Best of the Weekend and Features 02.13.16

Hey, everyone! Happy Friday and welcome to the Best of the Weekend Link Party and features.

Before we get started I just wanted to share my post from earlier this week because I’m pretty fed up with pop ups and it seems like lots of you are as well. I maybe went on a little rant about them.

Why pop ups are driving your readers away.

I’m not doing this to blatantly self promoting (really!) but to take a minute to talk about blogging and what makes a good feature for me. Although I don’t comment on or share all of the links shared at our party, I try to visit each and every one that gets shared here. While this is a no rules party and you’re absolutely free to design your site any way you like, personally, if I’m popping by to read your post and I find those kind of pop ups, I’m not going to chase you and I’m definitely not going to feature your post. I don’t want to have click to close all the pop ups to see what I came for and I think most readers are really fed up with the ads and pop ups when we’re interested in your content. #justsaying

On to the features and our party.

I hope everyone had a great week and is ready to party with us. This party is hosted by five great blogs which means lots of exposure for you and a chance to be featured by each of us! We’d love it if you would follow us in some way!

  1. I SO agree with you about the pop ups! I despise those things, and will usually just turn around and leave a site if they have them. They say it increases readership and subscriptions, but I don’t see how when so many people dislike them.

    Thanks for hosting the party Jenna, hope you have a great weekend.
