Coffee Talk Sharing The Love

Gin & Lemonade’s 6K Blog Party!

13th July 2018

Happy Friday, groovy people!

I promised you a blog party when I reached 6,000 readers here at Gin & Lemonade.

And so, overnight I seem to have ticked over to 6,003.

Lorna business card frontThank you!

That means we party!

Please leave a link to your blog and fave social media hangout in the comments so we can mix and mingle.

Introduce yourself, talk to each other and check out other people’s blogs.

You might find your new best blog friend!

Before you leave a link, please do one of these three things:

Subscribe to Gin & Lemonade posts as they are published.  (sidebar)

Subscribe to Gin & Lemonade’s weekly newsletter here. (also in sidebar under ‘Newsletter’)

Join my FB group Blogging & A Beverage – must be a blogger and not a troll.

It would be groovy if you did all three, but I like to give people options!

Also, share this post with your friends and blogging networks.

Be nice and have fun!

Lorna

P.S. Next post will be a road-trip to the circus.
