Follow Us Monday Morning 12/20 - Promote Your Blog and Meet New Friends

Welcome to Follow Us Monday Morning - the Monday blog hop and Google friend follow here at Being Frugal and Making it Work and Frugality Is Free. This is the place where we casually meet and greet, have a little conversation and expand our blogging networks.

PhotobucketI am honored to have been chosen to represent the 'Us' in Follow Us Monday Morning!  My co-host,  JR from Frugality Is Free are looking forward to meeting new friends.  I know that we have so much to share and so much to learn from one another.

Each week we will feature a blog as Hot Blog of the Week, and we will post a question to get the conversation started. The Hot Blog of the Week will get the first place in the linky, and the featured blogger will win a free ad space here at Frugality Is Free for a week.

The Hot Blog of The Week is:



The Crafty Crystal is written by Crystal, who is a recent college graduate. She loves all things crafty, and at the Crafty Crystal she shares all of her crafts, ideas, thoughts about life and more.

Crystal has been sharing lots of Christmas crafts on her blog, so if you need a little inspiration, it is a great place to stop by.

Congratulations Crystal! 

You have won a feature, a free ad space for a week at Frugality Is Free and the third spot in the linky.


Follow Us Morning Feature BONUS!!! As a new bonus, the Follow Us Morning Featured blogger will win a FREE ad space for a week at Frugality Is Free.
Tip: The best way to gain more followers during a blog hop is by following others first, and leaving a link back so that they can easily find you. So don't forget to let someone know, if you are following their blog. One way to do this is by commenting and leaving your clickable blog signature (see below).

To participate:

Answer the Follow Us Monday Morning question (in the comment area or in a post) and post the button in your post. This is not mandatory, but it sure is appreciated, as it will help spread the word.

Question of the Week

Question of the Week:  Do you have any holiday traditions that are very specific to you family or your family's culture/heritage?

My answer:   I started a family tradition after my first son was born, almost 10 years ago.  I buy my kiddos each a new pair of Christmas jammies to wear to bed on Christmas Eve.  That way, in Christmas morning photos they are cute and festive!

Hi there,

I'm totally new to blog-hopping, but love the idea! Thank you so much for hosting/organizing. It is a great way to meet and connect with new friends!

I can learn a lot from you---looking forward to finding new and creative ways to be frugal!
