Last month, I spoke about how blog posts become my lowest priority once life or writing kick into high gear, and invited you to add a few of your posts I’d missed. Loved all the posts in the comments, and felt glad to be given a second chance at visiting them.
I keep missing good blog posts, because I often can’t find time for more than one weekly visit to all the blogs I follow. When I do visit, I sometimes hop away after a quick ‘Like’ , meaning to come back and write a comment, but don’t always manage.
I’m writing a fair bit these days, so of course, August has been a sort of lean month, blog-visits-wise.
In short, I thought I’d add a Linky list, open for a week, till the 7th of September, and invite you all to add your old posts from August that I haven’t commented on. I’ll delete spam and keep the list tidy, so if you want to browse through the list and visit other blogs and make friends, you’re most welcome. The link will remain up, till further notice.
In the linky, please do the following:
- Link to the Blog Post you want read, and not to your blog. I’ll delete links that lead to home pages and websites.
- In the Blog Title part of the Link form, add your Blog Post Title. If your post title is intriguing, others might want to click through as well.
Do NOT do the following:
- Do not add spam links.
- Do not add homepage links to Websites/ Blogs.
- Do not add more than one post.
- Do not ask me to edit/ make changes to the list. (I edit typos without being prompted, don’t worry).
I hope to cover a few posts I’ve missed in this way, and maybe make new friends! I’ll visit everyone on the linky list in the coming week or two. I invite all of you to visit each other– I do have some awesome blog-friends, and you might like to meet them.
So, which of your blog posts deserves the most visits? Have you added a blog post to the linky list above? In case I’m not your regular follower, why did you choose this particular blog post to introduce me to your blog? Have you checked out the pages on blogging and writing advice on this site?

Here’s a poem that I recently published on my blog: http://shaloowalia.com/satyakama-jabala/
Hi Damyanti, I’m very new to the blogging world so I want to thank you for this post and the ones that are linked to this one. Your posts are warm and inclusive. I am excited to read and follow more bloggers as I continue my blogging journey.
That’s a good idea for when you’re time crunched.
What a wonderful idea .Happy to participate Damyanti .Looking forward to visiting again.
I hear you girl. Am I the only one who spends 3 hours each night reading blogs? Lol. I know you usually drop by when you can, but in case you missed, I posted a guest post with the Kindlepreneur last week, Dave Chesson. If you’re not familiar with him, his site is a wealth of info for Indies. <3
How super kind of you to do this Damyanti! I run out of time and often mean to go back and read posts that I missed but end up continuing forward instead. I added a post to your linky list.
I love your idea and maybe I will too find some interesting posts here.
I know how you feel. There are so many helpful and encouraging blogs out there on friend lists, but I have such limited time and can only get there infrequently much to my sorrow. 🙂
This is so sweet Damyanti, will link up my post soon 🙂
My dear Damyanti, that is so sweet of you. I think that is the same problem a lot of us are experiencing. With so many wonderful bloggers posting more often, it’s a monumental task to keep up. I am guilty of not getting around to everyone each week. I dislike that I can’t spend more time reading blogs, but I wouldn’t get anything else done.
This is really very sweet of you, Damyanti!
And, I so loved the image you have used for this post! 🙂 Ever the dog lover! <3
Such a good idea!! Kudos.
You are so sweet! I love reading your posts and I know it’s been long I stopped by. Thanks for the space, Damyanti. ❤️
Thanks, please add your link as well, so we can all read it.
Very cool of you to put this together, Damyanti. I love discovering new blogs, and I recently decided to jump into the blogging world myself. Can’t wait to read through these!
You’re welcome, Ariane. To me, blogging is all about community.
I also struggle to read about 10 other blog posts each week but so appreciate those who visit my blogs and follow along as I report on writing progress. The post I shared is about visiting the Vietnam Traveling Memorial on a calm, summer day. Thank you for giving readers this opportunity to share once again those posts that meant something a little special.
Thanks, Beth. I just want to catch up on any good posts that I’m certain I’ve missed.
I love to read many blogs about parenting, books, travel and short fiction but i can read atmost 10 per week due to work. Nice initiative Damayanti.
As long as you’re reading some, it is great. If I had a day job, I don’t think I’d be blogging at all– so kudos to you! Pls add one of your posts to the linky list 🙂
Don’t ever feel guilty for not being able to read everyone you follow. There is just too much good stuff to read to be able to read it all. I am so grateful for anyone that reads even one of my posts. And if you like it enough to follow what I write, you don’t even know how much I appreciate you. But that does not make it your responsibility to read any other thing I write. It is my responsibility to write things that draw you back.
Yes, there’s too much to read, but I do try my utmost to fit in as much as I can. And Richard, you’re very kind to absolve me of my guilt. Please add one of your posts to the linky list so we can all read you.
Thank you Damyanti, for the generous offer. Hope you’ve had a productive August. Look forward to visiting some new blogs.
Thanks, Cath, yes I did, writing-wise. Thanks for adding your link!
Thanks Damyanti … I’m not sure I did it right … but it goes straight to the post … some senior moments … enjoy – cheers Hilary
PS A great way to get to look at other blogs and posts …
You did it absolutely right, Hilary, and I shall begin siting and commenting on the posts tomorrow 🙂
