All Things Bright & Beautiful Link-up #1

Yay – Hooray!

ATBB link up button

It’s time for my first LINK-UP as the grand finale to my Blogoversary month! I’m celebrating three years in Blogland where I’ve met so many kindred spirit taking joy in a variety of commonplaces. I have learned so much from many of you and have been blessed in forming new friendships. You’ve all inspired me in this blogging journey, and spurred me onto greater things. Not the least of which is hosting a link-up of my own!

In addition, for each entry in our Link-up this month, your name will be entered to win my Blogoversary Give-Away – a quartet of goodies representing each of the four lines in the All Things Bright and Beautiful Link-up theme verse.

So this is it! Time for an “Encore Performance” of your best posts this month at All Things Bright and Beautiful! What have you to share with us this month?

All Things Bright and Beautiful @ The Writers Reverie

Link posts that illustrate bright and clever ideas that make your world more beautiful. This might be a DIY before and after, a homespun recipe, a crafting tutorial, a visually beautiful home décor vignette, design, vintage find, teatime or tablescape, or a work of art that you have featured. Perhaps you’ve been on vacation and have created a post with some of your best photos from the gorgeous landscapes you saw. This would include nature photography and memes. If it is full of light and beauty – this theme verse is for your post!

All Creatures Great and Small @ The Writers Reverie

Link posts that tell stories about our animal friends. This is where we share an interesting antidote about our pets – cats, dogs, horses, goats, birds, etc. It is a great place for features about bird life in the garden – did you post something about some interesting visitors to the feeders this month? Share it as a highlight reel here. Photography capturing wildlife and original memes featuring animals with inspirational quotes is perfect for this verse theme.

All Things Wise and Wonderful @ The Writers Reverie

Link posts of a Christian devotional nature here. Explore Bible verses and teachings or personal reflections that inspire others to seek God. Truly – words and images that move us towards a deeper understanding of the love of God in Jesus Christ for us is, indeed, “Wise and Wonderful.” Anything relating to living out the Christian life according to Biblical Principles is what this verse theme is all about.

The Lord God Made Them All @ The Writers Reverie

Link posts sharing stories about the people you love – spouses, children, grand-children and special friends. But, remember – the Lord God made them ALL – so this is also a good place for stories about ALL people. For instance, stories about ministering to other people in your town, through a charitable mission or perhaps an overseas ministry helping the less fortunate. Celebrating grandma’s 90th birthday? God bless her – share the post about it.

Follow the criteria for linking up and you’re on your way:

  •  Link your post using the specific URL address of the post you’re linking only.
  •  You may link more than once up to four times – one each under each verse theme.
  •  Be sure to put a link to the All Things Bright and Beautiful (ATBB) Link-up in your post. You can list it as a link or include my button made especially for the link-up.
  •  Feature the ATBB button in your side-bar.
  •  Leave me a comment after you link-in.
  •  Visit at least one other blogger linking in and encourage them with a comment.
  •  Optional: Share the ATBB Link-up where you’re featured on your social media outlets.
  •  Please do not link sales related posts. If your post includes a link to your Etsy shop or shares news of your latest book publication in the context of the story, that is fine – but the post should not be about selling products or services. Posts shared should be about enriching the heart, mind, soul and spirit of our readers.

I’m joining Katherine’s Corner Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop – Celebrating my Blogoversary with the launch of my New Link-up and a Give Away is my “favorite thing” this week!
