We are doing a Linky thing on Mondays! Starting TODAY, those of you with blogs will be able to link to your post showing your Orca Bay progress every Monday throughout the mystery.
I knew NOTHING about these linky things, I’ve never ever entered one, only followed them on Judy’s blog for Design Wall Monday ((Good stuff there folks, be sure to check that out too today!)) and I’ve followed Jo’s when she had her Crumb-Along going.
So who did I go to for the ins and outs of linky things and which works best and how to do it? I had emails flying back and forth between BOTH Judy and Jo…and here I am, and we are trying it out!
Rules: There’s always rules! You can’t just link your post to your WHOLE BLOG. It has to be “POST SPECIFIC” So upload your post, then click on the title of your post to make the post address show up in the address bar at the top of your browser. Copy that. Paste THAT into the linky thing. This way people will be directed to the correct post on your blog! And PLEASE put a link back to MY BLOG in your post ---
I’m leaving this linky open for the week, until 11:59pm on Thursday, because FRIDAY our next step goes live and the following Monday you can show your stuff on the next linky day.
***NOTE*** You can link ANY progress of any step on any of the Mondays, you don’t have to just post part 1, or part 2 on specific Mondays….any progress is good progress, right?!
But before you go linking, or click to look at everyone’s links….I have something to share with you!
First off…my friend Linda Franz and I go way back to our early Dear Jane days ((Yes, I can even say back in the ‘90s because it was 1998 or 1999 when I first started that crazy journey!)) and she emailed me yesterday afternoon about doing a post for quarter square triangles with her Ink Lingo! Have you heard of Ink Lingo? Well, if not, it just might be the PERFECT technique for you! Click HERE to find out more.
She’s even offering a discount on the software for Quarter Square triangles….The pic at the beginning of this post AND the one above with Monkey were lifted from Linda’s Blog for emphasis! LOL! Thanks Linda!
Enjoy your Monday! I’ve got a fun afternoon planned! Lisa is coming to sew! YEAH! And I’ve got miles of binding to hand stitch down, so she’ll be good company for me.
