Harvest Tour of Homes 2015 Info

I am so excited about this year's Harvest Tour of Homes.  We have a great lineup of participants..... and, there's still time to get your name on the list. 

If you are participating, I wanted to give you a quick run down of how everything will ((hopefully)) go on Saturday, September 5. 

Here is how the tour should go:

1)  Create a fall related post, but make sure it showcases the ways you bring fall into your home - recipes, décor, crafts, etc.....

2)  Make the post go live before Saturday, September 5 (I would hate for you to miss a visitor if it goes live too late).  My post is scheduled to go live at midnight.

3)  Make the post the initial post on your site, so that visitors see it immediately.  If you are wanting to include posts you've created in the past, create a new post with links to the ones you'd like to showcase, so they are at least accessible from the first post on your page.

4)  Once your post is live, get ready to mingle!  On Saturday, visit Stringtown Home, and venture through the blogs that are listed.  Comment on the posts they've shared, so that they know you've stopped by.  ((The purpose of this is to not only share our great work, décor, crafting ideas, recipes, etc., but to also generate new followers and friends!))

5)  Lastly, be sure to generate interest through your followers (some may not be bloggers, and many won't be participating), so that they realize that there are more participants.  I am sharing a button below that you can add to your post.  All you need to do is copy and paste the html in the grab box, and insert it into your post.  By clicking on the button, your readers will be redirected to my blog, and will be able to see the other participants that way.

****I am thrilled about the ideas we will see!  Fall is my favorite season, and we have really awesome bloggers in the lineup.  This is sure to be a treat!!****

If you are a blogger and are interested in joining in the fun, please comment below with your email address and blog URL.  I will add your name to the list.  

Be sure to come back on Saturday, September 5 to visit these talented bloggers and see their amazing fall decor!
