Wow – I feel like I say this ALL the time, but what a whirlwind of a week!! I have some news for you weekly party-goers this week – this will be the last Happy Hour Friday link party. I’ve really enjoyed having you come by for the past 2+ years to party with me, but it’s time for me to retire the linky.
Blogging is changing and the way people feel about crafts and DIY is changing – for the better! But now that Craftgawker, Etsy, and Pinterest are so huge (can you believe there was NO such thing as PINTEREST when I first started hosting Happy Hour Friday??) and people have so many more sources for creative inspiration, I just don’t feel that link parties provide the same exposure. I am seeing week after week that click-throughs are declining (that also means more and more people are just linking and running!) so I think it’s about time to close the party down.
That said – I’m still here! I’ll be here, continuing to blog and connect. If you are here to “meet” some new bloggers, I do run a group on Facebook for creative bloggers and you are welcome to join us!
I hope you enjoy this last, anything goes party. I’ve had a lot of fun having you here and I hope to still see you around!!
