Hello and welcome to The Farmhouse Friday Link Party #45!
Hey guys! How was your week?
I have a small announcement this week – I’m changing the name of this blog from “The Painted Hinge Farmhouse” back to just “The Painted Hinge.” I wanted to try out the name with “Farmhouse” added to it for a while as I felt it was more descriptive of what this blog is all about, but in the end I don’t think it made all that much of a difference. “The Painted Hinge” is just simpler and rolls off the tongue better.
I consider this a “small” announcement because I never changed the domain name (although I did think about it!). If you blog and you’ve changed your domain name, you know that it is a BIG deal as it takes a lot of time and careful planning, as well as taking months to get your blog traffic back up after the fact. I know this because I changed the name of this blog a few years ago (you can read about it on my about me page) and it’s definitely not for the faint of heart.
So what do you think – do you like that I dropped “Farmhouse” from my blog name, or should I have just let it be? Have you ever changed your blog name and survived to tell the tale?
This week’s features:
The party rules are super simple! Link up your favorite DIY projects, decor projects, and crafts that are farmhouse style. If it doesn’t fit into that description, please don’t link it up. Please no food/recipe posts. You can link up your new and old posts alike as long as you only link them up here once.
I don’t require you to link back to this party, but if you do, I would sure appreciate it! I also don’t require you visit or comment on other blogger’s linkups, but it’s always a nice way to share the bloggy love! Comments are like Skittles to bloggers – we love them and we can’t get enough of them! If you pin anything from the party, please pin it from the original source.
By linking up, you will get a chance to be featured here at next week’s party! You will also get a chance for your post to be shared on my Facebook group DIY Farmhouse Style, which at this writing has over 277 thousand members! Unfortunately now this is the only way to share your blog posts and links in the group. I’ve had too many problems in the group with people sharing inappropriate links disguised as links to blog posts, so I can no longer allow anyone to post blog links directly.
By linking up to this party, you agree to give me permission to share your posts and pictures via social media and as features, roundups, etc. with an explicit link back to your original source.
Thanks so much for stopping by at The Farmhouse Friday Link Party #45! I hope you have a wonderful weekend and week ahead and I’ll see you back here next Friday!
