I do love a good linky, which is probably fairly obvious from my blog! They are of course a good way to increase traffic to your own blog, we all know this, and it’s one of the primary reasons we join in. But, it’s also a great way to find new blogs and to read some wonderful posts that you probably wouldn’t have found otherwise.
I also find them inspirational, not just in terms of giving me ideas for writing a post, but also through the other posts that I then read: different interpretations of a theme, different viewpoints, creative ideas and activities. And then there’s the community. Each linky has its regulars and sometimes it feels a little like meeting friends in a cafe, grabbing a cuppa, pulling up a chair and telling each other about your latest project/moment/opinion. Sharing your ideas and having a chat :)
