All About France #31

Posted by on in All About France linky

Welcome to the 31st All About France monthly blog linkythe place to find the best blogs about France! If you’re looking to link up a blog post, find some travel inspiration or just have a read about la belle France then you're in the right place.

All About France blog linky with Lou Messugo

I've had a massive break not just from this linky but from blogging in general and last month was the first month since this blog began back in April 2012 that I didn't post anything.  It's been quite refreshing stepping away from all but a tiny bit of Instagram over the summer, but hopefully I'm back now and ready to attack this rentrée head on!

We had a lovely summer, driving the furthest we've ever driven on an epic road trip from Southern France to Northern Scotland and back again - 5800 kms over nearly 4 weeks!  And then I went back to Scotland again last weekend to settle The Teen into university, a very emotional time as he also turned 18 while I was there. I now have an adult son which feels rather surreal (though he is at least still a teen!) 

Thanks to everyone who linked up last time, here are a few of my favourites:

Villandry, or the art of garden design by Four Acorns

A photo journal from a family getaway in the Dordogne by The Pigeon Pair and Me

Views of a total solar eclipse from France by Falcondale Life

Secret French Riviera: hidden spots worth a visit by Access Riviera

 
What is All About France?

All About France is a monthly blog linky, linking up blog posts about France.  These posts can be freshly scribbled or from your archives as a way of bringing new life to an old article.  There is no date limit and the only rule for subject matter is that it is about France in some way.  This can mean French language, French food, French style, French literature, expat life in France, French expats abroad or travel in France among other things.  The linky opens on the 1st Thursday of each month and stays open for a week.

Here's how to join in the fun:

• You can link up one post, old or new as long as it's about France/French.
• Please make sure you include the All About France badge at the bottom of your post or in the sidebar of your blog, or a hyper-link back to me (the code is below).
• Please comment on (my) the host's posts and at least two others, the more the merrier. Blog linkies only work if you're generous with your comments and shares.
• Please use the hashtag #AllAboutFrance when sharing on social media and in your comments.
• Don't forget you can join the Pinterest board and pin your post to it for extra exposure.

***Join in the fun on Instagram, use the hashtag #AllAboutFrance (and follow me @fibitee) and I'll share your picture.  Like/comment on other pictures with the hashtag***

For more information on All About France you can take a look at the introductory post I wrote here. This linky will stay open for a whole week and the next one will be only 3 weeks later on Thursday 5th October, only days before a really big birthday for me - one that I am NOT looking forward to.  I may have gone into hiding!
