June 2016 Top Posts & Best of Blogs Linkup

 It’s time for another monthly wrap up and the Best of the Blogs Linkup!

Best of the Blogs Linkup- Linkup your top post of the month or a wrap up of your top posts! The last weekday of every month on Running in a Skirt.
Hi everyone!

Thanks for your kind words on Monday’s post.  It always feels good to write so candidly.  I feel like its something I need to do more often.

I’ve had a really good month both professionally and personally.  It’s been busy, but I’ve felt many times like I am doing what I am supposed to be doing and where I need to be.  I’ve felt very balanced with work and home life, which is really nice for a change.

Blog wise, it’s been another solid month… especially for summer.  I’ve made some tweaks to my Pinterest images and they seem to be doing well.  I’m going back to some of my older, more popular pins and remaking them in that style and it seems to be working as well.  Did you also notice I started re-shooting some of my older recipes?  You’ll see a little more of that in coming months while

I update some of my dated images.

My Fresh Strawberry Salsa recipe was featured on a Yummly e-mail roundup which sent wonderful traffic my way for a few days.  I don’t even do Yummly, so I don’t know how that happened but it was kind of awesome.  Mental note: sign up for Yummly.

Remember the Best of Blogs linkup is on the LAST weekday of each month.  Don’t forget to mark calendars for the Best of Blogs linkup for the rest of the year—>

  • Friday, July 29th
  • Wednesday, August 31st
  • Thursday, September 30th
  • Monday, October 31st
  • Wednesday, November 30th
  • Friday, December 30th

And not to freak you out or anything, but that’s only 6 left for the year!  We are officially half way through 2016.

Just a friendly reminder—> Make sure to not only drop your link, but check out the other fabulous posts other bloggers leave. We had an amazing roundup of posts last month and I enjoyed reading all of them! Let’s make this an active community event! Please share with the hashtag #BestofBlogs

The linkup is at the bottom of the post, so keep on scrollin’!
