How to Share… We're Doing Things a Bit Differently Today

This week, we're doing things a bit differently. I've been hosting this link-up for more than four years – and I want to know how much it's helpful.

So today, we're doing everything in the comments. πŸ™‚

First of all, if you have a link to contribute, place it in a comment (it's totally up to you whether you want to put one link per comment or all your links in one consolidated comment).

Then, leave a comment telling me:

  • YES, you would love to see this link-up continue OR
  • what makes this link-up unique OR
  • a comment telling me why you think it's time for this link-up to end OR
  • whatever other opinion you would like to share regarding the future of the link-up.

And that's it!

Basically, I only want to continue the link-up IF it's actually useful to you all and this is the best way I can think of to glean that information.


As usual, please share the post widely, please link back to this post if you have shared a link, and most of all – have a great week!

    Happy Monday! I just started up my blog again and adding my links to link parties, and I like them. I always seem to miss the boat on getting my link in early, though, even though I’m up early!! I haven’t seen your link parties since this is my first time here. But I do like the Pinning Parties (where you link up and pin other peoples stuff). Anyway, thank you for hosting. πŸ™‚

    I would like to see your blog hop continue because you seem to attract more things that I like then the other blog hops do! lol Plus it gives me a reminder to head over and poke around on your site a bit every week!

    Thanks for featuring my Herbal Sleep Tea recipe! I am so very flattered!

    Hi Kresha,
    I look forward to participating in Thank Goodness It’s Monday, because it is one of the few weekly blog carnival celebrating healthy, natural, joyful and sustainable living and that’s important to me–so I hope you continue to host this very special blog hop, on your very special blog!
