Monday Social
is a social gathering of friends where we connect with others by visiting them 
on 
Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, or a Blog.  

That's right, you do not have to write a blog to participate in Monday Social.
You can also link photos from Instagram, Facebook, or Pinterest.

Find the addresses for your friends' sites, and 
link your addresses for friends to find. 

*****

Each Sunday at 4:00 p.m. party goers link up photos from one of four sites, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and/or a Blog.  

Old-fashioned socials were held on/in lawns, porches, parlors, churches... where friends mixed, mingled, and shared their lives... and exchanged their calling cards that gave their names and contact information. 

Monday Social is a 21st century social where we exchange our calling cards (link our URL addresses) for Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and a Blog.

The hostess this week is 

Katie Mansfield from Let's Add Sprinkles



I've been doing some putzing around the house in anticipation of an early spring here in Texas.


I was also thrilled to share news of my retirement.
I don't exactly know what the next chapter will hold for me but I am excited to find out.


Thanks for joining us for Monday Social.
We had a wonderful time visiting your links last week.
Let me discuss some of the other social media platforms for a minute.
In this day of cross branding, multiple media platforms are essential.
I hope that by linking to Monday Social you gain followers to your Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest accounts.
Make sure your settings aren't set to private.
Just a quick tip for Facebook.
Make sure you grab the URL for the specific Facebook post not your general Facebook page.
Same is true for Pinterest.
Please make sure it is your own photo and not a photo that is copyright protected.
I hope that helps.
Feel free to message one of us if you have questions.

Let's get to the features.
