Every weekend you’re privy to to my favorite posts of the week. It’s a hodgepodge mix of things that make me grin, simplify life, or make your palette sing.
This week is all about three sites to optimize blog growth!
Who’d turn down the opportunity to see those blog stats climb? I’ve been following a couple of these savvy ladies for more than a year. If you put their tips and techniques into practice you’ll quickly become a blogging rock star!
If you’re up for a few good reads, pour yourself a tall breakfast smoothie, waltz around, & check them out.

These look like excellent resources! I’m always on the quest for more info. Thanks so much for sharing these!
Happy weekend to you!
I love learning more about growing my site! It’s so much fun to find new sources of helpful info and I almost feel guilty not sharing those gems with my readers. Share the love, right, so we can all improve our blogs! Thanks for stopping by, Tahnie.
I’m still so new to your blog girl, but what a great and helpful series! I’m loving these links 🙂
Hi Heather! So glad you stopped by to check out the 3 sites. I’m sure that even a seasoned blogger like yourself can find many a new trick and tip from these ladies. Thank you so much for visiting this weekend.

I’m stopping by from the Monday Funday linky party!
I absolutely love Amy Lynn Andrews (Blogging with Amy) and all of her fabulous information!
I can’t wait to check out these Bonnie and Melissa’s sites. Thanks for the tips!
Yep, Amy’s a winner! If you don’t subscribe to her “useletter” weekly emails, you definitely should. She shares all kinds of helpful blogging links & more every weekend. I’d have never guessed I’d actually look forward to receiving a blog newsletter, but this one’s pure gold. Thanks so much for visiting, Tshanina!
Alexis @ Persia Lou says
Thanks for sharing! Time to go read up! 🙂
Make sure to take notes or execute the great tips you find about blogging shortly after you read them. If you’re anything like me, you’ll overload your brain with great ideas only to forget them before you implement them 🙂 Have a great time growing your blog, Alexis!
Thanks for sharing! I will be checking them out. 🙂
Be sure you’ve got lots of time on your hands before visiting these ladies. They’ve got so much good info to share that you’ll be reading, reading, reading for hours!
Bonnie a.k.a. LadyBlogger says
Great post! I pinned it to my “e learning” Pinterest board!
Wonderful, Bonnie! As technology continues to evolve, we’ve got to keep up the learning and instruction to stay at the top of our game, right? Sometimes I think I could spend an entire week doing nothing but blog research to improve my site. Thank you for visiting this week. See you soon.
Im new to your site, but like your post !
I love bloggingwithamy she is so good .
Thanksfor sharing the others, Im checking them out now!
Yasmina, if you’re an Amy fan, you’ll love these other two ladies. I could spend all week browsing their posts and improving my site with their helpful tutorials and advice. Here’s hoping time is on your side. Thank you for stopping by today!
Great post here with lots of helpful info! Just wanted you to know that you’re being featured at the Pin It Link Party on mysnippetsofinspiration.com Have a great day!
Woohoo! Thank you so much for choosing my work, Danielle! You made my night. Hope your weekend is wonderful too!
So helpful!! I’m hopping over to check out some of these right now.
Carrie This Home says
I completely agree with recommending Amy from BloggingWithAmy.com. My entire blog was started using her tutorials. I love her helpful “use letters”. These are great tips! Glad I stopped by from Link Party Palooza!
Carrie, I also set up my WordPress site using tons of Amy’s tutorials and even a video or two. She’s got a fabulous bank of knowledge on her site, as do the other two ladies. Thank you so much for visiting this weekend!
Great post. I’m very new to blogging and more than bit overwhelmed by all the different places and way you get your blog more attention. This post is very informative!
Teri, if you check out these 3 ladies and really dig into their archives, you’ll be well on your way to blogging success. I really mean it! Bonnie puts out content almost daily, while Mel and Amy have years of archives built up. The fun and frustrating thing about blogging is that once you learn to master something, especially the techie things, everything updates and new strategies are formed, meaning it’s a continuous learning process. Hope you learn bunches! Thank you so much for stopping by this week. See you around again soon.
Thanks for the tips! I am always looking for new ways to grow my blog. I am going slowly and steadily, but I love resources for when I can really invest the time I want to jump start things! Coming by from SITS! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
I feel the same way. It seems like bloggers have a 6th sense for finding blogging resources. I sniff them out at linky parties and read until my eyes get googly 🙂 Hope you find lots of new info with these women. I know I did! Thank you for visiting today, Katie! See you around soon.
Stopping by from SITS GIRLS, thanks for the tips!!
You bet! These ladies’ blogs are my current go-tos for blog tips and strategies to improve my online presence. So happy to meet you today, Rosie!
Andrea @ Cloud Nine Chic says
Thanks so much for sharing these awesome sites with your readers! I’ve been following Melissa @ MomComm and Bonnie @ Hobby to Hot for a while now, but not Amy @ Blogging with Amy. I just signed up for her “useletter”, so I’m looking forward to some great info to come… So glad I found you through SITS Sharefest! Have a great weekend! 😀
I’ve heard of two of these, but not the second one! I’m going to check that one out. I’m always looking for blogging tips and tricks!
Thanks for sharing, I’m always looking for tips 🙂

I just went into Amy’s blog an it’s so funny because she’s talking about the Elegant Themes package and I just bought that package last week. I’ve redone my blog and totally, totally love it. What I need to do is stop looking at it so it doesn’t affect my numbers LOL. Stopping in from SITS saturday.
Thanks for sharing these sites. I’ve already discovered Bonnie & Melissa (great ladies, great advice!) but Amy is new to me. I’ll definitely check her site out. Visiting from SITS. Have a great weekend.
You’re in store for a treat at Amy’s site, Debra! Make sure you visit with plenty of time to spare because her site is loaded with great reads. Thank you for stopping by.
