Lots of things are blooming in this lovely weather… but today I am not talking about plants. I am talking about a brand spankin’ new feature and link party that Skye from Neathering Our Fest and I have been busy putting together! Lots of emails, a few text messages, a couple of sketches later and DRUM ROLL please…. in full bloom: helping grow your indie biz! Every other week Skye and I will both be featuring a hand-picked handmade shop on our blog and hosting a linky party for you to link up your shop! We want to help spread the word about what you are doing and help grow your sparkly slice of the internet. Since we are co-hosting this shindig – if you link your shop up here it will also show up on Skye’s blog post. Here are a couple of guidelines for linking up:
- Link up shops/shop platforms only. Please do not link to a specific item, a blog post about your shop, your blog (unless your shop platform is hosted on your blog) or anything other than your beautiful shop.
- After you link up, visit two or three of the other shops that have linked up and tweet, pin, or facebook about your favorite item from their shops!
- If you have a blog and want to help spread the word, feel free to add this button to your sidebar:
<a href=”http://www.poofycheeks.com” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://i847.photobucket.com/albums/ab40/eskynicole/indie_biz.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”Photobucket” /> Are you linking up your shop? Share the button on your blog! Make sure to check in next Saturday for our first shop feature and linky party! In the mean time – we’d be thrilled if you tweeted about it (use #infullbloom), shared this post on your Facebook page or pinned the image on Pinterest to help get the word out! What are your plans for this awesome Saturday? It is a great day to get outside! The boys and I are making a stop at the Farmer’s Market and the heading to the beach! (Please wear your sunglasses if we could possibly be at the same beach. I’m so pail it could blind you!)
