Mix It Up Linky 21/01/19

Hello everyone. According to the radio today is Blue Monday, the most depressing day of the year when everyone is cold, fed up of the dark days and still skint from Christmas. Personally I think it’s a load of tosh made up by holiday companies to get us to book our summer holiday. I’m not in the slightest bit blue today, instead im excited to see what glorious posts you all link up this week.

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 Mix 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.

First Mix Master post of the week is Sustainable Responsible Living with a very useful and important post about Plastic Detox Challenge

My second Mix Master post this week comes from Lauren Sparks, a beautiful post about her Knight In Polished Armour

The Rules

1- The linky opens at 12 midday (UK time) on Monday and closes at 8pm on Wednesday.

2- Please link up to two posts 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.

Happy Mixing everyone.
