I have been blogging for seven years and it has been a learning curve for sure, and as technology changes and adjusts the social media platforms do the same and the learning curve is continually changing.
Once upon a time, blogs were all the rage. Readers followed closely, the audience was vast and then social media stepped onto the stage and bloggers had to adjust. Facebook and Instagram and Pinterest stole a bit of the spotlight and have become a form of micro-blogging offering a snap-shot or advertisement for what might be on the blog - the place where you can get "the rest of the story."
To support others and "share" an audience of readers link ups or linky-parties act as a sort of "central hub". One blog can direct you to many other projects, tutorials and inspiration in abundance.
Here is my current list of linky parties that I have been participating in for a while... these are just a few of the parties I have found... I am sure there are many more. If you host one, and would like to have it added to the list, leave a comment. I'll be more than happy to add it. If you participate in other parties that are not on this list... leave a comment. Again, I'll be happy to add to the list.

And just recently, I have started a Throwback Party. We celebrate and share each quilt finish as they are completed with pride... and then the quilt is gifted or donated, or tossed on the bed or couch and loved on...
