Grow Your Blog Link Up #01!

Welcome to the very first Grow Your Blog Link Up!

It's a link up specifically for new bloggers (those with less than 500 followers per social medium are welcome too). It's a chance to meet other new bloggers, and hopefully build networks and friendships.

There are no fees for co-hosting. Just email me at if you're interested.

Link ups start every Wednesday at 3pm NZDT (that's Tuesday 6pm PST and Wednesday 1pm AEDT if that helps).

Each week, one participant will be randomly selected, and gets featured on the following week's blog hop. More free exposure!

There'll also be a giveaway from time to time, so make sure to check back each week.
1. You don't have to, but I'd appreciate it if you could follow One Chocolate Box.

2. Follow the co-hosts! Let them know you're following from the Link Up, so they can follow you back.

3. Link up in the appropriate section using your blog URL or profile URL. Remember you can only link up in the section if you have less than 500 followers in it.

4. Visit and follow at least 1 other blogger. Let them know what you like about their blog.

5. Return the love, follow your new followers!

6. It would be super if you shared the Link Up via Facebook or Twitter. The more people join up, the more potential followers you can get.

7. I'd love you forever if you grabbed the button below and place it on your sidebar!

A big welcome to my lovely co-hosts this week:

Kate at Odd One Out
Jennifer at Magic Cat Jenny
Chynna at The Invisible Child
Bri at Deliciously Active

Thanks so much for co-hosting ladies!


  1. Thanks for hosting this! :) I've always wanted to do some sort of link up.. I just don't know what quite yet.

  2. Thank you :D I wanted to give new bloggers a chance to co-host and get new followers, without paying for the chance to do so. At least they'll get an intro to it if they do decide to ever co-host one. And it opens me up to a whole new host of bloggers :)

    I actually just got my post for this week's ready....and I think your time is actually going to be 3am Thursday for me lol. Guess I'm way ahead. I have my blog set for EST since most people I know are there, so I think it'll still be Wednesday for them lol. Anyhow I'll be there, but if I end up falling asleep my link will just be way behind my actual post.
