link-ups until very recently (like only a month ago, for reals).  It was something I heard mentioned occasionally on social media, but I had no idea what people were talking about until I accidentally found one on the Sitsgirls site.

Link-ups are great opportunities to share your work, discover new blogs and maybe even get featured on another site!  I have really started to connect with a few other bloggers due to a Saturday morning link-up, and I am working on cultivating relationships at other parties.

So in an effort to help others connect, here is a list of parties for each day of the week. Get out there and link-up!

 


MONDAY:

Monday Madness

The Monday Madness link party is the place to add your best family friendly post for the week.  You can link up to 3 posts each week, and the host pins the links added to her Monday Madness Pinterest board.

Now, I don’t share to all of these every week, but I shoot for one a day as it can be a rather time consuming endeavor, reading and commenting on several posts (and you definitely should read and comment!).  I like to read 2-4 posts that catch my eye and leave comments, pin 1 or more recipes, and I usually stumble a post or two that I enjoyed but don’t really have a relevant comment to make, you know to spread the blogger love 😉
What is your favorite link-up?

  1. Thanks for the list. I found a few new ones. I agree linky parties are so time consuming. I’d love to learn more about how you are finding a tribe and if participating in FB groups has been beneficial. As a relative newbie, I’d love to find a bloggy friend (or two) to help me figure this whole new world out! Visiting from Saturday Sharefest.

    1. Victoria, Thanks for stopping by! I have found FB groups can go either way. One of the groups I have joined is HUGE and it is just so many posts and so much information it can be overwhelming. I have found a lot of useful information there, but some days it is just too much to even try and read. Now, I am also a member of a smaller group (around 50 people at the moment) and the smaller group is much better for making connections and having actual conversations. I will email you a link to the group in case you would like to join, it is private and she is capping the member total at 75.

      I have found the SITSgirls twitter party to be a great way to find like-minded bloggers as well. I don’t always have time to participate, but the couple of times I played it was pretty great. I hope this helps and good luck 🙂

  2. Hi Dara,
    Thanks again for coming by my blog today. I have blogged about how to network often.
    I actually put together a pretty comprehensive list how to meet new bloggers by networking. I hope it’s okay if I leave the link here. You may find it helpful.

    PS I have an Inspire Me Monday Linky Party on Mondays and
    a Blogger’s Pit Stop Linky Party on Thursdays.
    Some Mondays, my linky gets over 400 guests.

    1. Janice, Thank you for the link and the tips about your linky parties! I can’t wait to check those out 🙂

  3. WOOO what a great list! I am SO new to the whole blogging world and the thing that I am failing at miserably right now is FINDING link ups! You’re my hero! I’m going to stick to 2 or 3 per week right now, so I don’t spend all my time linking and reading lol. Thanks so much for this Dara!

    1. Glad I could help Carly! I had a hard time finding them at first as well. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Thanks for sharing this list! I enjoy Link Parties and try to do a few each week. Another one you might want to add is Turn It Up Tuesday (epicmommyadventures.com). It starts Monday nights at 8pm. Everyone is encouraged to share as many posts as they like old and new.
