FLYTIP: Second Half Year Prompts & Giveaway

WELCOME TO FLYTIP, an original feature hosted here at FLYLēF to share blog design graphics and advices, as well as encourage related discussions. The topic for Saturday, August 5th, is "FLYTIP: Open Topic || Discuss anything bloggish or bookish from a creative point of view." Open Topics are slots I've created to present how-to lessons, share digital goodies, or just surprise you. Today, I'd like to do a mid-year update.

Design is my craft, but books are my passion. Since FLYTIP's inception in March 2017, I've had so much fun sharing graphic treats and reading posts that many of YOU have created for this feature. For the second half of this year, there are many things to share with you:

Survey: I have a simple survey to help improve this feature (see The Discussion section below). You're thoughts are very valuable and I'd love to hear them!
Guest Prompts: I'm thrilled to unveil the new prompts. I've invited amazing blogging friends to submit prompts, which I'm excited to tackle.
Giveaway: I also love giving back to my readers, so check out the exclusive FLYTIP giveaway found at the end of this post.

 

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.

I'd love to see your post! Add your link so that I, and others, can visit. Links that do not directly go to your FLYTIP post will be removed. Submissions end after 30 days.

 

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!

NOTE: The first half year prompts contain many downloadable graphic goodies. Head over to FLYTIP: Introduction and Invitation to view the discussion archive.
