Theme for September 1: Someone Special

The theme for September 1 is: SOMEONE SPECIAL *

This month’s brilliant theme was suggested by GothBarbie of Military Fashion Show. It’s always fun when bloggers include special companions in a post. Someone Special could be your spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend, best friend, sibling, mother, or even a pet or doll. Heck, I’d even accept your imaginary friend, because we’re all about loosely interpreting the rules around here. 😉

* This does not have to be a romantic partner, or even a living person, or even a human. Just a companion of some kind who is important to you.

Be sure to come back on September 1 and submit your post.

Please note that the HTML for the icon has changed (see below) due to my new blog format. The old code will still work, but just in case, please use the new code from here on out. For those of you who had trouble with the code last month, I have fixed it and tested it repeatedly in Blogger so you should be good to go with the code below. Be sure to paste it in while in HTML mode.

How It Works

On the first day of each month, I will post my theme post with the Mr. Linky sign-up form at the bottom. You can link to any post you’ve done that day or previously, as long as it matches the theme. Be sure to add the icon to your post, and link your post to mine using the Mr. Linky box at the bottom.

You can post your theme post earlier than the first of the month, or link to an old post, but you must add it to Mr. Linky on my first post of the month. I will leave the Linky open until 11:59 PM PST on September 3, so everyone has three full days to post.

You don’t have to participate every single month. Feel free to join in whenever you wish. Just be sure you get your post linked before the third day of the month!

You don’t have to do outfit posts. Post on whatever type of subject matter you like, as long as it is related to the theme.

Also, let’s keep the posts appropriate for all ages, in terms of both language and imagery. Thanks!! 🙂

Posts that are linked up without including the icon will be removed from Mr. Linky.

HTML for the icon: (The icon and the HTML will remain the same each month)

Be sure to paste the code in while in HTML mode.

Please pass this invitation on to any bloggers you know who might be interested, and feel free to share the announcement on your blogs. Of course, it’s a good idea to follow my blog to be sure you don’t miss any of the themes. 😉

Questions? E-mail me!

Want to Suggest a Theme?

Leave a comment on any post at any time, or e-mail me. If I use your suggestion, I will credit you on my theme post for that month and in the theme announcement the week before. No promises that I will use every suggestion, because the themes have to be things that I would be able to do a post about.

Want to participate in the Monthly Theme?

Here’s how:

  1. Add the Monthly Theme icon to your blog post (copy the code below and paste into your post using the Edit HTML feature):
    <a href="http://www.sophistiquenoir.com/category/monthly-themes"><img src="http://www.victoriankitty.com/blogPhotos/monthly-theme-icon.jpg" border="0"></a>
  2. Paste the URL to your post using the Mister Linky box at the bottom of my April 1 post.
    Please use a direct link to your relevant post, NOT a link to your blog’s home page.
  3. Visit all of the other participants who have entered, and show them you appreciate their theme posts!
