FYBF

Hello!

Welcome to the Flog Yo Blog Friday (FYBF) page!  What’s this all about ?

Every Friday morning, I open up FYBF for bloggers to link up their favourite post from the week.

In the tradition of a blog hop, FYBF is a great way for you to showcase your best/funniest/most riveting work for others to see and vice versa.

Below was the first FYBF post back in May, 2012.

To check out previous FYBF posts, click here.

To make sure you get updates and reminders for FYBF, follow me on Twitter, FaceBook or via RSS.

Oh, and finally…here are the rules to play:

 

1. Follow With Some Grace.

2. Sign up to the awesome Digital Parents community ( if you haven’t already done so). DP was created by Brenda Gaddi who happens to be the creator of FYBF. She’s also created 4 gorgeous kidlets. In case you’d like to know. Or maybe not. But we’ll share that info just the same.

3. Add your post URL to the linky.

4. Grab the funky FYBF button and post it on your sidebar. Help spread the blogfloggin love.

5. Visit the blogs of your fellow FYBF’ers and share the comment love.

6. Share some more comment love. It’s proven to make your wrinkles disappear…overnight. #truth

See you over at FYBF !!!

Ha! Thanks, Kirri! I used to have my hair passed my back. Cut it all off only 18 months ago. Thinking about growing it back…not for the buns though. Yeah, a big round of applause to my Props Manager :)

Thanks for linking up! It does take a bit of time to get your “blog out there” and noticed by others. Best way for that to happen and to generate some comments and traffic is to hop on over to the other posts. Give some comment love and get lots of it back :) x

Hi! My spouse Rachel and I are Americans and we started a blog about 7 months ago covering all things ichthyosis, a rare skin disorder that affects people worldwide. My friend from RadioCarly suggested that we join the club here because our topic affects people worldwide.

A lot of our material covers how rare diseases are perceived and covered in the media. We did a whole series of guest posts by people affected by harlequin ichthyosis, one of those shock photos that shows up all the time on sites like Reddit and 4Chan. Speaking of Reddit, on 15/4/13, we did an Ask Me Anything over there with another friend in Oz, Kyriaki. We also have a lot of parenting and dealing with non-typical children issues like navigating schools and people staring at them.

The link goes to our most recent post, but one that I really think affects all of us is the one we did on people that post “lemons cure cancer!” meme craziness on Facebook:

I’ve been reading several of your blogs already, and I’m looking forward to meeting more of you!
