It’s been forever since this feature has happened! Sorry ya’ll- some days the time just gets away from me! Continue reading
Today is a Giveaway heavy Mashup (but that’s ok- because you know my feelings on Giveaways! They make me see *hearts, stars, rainbows and sparkles!*)
Before we get into this Mashup, Traveling With T, for the month of May, will have at least 3 new giveaways- thanks to those fine folks at Harlequin Books! So, if you know someone who likes them some romance books, do a good thing and point them in the direction of this blog! 🙂
Today… Spring is in the air. The birds are singing, the grass is growing, and the sun is shining!
And, I have a great Thursday Mashup for you to read!
Reviewz “N” Tips has 10 Ways To Improve Your Social Media and Blogging Workflow.
Get your bloggy, crafty and foodie links here in Thursday Mashup! Plus a giveaway or 2!
-Last week during Bloggiesta, I talked about Did You Need A Facebook Page For Your Blog and you responded- some of you were in favor, some not. If you liked the idea of having a Facebook page, the Blogger Babes have Simple Tips to Help Promote Your Facebook page.
– Looking for Spring Reads? Book Bloggers International has suggestions!
– While Rebecca @ Love At First Book did not LOVE the book WHEN THE CYPRESS WHISPERS, it is one of Katie’s @ Doing Dewey Futuristic Friday selections. After reading what Rebecca posted about it being “a light read” I’m a bit more curious to check it out!
– H2O Bungalow has a sweet Some Bunny Loves You sign made (with a free template!)
– Fresh Idea Studio has a beautiful DIY Easter wreath/Spring Wreath (gorgeous!)
– My Crafty Spot has a DIY Hexagon clock that has me doing a happy dance over the color!
– Kleinworth and Co has Toasted Coconut Brownie Torte that looks so delicious, you might just want to lick your screen! (No judgment- it crossed my mind!)
– 30 Handmade Days has an easy (did you hear me? I said EASY!) recipe for Melt In Your Mouth Cheddar Biscuits. Now, listen, there is about nothing better than sinking myMelt In teeth into a good Red Lobster biscuit- except for the drive and the fact that I always have a craving at the most inconvenient times. So, I’m def ready to try this!
– Traveling With T has BOOKS and CHOCOLATE (thanks Harlequin) to giveaway! Books and chocolate!
– Great New Books is giving away THE MOON SISTERS by Therese Walsh!
– Traveling With T has an Contemporary Romance E-book set from Harlequin to give away!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you found some cool new links to check out! If you did, I would love to hear about it!
Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,
T @ Traveling With T
Literary Friday is back! I took last Friday off because a cold had wrestled me to the ground and took away my will to blog- and with Deep South Magazine also taking a break, I was glad to have a day to rest!
