Mix It Up Linky – 2/07/18

Hello everyone and welcome to the first week of the new style linky #MixItUp.

What is #MixItUp all about?

As a reader Mix is a great place for finding something random to read when I have a spare 5 minutes (or at 3am when I can’t sleep!).  It is also a fantastic place to share  posts from your favourite bloggers.

Therefore this linky is geared towards people who share my love of Mix.
However as much as I love Mix I realise there are a lot of bloggers who haven’t yet got to grips with it, or simply don’t want to use another platform.
Because my aim is to build up a community of bloggers who support, love and welcome one another, I don’t want anyone to feel excuded. Therefore people who join in will have the option to either add posts to Mix or comment on them in the traditional linky way (or both if you wish). I will add all posts linked uo to Mix.

Submitting a post to Mix if you chose that option is really easy as long as you have an account. If you are using an android mobile device, you can find out how to add posts to StumbleUpon here.

The Mix Masters

Every week I will be giving a shout out to two posts from the previous week.
These posts will earn their writers the title of Mix Masters and they will be able to display this rather fantastic badge on their prize posts.

My Mix Masters this week were chosen from the posts submitted the the last ever #LGRTStumble linky.
First mix master of the week is an amazing gardener blogger Thomas Stone with his post 6 On Saturday
My second mix master post this week comes from EndaStories. The post Whats Wrong With The Picture is about those people who lack social manners.

The Rules

1- The linky opens at 10am (UK time) on Monday and closes at 8pm on Wednesday.

2- Please link up one post only (additional posts will be deleted).

3- The linky is open to all bloggers.

4- Please read and add to Mix or comment on the host post, the post before yours and at least two more posts of your choice.

5- Please add the linky badge to your post or sidebar.

6- Have fun reading and sharing the blogger love.

I will add every post submitted to my Mix account, and every week.

If you would like a RT please tag me, @HooksandDragons in your tweet.

Happy Mixing everyone.

    I guess I’m just slow, but how does posting it in the mix get back to you? Do I put a hashtag in the comments or an @? It seems like if I throw it out there, it cant be put on my board and then that’s it. How does anyone see it if I put it in the mix?

      Mix is like a directory of posts, articles, videoss etc. When you add a post to ome or more of your collectioms you also automatically add it to the main directory. People can search Mix for posts on subjects that interest them (for example I like to look at posts with crochet patterns and ghost stories)
