The Ultimate Directory of Blogging Memes & Link-ups

Blogging

Hey, everyone! As you can see on the title, this is going to be an ultimate directory of blogging memes and link-ups! If you’re not familiar with these two terms, let me explain it to you real quick! It’s basically a method that bloggers used to share their posts, increase their traffic, find new bloggers or maybe just gain ideas for their upcoming post! The only difference that I notice between these two is, you usually just write your post based on the blogging meme that you joined, and this is a great method if you’re lack of post idea. And link-ups is pretty much self explanatory; you link up your post based on the link-ups’ theme that you joined, and this is a great method to get connected with fellow bloggers especially those who has the same niche with you!

Anyway! I found so many of it, not gonna lie. But I’ve filtered them so this directory (currently with 60+ links) will only consist of blogging memes and link-ups that actually still running (as per September 2018). With Blogtober coming up really soon, I think this directory will be quite useful too! We all know how stressful it can be to write post every couple days, let alone every single day!

This directory consist of varied topics of blogging memes and link-ups, including books (mostly), movies, music, crafts, foods, travels and just lifestyle theme in general! So, whatever niche your blog is, I hope you can found something to join here! Without further ado, here you go!
