Paris in July - Week 1
Bienvenue a Paris en Juillet 2018. Welcome to Paris in July 2018. I'm so excited about the level of interest this year, with more than 20 participants now signed up. Merci. Thank you.
I started hosting this event with my friend Karen many years ago now as a trial to see if I liked blogging and if it offered me something creative and challenging in my life back then. While Karen now has a family and career demands that challenge her amply, I am still hosting Paris in July and still finding it fulfilling and rewarding. I really enjoy the connections that this event brings.
What I love about this event, is that it's like having a month long dinner party with like minded friends. You know - the sort of party you cant tear yourself away from cos you're having such a nice time.
So, for those who are new to this (and we have a few so that's REALLY exciting), what generally happens is that each week ( and I try to do this on my Saturday morning), I will post a weekly summary of what has been happening in the event, and I post a new Mr Linky so you can then enter the next weeks posts in there for others to find. I've also created a blogroll on the side of my blog for you to get easy access to all participants blogs. This year there's also a twitter and instagram #ParisinJuly2018, so if you're into those mediums - make the most of it. (I dont do too much in that space but others have already started).
Remember, many of us love all things about Paris and France, so you can post on anything - food reviews or recipes, favourite memories or dreams of visiting Paris, movies, music, book reviews, history insights, favourite french TV shows... anything. So here goes... link in and enjoy the journey.
How tomuse Mr Linky: in Name - indicate your name and the nature of your post ie book review or title of your post... then post the URL link to the post you want people to come and visit.
