Saturday Link List - Linky Parties

Are you looking for some link parties to attend?

Two weeks ago I talked about AlphabeThursday, my favorite weekly link party.  You will not add a photo with this Linky Tools, just post titles and/or names, but there's always a nice message from our teacher, Miss Jenny, and a letter from the alphabet to write about.  And you'll receive lots of visits from other bloggers.  The only rule: you have to be willing to visit at least 10 other "students" on the list.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday is a photography link party.  There are three rules: take five new photos following the themes given every week, link up at the site Sunday - Tuesday, and leave at least five comments around yours on the list.  Easy and fun, especially for those who love photography!

Create with Joy has three different blog hops going on during the week: Inspire Me Monday is “A place to share your creative inspirations, Sharpen your creative vision and Showcase your creative talents!”  On Wednesday, there is a Wordless Wednesday (photo of the week) and Friday you can share your thoughts with friends at Friendship Friday.  I like the idea of Inspire Me Monday; and I usually write about some artistic project I’m working on at the beginning of the week, so it's a great fit for me! 

No Ordinary Blog Hop is just that!  It is a month-long post with 8 wide-ranging categories and one "category of the month" to choose to write about.  You have to submit at least one post during the month, but can add as many additional links as you’d like.  It's expected that you visit the 11 hosts each month listed at the top of the host's post, and they will follow  you back!  And you need to add the NOBH button to your sidebar or in your post.  At the end of each month everyone votes for the Star Blogger Award.  Nice twist! 

There are actually quite a few crafting link parties out there - they’re not hard to find.  There are large photos in the lists (including food!), perfect if you have good photos of your projects.  And it's also a nice place to find some new craft ideas.  Two parties that I saw which I liked were Craft-O-Maniac's Monday Link Party and The Creative Spark Link Party at Clean & Scentsible.  

Just in case you make your own handmade products, think about marketing your items twice a month by joining the Shop Hop that's going on at Pixel Berry Pie Designs.   Etsy, Artfire, eBay, Zibbet and The Craft Star shop products are welcome!  One artist also get showcased on the blog - it might be you!

Do you have a favorite linky party?  Tell us about it and the url in the comments!

This is a great list! I participate in 2 link parties each week and choose a few random ones now and then to mix it up :)

Another awesome idea for a link list! You know that I love the Scavenger Hunt and I Heart Macro. I've also been doing the monthly photo challenge from Fat Mum Slim the past couple months.
