Cherry Link Love: Getting to Know YOU!


Here we are, day one of what will hopefully be a very successful series for everyone. I mentioned in my most recent Monday's Moments that this little old blog has been consistently reaching and topping 45,000 views per month for the past few months and as a way to celebrate, to say thank you to everyone that drops by and to share some of the phenomenal stat love I'm launching this series today. 

The workings are very simple, I'll come up with a title Nails, Haircare etc and you link your favourite post that fits the bill. I will then backlink each post in the body of the post for that week. Easy, right? 

Hopefully we'll see a showcase of some of the best posts out there from new and older blogs and we'll all find not only great hints and tips but also some fab new people to follow. 

This week, as it's our first I thought we'd start with a 'Getting to Know You' link list. So whether it be a link directly to your 'About Me' section or to a post that you feel will tell us the most about you then get linking below. 

I'll start the proceedings with the post that I think says the most about me as a person  A Letter to 19 Year Old Me, it's heartfelt and personal and hopefully gives us a little insight into what makes me tick (as opposed to thick, natch).

I'll stop waffling now, get linking in the comments, lovelies, be sure to include the user name you use to follow me so I can upload backlinks, of course if you don't blog personally you can link a favourite blogger (with their permission of course). I will update this post on Monday, continue to promote it for the week and create a permanent button in the sidebar so we should all share in the stat love. 

Happy Saturday, everyone! 

Here we are: 19 lovely links so far, let's start getting to know each other and sharing the love shall we?  

If you're a CherrySue follower and haven't added yours yet please feel free to do so in the comments any time. Today alone, 17th April 2013 this post has gotten almost 3,5000 views - amazing stuff!

Great idea and very kind. You're definitely an inspiration.

I'm Eleanorjane at http://birdybegins.wordpress.com/ and my current post is about what my 17 year old self would think of me now.

I'm a brand new blogger, just finding my way, but I think it'll be about travel, style, beauty and misc. other bits I've called 'things that make you go hmm...'.

Such a fantastic idea. Reading all the letter to my xyz self and loving them so, so much. My username is Clodagh and here is my link. As I am fairly new to blogging, it's an introduction to me and my blog. As I wasscrolling through my blog to find a suitable post I realized I write a lot of posts which tell alot about me, so you can snoop through them if you wish
Hope you like it x

So generous! And congrats on da stats, sistuh!

I blog about gorgeous-making stuff at brightandbeautyfull.com and think, in a wacky way, this post just about sums up my approach to fashion and beauty:

I do be serious sometimes, but not all the times.

Hi Cherry Sue :-) I've been reading - and loving - your blog for some time now. Congrats on your readership stats! I am kinda private but every so often leak out a little bit about myself in a post. This one (http://blog.makeupfordolls.com/2012/10/friends-romans-countrymen.html) was one which tells a little about what I was doing at a partic point in time of my life, it reveals a little bit about me, but it also shouts out to some others (friends, relations, you name it) who are doing blog or "not-then-norm"-related activities also... Cheers... Siobhán

Hi Sue,

What a great idea! Thanks for giving us all the chance to share in what you've achieved. I think the post on my blog that says a lot about me (and the one I felt most vulnerable about) is the first one I did for the #ThinThursday series. It's http://girlfridaysbeautyblog.wordpress.com/2013/01/10/welcome-2013-and-thinthursday/ I actually felt ill after I hit publish but the support I have gotten from the readers and fellow blogging beauties has helped me to keep going!

Sue, this is a fantastic idea, thanks! Congrats on your success, I remember reading the very first posts you made.

I'm late to the party, I'm sorry! My laptop is broken, I have to knick my boyfriend's when he's not around! I don't actually have an about me page, which I might do know that I've thought of it. I will link to the reason why I picked 'rare opal' as a blog name, it was my second post http://rare-opal.blogspot.ie/2010/07/whats-with-name.html

Looking forward to looking through all the blogs posted above! xx

I love this idea! I just realised that I don't really have a post that has a lot of info about myself so I will definitely sort that out my my latest post about me moving home is a way of getting to know me I guess!
