Encouraging Hearts and Home: Thank Goodness for Linky Parties!

I know each week many of you thank me for continuing to co-host this party and while I appreciate your thanks, link parties just are not possible without blogger participation. SO I THANK YOU; each and every one of you for stopping by, reading, commenting, and/or leaving a link to a blog post or two or three. You are what makes this party a party.

I realized by the middle of last week that one of the things that has helped me the most in keeping track of all these days lately is the various parties I link up with each day.  If not for the blogging community I'm not sure I'd know what day is which lately!

And Now, for This Week's Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop!

Join your Encouraging Hearts & Home Co-Hosts each week for encouragement and support for your heart & your home. We hope to provide a space that builds each other up and lends a helping hand along the way. With all the negativity in the world, let's shine a positive light!

The post with the most views from last week:

Some of my favorites from last week:

In the Still by A Spirit of Simplicity

Chocolate - Drizzled Strawberry Crepes by A Nest in the Rocks

  1. The link parties help me know what day it is and they help me stay connected to others. I can't see friends and family in person right now due to the stay-at-home orders, but parties help me still make some sort of connection with others. It's not the same, of course, but it still is nice!

    1. Yes, they definitely help with that sense of connection.

  2. I agree with Shannon, the link parties have helped us all stay in touch. Even though we are in blog land, we still have relationships.
    Thanks for continuing to host and thanks to everyone for continuing to share!
    Take care!

    1. Absolutely! I'm always talking (in real life) about my blogging friends.

  3. I am so grateful for the blogging world right now!

  4. Yes, I've noticed the same--there are so few landmarks in the week! I'm grateful to know it's Thursday because I'm HERE!

    1. Right?! I feel that that's my only landmark in the week anymore.

  5. Funny that you mention about Blog parties...I think Blog parties are the bright spot right now in many Blogger's lives including my own...They provide a great respite from what is going on in our world....I find this interesting because before all this happened, many Bloggers were questioning the future of Linky Parties...I think after all of this is said and done, Linky parties will be seen for what they used to be...A Gathering of great ideas from wonderful people from all over the World!!
    Thanks SO much for hosting one of these Gatherings!! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!

    1. I completely agree! I know so many bloggers were thinking of not hosting them anymore and I was so sad; I just love link parties and how they force me to continually stumble upon great "new" bloggers I hadn't known about before.

  6. Thanks so much for hosting! I’m linking up today with WHO ARE YOU BLOGGING FOR? PART 1 OF 5 and I invite you to check out my 2 current link parties, one is themed, the other is any topic.

  7. I love perusing all of these posts, I found some great recipes to pin! So glad you are hosting this!

    1. Thank you! I am so glad you stopped by to join us.

  8. I will definitely be checking out your brown sugar post. Thank you.
