Lil Luna Link Party #89

Link Party · August 7, 2012

It’s time for another link party!!!

I hope you guys are as stoked as I am, but before we begin I want to change things up a bit.

Here is what I am thinking… {and I truly want to know what you guys think too.}

I’ve decided to change a few things for my link parties.


1. Every Tuesday morning {starting next week} I will have a separate post for the most popular link as well as my other favorite links from the previous link party.

2. I want to promote YOU!!! From now on I will be pinning {from the original source} every project that makes it to the featured list. I want to make sure you get traffic for linking up! {And just FYI, I don’t always pick the most viewed links for the feature list – I truly go through the entire party and look for the ones I think are original and awesome!!}

PS – Follow me on Pinterest HEREΒ so you can see me pinning your creations. πŸ™‚

3. I’m going to add a few more rules to the Link Party

  • I’m asking that everyone pin {from the original source} the MOST VIEWED LINK. I think it’s pretty awesome when someone makes something wonderful and can inspire us. For thanking them for the inspiration I think everyone should try to pin that link. I think it will be also an incentive to everyone to try and come up with original content as well as take good pictures of it because those are the posts that usually get the most hits.
  • Although I love round-ups, I will no longer allow readers to link up a round-up post UNLESS they have created a graphic describing that post.

Let me know what you guys think about this… I really want your opinion and thoughts. πŸ™‚

Now, let’s get this party started!!

1. Link to the specific post for something YOU have created – craft, recipe, idea (and not to your main blog page). If you have a round-up post, please use a graphic as your image and not someone else’s creation. πŸ™‚

2. No ads for shops, giveaways, etc. please πŸ™‚

3. Be sure to spread the love and visit other posts and leave them a comment!

4. Help promote others – go to the original post and PIN the most viewed link.

Thanks for hosting the linkup. Hope your week is goin’ great!

Ashton @ Something Swanky

Thanks for hosting! You new ideas sound good to me. I especially appreciate that you’ll continue to allow round-ups with a designated graphic. Anyone who’s ever put together a decent round up knows they’re plenty of work and deserve attention too!

    Ashton @ Something Swanky

    …ironically, I just realized after typing that, that I accidentally selected the wrong image for the round up post I linked up. Sorry about that– won’t happen again πŸ™‚
