Apple News for grandmas, plus GRAND Social No. 275 link party for grandparents

Apple News now features Grandma's Briefs

Do you have an iPhone? Do you read news in the Apple News app included on all iPhones? 

If so, you can now find Grandma's Briefs on Apple News! Just search "Grandma's Briefs" and it should come right up for you.

Then "favorite" the feed (with the little heart at the top) and it'll be added to your news feed for easy peasy mobile reading of new posts as they're published.

Pretty cool, right?

You can add your blog to the Apple News app, too. Find all the information on how to do it here: https://developer.apple.com/news-publisher/. It's pretty simple. Basically, you sign up then send links to several posts to peruse for admin approval. Once you receive notification you've been deemed Apple News-worthy, you add your blog name and logo and set your posts to go live as published.

If you apply, don't get anxious if you don't hear back right away. It took about two weeks for my approval to come through.

Good luck! And if you do add your blog, please let me know and I'll "favorite" it so I see your posts in my feed.

GRAND Social No. 275 link party for grandparents

Time to share your links! Please be sure to visit the links of at least a few others who have posted theirs. We're all here to support one another! Cheers!

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.

  • Grandparents who do not blog (or want to share something other than their own post) are welcome to add links to other posts grandparent readers may be interested in.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to the blog or website home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • I reserve the right to remove posts I feel are inappropriate. (Which hasn't happened yet, but I feel obligated to note that, just in case.)
  • Those who add links to the GRAND Social link party will be sent a weekly reminder when the party goes live. If you prefer to be removed from that email list, feel free to do so (and you'll still be more than welcome to join the party any time).
  • If adding your own post, including a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. 
  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
  • If you're not a linker, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment, even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
