Drop & Run Link Party

{Introducing} The Drop & Run Link Party #1

Introducing a new link party: Drop & Run Wednesdays!

We bloggers are a busy bunch.  On top of writing and editing and photographing and more editing, we need to promote too.

Link parties are a great way to mingle and read new blogs, but they can take up a lot of time.  You’ve got to add the link to your post, and then follow the rules for each specific link-up, whether it’s commenting on a certain number or following your host on social media or tweeting about the link party … it can really add up.


So here’s my solution: a link party with NO rules.  That’s right, you can drop your link and run.  No requirement to link back to this party, no rules about commenting on other’s posts, and no need to follow anyone on Facebook (… or Instagram or Twitter …).

What do you get out of it?  Exposure for your blog, of course, without a whole lot of work ;-).

And of course, if you have time to share the love, you are more than welcome to check out a few other posts, subscribe to my newsletter, or follow me or any of the other blogs on social media.  But if you don’t have time, that’s okay!

So without further adieu, here is the First Ever Drop & Run Link Party!

    I actually used to participate in linky parties all the time, but stopped for some reason. I need to get back into them. Some of my best blogging friends were met that way.

    LOL to the name of your linky. I totally agree it’s a lot of work keeping a blog. I don’t even do photography, but writing and editing and finding images sometimes is hard enough.
