Welcome to the Classic Movie Marathon Link Party #9. I'm going to be co-hosting with Elaine Hodges from Classic Movie Treasures and Steve Bailey from Movie Movie Blog Blog for the next two weeks. Feel free to jump in and add your links about anything and everything classic-movie related.
Welcome to The Classic Movie Marathon Link Party #9! We have a new guest host for the next four weeks, Steve Bailey from Movie Movie Blog Blog. Please welcome him and follow him on social media by clicking the links below.
As some of you know, Elaine have been blogging for about seven years in a different niche and just started blogging about classic movies. Link Parties are very popular in the food and lifestyle niches just like blogathons are popular in the movie niche. From what she understand, this link party is the only one going on in the movie niche so a lot of movie bloggers aren't even aware of what a link party is, so we are going to leave the description below as part of the post for all the "new to link parties" bloggers.
If you aren’t familiar with link parties (sometimes called blog hops), they are an opportunity for bloggers to share your work on other websites, as well as find new inspiration as you discover other bloggers who link up! When you visit a site on the day of their weekly link party, you’ll see a button inviting you to “add your link” – – and you’ll share your post URL, a title for the post, and crop a photo from the post, which will create a hyperlinked thumbnail that others can click on and read it on your site.
When you visit a site that is hosting a link party that day, it’s important to read the “rules” of that host as some require you to follow their blog, post their button on your site, commenting on the two links before you, etc. We have discovered some great blogs through link parties, so we recommend visiting other bloggers and showing them some comment love. It is a party, after all! Also, many hosts will feature their favorite posts at the following week’s link party, so be sure to check back.
Please let your classic movie blogger friends about this link party. It is a great free way to get exposure for your blog.
Interested in being a guest host for the month or becoming a permanent co-host? It's really easy to do.
Complete the form here! Monthly guest hosts will be chosen on a first come first-serve basis
If you are not a blogger and just a classic movie lover like us, you will discover the vast array of classic movie bloggers around the world. We have contributors from Finland, Brazil, India and the UK!
