All About France Link Up

This one goes out to all my fellow bloggers...I've started a new blog linky! All about France!

All About France blog linky with Lou Messugo

All About France is a monthly Blog Link Up that started for the first time in February 2015 and takes place every 1st Thursday of the month.  Each link-up lasts a week. The idea is to link up any posts about France, old or new, as long as there's something French about the subject. The idea then is that participants and readers will have fun hopping around different blogs reading and learning about France, and discovering lots of new interesting blogs along the way. Vive la France!....

If you are new to link-ups and not sure of the lingo, aim, etiquette or indeed what on earth I'm on about you'll find a comprehensive explanation here.  I hope it helps!

Here are some ideas to inspire you:

Travel in France - recent holidays, dream trips, remembering past visits, advice.

Living in France as an expat - challenges, best things about it, difficulties.

Frenchies living out of France - your experiences of your host country & difference/similarities with France.

Learning French - tips, problems, anecdotes, teaching methods.

French food - recipes, anecdotes, cooking, restaurants.

French culture - things you love about French culture, quirks, the similarities or differences you have found with your home culture.

Raising children in France or French children being brought up elsewhere. 

Poetry and Prose - please feel free to share a poem or short story about France.

Anything else you can think of that in some way relates to France or French.

 

AllAboutFranceBadge

 

And here are some "rules":

This is a link-up or linky - however you want to call it - so please SHARE THE LOVE. View, comment on and share fellow bloggers links, at least two but ideally as many as possible, don't just link-dump (persistent offenders will be removed). Remember to come back a few days later to see who linked up after you.

Old and new posts welcome. Please limit your posts to just 1 per link-up. Save the rest for future months!

Please add the All About France badge to the side bar of your blog and/or the post itself and a link back to either this page or the link-up. This helps to promote everyone's hard work. Posts without these will be removed.

Use the hashtag #AllAboutFrance when sharing on social media.  I will retweet tweets with the hashtag or if you mention me (@FibiTee).

Please consider following me on TwitterFacebookPinterestGoogle+ & Instagram as a courtesy (not obligatory obvs!) I am very appreciative and happy to follow back!

Please spread the word, tell your blogging friends and link up next time (1st Thursday of the month).

Grab the #AllAboutFrance badge here

    I look forward to reading the posts from other bloggers about France.
    I'm not sure where to post my links, but I'll click around and keep looking.
    I have a weekly meme called Dreaming of France that I post on Mondays and people can post on Mr. Linky there each Monday. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme

    Dear Phoebe, looking forward to linking up on the March one. I have lots of French content. Happy to put the logo on my blogs. Where do people normally put the link back though ? Will also follow your social media accounts.

  • Guest
    Phoebe Tuesday, 23 February 2016

    Hi Kerri, great to hear you've got loads of content for the linky. Most people add the html code at the end of their post which means the badge displays and it clicks through to here. But it's up to you. Some people put it on their sidebar.

  • Guest
    Phoebe Wednesday, 20 January 2016

    Hello Lou
    I started a blog this year as a sort of diary to keep my friends up to date with where I am and what I'm doing. i.e. living half the year in Villefranche sur Mer and the other half in UK. So I'm not sure I'm a good enough writer for your linky or that the very personal view I take on things is appropriate? Would be really grateful if you could have a quick look at www.theoldduck.com [later posts better than early ones!] I am, as it says, a silver surfer and really just comment on what ever comes into my head! I haven't tried to 'expand' from family or friends - but my partner says perhaps I should. He's biased! Thanks. Lisa.

  • Guest
    Phoebe Tuesday, 24 February 2015

    hi Lisa, of course you should link up your blog, there are no rules for how long you've been writing or whether you think you're good enough! I had a little look and enjoyed what I read. There's still time to link to this months - it closes tomorrow evening. If you miss that then the next one will be 5th March. I've been delighted with the response and have found lots of interesting new blogs to read. By the way, my name is Phoebe, my GITE is called "Lou Messugo" not me! You can read about that here http://www.loumessugo.com/en/blog/entry/what-is-lou-messugo Don't worry you're not the first to call me Lou and I don't suppose you'll be the last!!

  • Guest
    Lisa Absalom Tuesday, 24 February 2015

    Dear Phoebe
    I must apologise for calling you Lou - I knew perfectly well your name was Phoebe having read 'all about you'! Just another senior moment ! Also, thanks for suggesting I join in - no sooner said than done! I'm enjoying all the Blogs - yours and the Linkys' too! Lisa

  • Guest
    Phoebe Tuesday, 24 February 2015

    Our French Oasis Thursday, 19 February 2015

    Hi, I am new to blogging and have never done a link up, would love to participate and am happy to display the badge, which I love, by the way. However, and I am sure this sounds pretty stupid, but where do I post the link up. I am totally lost!!!

  • Guest
    Phoebe Thursday, 19 February 2015

    Thanks for wanting to join in! It is complicated the first time you do a linky but after the 1st time it becomes easy...! I have sent you instructions to your Facebook page. I hope you get them, if you don't see a message, check in your "other" folder within messages.

    Betty Carlson Tuesday, 17 February 2015

    Hello Phoebe and thanks for the invitation I got to this via Twitter. It has been a LONG TIME since I have participated in this sort of event.

    The idea is to post just ONE link per "linky event" period, right? And, of course, to comment on others (directly on their blog, but also in the comments if we want...?) -- and, also, to post the badge on our own blog.

    Nice badge, by the way!

    Sorry to sound like such an idiot! As I said, it's been a while...

  • Guest
    Phoebe Tuesday, 17 February 2015

    You've got it perfectly Betty! Not an idiot at all. I'm gald you like the badge, I had fun making it. (They're my lips!!)

    Sounds great! I went to Paris a month or so ago and it was one of the most amazing places I have ever been. x

  • Guest
    Phoebe Sunday, 15 February 2015

    Did you write about your trip Hollie? If so it will be perfect for the linky.

  • Guest

    Menai Friday, 13 February 2015

    I would love to link up - saw your post in the Franglaise life Facebook group. I have been teaching a French club at my daughter's school now we are home in England. When we went travelling in India I had no idea that I would end up speaking so much French or teaching English to French people over there. I would love to write about that experience and legacy. Thank you.

  • Guest
    Phoebe Friday, 13 February 2015

    Brilliant, I look forward to reading about your experiences. :)
