SLT Featured Post Badge

We really enjoy reading your posts each week! Featured post bloggers, please grab the badge above and display it on your site! Link it to one of the host blogs’ posts for the specific week that you were featured.

Here are our picks from last week’s submissions. Thanks to all who participated — it is always hard to choose!

Share Your Simple Lives Thursday Post

Bloggers, make a “Simple Lives Thursday” post on your own blog, then come back here to add your post to the linky box below the featured posts. If you don’t have a picture, feel free to download the Simple Lives Thursday banner (at top of post) and upload it using the script’s prompts (it is easy). Your post will appear on all host blogs!

Non-bloggers, feel free to add a comment here with any ideas or thoughts about simple living.

These are three simple guidelines for participation:

1. If linking real, traditional and simple recipes, please make sure all ingredients used are whole — such as whole grains, vegetables, legumes, meats, even sugar. In order to keep the integrity of “nourishing” food, we will delete any recipes that utilize processed, boxed foods. We are definitely not going to be ingredient policemen! But, please note that this is a hop hosted by advocates of the real, local and sustainable food movements.

2. Please link your posts back to one of the hosting blogs. This is a common blog hop courtesy. This link helps build the Simple Lives Thursday community by sending your readers to all of the other participants’ posts. We all end up sharing and learning from each other.

3. No giveaway or otherwise primarily advertising oriented posts. Keep your topics to fit our simple living theme of “consume less, produce more.” We will delete posts that don’t fit.

What will you share this week? We all look forward to your submissions!

    Thank you for featuring my Weed Free Garden Tip post. It’s an honor to be featured here!

    Today I’m sharing #21, Do You Have the Guts to Butcher a Chicken? It’s a newbies perspective on raising meat chickens and butchering…Is it worth it?

    It’s so good to be back here again. I’ve discovered so many great bloggers here on your blog hop! I’m sharing #29, “My Chicken Tractor…Sort Of!” It’s my attempt at making an embarrassingly redneck chicken tractor, but it’s frugal and it works!

    This week I am bringing the community two posts:

    One involves some reflections on my evolving ideas about diet, dieting, and eating ‘relgiously.’

    The other is a recipe method for making vegetable gratins and including lots of nutritious ingredients. I plan to use it even more in the upcoming fall months!

    Thanks for reading! I loved all of last week’s entries!

    I shared my Grain Free Zucchini Blossoms as well as an article about Stevia – Is it as good as they say?

    Thanks for hosting!

  5. says

    I’m sharing a few posts here – a vacation recipe roundup, my thoughts on hospitality and my recent housekeeping failures and how I’m handling them.

    Would love to have you stop by.

    Thanks to the lovely blogging gals hosting this link-up party.
