"Linky" Attempt... I'll Give Myself a C.

Part of my attempts to learn more about blogging has led me to be reading up on "linkys" and "mrlinky" and the like.  I have to say... it seems to be way over my head.  LOL.  But I'm going to try it out and hope to do this right...

I'm participating in a Friday Blog Hop called Fun Follow Friday hosted by Simply Stacie and My Wee View, both pretty cool blogs if I do say so myself.

I have attempted to add this "linky" (is that right? LOL) to this post a few times before I realized there's a little button up there that says "edit html" and... after a quick preview.... I did it!  So I'm still pretty confused about the linky business but I've taken a small step I think!  :)  AND I'm looking forward to meeting new lovely bloggers on this hop!

OK I did just realize after a not quite final preview that I am only showing the blogs listed on the hop but not the intro.  I'm not sure if that's right or not... I feel like I should be including the intro... And the button!  Where is the button?  Ugh... I promise I'm not quite as computer illiterate as I may seem... but html speak is definitely beyond my scope.  So I'm going to copy what I can and paste it here for now and hope that someone will be nice enough to take pity on me and explain what the heck I'm doing wrong!  :)

Welcome to Fun Follow Friday hosted by Simply Stacie and My Wee View. The goal of this hop is to get new Google Friend Connect Followers for your blog and be introduced to new blogs to follow! We wanted to keep it fun and easy so all you have to do is add your blog link and start blog hopping and following away! You aren’t required to write a post for your blog for Fun Follow Friday unless you want to (but we really appreciate it if you do to help get the word out).

When you visit a blog that you like and want to follow, leave them a comment with your link telling them you are following from the Fun Follow Friday. Of course, we would love for you to follow both hostesses blogs, Simply Stacie and My Wee View, but it isn’t mandatory. If you do follow us, just leave us a comment and we will follow you back.

The main goal is to have fun and follow the blogs that interest you!

There are a few fun things that Fun Follow Fridays does each week:

1.  Each week 1 winner will be randomly drawn for the #3 Spot, this week it’s WAHM Resource Site.

Happy hopping along!


  1. I'm now following you from Fun Follow Friday!

    The recipe above sounds good, but I wouldn't want it that spicy... heartburn would kill me, lol.

  2. Cookie Art is my blog too. I'm following you back.

    Yes learning the in's and out's of blogging is hard. I haven't attempted the linky thing yet.

  3. Love your recipes- I have a fridge full of LC blue cheese and sundried tomato cheeses right now, and your pizzas sound like a good place to use them. I'll have to try one of your recipes out!

  4. I attempted to put the linky on my blog as well--I still got a LOT to learn!! Following back!!

  6. I'm Impressed! I, too, want to start blog hop, but feel that I am too much of a techno-idiot to get it right.
