Welcome to All About France the monthly blog linky all about France!   Simply put, this is the place to link up blog posts with a French theme.  And today is extra special as we’ve been running for 2 whole years.  Happy anniversary #AllAboutFrance!  Thank you to all the amazing bloggers who have linked up over this time, I really believe we’ve made a supportive community linked by our love/experience of (or interest in) France and I know that many regulars have made solid online relationships within this group.  I’d love to hear any anecdotes or stories about the people you’ve connected with here.  Personally I think I’ve met 6 of you in the flesh and count another 10 or so as friends even though we haven’t actually physically met, such is the nature of the blogging world and modern friendships.

I know I mentioned my business last time but times are tough on the Côte d’Azur (yes I mean it, read on…) and I’m going to remind you again about our lovely holiday rental.  Times are tough because of the ghastly attack on NIce last summer, tourism has been badly affected.  The last statistic I heard was that tourist numbers are down by 55% and we at Lou Messugo are feeling this badly.  I know regular readers and participants of this linky will not be put off travel because of one dreadful attack, so please spread the word, the Côte d’Azur needs you!  If you know of anyone thinking about a holiday in southern France, in this area, please do recommend us and of course, I’d love to host you too.  I have plenty of special offers on the go, just ask or check out our Facebook page where I regularly post them.

What is All About France?

All About France is a monthly blog linky, linking up blog posts about France.  These posts can be freshly scribbled or from your archives as a way of bringing new life to an old article.  There is no date limit and the only rule for subject matter is that it is about France in some way.  This can mean French language, French food, French style, French literature, expat life in France, French expats abroad or travel in France among other things.  The linky opens on the 1st Thursday of each month and stays open for a week.

Here’s how to join in the fun

  • You can link up one post, old or new as long as it’s about France/French.
  • Please make sure you include the All About France badge at the bottom of your post or in the sidebar of your blog, or a hyperlink back to me (the html code is below).
  • Please comment on the host’s posts and at least two others, the more the merrier.
  • Blog linkys only work if you’re generous with your comments and shares.
  • Please use the hashtag #AllAboutFrance when sharing on social media.
  • • Don’t forget you can join the Pinterest board and pin your post to it for extra exposure.
