I wanted to talk to you about linkup parties! Because I happened to see this week that I’ve already hosted the Fancy Friday linkup party 202 times! Since 2018. And I started blogging in 2015. Gosh, I’ve been blogging for almost 8 years. And still not world famous, lol. But about the linkup party. I started it because I just like organizing and arranging things. I am a rule aunt (Or freak) We say it like that in Dutch, but I think it translates strangely. But since corona, I think, the popularity of blogging has decreased and linkup parties are not as much visited as before.
*I wrote this post a week ago. Since then my father passed away last Wednesday. After 4 months of fighting with all things wrong in his body. I miss you already dad.
Where are all the linkup parties?
I’m afraid that Tiktok and Instagram have kind of taken over blogging. Not with me, by the way. Although at a certain point I paid less attention to blogging because my followers on Instagram increased so nicely. Well, I am not only a control freak but also a numbers fanatic. But I don’t do much on Instagram anymore. Just don’t like Reels, not to look at and not to create. I just stay with static photos and a occasional reel. What happened with lives ay IG? Loved those!
I love blogging! And I love to host my linkup party. I named it the Fancy Friday linkup party. You know, Fancy….Nancy…..hum. I thought it was funny (you had to be there I guess….) I’m just sitting here laughing on my own. Anyway. I would really like it if Fancy Friday was visited a little bit better again. At one point I had over 100 entries. Now there are about 60 every week. And I’m very happy about that, but I would also like it if there were some new faces. I also see bloggers commenting but they don’t link anything. It’s a pity. It is a very nice way to put your blog or account in the spotlight. (like Caroline finally did!)
What is a linkup party then?
Well most of you know what it is, do I really need to explain? I think not, but if you have questions about it, you can always ask. Did you know that you can also linkup with your Facebook , Twitter or IG account? Whatever you like. And if you see a text or photo of another blogger that looks interesting, then pay her or him a visit. And please do leave a comment when you linkup, it’s a act of kindness isn’t it.
But why don’t we, bloggers that host a linkup party, promote them a bit better! Let a linkup party matter! I have a page on my blog where all the links are to linkup parties I used to visit. But it is really dated and is in need of some tlc. So if you host a linkup party and your link is not there, or perhaps on a wrong day, please let me know and I will refresh it!
My outfit of today matches the new colours of my blog doesn’t it! Just a everage outfit, trousers and sweater, nothing special. New trousers though.
My favourite of last week is: Caroline of The Petite Fashionista
