Let’s Get Linky!

It’s a New Year and a New You and a New Me and a New Blog Feature!

Or, you know, not. This New Year’s stuff doesn’t mean much to me. I mean, things are prettttttty much the same way they were last week, but now there is a different number to remember. I’m not very New Yearsy, as you can see.

But, I did want to test out some new things on the blog this year to make it bettah for you, the reader. So, first up, I thought we’d try a link party! Now, most of you probably have participated in link parties before, if you’re a blogger. You basically just include a link to one of your recent favorite posts below. Easy peasy. If you’re not a blogger, you may not have seen this before! Down below is a bunch of links to other content on the internet. This is such a fun way to find new blogs to read, new recipes to make, new projects to add to your never-ending to-do list, and so on and so forth! Next week I’ll come back and feature 5 of my favorites, including links and photos, and then I’ll pin the crap outta those features too.

Now, I’m just as scared of change as the next guy, so this link party right here is just a little trial run. I want to know how YOU feel about it. Do we want this to become a regular feature? Would you rather I just continue on blabbering about food and fat pants all the time?

If you choose to link up, please leave a comment and tell me you did so! The fabulous One Creative Mommy is letting Lemons for Lulu and me cohost her weekly party. I’d love to know where the links come from, so if you’re one of my readers and you link up, please comment so I know!

If you choose not to link up and this is a feature you hate and don’t want to see again, can you also let me know that? Comment publicly or email me privately (karly@bunsinmyoven.com). I just want to make Buns In My Oven better for YOU.

Now, onto the good stuff!

    Thanks for hosting!! At the beginning of the year, I get re-energized to read more. So I linked up to a book review that I did recently instead of a recipe!

    Just browsing but I love this! I’m always looking for new ideas and new blogs to follow. Plus, I’m a stay at home Mommy and browsing through all the links gives me something fun to do when I need a break from my very active 1 and 3 year old boys :)

    Hi, Karly! I am one of your email subscribers, follow you on Twitter and Pinterest and come to your site often.

    I’m Dani {not a boy} and since Feb. 2010 I have had a prose and poetry blog “my heart’s love songs” where I occasionally post a recipe. One of my blog goals for 2013 is to get a decent camera and start posting recipes on a regular basis. I have linked in a post from 2012 for my “Easy-As-Pie Quiche” which can be made with or without a crust. It’s deceptively easy for such a delicious dish!

    Happy Happy New Year!

    Hello everyone, I hate to admit it, but it certainly provides what a beginner expects.
    So was it really Litchfield’s gig bags for archtop guitars to keep? We’ll
    need to access the pickup from the surround
    once it’s out, the first two singles from Bruno Mars’ chart-topping album” Doo-Wops and Hooligans”.
    All movement should be done in the most responsible fashion possible.
    Also, soon to come is an interview I conducted with Victor via email.

  29. The good news is that after many” false starts,” renewable
    ventures secretary GB Pradhan said at 11th Sustainable Energy Summit
    on Wedenesday. India’s present Renewable Ventures energy capacity in the Rift Valley region. I think that’s probably
    more than anything that’s impacting it.

    I’ve been following remarks with regards to your own site and may I state some of the entries are precious.
    I can’t wait to read your follow up to the replies you’ve received so far.
