The party has started! Tuesday Turn About ‘the link party’ has arrived and we are ready to get this started!

What Is Tuesday Turn About

Tuesday Turn About is the newest link party on the block!  

A link party is a weekly post put together by one or more bloggers (hostesses) where other bloggers in “Blogland” can come and add (link-up) posts from their own blogs.  This becomes a central location where readers and bloggers can discover LOTS of bloggers’ posts and sites that they may have never seen before, and find posts of bloggers they are familiar with that they may have missed.  A perfect party for both readers and bloggers, right? 😉

Tuesday Turn About was first started as a weekly round-up post by yours truly.  However, because of blogging ‘ins-and-outs’ (I won’t go into the boring details), I had to stop the weekly post.

Recently, my friends Michelle, from Thistle Key Lane, and Crissy, from First Day of Home, and I decided that it would be fun to bring TTA back as a link-party.  This way, we ALL get to share in the fun!

What in the Heck Does ‘Turn About’ Mean?

So, do you remember in Pride and Prejudice, and other Jane Austen literature, after everyone at the party is finished with dinner and they’ve retired to the parlor?

Do you remember how some are playing cards, and some are reading books, and others are conversing? Then one person who isn’t doing anything will walk up to another person that isn’t doing anything and ask, “Do you want to take a turn about the room?”  And they proceed to walk around the parlor, chit-chatting, usually about silly things that actually have a lot of underlying meaning (this always seemed so foreign to me, but it has always ‘stuck’ with me, ya know?).

As they continue their turn about, they acknowledge others with a sweet little nod and ‘check-out’ the activities that their fellow party-goers are doing and enjoying.

So, Tuesday Turn About is all about taking a ‘turn about’ Blogland, checking out what everyone is doing, getting inspired, and even perhaps taking part and ‘trying-out’ what we find interesting and enjoyable.

Meet Our Hostesses

I’m so stinking happy to be hosting with my sweet friends, Crissy and Michelle.  Each of my fellow hostesses has a style that is simply lovely, and I love learning from both of them!

Though never required, we would love it if you would follow us on one or more of our social medias:

Here’s what your hosts have been up to…

(Next week all three hostesses will be shared in this area.)

What Will Be Special About Each Week?

Glad you asked!

Every week each hostess will be choosing two posts from different bloggers that have linked-up the week before. Those posts will then be featured on that hostess’ own blog!  This way, we get to feature a total of SIX posts that link up the prior week!  Be sure to visit each hostess, as we will be featuring two different posts on each of our blogs.

PLUS, we’ll also be featuring the post that was visited the most by readers and fellow bloggers.  Fun, right?


Now It’s Your Turn! Link Away!

Okay, let’s get to linking and partying!

Because this is a party, we encourage all who link up to visit several other bloggers who have linked as well – comments and pins are a great way to spread the love!

Before you get started, take a look at our guidelines:

  • This party is for home decor and home-related posts only (recipes, organizing, DIY, crafts, etc.). Link up to 3 related posts. Please do not link up informational posts that do not relate to the topic.
  • If you would please not link up shops, advertising, round-ups, other link parties, or any posts promoting sales, we would appreciate it.
  • DO NOT PIN FROM IMAGES ON THIS PAGE (it just won’t work right on Pinterest). However, please visit the original post/source and pin from there. That works perfectly!
  • By linking to the party, you give us permission to share your projects on our blogs and social media. We will always give proper credit with a no-pin image.

So, let’s have fun this week with Tuesday Turn About the link party, and remember to come back next week to see the featured posts and most clicked post!
