Breaking Up Is Hard to Do - Saying Goodbye to Fabulous Friday

Pin It!
It's Friday, Blog Friends.
The day that I've been hosting a link party
for over a year.

I've really enjoyed it because it was
fun to visit your blogs, see your wonderful projects,
& meet new friends.

But . . . I'm throwing in the "link party" towel.

Here's why:
{The biggest reason is last}
  • In order for your link party to be a success, you have to host it every week. I tried every other week & it just never really got off the ground. Why didn't I want to change to an every week party? Because it takes a huge chunk of time to visit & comment on all the links. Since I blog about creative projects & ideas - it is really hard to make time for both.
  • I hate word verification. Can I get an "amen"? I mean I knew I was borderline dyslexic, but wow . . . sometimes it takes me three attempts to get it right so that I can leave a comment!
  • After years of vacillating, I applied for a Google Adsense account & I WAS DENIED! My blog was deemed "inappropriate". The only reason I can find is that Google doesn't like link parties. And there is a risk of disenfranchisement from the Google search engine. {I learned this at my last blogging conference & I didn't believe it until Adsense rejected me.} I've decided not to risk it any longer.
I'm truly sorry if I'm letting any of you down.
I'M STILL GOING TO VISIT YOU!

And many thanks to those of you who have been 
SO supportive. I heart you!
