Midlife Share the Love Party

A New Link Party Just for Midlife Lifestyle Bloggers

My blogging buddy Leanne Le Cras from Cresting the Hill is joining me to introduce a NEW LINK PARTY JUST FOR MIDLIFE LIFESTYLERS.

Our first link up will be next WEDNESDAY 31st January so mark it in your calendar.


I can hear you saying ‘not another link party!’.  However, this one is different. Why?  Well there are so many link parties out there that cater very well for:

  • Yummy Mummies
  • Crafts & DIY
  • Recipes
  • Fashion
  • Blogging tips
  • Blogging Grandmothers

I co-host several and am happy to be part of them, however, not too many cater for the specific niche that Leanne and I write about.  Promoting Midlife Lifestyle and experiences.  So we decided to start one of our own.


Leanne and I have both been blogging for three years or so and are avid participants of several link parties.  As I mentioned, I co-host Over the Moon, The Blogger’s Pit Stop and the Blogging Grandmothers Link Party.

However, with so many varied posts at these link ups many people just link and run.  We want to promote a smaller, EXCLUSIVE link party of like minded bloggers in our niche.  Who are prepared to share the love and genuinely want to read each other’s posts.

We want to promote and build relationships within a smaller group.  That is why we are limiting the numbers and the focus.


Next Wednesday 31st January at 6am AWST (here is a link to a time zone calculator so you can work out the time where you are) we’re launching our new EXCLUSIVE Blog Party –



midlife share the love party



We’re being very particular about why we are creating this Party. We want it to be about each other – not just about ourselves – so it needs to have a requirement for some commitment from those who attend.


We are EXCLUSIVE because:

  1. We’re only inviting Midlifer bloggers (45+ year olds)
  2. We are starting really small – and will only grow to 25 posts in total.
  3. We don’t want the usual posts, we exclusively want posts on your life and what you’re doing.
  4. We want people to Share The Love – it’s not just about you.



If this sounds remotely interesting to you then we’d love you to join us. You will only be able to link ONE post each week and what we require from you is to then visit several other posts – commenting on at least three of them and sharing at least five of them on your Social Media (you choose three SM sites and share the posts on all three).

It might take a little more time than your standard Link Party, but the rewards will include getting to know some other bloggers in your niche more, and it should also translate into much higher page views because the people participating will be making an effort to grow your blog while you help them grow theirs. We’re keeping the numbers low so that everyone gets to Share in the Love.



We really hope you’ll stop by and join us in our new endeavour. We know that it’s not going to appeal to everyone and we may only have a few who want to join us, but we’re hoping that there are others like us who want to connect and grow our blogs. We’re excited and hope you will be too. See you there!

Let’s Keep Sizzling!

        Hi Dee – just a note from me about the type of post that qualifies, it needs to be something that relates to your life or to Midlife – so no recipes etc. You can link a post you wrote a while ago if it fits the criteria and we’d love to have you join us if you have one to share. 😉

    Hi Sue – I’m so excited about our party and I hope that those who join us are looking forward to it too. It’s going to be such a refreshing change to be part of a group who want to promote each other and not just themselves. Can’t wait til next Wednesday!

    I love this!
    I made a note of it for next Wednesday as I’ve written on this topic for quite some time. (Still sizzling in my mid-fifties, but sixty isn’t far away!)

    This sounds wonderful Sue and Leanne, a couple of the most inspiring sharers. Your idea will be ideal for midlife bloggers to make friends and like you say, ‘share the love’.
    All the best dear ones. We will feature this on Thursday to give it more coverage.

    Sue, this is lovely. A small focused group of midlife lifestyle bloggers to help support each other. I can already tell this is going to be fun. Looking forward to following along as you ladies grow.
