Grow Your Blog Link Up #05!

Hello my lovelies! This week's link up will be the last for 2013! I'm still accepting submissions if you'd like to co-host for next year. The GYB link up will be back on January 8, 2014! - Toni

Welcome to the 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 also 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:

Olivia at Cookies n' Purl
Mary at The Clarity Chase

Thanks so much for co-hosting ladies!

This week's feature is Traci J at Bows for Justine!

I'm totally loving here top ten Christmas tunes. You can check them out here!

And without further ado... link up, link up!


  1. Thank you so much for featuring my blog! I just started it up a couple of weeks ago and I am looking forward to becoming part of the blogging community.


  2. You're most welcome Traci! :)

  3. haha am i always the last one? also how do you know if you have over 500 followers on your blog. (first section)..

  4. Hopefully not! We got 20+ for the past few weeks, so fingers crossed.

    On the first section, I normally go with Google Friend Connect, but to be honest I'm not too fussed, since not everyone has GFC. It's up to the people to be honest if they put their link there. I could go hard out policing everyone that puts their link up, but that's just sad, and I don't have time to do it. So I'll leave it up to their conscience :)

  5. was just wondering... bc i don't think i have that many followers.. i get most my traffic from pinterest. i don't have gfc either. that's a totally separate thing from google+? how do you like it?
