Hi everyone and welcome to the newly named #TheFoodCalendar linky (it was my #FoodYearLinkup in case you couldn’t work that out 🙂 ).
With the miserable and un-summery weather we’ve been having over the last month, I’ve kept myself busy sat indoors doing a spot of rebranding. I suspect the miserable weather is actually all my fault as I happily mentioned enjoying lots of BBQs in the last linkup post – my garden has been thoroughly waterlogged ever since so sorry about that!
Along with the name change I’m also making a few changes to how the linky works (nothing too major, don’t worry). I’d love it if #TheFoodCalendar could become more than just a linky, so I’ve created more ways to join and share your posts, pictures and general thoughts about all of the events in the calendar.
How to join in the #TheFoodCalendar
Pick and mix any that you feel like…
- I’ll start with the traditional way of adding your post(s) to the linky at the bottom of this page.
- Share a post/picture/thought about any of the events using hashtag #TheFoodCalendar on Twitter and/or Instagram (you can also tag me @CharlotteLK on Twitter and @charlotteslivelykitchen on Instagram if you like).
- Pin your post to my dedicated #TheFoodCalendar Pinterest board – to join the board make sure you’re following me (as it won’t work otherwise) and then leave your Pinterest ID in the comments and I’ll add you.
I find many linkys have all sorts of rules, I’m pretty sure that I forget what I’m supposed to do when I’m joining in with each of them and break them half the time (sorry if I’ve ever broken yours) so I’m going to keep my “rules” really simple…
Share the love… That’s it.
If you link up a post, head over and comment on/share some of the others. If you tweet, then RT some others on the hashtag, Instagram – give out a few hearts and comments, and if you pin then repin (or save as they now like to call it) a few from the board.
I have a badge (because what self respecting linky owner doesn’t eh? 🙂 ), and if you’d like to add it to your posts (or just a simple link back to this post or the calendar) so people know where to come and share and find other similar posts then that would be great too.
What’s in the calendar for July?
It seems as though food event planners take a similar view to the summer as those people that do the TV schedules – there’s very little on!
1 June – 31 August – Breast Cancer Care – Strawberry Tea
10 June – 10 July – Euro 2016
27 June – 10 July – Wimbledon Fortnight
3-10 July – Food Safety Week
16 July – National Cherry Day
As always, if you know about an event that’s not in the calendar then please feel free to add it, just let me know what the event is in the comments.
So what are you waiting for? Link up up right here…
By linking up your posts you’re giving me permission to use an image from the post in future roundups (with credit and a link back) and also to share the post with an image on social media. If you don’t want me to do either of these then just let me know in the comments.
Linkup Badge Code
To add the #TheFoodCalendar badge to your post, simply copy the code below into the text editor of your post (any problems, let me know and I’ll do my best to help).
Before I go…
I’ve been busy adding new events into the calendar including adding events for 2017 (as I had people asking so they can get themselves organised!) so make sure you take a look and see what’s new.
