Welcome to Thank Goodness It's Monday, a weekly blog carnival celebrating natural, joyful living.
The TGIM link carnival has been happening every Monday here at Nourishing Joy for nearly five years and it's one of the longest-running blog link-ups specifically dedicated to living natural, intentional, nourished lives.
(We're rather proud of that!)
However, due to the fact that for the last few months, the link-up has increasingly become a dumping ground for links that don't pertain to the natural living niche, as well as the fact that the platform no longer allows me the type of control over content that it once did, click throughs have become nearly non-existent (meaning, people come and leave links without sharing the post or clicking through to read other people's articles, thus making the link-up rather pointless), and because of Google's ever-changing algorithms, link-ups don't provide enough “back link juice” anymore to make up for the lack of social sharing and post visits.
Thus, it is with a very heavy heart that I announce that Thank Goodness It's Monday is now drawing to a close. (Who know its future – it may return! If you'd like to know if it reopens, just fill out this form.)
Our Pinterest board will continue to be up and running and if you would like to contribute, you're more than welcome – please don't hesitate to ask via our Contact Us page. However, I WILL visit your blog before approving you to verify your site focuses on the natural living / intentional parenting / real food / sustainable & frugal living niche.
With much appreciation for nearly five good years and for all the work you do,
