I gave up hosting a monthly link party because it was a lot of effort and I needed to prioritize my time.
I am a firm believer that a blogger should wait until they have a decent readership before hosting a link party. Otherwise, you might be disappointed when only a couple of bloggers link up.
And, let’s face it, there are tons of great link parties already out there.
Well, since the last link party, my readership increased and I did want to give this linky another try. I just love seeing word and quote projects (and spotlighting other bloggers!) and I really wanted to host another Weekend Word Search Link Party.
In fact, I had planned to have it today. (Why there is no feature project today)
But the cost to host a link party is no longer free. (if I want to use thumbnail images… which I do)
Granted, the linky services are not that much money, but I am a hobby blogger… A hobby blogger who blogs for no compensation.
So, I have a hard time justifying the cost for an every few months link party. Especially since I am not sure that the party will be well attended.
So, I will not be hosting another WWS link party.
I really hope you understand my decision.
I am upset to see this niche idea for a party go.
If anyone is interested in taking this party idea to host on their blog, please email me!
I’d love to see this party continue.
