Question for You

A while back I tried to start a Friday linky party called Food Faves and Finds. The whole idea came to me from my Weight Watcher days when we would have food "show and tell" and people would bring their favorite new or old discoveries to the meeting to share. Some would talk about recipes, etc. It was one of my favorite things we did at meetings and I thought perhaps the Food Faves and Finds meme would be like a virtual food show and tell.

Well, not very many people have been linking up and I suspect it is due to one of two reasons:

1. Friday is a bad day to have a linky party--seems like the blogging world is dead on Fridays
or
2. This is not a good idea.

So I thought I'd ask you what you think. I certainly have more readers now than I did when I tried to start this. Are any of you new folks interested? Would a different day of the week improve participation?

I even made a cute little button for it and everything. See:



I also thought about just making it a page on my blog and if I saw posts that I wanted to add to the list I would and if you had one you wanted me to add I could do that also, you would just have to comment or email to let me know.

Talk to me!

P.S. Thanks to the couple of you who have faithfully posted your faves on Friday's...even when I didn't. Ha!

I like this idea! I'm relatively new to following your blog so I didn't know about this previously :) Friday's do tend to be a little quieter so maybe Mondays?

Nicole said...

I just became a follower and I love this idea!!

Taylor said...

I would link but I don't have a blog anymore@ I think it is a great idea though.

Trisha said...

I am new also but I love the idea! I would so participate!

Nancy said...

I love this, I did it once, but since then haven't really been blogging much.

i think this is a good idea, Keelie. i was just thinking last night that i want to start posting a new recipe to my blog once a week. i've been experimenting a lot these last few days and getting together the nutritional info, and i love it!

i don't necessarily think friday would be a bad day to do this, but you might be onto something about a friday blog slump. i was thinking wednesday or thursday for my recipe day, but i'd be glad to integrate that into your blog. you've got a bigger audience. or i could link up with a button? just whatev. ;)

I would love to see this! I might not always be able to post with this, but I would love to see everyone's recommendations and suggestions. Do it!

I didn't know it was on your blog till today, so maybe a separate page for it. Day of the week doesn't matter to me, I love a good recipe (or snack idea).

Kate said...

I already have a Friday feature. Happy Feet Fridays. Ha! Although it never occurred to me to ask people to participate. Ha!

I thought it was a great idea but law school has kept me going (hence my once a week posts on my blog). However, i should have more time this summer and was planning on trying to add my faves then :)

Sylvia said...

I would participate!! :)

Tania said...

I think it's a great idea, but I would say a different day would be better. Like Wednesdays maybe?

Love it! My Lean Cuisine find of the week: the chicken club sandwich. Pair it with some baked Lay's and DELICIOSO! I could even taste some bacon. :-)

Reese said...

I am new. I love the idea! I am not sure i know how to do a link yet! I'll give it a try though :)

Nicole @ Let Them Eat Lettuce said...

Sounds good to me! I think a separate page would be helpful too!

linds said...

Im in! And I don't care what day you decide. Ive been reading the Friday posts completely unaware it was a participation activity! I was just getting into your great finds!

misssarahlou said...

Sounds like a great idea!

cmoursler said...

I probably wouldn't post, but I would read...sounds like a neat idea to me.
Good luck with it.

I love this idea. But having just moved and still settling into a routine, it might take me a week or two to get in the swing of things.

Hey girl! I loved doing Food Faves... I participated a few times and liked reading what others had to say. I love hearing others favorites - it really helps me along! The only thing was for me, if I'm being totally honest, the readers of my blog really weren't that interested in reading what I had to say. Haha, how funny is that?? I think my readers are looking for my decor/organizing/crafts and loosing weight or healthy food tips and such just aren't their thing. So becuase it's my blog I'd still like to participate - but I may not do so every week. I'll still be reading everyone's posts and commenting though! Like I said, I really do like this linky party.
