Friendship Friday #6 – Weekend Of February 17, 2012

Friendship Friday Button

Welcome to Friendship Friday – a weekend blog hop that’s designed to help you:

  • Foster friendships with other bloggers!
  • Share what’s unique about yourself and your blog!
  • Grow your blog and social media networks!

Are you ready to make some new friends? Then, come join the fun! Please follow these friendly guidelines:

1) Each week, I’ll post a question that’s designed to help you get to know one another a little better. To participate, simply create a Friendship Friday post that includes the Friendship Friday blog hop button and/or a link back to this post – then add your permalink to the party! This will let everyone know that you’re participating in Friendship Friday and allow other participants to easily interact with you!

You can also participate by adding the Friendship Friday button to your sidebar and answering the Question of the Week in the comments!

2) If you haven’t already done so, please subscribe to Create With Joy and leave a comment so that I can reciprocate! You can follow me by:

3) Leave a sweet comment so I’ll know you stopped by! Your suggestions for upcoming questions of the week are welcome too!

4) Visit your fellow participants and get to know them – building friendships is what this blog hop is about! Support the bloggers you connect with by leaving a comment and following their blogs through one of the available subscription methods on their blogs!

This blog hop will be open all weekend so that you have plenty of time to post, link and mingle! Have fun making friends and be sure to join me next week for Inspire Me Monday and Wordless Wednesday!

    Hi I have been following for a while and realise now that I have linked up to Wordless Wednesday before some time ago! I have linked up to Friendship Friday once before and this is my second link up. Thank you for having me here and for a great idea. Your idea for Frienship Friday inspired me to come up with my own Blog it Forward Series ( not a linky party ~ I still have to figures that one out!!! Phew!!)…which I started last week, and I am having freat fun with it. So , a big warm thank you to you for planting a seed in my head! Again, it just goes to show what a wonderful community bloggers are and how much we are able to inspire each other. I am so grateful for being part of it all! Thank you.

    I love blog awards!!! They’re a fun way to learn more about each other and to show appreciation for the blogs we love. I’ve, also, come across some blogs that I wouldn’t have normally found or thought of reading by the different awards that have been bestowed upon some of my regulars.

    Happy Friday! Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!!
