Do you recognize that cute little blue face? It's the well known symbol of one of the most popular link party tools in blogland. Chances are, you have used it at least once (if not many times) when you linked up a blog post to one of the many linky parties occurring in blogland. I know I have.
I want to share my experience with inLinkz....as a link party guest and host.
I have used inLinkz many times in the past year as I shared my craft and DIY projects with some of my favorite blog's link parties. I always found it easy to use....especially when it came to adding a thumbnail picture to my entry. It was simple and fast. That helps when you are a new blogger that links up to numerous link parties.
Several months ago, I teamed up with four other bloggers to host a weekly link party called the All Star Block Party. It's a weekly craft/diy/food link party that has grown to over 100 link ups. I usually manage the link tool for the group and I recently started using the inLinkz tools. My "job" of moderating the link ups for the party has become much easier....and less time consuming! For a link party host, those two aspects are invaluable.
I also want to share my experience as a co-manager of the LinkyHere website. LinkyHere is the wonderful creation of Aimee of byAimee.com. In the most basic sense, it is a link party tool directory designed to help bloggers find a linky party to share their latest creation or blog post. It is extremely organized. Parties are categorized by the day of the week that they occur and by type of submissions....diy, food, sewing, etc.
When I started this new venture last month, Aimee told me about the directory. "There a quite a few link categories to manage", she said. When I logged on the site to find out what she meant, I was surprised to see over 15 pages of link categories! My first thought...."what have I gotten myself into?"
Instead of running away, I decided to jump right in and see if I could do what I had already agreed to. I was nervous and apprehensive. How was I ever going to do this? Surprisingly, it was super EASY! LinkyHere uses the inLinkz tool for all of their link categories. Moderating links and updating link party information was simple. Things like changing or editing a thumbnail picture can be done quickly and easily.
InLinkz supports the LinkyHere website in so many ways. Their support team is incredible....always available to answer any question or offer advice. They are continually releasing new tools and helpful video tutorials to help even the most inexperienced, "newbie" blogger.
