October is here and for us that signals the beginning of the festive season. It starts with Thanksgiving which is a time to come together and count our many blessings. At the end of the month we have the excitement of Halloween. November is the month that we begin our holiday preparations. Then comes December and we all know what that means. Christmas!
Now is the time to come together and be thankful before the holiday rush sets in. Mommy and I wanted to do something special for you because we are thankful for all of our blog friends. We thought long and hard about the things you might enjoy this time of year. So we invented #LinkUp2Win.
What is #LinkUp2Win? Excellent questions. It’s a brand new linky party! It’s much like your standard linky party except that we will be giving away a prize to the blog with our favourite post. Mommy and I hope that #LinkUp2Win will become an annual tradition and this is the first year that we will be hosting this event.
I’m sure you’re all wondering what the prize will be for this year’s #LinkUp2Win. Mommy and I put our thinking caps on for this one too. The holiday season is fun, exciting, and expensive. What could possibly help our visitors have a happy holiday season? We think a $15 gift card at Amazon might be useful. Buy yourself a little something nice on us!
What else do you need to know about #LinkUp2Win? The linky will be open for the entire month of October. We will read and comment on every post that is added. When the linky is over we will select our favourite post. The winner will be announced the first week of November.
