I know I didn't even know what a linky party or "buttons" were when I first started blogging. I think it took me 3 months to figure this out (I can be pretty slow sometimes). When my brain finally caught up with the rest of the blogging world (okay, I'm not caught up but I'm not quite as far behind), I loved seeing all the creativity out there along with being able to share my ideas with a larger group.
Most of these parties request that you link back to them. Even if they don't require it, it's just good etiquette to do so. To see the parties that I have linked to look at the footer of my blog. I don't link up to all of them every week because I wouldn't have time to do anything else. This is also because I always find a minimum of 3 linked projects that I just HAVE to check out, pin, comment on.
I would like to give one party a specific shout out, though. It 's Tutorial Tuesdays from Newlyweds on a Budget. What I LOVE about this party is every link is to a tutorial! I get inspiration from seeing people's "end results" and then tackling how I will incorporate this type of project into my home. But, there are times when I like someone to walk me step by step through a project. That's what you will find at this link party.
So be sure to check out Kari's party along with all the other's. I think you will find so much inspiration you won't know where to start!
