Weekly Linky Guide – January 2019 Update

Hello everyone. This weeks post is my 6 month update of the weekly linky guide for any blogger friends who may find such a thing useful. I totally understand if the non blogging people want to sneak off now and have a coffee instead.

For those of you still here, I’m sure you are aware of the benifits of joining in with linkies. If not they :-

  • Help bloggers get their posts seen.
  • Linking to successful blogs can help raise DA.
  • A great way to get to know other memebers of the blogging comminity.
  • A way to find new blogs to follow.

Now I realise I have called this a weekly linky guide, but its come to my attention that there are some great monthly linkies out there too, so I have added them to this updated list too.

Running a weekly linky is a  very time consuming thing,  so there are always new linkies starting and old linkies that stop running. Therefore I like to review my  linky guide quite regularly to see which ones have ended and what new ones have started.

There have been a lot of fabulous new linkies that have started up since I last updated and a few that have unfortunately gone by the wayside.

All the start times are given on UK times. Click on any of the badges in this post to take you through to that linky, or click on the host names to be taken to their Twitter pages.

    When I started getting interested in joining link parties I found it tough to find a guide and a good listing. You have a great one here! Thank you!

    we run a #Project365 linky on a Saturday runs through until Sunday, you can start any time of the year, most of us did start on Jan 1st but can join in anytime it suits. A friendly group that share 1 picture a day every day for a year. It is a group run rather than one person hosting. here is mine from last week https://www.funasagran.co.uk/2018/07/project-365-week-28-and-29.html

    This is a very useful list, I’m always forgetting which linkies are on which days, so I need to keep this for reference! Another good monthly linky is the Kids Love To Read linky for posts about children’s books hosted by Laura’s Lovely Blog and The Inspiration Edit. Don’t remember if it’s on the first or second Monday of every month. #mixitup
