We're Having a Linky Party: Post the link to one of your blog posts

Jill Williamson is a chocolate loving, daydreaming, creator of kingdoms. She writes weird books for teens in lots of weird genres like, fantasy (Blood of Kings trilogy), science fiction (Replication), and dystopian (The Safe Lands trilogy). Find Jill on FacebookTwitterPinterest, or on her author website.

As my last act of love for Love an Author month, I'd like us to try having a Linky Party.

What is a Linky Party, you ask? I will tell you.

A Linky Party is when the author of a blog hosts an invite on that blog for the readers to link up blog posts. These are usually for posts on the same topic. I thought it would be fun for us to link a post from our own blogs. Whichever post you like. One that you are particularly proud of. Or one that you think might be helpful to the Go Teen Writers community.



Since this is a blog for teens, I set the system so that I will approve all links, just to make sure no one spams us. So you won't see your link appear until I approve it. You will have until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, March 1, to enter your link. Then come back and click on each other's links and read each other's posts.

Have fun!

  3. Wow, this is a great idea! I was traveling during most of February so I haven't been keeping up with GTW, but I look forward to catching up on what you've been doing around here! :)

    1. Hope you had fun traveling! These aren't GTW blog links, though, Aidyl. These are links that the GTW's readers will enter. Things from each of your own blogs that you want to share with the group.

  5. Oh, Jill, I love this linky idea and what you have been doing for Love an Author month! It's really important to be generous with social media, and I've been taking this to heart by following some authors I love and using my platform to help them out. Thank-you for all you do here!

  10. I accidentally entered twice, because I didn't realize at first that we were suppose to link up a certain blogpost and not just our blog. So, you can ignore my first entry :)
