Announcement: Theme for March 1: Purple

The theme for March 1 is: PURPLE

You guys all knew it had to happen sooner or later. It’s no secret that purple is, by far, my very favorite color. More than half of my non-black wardrobe is purple, my house it purple, my car is purple, and someday maybe even the Maine Coons will be purple. ๐Ÿ˜‰ My hair and my blog used to be purple. Shockingly, this has never been a Monthly Theme before! Now that the blog is a nice antique beige, I thought we should finally pay tribute so that Purple doesn’t feel rejected. Because Purple has feelings, too!

Feature whatever you want to share, as long as it is PURPLE! It does NOT have to be an outfit post. Explore any topic that appeals to you. Whatever you choose to feature can be any shade: lavender, eggplant, berry, aubergine, lilac, etc… Any form of purple will do! ๐Ÿ™‚

Be sure to come back on March 1-3 and submit your post.

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 youโ€™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. If you don’t have a blog, post your entry on the Sophistique Noir Facebook timeline (https://www.facebook.com/SophistiqueNoir) and I will add it to Mr. Linky.

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 March 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, letโ€™s keep the posts appropriate for all ages, in terms of both language and imagery. Thanks!! ๐Ÿ™‚

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)

<a href="http://www.sophistiquenoir.com/category/monthly-themes"><img src="http://www.victoriankitty.com/blogPhotos/monthly-theme-icon.jpg" border="0"></a>

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

NON-BLOGGERS are welcome (and encouraged) to participate, also! You can post your entry on the Sophistique Noir Facebook timeline (https://www.facebook.com/SophistiqueNoir) and I will add it to Mr. Linky.

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.

    Oh this’ll be tough, I’m fairly addicted to purple… heh! I hope I can think of something before the due date.

  2. I think I can manage this one ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I don’t own a lot of purple, but I was married in a purple dress. It was a lot of fun. Can’t want to see the pics people post.

  4. PURPLE!! Oh yeah – so in! ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. Ah man! Purple? The only things I have that are purple are my creepers and my purse, and you’ve seen those a million times. Purple just isn’t my color. I’m going to sit this one out. *shrug*

  6. OMG, I’m SO in with this one ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Ooh! Purple….

    That’s my favorite color. I think I might do this theme for both of my blogs.

  8. Ack, I own very few purple clothes – my room is purple back at the family home, but here I only have a pair of purple tights! Will see if I can manage. ๐Ÿ™‚
