Girls vs Globe Linkup #1

If there’s one thing you all know about me, having read my blog or followed me on social media, it’s that I love a fun party with friends. 

The problem is that many of my friends live very far away. I’ve met so many incredible ladies through this blog and the ‘Girls vs Globe’ group but meeting in person isn’t always an option.

So I figured it would be fun to meet here every month and share our best stories of the month with one another. If you’re a blogger post your favourite thing you’ve written in the linkup below.

If you don’t have a blog, join the conversation by commenting below and telling me about your biggest accomplishments this month.

The world can seem a little glum sometimes, so let’s spread the love and positivity! Let this be a reminder of how far you’ve come in the space of thirty odd days… you rock!

December on the blog

This month on the blog has been all about reflecting on 2015. I wrote a post about the reasons why you should visit Levi this winter – and yes, that reindeer is one of them. If you do decide to go, don’t forget to read my tips to stay warm and stylish this winter as it gets pretty chilly above the Arctic circle!

I also talked a lot about Instagram – I put together a list of my most popular Instagram photos of the year, the best photography apps for Instagrammers and the most stylish female travellers to follow on Instagram. Have you seen them yet?

On top of that I ran an awesome giveaway (now closed) where I gave away a Fujifilm Instax Camera and lots of Marco Polo guides – congratulations to all the winners!

But that wasn’t even the best part. The best part was seeing myself in the cinema! While waiting to watch the ‘Hunger Games’ the ad for my #EYD2015 trip with the European Commission suddenly came on and I felt like the coolest person ever for all of 20 seconds.

Oh, and my post about the most magical places in the Scottish Highlands was also featured by the Lonely Planet! What a month it’s been – I’m so excited to see what 2016 has in store for me…

  • Ok I think I did it correctly:) Let me know if I didn’t please- this is my first Link up!:)

  • I love the idea of a linkup! Thanks for doing this! And that Reindeer is so adorable!

  • This is my first link up, but I love the idea! If I didn’t do it correctly, please let me know!

  • I tried to share the post on FB from the link and got an error message saying bad parameter?

    • Oh yeah, I’m getting the same error message. Will look into it now, thanks so much for bringing it to my attention!!! <3

  • Heather Hanselmann

    I tried to add the linkup pic but it isn’t working anywhere I put it whether in my CSS sheet or on the post itself. I am excited to have a link up to join again as the last one I did ended.

  • Great idea! Just added my link, looking forward to joining in each month 🙂

  • Crazy travelista

    I just did it and the picture doesn’t show up in my post. I tried several times. Not sure but it seems like others had some troubles with the pic as well.

  • I wasn’t able to get the pic showing with the HTML code, but I saved the pic and added it to my WP’s media library and then put it to my sidebar linking to this post. Hope that’s ok!

    This is such an amazing idea, Sabina! I love it how you’re always supporting other bloggers too.

  • So happy to be part of the linkup! And of the Girls vs Globe group! Lots of great articles, you rock guys!

    • I found a way to fix it! I just downloaded your image and put it in the blog since HTML was not working! But thanks for this great opportunity and spreading a little love in the travel blogger community:)!

    • So sorry about the image issue – you can get the HTML code for the banner here: http://pastebin.com/Mur3ULMz and for the button here: http://pastebin.com/D8y3Mhe6 🙂 Please put either of those into your post or sidebar! <3
