It's All About Growing ...

by Dotti



What a pleasure to learn your websites! Thanks to all who joined in. I have looked at every one of these blogs and I want to tell you … they’re all delightful! I think you’ll enjoy them.

But before I get to the main blog list, I want to add two others from the FOL contributors. First is Carol A. who promises she will be getting her site up-to-date {okay, Carol – you’re on the spot, now!} so be sure to check her out in a few weeks at http://AlbersImage.com.

Next, I’m so happy to welcome our newest FOL Sister, Kelly Ishmael. Kelly hails from Tulsa, OK, and can be found at http://mindingmynest.com. Kelly will be posting here every other Tuesday beginning tomorrow so be sure to come back and visit. I think you’ll find her personal blog fun to follow and I know she’s going to bring us much fun and inspiration here at FOL. You can read more about Kelly and see her smiling face here on our About Us page.

Now … drum roll, please … Here is the list of blogs from our readers. Some of these I have already been following, others are new to me, but I’m so happy to have found more wonderful blogs to follow. You might say I’m a blog junkie!  So, after you’ve left us some love today at FOL, be sure to visit your other friends who are listed below. And do leave them some love, telling them that you’re visiting from our blog. Then, make it a practice to follow them regularly so we can all get to know one another better.


And to make it easier for you to keep up with your new blogging friends, including FOL, here’s a sweet little site that just might help you http://bloglovin.com. {Hat tip to Linda Owens for sharing this site with me.} Bloglovin will allow you to list your favorite blogs and then receive an email each time a new post is published. This is great because I know a lot of us don’t publish every day on our personal sites. While you know you can count on FOL six days a week, the rest of us are usually a bit more random. This site can also be used as a tool for promoting your own blog so you might want to check it out.

In closing today, I again want to thank everybody who participated and I do have one more favor to ask. If you scroll down to the bottom of our page, you’ll find our blog button. If you haven’t already done so, we’d be mighty happy if you’d grab it and paste it on your own blog, help us spread the word about our great little family here at FOL.

Make it a great day, friends!

Oooo the pressure! It's really my web site, and the updating will take a while. But oh well. You are all welcome!
I am so excited to go through this list! For me, hitting the blogs is like paging thru a magazine after work. What a great idea to gather them !

Yeah!! I can't wait to visit them all! I'm like, Dotti, a bit of a blog junkie! I switched over to Bloglovin and love how easy it is to use. Beautiful image. I envy you flower takers, I can't seem to accomplish that!! I just have to take a deep sigh and enjoy yours!!

I'm so glad to have a new list of blogs to hop. I visit a few of them on the list already, but can't wait to see all the talent you all share. Thank you.

How great to be able to visit the personal blogs of some of our readers! Can't wait to read some of these blogs that I haven't been to before. Bloglovin' is a great way for your favorite blogs to come to you rather than you having to remember which ones you like to visit. Thanks to everybody who participated and added their blogs to our list. We'll be seeing you on your blog now as well as here!

i am familiar with some of the blogs on the list and looking forward to checking out the others. and glad to know about the blog lovin link because i've read that the google reader is being discontinued.

also so thrilled and honored to be a part of the FOL family. this group has been such an inspiration to me and i am looking forward to growing along with you all. and i promise...no stories about my cat's litter box or pictures of hairballs...i'll save that special treat for the readers of my personal blog. ;)
