Remember when Linkys were all the rage in blogging? They were a great way to find and get to know other bloggers before social media and Pinterest became mainstream. It didn’t hurt that they brought a ton of traffic to your site too. Lindsi and I started our Fun Stuff Fridays linky back in 2011. We kept it going for 20 weeks before it fizzled out (or we got sick of doing it, I’m not sure which happened).
It is now soon to be 2017 and at lot of the links in those linkies no longer exist. Plus, I’ve let my link up subscription lapse so you can’t get to them anyway. Instead of deleting the Fun Stuff Fridays posts, however, I have decided to clean them up and make sure our featured links are still valid. After all, on a rare occasion I get traffic from one of these old posts. The linky may be gone but the featured posts are still valid as of December 2016…
Welcome to Fun Stuff Fridays. We had 305 submissions last week! Ohmigosh! Do you wonder if we look at them all….and the answer is YES! We DO go through every sing one and check them out. We figure if you take the time to submit then we can take the time to visit! We love seeing what our readers have been up to and cannot wait to share some of our favorites! We wish we could feature all of them! Can’t wait to see your amazing submissions this week! Feel free to submit as many ideas as you want over that time. And remember- spread the word!
One thing we’ve added is something that we hope you will like. We’ve been pinning each weeks featured picks into their very own Pintrest board! We hope it brings you loads of linky love….you’ve earned it! You can find our Featured Pintrest Board HERE!
Our joint favorite pick was the Magnetic Mouse Traps submitted by Suzy’s Artsy Crafty Sitcom. Neither of us had ever seen a craft with mouse traps before so this one stood out- BIG TIME. This is o cute, so fun, and PERFECT for displaying your kid’s artwork!
Jamie’s number one pick was Glass Portraits submitted by Our Feminist Play School. This idea is completely unique, easy, and so much fun! Your kids can trace you or you can trace your kids! Each time you do it, it will come out a little different too. Gonna have to try this with my girls! (Link no longer exists)
Lindsi’s number one pick was Rock Star Party submitted by Michelle Paige. This is one rockin’ party (pardon the pun). This party had a list of fun activities, great games, and super decor! I was especially fond of the “decorate sunglasses” station. What a neat idea!
