Roses Of Inspiration Linkup #1

Welcome, friends!
Today begins a new journey in blogging,
a journey that I am thrilled to have you be apart off.
Today is the first Tuesday of many Tuesdays {Lord-willing} for the
Roses of Inspirations Linkup Party.
Before I explain how the party will work I would like to say
thank you for joining me and being right by my side - you are amazing!
I hope you have fun, get inspired, and meet new friends along the way.


Now lets get this party started. . .

{ 1 }
You can link up anything that your heart desires. . .
crafting - recipes - encouragement
Scripture - devotionals - photography
healthy living - gardening - home living
sewing - crochet/knitting - fashion
beauty - tea time - home decor - etc

{ 2 }
You can linkup as many posts as you want
and they can be posts you have written today, last week, last month, or last year.

{ 3 }
There will be fun giveaways throughout the year.
I will simply add up the amount of people who participated in one of the link-ups,
write the numbers down on paper and draw the number of the winner.
So if you link-up more than one post you will have a greater chance of winning.
These giveaways will be random

so you never know which link-up I will choose for a giveaway.

* * * * *

The party is called Roses of Inspiration because the things you share on your blog
are inspiring to others and this is the perfect place to share them.
Your blog will get more exposure and you'll make some sweet friends through the process.
Plus, you will have the opportunity of being featured on my blog.

Below is a button available for your sidebar to let others know about
Roses of Inspiration.
You do not have to link your post back to this blog,
but if you do than thank you - it is appreciated.

The Enchanting Rose

If you are familiar with link parties than you will want to skip this part,
but if you are new than let me help with the process. . .
Click on the "Add your link" button 
and a screen will pop up which is where you will add your information.

The "Link" box is where you will enter the direct link to the post that you are sharing.
It is very important to link up the specific post and not your main blog page.

The "Link Title" box is where you will enter the title of your post.

And finally the last box is "Email"
and I'm sure you know what to do there.

Then, pick a photo to go with the post that you're sharing and click "Done."
Easy peasy :)

* * * * *
Have fun, my friends!
I am very excited to see what you share 
and will be around to visit each one of your blogs.
And speaking of visiting,
please take a few moments to visit at least two of the posts shared-

everyone loves visits and comments.
Have a lovely day!

Oh Stephanie how lovely to see your first 'Roses if Inspiration' link up this morning - congrats to you!
I see many of my friends have joined in too which is lovely.
We are all part of this big blogging family, each with our own ideas and path, working towards the goals that we have set for ourselves in 2015 and and being mindful of what our Lord has planned for us too!

I'm off to work, but I will catch up with your party goers when I get home this evening!
Hugs
Shane

Joy@aVintageGreen said...

Happy New Year Stephanie. Thank you for your first Roses Of Inspiration today.

Connie said...

I have never been in a link party and I want to thank you for the instructions. My only question is, in the first step where you say clink on the " Add your link" button . . . where do I find it. On your blog or mine and where. I know I sound dumb, but I think that if I could find this button I would be okay in the rest. I'm just an old dog trying to learn a new trick and do it right the first time :)
While I am here, I would like to invite you over to my blog to help me celebrate my three year blogging birthday.
I'm having three Give-A Ways and would love to have you help me celebrate :)
