Link Party #1

Welcome to the first ever Link Party on The Purple Pumpkin Blog!

The sun is *finally* out in the UK and since I like to theme things up every now and again, there is a theme for this first link party – Fun in the Sun! Simply use the button at the end of this post to add a link to your blog post (please make sure you link to the specific post) with a recipe, craft, idea, design, party (or whatever!) that you have created, with a summer theme. You can even add several links if you so wish!  And it doesn’t even have to be a recent post – any post from your blog is fine!

There are a five simple rules…and here they are…

  • The link must be to something you have created
  • Please, no links to ads, giveaways, shops, link parties etc
  • Help spread the blog love by visiting other links and leaving a nice message, and maybe how you found them – as bloggers, we like to know where visitors are coming from!
  • Grab one of the link buttons below and post on your blog
  • At the end of the week, I will feature some of the links, so when I do, be sure to grab a ‘featured on’ button (which will be available on that post)
It would be really lovely if you followed my blog by subscribing to my feed or joining me on Facebook!
If you have never joined a link party before, don’t be shy!  Just post your link following the steps at the end of the post and submit your recipe, craft, idea, design, party (or whatever!)  It took me a while to join in at a link party, but I think they’re great fun, and you get to see lots of different blogs and ideas :)

Since this is my first link party, I really hope that some of you will join in and we can all get some great ideas from each other!  I plan on holding a link party every week, so remember to stop by!



Or you can add a text link…

      Thanks for stopping by Holly! A weekend of [some] sunshine has brought grey skies and rain to my part of the UK :( At least I have some summery recipes to share and keep me going in the hope that England WILL see a summer this year!!

    Thanks for hosting! Look forward to linking up again in the future!
