Welcome back to #FoodieFriDIY! We like to think this is one of the best places to share your favorite recipes and DIY projects, as well as find new ones to try!
We now have a Group Board for our participants and we would love for you to join us! You are welcome to pin anything you share with us at the party, as well as up to 10 posts a day. They do need to be food or DIY related though (crafts, tutorials, and organizing is fine). The rules are listed on the board.
If you’d like to be added, please follow the board above, as well as all of the hosts of this party (see below). Then send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with Requesting Invite – Foodie Fridays and DIY Group Board in the subject line.
Michelle at A Dish of Daily Life
Christie at A Kitchen Hoor
Mila at Girl and the Kitchen
Petro at The Seaman Mom

Your hosts will now be pinning both their features and faves each week to a separate board. To see what we’re pinning, follow along!
We also now have a Facebook Community, which is growing. This is a place you can promote your recipes and projects, and we’re offering multiple boosting threads a week. If you are interested in joining us, please request an invite here: Foodie Fridays and DIY Boost Group
I’ll still be promoting you the same way I have been, by sharing on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, G+, Yummly, and StumbleUpon. If you stop by my Facebook page with one of your recipes or DIY projects that you linked up at the party, I will guarantee a share of that link on some form of social media. As of late, there haven’t been as many takers…I miss you guys! Please stop by with your recipes and projects!
My features and faves will get even more special attention with even more shout outs and shares to some of my favorite group boards as well!
Before I share my features, I want to talk about a valuable tool for food bloggers and everyday cooks. It’s called Yummly. If you share recipes on your blog, you should be using it, because it can be a valuable source of traffic to you, from a new audience that you may not reach otherwise.
For those of you who are just here to pick up recipes, it is a great place to find new recipe recommendations based on your taste preferences, diet restrictions and even what you have on hand in your pantry! You can create your own personalized collection of recipes, but overall it is very different from Pinterest, and I think you will find that it helps you immensely with your meal planning. And yes, it is FREE. If you click on the picture, it will take you to the post.
Okay, with that said, on to my features! I was all over the place this week.

If you’d like to pin an individual recipe, please visit the blog where it lives and pin it from there!
We’re not really a rules-type party. But here’s what we do ask.
1. Link up your favorite recipes and projects from your own blog. Roundups are fine as long as they include links to the recipes or DIY projects. Please DO NOT link a post without a recipe, project, craft, or tutorial.
2. We’d be truly grateful if you shared our party to other food and DIY blog friends so others can join in the fun! Tweet us. Share us on Facebook. However you can help us spread the word, we appreciate!
3. It’s not a requirement of course, but if you can, try to visit another link or two and leave a thoughtful comment. Give someone a shout out on social media. Use the hashtag #FoodieFriDIY…we’re trying to grow a community for all of us, and it’s always nice to make new friends.
4. If you’d like to include a link back on the individual post you linked up, we’d love it, but again, there is no requirement to do so. We are working on a new button if you’d like to put that on your sidebar or link party page. Stay tuned.
And now for the party!
