2016 FAL: It's time to link up your Q1 finishes

2016 button 250 best

It's already the end of Q1 of the 2016 FAL! The 2016 FAL is now global - a community of bloggers across the world are jointly hosting the FAL. Our hosts are:
It's time to link up the projects on your 2016 Q1 FAL list that you did finish. First, a huge thank you to our fantastic sponsors:
For the 2016 FAL, we also will feature a tutorial week. Here is the schedule so you can visit them all:
The 2016 Q1 link for your finishes is now open below on my blog and on each of the hosting blogs - you only need to link on one blog for your finish to appear on each blog. Link-up "rules":

  • Add one link for each Q1 finish. If you want to link a round up post of all your finishes, use that link to enter one of your finishes and then link the rest of your finishes separately. Please, only one link per finish, as your link is an entry into the randomly drawn prize draws.

  • Please use the 2016 FAL button or the hashtag #2016FAL

  • Please ensure that the photo or blog post you link up contains a link or reference back to your original Q1 list so that we can verify your entry.

  • You have until the link closes on April 7 to link up your Q1 finishes. That means that if you want to squeak another one in at the last minute, you might have time. It also means that you have a week to get your blog posts or instagram/flickr photos ready for linking but try not to leave it to the very last minute in case of technical difficulties. 

  • Please become part of the FAL community. Check out the links of others and comment. We all need encouragement so let's applaud each other. The 2016 FAL Facebook page is here and follow us on Instagram @finishlong and tag your photos #2106FAL.

  • Our hosts will also link their finishes to share in the community, but they are not eligible for any of the prizes.

The Q1 Finishes link will stay open from now thru April 7 - link up your finishes early and if you have a last minute one, add that one later so you don't miss out. The prizes will be awarded as soon as we can verify all the entries and do the drawings. We will post the winners on each host blog. 

And don't forget to start making your Q2 FAL lists as the Q2 list link opens on April 8.
