  1. This is a great list! I have been looking for a few link-ups to participate in but couldn’t think of many, other than Top Ten Tuesday. Dani @ Perspective of a Writer has a link-up on Thursday all about our favorite characters, if you’re interested in adding that to your list. And for kidlit fans, we host a Children’s Book Tuesday meme on Tuesday 🙂 Thanks for sharing this!

  2. Thank you for this!

    I have created a new blog meme called Cinema Sunday. It is where each week I will post a review for a movie I have seen that week.
    I would love it if other bloggers started to take part in this meme! They may write a movie review or take they’re own spin on it and showcase the movies they’ve seen that week or movies they can’t wait to watch!
    I have a banner at the top of my Cinema Sunday posts that all bloggers are free to use. I do hope that my meme will be featured on your list!
    Thank you for your time,

  7. This is a fantastic list! I’ll be sure to help spread the word about it! (And thanks for including the Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up!)
