#LinkLove and Cross-pollination!

On Facebook , I recently was introduced to the concept of #LinkLove. I think it is such a generous and wonderful idea. You can have a LinkLove section on your fan page, which lets people who become a fan of yours, post their links of their websites, blogs, fan pages, Twitter and Facebook on to your page. I always like to thank the people becoming a fan on my page and reciprocating on to their pages.

There is also the ♥ #LINKLOVE ♥ GROUP PAGE  and LINKLOVE SUCCESS  on Facebook where you can add your links and find more information on Lovin the Links! 

It automatically reminded me of the sweet bird, butterfly or bee who jumps from flower to flower cross-pollinating!

According to Wikipedia, "Cross-pollination, also called allogamy, occurs when pollen is delivered to a flower from a different plant. Plants adapted to outcross or cross-pollinate often have taller stamens than carpels or use other mechanisms to better ensure the spread of pollen to other plants' flowers."

How wonderful it is to be cross-pollinating other people's blogs and pages, increasing their fan base, a.k.a flowers and at the same time benefiting you!  When I see a post of someone that is nearing a milestone, let's say almost 500 fans, and she is at 498, it feels wonderful to be able to help that person bump up to the next level. 

I just started my fan page, so I have a way to go, but it feels so good to help others on their journey.  May we keep cross-pollinating the gardens of others and soon we too will have a garden full of precious blooms!


  1. Super delighted to reciprocate and am now following your blog! I will proceed to your fan page algo. Thank you for following!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog :) I am now following you back and will stop by your fan page as well.

    Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!

  3. Thank you both!! I can't wait to sit with a nice cup of tea and start reading your blogs! Have a blessed Monday~Lisa

But what we share,
For the gift
without the giver
Is bare.
