March 2016 Top Posts & Best of the Blogs Linkup

It’s the last day of the month!  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 friends!

March has been wonderful month for life and the blog.  I’ve been able to get outside and enjoy some beautiful weather and embrace all things spring.  I can’t wait until after April 18th (tax day has an extension this year!) to be able to enjoy this lovely time of year even more with my hubby.

Blog wise it’s been the best months I’ve had since I started Running in a Skirt!  I’ve been able to work with some wonderful companies and I’m so grateful for each of you that read my little corner of the internet.  This blog brings me so joy.  Thank you again.

Today is also the 5th Best of the Blogs linkup!  If you are blogger, you can linkup either a Top Posts recap like I do OR one of your favorite or top viewed posts of the month. The idea is that we will have the best this blog community has to offer for each month in one place. If you are not a blogger, this will be a great resource for you to learn about new sites and view some incredible posts. It will be held on the last weekday of each month.

Mark your calender’s for the rest of the year now—>

Just a 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
