The Best Resource for Current Teacher Linky Parties

Have you had the pleasure of joining a linky party? During a linky party, the author of a blog (the host) invites readers to link up with their own blog posts on the same topic. I am a big fan! I feel connected to other educators, gather great resources, and have fun putting them together. Both you and the host benefit from increased blog traffic. They are great for new bloggers as they develop topics and goals for their blogs. I highly recommend trying them out.

Here are 10 tips to a prosperous link-up:
  1. Always check the rules.
  2. Pay attention to what is allowed in the post.
  3. Check the start time.
  4. Link back to the host in your post.
  5. Include the images provided by the host.
  6. Link your post - not your main page.
  7. Comment on other posts in the link-up.
  8. Follow the host on social media.
  9. Thank the host.
  10. Share the party on social media.
I put together a list of current link ups for teachers. If you host a link up, leave a comment below!
