We are full throttle into Summer here. The weather has been quite cooperative of late. 80s and gorgeous. No complaints here on that front. So it's time to celebrate with another Gotta Have It/Gotta Blog It Link Up Party. If you haven't been here before for a link up party, here's how it goes. If you have an online shop or a blog, join the fun. All you have to do is post a link! It's that easy. If you don't have an online shop or blog, no worries. You'll get to peruse all the great shops and blogs that link up right here- all for you to find in one place on Mercantile Muse. For me, it's a way of supporting my fellow online shop owners and bloggers. For you, it's a way of discovering wonderful new shops and blogs. Either way, it's all good! So won't you join in the fun at this Virtual Summer Party?
Grab a glass of this glorious punch (thank you Martha!) and mingle around and get to know other guests. That's what a party is all about, right?
Please read the Rules of the House, before linking:
*If you take part in the link up, you will go on a list of particpants and receive an e-mail from me (from the address firstname.lastname@example.org) when the next Gotta Have It/Gotta Blog It link up party is underway.
*If you like Mercantile Muse enough to link up at the party, I'd love it if you became a follower. There are several different ways to follow in the sidebar to you're right, if you're not following already.
*You'll also find Bates Mercantile Co. here: facebook, pinterest, twitter. It'd be great to connect with you there too!
*I've changed the format a bit to make things a little easier. There is now only one link up section which covers both shops and blogs. So post one link for your shop and one for your blog if you've got one!
*Don't link and run, be kind and check out each other's links. Sure, this is all about promoting yourself, but it's also about paying it forward and making new connections. You won't believe the wonderful people you meet here on Mercantile Muse! Seriously. They rock. So please have a look around at other links.
*Share a link to the party, 'you two tell friends, and they tell two friends, and so on and so on'. It benefits us all--- blog, tweet, facebook, etc. If you blog and are so inclined to grab a button (from Mercantile Muse's button page) and feature it on your blog, that would be, as we say 'round these parts, wicked awesome. This can only be a great party with your help.
*Check back Monday when I feature some things I've found through the link up. It could be you!
And away we go (if you're reading by email click here it will bring you to the party). Thanks for coming!
Have a fantastic day in your corner of the world. I'm working on doing the same in mine. The sun is shining, I'm feeling a bit better, the garden is watered, the pool is clear....all is right with the world.
Ciao for now,
