FLYTIP: Introduction and Invitation

IT'S NO SECRET that I’m a designer who likes to play at being a book reviewer. Over the course of blogging at FLYLēF, I’ve had the pleasure to answer many friends’ blogging questions. I’m not sure how it happened but somehow my design life has surreptitiously spilled over into my reviewing life. Thanks to my inquisitive friends, and after much percolation, I’ve decided to launch FLYTIP, a bi-weekly feature/meme to share blog design graphics and advices, as well as encourage related discussions. I’d love for you to join the fun!

 

WHAT: FLYTIP is a bi-weekly meme featuring (1) question and answer, or (2) create and share prompts with a design and artistic focus. There are three key elements:

Design posts for me to share blog design graphics and advices. Any graphics that I offer through FLYTIP is of my original design and are absolutely free for you to use. Though, if you could mention that "Graphics from FLYTIP, an original feature by Lonna @ FLYLēF," I’d much appreciate it.
Discussion posts to chat about bloggish or bookish topics from a creative point of view.
Link-up parties to connect all participants. I will also join you in creating bi-weekly posts. At the end of my posts, I will have a link-up for you to add your own post so that I, and others, can visit.

WHEN: FLYTIP’s first prompt begins on Saturday, March 4th 2017, and will continue every other Saturday thereafter.

HOW: You’re cordially invited to participate by creating a post every other Saturday, or as often as you’d like. Participate by following these suggested guidelines:

Check out the FLYTIP Prompts Schedule (keep scrolling). If a prompt interests you, share your thoughts in a blog post published on the day that topic is scheduled.
Include the FLYTIP graphic
Link back to your host: Lonna @ FLYLēF
Add your post to the link-up!
Explore, create, and most importantly, have loads of FUN!

 

I know many of us prefer to plan ahead, so I’ve planned an advance prompts schedule. Sprinkled throughout the schedule are Open Topics in which you can discuss anything of a bloggish or bookish nature from a creative point of view. I will use the Open Topics to present how-to lessons, share digital goodies, or just surprise you. I can’t wait to see your posts!
