Heeeere's the Blog Strut!

The Blog Strut

Welcome to the Blog Strut

Thank you so much for stopping by this week’s Blog Strut – Peacock Style #14!

Our Linky Parties are always rule-free!

There are a set of guidelines below but they are just that, guidelines!

We want you to post what you want, share what you want, and not have to do anything in return but share the bloggy love!

Pin It

We encourage you to Pin the posts of the bloggers before and after you!

We understand that there may be a lot of entries so just pick a few of your favorites and pin them!

Are you pinning it right?

The host (My Personal Accent) will pin all of the entries.

That’s right, all of the entries. We feel that everyone deserves the traffic and exposure.

That is why you are linking up, right?

We found pinning to be more effective than commenting on entries.

By pinning your posts you will be guaranteed more exposure through all of our followers and their followers on Pinterest!
