Friday's Fave Five - What's It All About?


Hello and welcome to Friday's Fave Five.

It's a place to come on Friday's and think back over your week and just post about 5 favorite things from your week. It can be anything that tickled your fancy over the week. Favorite quotes, posts, happenings, scriptures, recipes, pictures, great internet finds, etc., etc. Go ahead and grab the button and make your own post. Be as detailed as you like, the more detail the more fun for those of us visiting.  Here are a few simple guidelines for those participating.

- I  ask that your post be kept family friendly.  All links that have items that are not G rated and don't fit Family Friendly will be deleted from Mr. Linky. I want to respect those younger people that occasionally join in or those that read with their parent.    

-Please link back to the Living to Tell the Story Fave Five post of that week and then add yourself to the Mr. Linky.

-Please remember the purpose of the FFF.  It is to find blessings in our lives and share them.  It is not a place to rant.   I don't mind a ranting post.  Sometimes we all need to do that, but FFF is not the time and place.   I understand sometimes it is darn hard to find a good thing but the idea is to develop a habit and deliberately look for and share even a small thing of something that blessed you or relieved your load.  Never feel that your positive is too small or silly to share.  If you need to share a difficulty in order for the blessing to be understood or to shed light onto the blessing, feel free, as long as the spirit of FFF is carried through.

 About Mr. Linky:
     - If you are not doing a Faves Five post, please don't add yourself to the Mr. Linky. The purpose of the linky is to direct those who have an interest to go and read other posts about Fave Fives. Those who link but don't have a Fave Five post will be deleted from the linky. We all have limited blogging time and if people are clicking on the link they are looking for the Faves Five post. Let's please honor that.

     -Also please link directly to your specific post and not to your home page. And please check that it made the link. (If it did it incorrectly, just go ahead and do another one with the words "working link" or "corrected link" behind your name. ) We want it to be as easy as possible for people to find your post.

     -Please keep Mr. Linky for Friday's Fave Five at it's home here at Living To Tell the Story.  We want to keep a central hub to make it easier for those joining in.  Feel free to encourage your own readers to come here to link up if they would like to do a post.

About the FFF buttons
     -Buttons are for the use of those participating in Friday's Fave Five.  They are the property of Living to Tell the Story.  Please don't alter them in any way. 

     -Please use an original button provided by Living to Tell the Story.  There are plenty to choose from.  Use whichever you desire.

     -If you'd like to put the button in your sidebar please feel free. If you are on Blogger, then just upload the button in your sidebar layout and where it asks for a link just add in the URL for this page. It will link the button for you automatically.


Thanks for joining in. Hopefully we'll all have some smiles, meet some new people, find out interesting things about each other, focus on the good things in our lives, and in general have lots of fun!

What a great idea! Just found you today (sorry - not sure where, maybe "the Simple Womans Daybook"?) but I think I'll be back on Friday to play along...

I would really like to participate in your Fav Five Fridays, but amd new to the blogging world, I am NOT sure how to do the mr Linky gadget .. could you please help me out so that by tomorrow (friday) I may participate in my first post. Thanks -- Sherry

I tried to participate in Five Faves once, I think it was two Fridays ago. I'm new at all this. Anyway, while reading your Mr.Linky instructions I kept wondering if I was one who did it incorrectly that one time I tried it. I'm not 100% sure I linked up correctly. I just wanted to apologize if I was the one who may have mislinked. I wanted to participate today, but something is blocking my fave recaller. I seem to only be able to think of the 50 unfaves. Weird week. Next time though.

Oh shoot - You ARE Friday Fave Five! LOL!

Next week would you drop me a reminder about Friday Fave Five on Wednesday or Thursday? I would love to participate but with the Positive Day thing going I know I will forget. I'm just not that 'with it'.

Have a great weekend!

I love your post. And I was delighted to discover we reside in the same city...that is if I am correct in recognizing a picture you have posted. Also your weather is dead on with mine. Would you consider calling me? I would love to ask you some questions about blogging. Blessings to you and than you.
