Welcome to All About France the monthly blog linky all about France!   Simply put, it links up blog posts with a French theme.  Readers, this means you have a wide range of stories about France to enjoy and bloggers, this means you have a place to highlight anything you’ve written about France or French.  And today is extra special as we are celebrating a birthday….

#AllAboutFrance is ONE!  Yay!  This linky has been running for a whole year, I know it’s definitely a sign of age, but I’m going to say it anyway…where did that year go?  However, rather than get all concerned about how fast time flies (I must be having fun, right?) I thought I’d take a look back over the past year and let you in on a few facts and figures. I love statistics!

In total 489 posts have been linked up by 106 different bloggers living in 14 different countries – France, UK, USA, Australia, Germany, Holland, Mauritius, Norway, Switzerland, Qatar, Morocco, Czech Republic, Sweden and Mayotte (technically not a separate country from France but too exotic not to mention).  It’s possible there are other countries which I didn’t notice so please shout if I missed you out!

4 wonderful blogs have joined in every time, Eco-Gites of Lenault, What Up Swags? and Oui in France (who has a reader survey she’d love you to fill in if you’re a regular reader). You are champions, merci mille fois!  Another 10 only missed a couple and you too are worthy of a shout out: Curious Rambler, Reflections Enroute, La Cité des Vents, French Village Diaries, Simply Sara Travels, Our French Oasis, Vaucluse Dreamer, Gone Girl Gallic, Le Jardin Perdu and The Old Duck.

Thank you all so much for your loyalty, I’ve loved reading your blogs and getting to know you over the last 12 months.  And of course I also hugely appreciate every single other blog who links up with the occasional post about France, all 92 of you!  Thank you and here’s to continuing the fun in the second year.

Back to today and the linky: don’t forget there are some rules.  You can link up 1 or 2 posts, old or new but please don’t just link and run, and please don’t forget to link back to me. As with all blog link-ups it works best when everybody reads, comments on and shares as many of the other posts linked up as possible (please, try for 2 as a minimum).  Don’t forget I like comments on my linked posts and here too!

Feel free to use the hashtag #AllAboutFrance when sharing on social media as this gets us all seen even more – I will retweet tweets using it or if you mention me (@FibiTee). Don’t forget the Pinterest group board too which you can pin your post to for extra exposure.  Full details of the link-up can be found here. As always it’ll be open for a whole week so you have time to get involved!
