Merry Monday Linky Party, link party, linky party

Welcome to the 5th Merry Monday Linky Party!

  • Thank you to everyone that participated in last weeks Merry Monday Linky Party. There were lots of great link ups and I hope that you all had a chance to visit some of them.
  • You're party hosts were busy sharing your link ups on either Twitter, FB, Pinterest (some to several group boards), Stumbleupon, and Google+. We want to help get your posts out to as many people as possible and would appreciate if you share the party and help us out too.
  • Going forward, the Merry Monday Linky Party will be introducing a new guest host bi-monthly. This means you're link up will be seen on 5 different blogs! This week, I want to welcome a new guest co-host to the link party, Jade from Jonesin' For Taste! Remember, each host picks their own features, so make sure you visit their blogs to see if you've been featured!
  • All features will be pinned to the Merry Monday Linky Party Pinterest board, so follow along to see the top features of the party.
  • If you're interested in being a featured co-hosts for the party, please sign up! The party is booked until the end of August, so new openings won't be until September.
