Welcome to the 7th All About France the monthly link up all about France! If you’re a blogger and this is your first time here you might want to find out more here. If you’re simply visiting my blog for a read then I hope you enjoy all the posts about France; you’ll find plenty more here.   If you’re a regular, thank you for your support!

This will be a short post from me as I’m writing it weeks before the date, in order to schedule while I’m on holiday.  For this reason it may take me some time to get around to reading and commenting on all the posts linked up, so bear with me.  I’m sure I’m not the only person on holiday, far from home and trying to switch off for a while.  I’ll be trying to limit my social media to Instagram and very little else, so if you want to know where I am, follow me here!

A coupe of posts stood out for me last month, Thien Lan’s Top 4 Asian restaurants in Paris just cried out to me, having lived in Asia and Paris for many years.  I also loved Di’s description of her far from “sleepy village” life in sleepy villages are never boring.  Do pop over and have a read if you haven’t already.

As well as my series on far-flung France I’m now running one on local beaches and have linked up the latest today.  Please pop over and show it some love!

Finally I have something to admit to you.  I lost pretty much all the comments posted on last month’s link-up and all posts I’ve written in the past couple of months owing to an update that went horribly wrong.  I nearly lost the whole link-up but managed to manually restore it and some of the comments.  I also lost all my hits/views and SEO stats which is pretty depressing.  The issue with the update hasn’t been resolved, I had to go back to an older version and use everything that had been backed up….Here’s a big lesson to me and anyone else who’s a bit slack about backing up…DO IT!  If I had backed up more recently I wouldn’t have lost everything.  BACK UP as often as possible!  I learnt the hard way.

Bref, (as they say around here), back to this month’s link up: here’s a little reminder of how it all works and those pesky rules which are necessary to enforce in order that we all get the most out of it.

• You can link up one or two posts, old or new as long as they’re about France/French.
• Please make sure you include the All About France badge at the bottom of your post or on the sidebar, or a hyper-link back to me.
• Please comment on my post and at least two others, the more the merrier. Blog linkys only work if you’re generous with your comments and shares.
• Don’t forget I’ll RT your tweets using the hashtag #AllAboutFrance and any links copied to @FibiTee.
• And don’t forget you can pin your post to the Pinterest board for extra exposure.
