Mingle Monday Blog Link-up!

Good morning, friends!
I hope you had a fantastic and very relaxing weekend. Around the Evans house, we watched a little too much Prison Break, took a lot of cozy naps, and snuggled our Beastie. It was heavenly.

I'm looking forward to a great week and to catching up on many of your blogs (I'm so behind on reading!). Thanks for dropping by to link up your blog - I really hop you pass along the word about Mingle Monday today.

Please go say hi to some new bloggers and I hope you get a lot of new, friendly visitors. Enjoy!



 ** Only 3 easy rules - that's all I ask! **

1) Link-up your blog below.

2) You must share a link to Mingle Monday on your post or the Mingle Monday photo.
3) Answer the weekly question in the comments section below and have FUN!
** Where would you like to see your blog go in the next year? **


Still proud to say that 100% of advertisement sponsorship proceeds go to my charity of choice, the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge. There are dozens and dozens of Hope Lodges across the country that give cancer patients a free place to stay while out of town for cancer treatment - such a cool place! 

With just $10, you can get a month long ad and know that it is going to help real cancer patients and their families. So please join me in my fundraising effort by becoming a sponsor HERE!


Happy Monday, party people!

  1. In the next year I would just like to continue blogging and growing my blog and hopefully inspire others! Thanks for the link up!

  2. I'd like a new design and just to meet more fun bloggers :)

  3. I have big dreams for my blog. I would love to grow my readership and eventually begin to make some money on the side. Of course, I know I have to be patient as I am only one month in to blogging again!

    Happy Monday...womp womp!!

  4. I'd love to continue meeting more bloggers + do more cooking posts :) xo jillian - stop by, im hosting a great giveaway on cornflake dreams

  5. I'm hoping to get a re-design and move over to a self-hosted Wordpress site, but I'm a little scared. Can't wait to see you Thursday!

  6. I would love to meet more people through my blog and hopefully use it as a way to inspire different ideas. I'm currently working through a way to reorganize/rework my blog, and that's kind of my goal for the next year or so. Now I just need to figure out how to do that :)

  7. I'm fairly new to blogging, so at this time I'm just trying to learn as much as I can. I would like a new design within the next year. I'd also like to connect with other bloggers that have the same interest.

  8. By this time next year I would love to be continuing with my same blog, still loving it and still making great friends through it. I'm considering doing more vlogging too. Thanks for the linkup!

  9. I'd like to grow my blog readership and partner with brands on some of my content.

  10. I would also love to grow my readership and continue meeting amazing bloggers :)

  11. I would love to expand my readers more and enjoy it even more! This is has been the best creative outlet for me the past couple of years and I just want to do more. :)

  12. In the next year, I hope to have quite a few more blogging friends! I've had such a great experience meeting new people in the blog world so far, so I'd like to keep that up!

  13. In the next year, I would love to gain more followers and just start to find my niche in blogging. I want to dig deeper into my creative side and really make my blog my own. I know it's hard to find your own voice in the big blog world, but I am surely up for the challenge!

  14. I would love to see more visitors, and have comments from those who do visit and not just be a ghost. We'll see what happens!

  15. I would like to make more blogging friends!

  16. I'd like to finally finish switching my site over to self-hosted Wordpress. I am SO CLOSE to the launch. These last few steps are killing me. I'd also like to invest in some sort of social media management program (probably CoSchedule) to make my blog fit into my lifestyle so that things will flow more naturally and blogging can be a stress-free hobby :)

  17. I'd love to figure out how to make a blog button (it's consuming so much of my time!) and just to keep mingling and meeting new bloggers!

  18. I missed out on Mingle Monday, maybe next time! BUT I saw you were watching Prison Break, absolutely LOVE that show!! I watched the entire series on Netflix. If I had the time I would watch it again. Just love Michael's eyes...ahh! What season are you on?

  19. I'd really like to see my newish blog gain a network of other bloggers. I'd also like to become more tech savvy with it. Thanks for hosting this up!
