The Nuts and Bolts – IMPORTANT!

Below is a participation linky (the blue button.) Please use it to sign up and/or link up to your Monthly Motif Introduction blog post. If you don’t write a blog, link up to your Goodreads profile page, your Instagram, etc.

We’d love for you to post to social media (if you use it) using the hashtag #monthlymotifgxo.

Just before the first of each month we’ll be checking in with you and putting up a new linky for you to link your reviews for that month to. You will have until the 10th of the next month to add your link. After that the linky will be closed. You can still link up after that, you’ll just need to message me.

You can find our latest Monthly Motif post in the blog sidebar.

Thanks for joining and have fun!
