Monday Mingle #2


    Last week’s Monday Mingle was a huge success! We had a lot of great blogs participate and we got to meet and connect with some great people. I have seen a lot of blog hops that have complicated rules for participating and, as a result, the rules of Monday Mingle will always be easy and fun. So, no, you don’t have to sell your soul or give up your firstborn child to link up! Just have some fun! Here are the rules:


1) Don’t forget to follow me since I am the genius who came up with this idea!

2) Leave me a comment letting me know that you are following me through Monday Mingle so I can follow you back.

3) Follow as many blogs as you would like from the Linky and make sure that you comment that you found them through Monday Mingle so they can follow you back.

4)  Have fun and Mingle! 

5)  Feel free to snag the Monday Mingle button below and post it on your own blog to help spread the word.

Don’t forget to add your blog link to the Linky below and let us know who you are!

  1. Of course I already know you are awesome so am already following you. 🙂 Thanks for making this simple and fun!

    • Hi, Charlene. It is so good to hear from you! You are awesome too and you know I have been following you forever. I love the fact that this blog hop is simple and fun because, lately, I have seen too many conditions for participating in other blog hops.

  2. What a great idea Maria! I can’t wait to update my blog with your cute button and a new post! I’m looking for new people to read and for people to read me. I’m having such a struggle with writing and I’m afraid I’ve gotten into a rut.

    • I’m so glad that you like it! You will definitely get to meet some great people, we had 17 blogs participate last week for the first one which was a pretty good turnout. I’m sorry that you have been in a writing rut, maybe meeting some new friends will inspire you…

  3. Broken button! I tried to add it to my new post and the picture is broken on it. Is it an issue on my end?

  4. Here’s to another fabulous Monday Mingle! Today I’m providing the (virtual) treats 🙂

  5. Hi there – have linked up for the first time and am looking forward to reading your blog


  6. Can you email me with instructions on how to make a button? Not the button itself, but the code to make the box that holds the button’s code?

    Btw – love Monday Mingle (and you of course) 😉

    • Daria, I’m sorry that it took me all day to respond to you. As you know, I had parent-teacher conferences tonight and I got home really late. I promise I will email you the information when I get home tomorrow after work. I think you are awesome too!

  7. Following you from BabyDealsDujour, we list all the baby daily deals in real-time.

    Love to see you on Facebook and Twitter too.

    • Hi, Julie. Thanks for following. I will definitely be checking out your blog tomorrow afternoon. Today has been a hectic day with parent teacher conferences (I am a teacher) and I just got home a little while ago. Looking forward to getting to know you through your blog.

  8. Maria,

    I am following you (already) and I love that you’re doing this. This new blogging mama could use it. Great idea!

    Oh, and I am loving your blog. It looks fabulous!

  9. You’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award! Come over and see!

  10. I chose you for the Stylish Blogger Award. Check it out!
