May #MyGlobalLife Link-Up – Add Your Blog Post!

It’s the last Friday of the month, which means it’s time for the #MyGlobalLife Link-Up!

Link-ups are a great way to share your favorite globally-themed blog posts with a new audience, find new blogs, and make new connections.

To that end, please follow these guidelines.

  1. Link to this blog post in your blog post. See below.
  2. Introduce yourself in the comments. I want to meet you!
  3. Visit, “like”, share, and comment on other linked-up blog posts that catch your eye. It’s good blogging karma.

How to Link Up Your Blog Post

1. Click on the little blue “Add Your Link” button at the bottom of the post (between the images and the social media buttons). It looks like this:


2. Enter your name, blog post url & email. Be sure to link to a specific blog post.
3. Choose your blog image thumbnail.
4. Click “done”. Your image should appear with the others, but if it doesn’t it’s probably in moderation.
5. Go back to your blog post and add a link to this webpage. You can copy/paste this: “Linked to the My Global Life Link-Up at” – and put it at the top or bottom of your post (you can delete the extra text that is sometimes added after you paste it into your blog post). Like this:

  1. Hi! I’m Christy. I’ve been meandering around the world for the last decade but continually wandering back to China, a place I’ve called “home” on and off for the last decade. I’m learning to live life “in the middle” (not always waiting on the next thing) and am continually in search of new adventures.

  2. My story of my stay abroad in the late 1980s, before the fall of the Berlin Wall, is one of isolation and alienation. No one understood my search. I was living in Paris, France but staying in the Heinrich Heine House so I could learn about German culture. On the day it was announced that the Berlin Wall fell, I hadn’t even turned on the radio! There was no CNN then and of course there was no social media. My blog post link tells all.

    • Hi Lori, thanks for joining us! I can’t wait to read your blog post. I was filling out my application to be an exchange student in Germany as I watched the Berlin Wall fall on TV. I was living in Germany the following summer and was there for Reunification. It was an amazing thing to be part of. And I’m in Paris right now! 🙂

      • I need to visit Paris again. I studied at the Sorbonne from 1987 until 1995. I also added another blog post about Skyping with college students who were spending a semester in Croatia.
