It’s Shout-Out Saturday April 20!!
You can find Shout-Out Saturday from last weekend here. You definitely don’t want to miss those amazing blogs! Let’s move onto Shout-Out Saturday, April 20 Edition!
Writers often get inspiration from other writers. Often times, if I am feeling stuck I can find motivation for my next blog topic by immersing myself in other blogs. Here are a few of my go-to blogs. Need some new reading material? I invite you to check each one of them out. You will not be disappointed.
This week I am doing Shout-Out Saturday a little differently. When I first started my blog in August of last year, I felt a little discouraged because I wasn’t getting the views I wanted. However, now I understand it takes time and I was being a little impatient. In November of last year, I stumbled upon a little linky called Keep Calm and Carry On Linking Sunday (KCACOLS). This linky is ran by Franca from A Moment with Franca.
Since finding Franca’s linky, my views and followers have increased. I have also found many new blog favorites and met some blogging friends along the way. These bloggers are so talented and above all, they have all been super friendly and supportive. It is a kind and supportive group. I wanted to give a little shout-out to a few of my favorites and I will be doing more each Saturday so that I can include them all as a thank you for supporting me on this crazy journey, called blogging.
I hope you enjoy!
