Welcome to November’s #FoodYearLinkup, the place to share and discover posts about foodie events in November.
Before I get going with this month’s linkup I wanted to share my favourite post from October’s #FoodYearLinkup.
After a quiet summer, we had loads of you come and join last month which was brilliant. It’s been really tough to choose my favourite post as there was such a great variety. I usually share my favourite recipe, but this month I decided to go for something a little different and chose this post from Claire at Foodie Quine. It’s tell the story of her day making butteries and pancakes at a J G Ross for Craft Bakers Week and I thought it was a really interesting read.
#FoodYearLinkup’s first anniversary
Next month will be the first anniversary of #FoodYearLinkup. Firstly a huge thank you to everyone that has joined in, especially my lovely regulars xx
As this has been going for a while now, I wanted to take a few moments to ask if any of you have any feedback on the linkup. What you like about it and more importantly if there’s anything I can do to make it even better. I run it because I enjoy reading all of the posts, but I know that it’s important for it to work for everyone joining too, so if there’s anything you’d change then let me know in the comments, drop me an email or send me a Facebook message. If you’ve not joined in before then is there something I can do to encourage you to start? And if you’re not a blogger but a reader coming to have a look, then what would you like to see from these posts?
So what’s the theme this month?
As always, I’d love you to come and link up any foodie posts relating to the events in the Food Blogger’s Calendar for November.

If there’s an event missing from the calendar that you’d like to link up a post for, that’s absolutely fine, just make sure you let me know what the event is in the comments so I don’t get confused 🙂 .
To join in with the #FoodYearLinkup…
- Click the “add your link” button and add your link with a nice picture to entice everyone to come and have a look.
- Add the #FoodYearLinkup badge to your post so your readers know where to come to find lots of other fun foodie posts (you’ll find the code towards the bottom of this post).
- To make my life easier I’d appreciate it if you could leave me a quick comment letting me know which event you’re linking up for (it helps me to tweet them at the right time).
- Join me in visiting the other linkers making sure you comment on at least one (I’m more than happy for you to link up several posts, but if you do it would be great if you would go and comment on/share one other post for each one you link).
- Come back again next month and do it all again.
Throughout the month I’ll be tweeting every entry and if you tweet me (@CharlottesLK) using the #FoodYearLinkup hashtag to let me know you’ve linked up I’ll make sure I include you in the tweet. I’ll also be pinning every entry on my dedicated #FoodYearLinkup board and may include my favourites in round up posts for a selection of events throughout the year. The tweets and round up posts may also include images from your post. If you’d rather they didn’t then just let me know in the comments.
So what are you waiting for? Link up up right here…
