It's all basically good manners, write a post on the Tuesday, link it up, visit the host (comment) and then visit other links to read and comment. It's also nice to mention in your post that you are linking up.
I have since discovered a few other awesome links. My favourites are Wordless Wednesday with My Little Drummer Boys and Twinkle in the eye and Flog your blog Friday with With some Grace. Make sure you read and follow their simple but important steps too.
Why I love these links are:
1. I have discovered so many wonderful blogs
2. I love the feeling of community
3. I love the gift of commenting on other blogs
4. AND I love the bump in my figures and comments
Thank you to these wonderful hosts for creating these great, little blogging communities.
PS: On Tuesdays, I link up with Jess from SAHM for IBOT
