  1. No way, I got there first? Crazy! Maybe this is what happened when you only focus on a couple of blog hops/linkys each week. 🙂
    Thanks for hosting and have a fabulous weekend!

    Thank you for hosting!

    Thanks so much for hosting! Bon Jovi puts on a great show!

  6. Happy 2014!
    What a wonderful, joyful link up of ideas and inspiration!
    Thank you for hosting this!
    Today I shared “A New Year, A New You: 25 Green Resolutions for the New Year, Part 1”

    All the best,

  7. Hi,
    I am counting my many blessings this year!
    It’s a new year and a new you, so why not get your resolutions off to a good green start with
    an eco friendly party with friends, family and neighbors.
    I have added another post to this friendly party: “A New Year, A New You: Get Your Green Resolutions Off to a Good Green Start with an Eco Friendly Party!”
    All the best,

  8. As a relatively new blogger, I would have to say that my best blogging advice is to enjoy what you are doing and make new friends who share your passion and interests. And support other bloggers like you are doing here.
    I have found that the greatest joy of my blogging experience has been meeting other bloggers and hosting a blog hop in my niche on my blog,
    All the best,

      Deborah, that’s fabulous advice and I couldn’t agree more!

      People blog for a lot of different reasons, but I find that the ones who are most likely to be blogging long term are the ones who blog about those things they are most passionate about!

      I have met SO many awesome people and made so many wonderful friends along the way! Connecting with people within your niche is fabulous. One of the encouragements I would offer to new bloggers, however, is not to be afraid to connect with others outside your niche. I learn something from everyone I meet, and you never know what shared interests you may have, regardless of what you blog about!

      Have a wonderful weekend, Deborah. I’m so glad that you are a part of our community! 🙂

    I love Bon Jovi and this song is so moving. Thanks for sharing. Now I am trying to come with B and am going to go ahead and work on C. I really love the inspiration you provide each week and winning prizes is great too. 🙂

      I love Bon Jovi too and was tempted to post the whole unplugged album – but decided to show a little restraint today!
      I thought this was a great sentiment to kick the year off with.

      It’s been a tough week here.
      My sister-in-law – the one whose birthday we just celebrated – is in ICU and we are bracing ourselves for the worst.
      She was on my mind when I shared this song.

    I found some free Kindle BOOKS on gardening and raising chickens, so I included them in my post! Thanks for hosting!

    Thank you so much for the party. Glad to be back here, it’s been awhile since my last visit.

    Take care!

  12. Thanks again for another wonderful party….thanks so much!

    great tips on writing posts. I will use them when I run out of things to blab about. LOL> Have a great weekend.

    I read your interview on Litfuse. It’s always nice to get to know a blogger better. The Lord of the Rings trilogy is awesome, but I’m surprised you read it at age 9. Did you have a kid friendly version to read? I hadn’t heard of Litfuse before, or at least if I had, I wasn’t aware of who are what they were. God bless for the Best of 2014!

      Hi Christina,

      No, I read the original – discovered it on the bookshelves that summer and found myself immersed in Middle Earth!
      What a wonderful place to spend the summer!
      Litfuse is a wonderful company – they tour some really fabulous books! 🙂

    Hi Joy,
    Thanks for hosting, am having a ball, don’t know anything with b except that I have blogged.
    I hope that you have a wonderful day and weekend.
    Love and best wishes.

  16. Laura says:

    Thank you for hosting the best parties.
    I am sure I read great advice in the comments above but I will repeat.
    Write about what interest yourself, find others who also enjoy those topics. Support other bloggers. Become part of the conversations.
    You don’t have to blog daily but find a regular rhythm that works for you. Be consistent.

    I am struggling with life/blog balance at the moment.

    Great interview! I wanted to leave a comment but could not find where! ANyway- I love your book reviews. Happy Friday, Ramona!

    Thanks for hosting again! Have a super blessed weekend!

  19. Dee Williamson says:

    What a great idea for a link-up! I am definitely excited and anxious to find ways to be more creative. LOVE thinking outside of the box when given an opportunity.

    Thanks for hosting and I will be back with my B blog post! Yay!

    Have a great weekend, Miss R! :O) Oh, you’re not going to believe this. I signed up for the Resolutions Reading Challenge and saw your graphic over there. But I’m only doing one book, since it’s already the middle of the month.

    How ’bout if my favorite songs (well, one of them) is “Boondocks”. There’s a B. And I’m a B too (that’s my last initial and not a statement on my personality…ok, not most of the time.) *LOL*

  21. Julie says:

    Hi there! I am a brand new follower on Bloglovin’ and this is also my first time linking up! Can’t wait to “hop around” and meet everyone! Thanks for hosting!

    B = Believer
    I am a believer and I know that he has a plan for me. He keeps me strong and helps me get back up when I’m down.
    Blessings to you!!

  23. Yona says:

    I love all of your inserted ‘B’ words in your post.

    Hope you have a lovely weekend Ramona!

    I LOVE this Friendship Friday! I have been really inspired to blog! I added my post about BUNTING. Thanks for hosting!

    Hi Ramona,

    It’s my first at THIS wonderfully friendly party, although I’ve been a longtime guest at Inspire Me Monday, where I’m off to next! Why haven’t I taken notice of this lovely gathering before?!! Anyway, love Bon Jovi, and was pleasantly surprised to see them here; a great way to start my week!

    ‘B’ is for blogger buddies, who have I’ve been blessed to meet in this great big blogosphere, and have added just a little more balance to my days.

    Thanks so much for hosting and wishing you an amazing week!
