    I came across this post on Pinterest and have a question. Isn’t it proper linky party etiquette to visit/comment on at least a few other links of other bloggers that are participating? How can you possibly do that with over 50 linky parties a week??? It’s driving traffic to your blog, but, are you helping drive traffic to other blogs that are linked up?
    Just curious..that many parties seems a bit much.

      Barb- commenting is good etiquette. This list of linky parties are not all for one day. This list is for an entire 7 day week. So, for one day I am linking up to 5-7 or so linky parties. But there are enough linky parties out there that if you wanted to link up to 20 a day you could. That is more than I can handle.

      I do visit and comment on other links at each party. I love finding new ideas and meeting new bloggers.

      This works for me and I only encourage others to do what works for them and what is manageable, but linky parties are a great way to grow period. And leaving comments and visiting other posts while at a linky party only adds to that momentum.

      Hope that helps.
