Follow Friday 40 and Over!!

Welcome to the 48th edition of the  
Follow Friday 40 and Over!! 

Are you a blogger over 40? Yeah, welcome to the club!
Please join in the fun and get to know your fellow bloggers!!

Congratulations to my friend Beth Ann at 

"It's Just Life"

It’s Just Life

Her blog was randomly selected from the participants of last  Friday's Blog Hop  to be the featured blog this week!!

She holds the #2 Hot Spot this week. Make sure you show her some love and follow her blog.

As  a special gift, if your blog is selected and you do not have a blog  button, I will make one for you!!!  Plus I will add your button to my Awesome Blogs  page!!

I hope you like your button Beth Ann! I used a picture from your blog that I thought was perfect!

Maybe you will get selected next time!  Wouldn't it be great to have your blog showcased here!!!
Good luck to all!

The RULES to join in are very simple!

1. Grab the button
2. Add your link to the list
3. Visit as many other blogs as you can
4. Follow the ones you like (and comment on their blog to say that you are following)

NOTE:   PLEASE leave your blog address when you leave a comment!!  I have had  several people wanting to follow back but the blogger can't always be  found through the google info page!!

This list is  new each week. The links do not carry over. Please link up  each week  for new participants to find your blogs. It will be visible all week to  visit  the blogs listed.

While you are here, make sure you check out the
Over 40 Blogger List!!

Be sure to join if you haven't already!


If you would like to add the linky to your own post, use the code below to copy and paste into your blog:


  1. Thanks Java, I think this is one of the best features in blog land, I've gained quite a few new followers through it, so my thanks to you. I love your blog too!!

  2. Thanks for hosting again, Java! How's things? Fine I hope. I was at the dentist today and had four shots in the jaw cuz the bugger just didn't want to go numb. OUCH. Well, I'm off to bed for tonight. Be back in the morning to hop around and our wonderful group here. Have a great weekend.

  3. Thanks for inviting me.I am happy theres a community for bloggers 40 and over.

  4. Hello Again! I really liked blog hopping last week, so I'd like to try it again this week. Thank you for hosting again in this age group. I feel much more comfortable here. Did I tell you my friend Dolly told me about you, and that's how I got here. Have a nice day, and weekend.

  5. I just want to say that I think it's so sweet that you make blog buttons for your featured bloggers!

  6. Hi Java! Just stopping by quickly to say Hi and thanks for hosting the blog hop. I need help! I thought when my blog was set up that my FB coffee cup was going to the right FB and I found out Sunday night it has been going to my personal not Mary's Cup of Tea. The designer fixed the problem on Monday, but now I need to get everyone to come back and click on the badge. I would never had known it but I ran a hubspot check and it said I had 0 facebook followers so I got turned down for alot of reviews. I really hate to ask people to come back but if I dont' I lose about 200 people. Any suggestions on how to handle it? Thanks, I appreciate any suggestions!


  7. Hi there! Thank you for hosting.
    I’m a follower, and hope you’ll visit me soon and follow back!
    I've included a page on my site that lists blog hops for each day of the week, and this hop is listed there. If you know of other great hops, please let me know!
    Oh… also, earlier this week, I posted a list of great ways to save at the gas pump. I hope you’ll find this list helpful:
    Have a great week.
