Follow Friday 40 and Over!!

Welcome to the 31st 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 Marie at "XmasDolly" 


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!!

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!

Woo Hoo! Thanks Java! Happy New Year to you, and yours, and I hope it's filled with good health, wonderful new memories, happiness, and prosperity!

  9. A friend pointed my way to your blog and, since I am a blogger over 40, I am a new follower and a new hopper. Happy New Year from Kathy at Inside of a Dog.

  12. Java,
    Once again thank you so much for hosting this extremely successful and great blog hop. It's a pleasure to be part of it. Heartfelt wishes for a successful and very Happy New Year.

  13. Hi Java, I've added the button and linked to you, but not sure what a blog hop is, so hope I've done it right!
    Anyway, Happy 2011 to you!

  17. I love your blog and so my dear I am passing this on to you.

  18. What a great blog! Thanks for hosting the blog hop and have a great New Year.

  19. Hey Java,
    it was nice to see you drop by my neck of the web. You left me a comment (thanks ;-) saying you couldn't find my 'follow' button. It's at the top left next to the search box. Hope you give it another try, what's a wanna-be earthbound deity without followers? (a politician?)

  20. I have a little question for you; my blog is up there at #8 and the link is good, but it's a different color than everybody else's. Does your software somehow know who's a male blogger? [If so I am very impressed]

  21. Thanks for hosting again this week, Java! I always enjoy visiting your site and the other bloggers' sites. Happy last day of 2010! blessings on your day, k

  22. Hi, I just stopped by to say I am giving you one of the "Stylish Bloggers Award". Here is an explanation of what to do if you wish to accept.
