Monday Escapes #12

We are very excited to start one more Monday with you, and it’s not just any Monday. Today, it has been 3 months since we started Monday Escapes and we couldn’t be happier with the success of this link up. Me and Ting over at My Travel Monkey would like to thank you all once again for linking up with our blog hop, we have been enjoying this journey and hope that you too.

 Just one small note… 

To all you wonderful bloggers linking up your posts – Ting and I love reading them all, and comment on each and every one of them when it’s our turn to host – but as you can imagine this is getting more and more time consuming. Not that we’re complaining of course!

However, please can we politely ask that linkers adhere to the rules we set out below as we’ve started to notice that badges are missing and comments aren’t being shared amongst not only ourselves, but other bloggers, too. We are a blog hop after all, and it would be nice for all linkers to get their fair share of interest as each and everyone one of you deserve.

What is Monday Escapes?

Monday Escapes is all about looking back a wonderful, happy travel memories and sharing them with others. It doesn’t have to be abroad or even a written post. If you want to share your favourite snapshots – whether it’s a famous site, scene, dramatic view or even a favourite family photo, then please feel free to link those up, too. Likewise, posts don’t have to be about holidays or weekends away, they can also include day trips, walks, attractions – any travel experience that you want to share.

How to join in

  • Link up to three posts – old or new – this week is over here.
  • Please make sure to include the Monday Escapes badge at the bottom of the post, on your site or a link back to the hosts – if you are having trouble figuring out how to add the badge let us know and we will help you out.
  • Posts are anything travel-related, and can include photos, reviews, days out, attractions and walks – at home or abroad.
  • Comment on posts by the co-hosts and at least two others. Blog hops only work if you share the comment love. That’s why they’re so great!
  • If you tweet us your links @my_travelmonkey and @packingsuitcase, please use #MondayEscapes and we will be sure to retweet.
  • Similarly, if you want to show off your photos on Instagram using #MondayEscapes tagging @mytravelmonkey or @packingmysuitcase, we will happily share our favourites.

We also invite you to pin and check ou what was already pinned on our Pinterest board Monday Escapes:

Follow My’s board Monday Escapes on Pinterest.

Monday Escapes will go live every week, alternating between myself and over at My Travel Monkey – and will be open for seven days. Each week, we will be giving a shout out to some of our favourite posts and photos.

Grab the badge, and if you have any trouble adding it to your post let us know and we will help you.

Happy Monday everyone!

  • Congratulations to you and Ting, Allane and thanks for hosting this blog hop! 🙂 You must put in so many hours reading everyone’s posts and organising all the admin behind it so thanks for doing all that! As a result I have definitely expanded my blog network through reading all the wonderful posts and meeting new people. I have also worked out how to do the link and have been able to add your badge each time I’ve linked up so I’m happy my technological skills are improving! On word about the Pinterest board – do I just pin a photo to your site myself or do I need to send it to you first? I have followed the My Travel Monkey Monday Escapes Pinterest board and Ting has followed mine too. I do also pin to my own Le Chic En Rose board from time to time but are we meant to just add our pins to your Pinterest board if we are adding a linked post? No big deal was just wondering! Have a great week and hopefully if I go ok timewise I’ll add another link later in the week! 🙂

    • Thank you so much dear Rosemary! Yes we spend a lot of time reading, but we are loving it. We are very happy to know that you are enjoying the link up so much, and are even improving some technical skills 😀

      As for the Pinterest, you are free to pin your posts’ photos there 😀

      I wish you a great week!!

      • Thanks Allane – looks like some more great posts again this week and so many too! 🙂

        • Thank you dear!! And your post was chosen for this week 😀 so congratulations!

          • Thanks so much Allane I’m very excited that my post got chosen – great way to start the week! Thanks to you and Ting again and have a lovely week! 🙂

          • You’re most welcome dear!
            You too, have a great week 😀
