Although I have been blogging since 2006, I have been a little late to the linky game. Last year I finally figured it out and started joining some of the wonderful bloghops (or blog carnivals) that have sprung up all over the internet. I generally find the most useful ones to be the ones that collect recipes or information around Real Food, healthy living and tips on saving money for home-makers. Other’s seem to agree and they really take off, forming hubs of communication and interaction that are very unique and niche-oriented. It is a great way to create community in the blogosphere as well as share links and promote your own website and information.
