Ok. I’ve got an announcement. It’s a big’un. Ready? Next week, on Sunday, I will be hosting my first EVER linky party. Yep. It’s true.
I’ve been a little afraid of the idea, mostly because, you know, fear of rejection and all. I mean, who wants to host a linky with two links - one of them being mine? That said, I’ve decided to throw caution to the wind.
So, what’s this party all about? Well, here’s your official invite:
It’s a snapshot linky! And here’re the details.
I’ve learned through many attempts at writing, that sometimes the most successful products develop by working backwards. When the title comes to me first, I go with the flow.
This linky is all about working backwards. Finding inspiration through the title of the piece and beginning there. Each Sunday, I’ll post the prompt for the next week - or the title of your snapshot, if you will. You’ll carry this title around with you, mull it over, taste it, feel it out, and snap some photos that you feel encompass this title. The next Sunday you’ll check out my interpretation, link your snapshot up to the linky party, check for the new title for the next week, and look through a few of my favorite links, featured right here. The party will run from Sunday through Tuesday night, to give people plenty of time to link up. The “title” will generally be commonly used phrases, metaphors, proverbs, or epithets.
Here are the rules: (Rules??? For a party??? Maybe they’re more like a dress code... you know, black tie only...)
1. You can link up as many photos as you’d like. Use separate posts and link them all, put them all in one post, and link it once - whatever.
2. You don’t have to be a follower of me, but you DO have to post my button. It’s only fair, right?
3. Please check back and look at other people’s photos. Because it’s the nice thing to do.
4. And get excited. Because next Sunday, March 13th, will be the first ever
The title for next week is:
“Welcome to the Jungle.”
Get ready to party!
