The Link to Leisure
This is the final wrap-up post to celebrate the last Leisure Link. Today I feature all the bloggers who took the time to link-up for the last time!
And the winner with the most clicks was…
All in a Dad’s Work, with his post “We Hit the Trails.” Eric is a great dad who gives his boys Crash and Bang wonderful leisure experiences and tells about them in hilarious ways. Please check out his blog.
The rest of the Leisure Linkers wrote about Halloween-themed hi-jinks, including recipes, fashion, costumes and leisurely experiences. Please take a moment and visit their blogs.
Thank you to all who supported and participated in The Leisure Link over the past few months!

How do you link to your leisure?
Do you let barriers and constraints get in the way of your much needed downtime? Many times we get our hearts set on participating in an activity, only to have our hopes dashed because of lack of money, time, or another barrier. Sometimes the weather affects our leisure plans for being outdoors. Sometimes a day was planned to sit and relax by watching a favorite movie or just reading a book, then the phone rings, or unexpected guests arrive, or you see dust on the TV stand. sigh
Don’t you hate that? Don’t let anyone steal your leisure time! Guard it jealously.
Speaking of links, have you heard of the website StumbleUpon?
It is a content discovery tool tailored to your personal interests. I am still learning about it. I have added a StumbleUpon button at the bottom of my blog posts, so if you utilize StumbleUpon and have an account, please stumble my post. I have been stumbling other bloggers to my list “Blogs I Like.”
Janet Wald of Mostly Blogging, shared this post, “How to Dramatically Increase your Blog Traffic,” focusing on using Stumble Upon and Reddit. These sites can also be used for content curation and StumbleUpon is rather fun.
UPDATE** If you want further information on adding a StumbleUpon button to your WordPress blog, check out Sue Coletta’s post: The Power of StumbleUpon: How to Add Sharing Button to WordPress dot com.
