Weekly Linky Guide – January 2018 Update

Hello everyone. This weeks post is an update of my weekly linky guide for any blogger friends who may find such a thing useful, so 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.

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 (or that were already running but I didnt know about back in August) 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.

    Whew! Those are alot of linkies. I have five different ones just on Mondays lol. I have decided to cut back on the days I participate in them simply because of the amount of time it takes to post comments and share. Plus, I am trying to make time for my YouTube channel and other writing, which hasn’t started yet. Still trying to figure out my schedule. But I did add a few here and subscribed to their blogs so I can get the notifications. Thanks for the list Tracey! #MondayStumble
