Mondays with Countrified Hicks #3

Don't forget to grab the "button" on the right hand side of the page.

   Last week I messed up and did not do the link up with photos.  Sorry for my mistake.  I am learning and hope I will get this all figured out soon.  We ended up with 58 link ups last week.  (Hoping to reach over 100 like the first week this week).  Anyway, the most clicked on entry last week was:

Front Line Moms and their post on The Top 10 things I want my Daughters to know about Boys
                                          AND
Yesterfood and their post on Oven Tacos

If your blog was featured, feel free to grab the "Featured" button below to share on your wall.

  11. Hi Melody!

    Thanks for hosting another great party! I want to encourage you not to get bummed out about having less at your party last week than the first week. You put a lot of work into advertising that first week---I saw your comments all over the place inviting people to your new party. Realistically, you're not going to be able to do that every week as you'll spend way too much time and come to resent your blog. I've been hosting my link party for a year or so now and have found that I have a handful of those who always link up and then I have several that are hit and miss---whenever they remember. Something I've done that has increased traffic to my parties is to keep a separate contacts list in my email for people who have linked up. Whenever I have someone new link to my party, I put their email in that list. Each week when my linkup goes live, I send out a mass email to all those people, reminding them of the party. (I make sure to use BCC so I'm not sharing their email addresses with everyone). I add a note at the bottom each week letting them know that they're receiving the email because they linked up and they just need to let me know if they want me to take them off the list. Many people have thanked me for the reminder and I've only had a couple that have asked to be removed. For myself, I add parties to my linky party tab to help me remember each week---and your party is there!

    Hope you have a great day! I'm hosting my Homemaking Linkup Weekend and would love to have you join, if you haven't already!

    1. Sarah, thank you so much for taking the time to write me. It meant a lot. I did what you recommended and set up an email list so I can send it out to people. You're right, it does take so much time and we all have families and lives that must come first.
      Hugs,
      Melody

  16. Melody, is it too late to link up? I can vote, but no option to link up. I just saw your post on fb & came over! I never have been able to get emails about your blog posts- but I subscribed again & I hope I won't miss any more posts. Also, I grabbed your button and I'll head over each week for your party. :)
