This is all in the early stages of planning so please have patience with me while I come up with the Mood Board and other things for the Blog Hop.  If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail Lori at mulchlady6@gmail.com and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

The Blog Hop will take place the first week in February ~ the 1st through the 7th 2020.  Why February?  Because February is Turner Syndrome Awareness Month!  With over two million females affected by ST we have to bring awareness to this random chromosomal disorder.

If anyone knows of a die or stamp company that would like to be a Sponsor for the Blog Hop please let me know.  Commenters and Card Designers will be eligible for prizes.  But our main focus for this Blog Hop is to bring Awareness of Turner Syndrome and how it affects Girls and Women throughout their lifetime!

Thank you all for taking part in this Blog Hop!  I really can't express how this touches my heart!  My goal is to get the Medical Field to do more research on the lifelong medical issues for TS Girls and Women!



Here is an update on my daughter, Julie, since the first blog hop Julie has had a Breath Test done to see if she has SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth) which is a medical condition in which a person has an unusually large population of bacterial overgrowth and this overgrowth can cause bloating, diarrhea and pain.  Julie tested positive, she was given a course of strong antibiotics but unfortunately still suffers from these issues.  Her diet has been changed to limit carbohydrates intake to prevent bacteria from growing but she is still having issues and from talking to other parents of TS girls IBS, Crohn's Disease and Celiac Disease are common.  Julie has been tested for all of them and  comes up negative.  The doctors really don't have answers.  So this is why more research needs to be done!!

Thanks for participating!!

How To Create a Permalink for the Inlinkz Tool

Hi, Everyone!
This is a directive to the Design Team.
In order to use the Inlinkz Tool (curtesy of Darlene Pavlic) we must use Permalinks. These are the URL addresses that will be active in the future.
They are NOT the same thing as your blog's home address.


A Permalink allows visitors to go directly to your blog POST.
These are the steps for obtaining your permalink in a Blogger blog.

Go to your Blogger draft.

On the draft-side (aka "back side") of your blog,
create a title that says TURNER SYNDROME AWARENESS BLOG HOP.

On the right side bar under the options for PUBLISH - SAVE - PREVIEW - CLOSE
you will see an orange phrase called POST SETTINGS.
Beneath it are:
Labels
Schedule
Permalink
Location
Options

to obtain a permalink:

1. SCHEDULE your advance date and time in the schedule section.

2. Click on the PUBLISH orange option at top (above post settings)

3a. Click PERMALINK. (under Post Settings)



3b) The Permalink is visible in gray.

4) Using Copy-and-Paste technique copy your link.


5) Close your page (top right).

6a) Go to the Inlinkz here.

6b) Go to the next available spot at the Inlinkz Tool and add your name and PASTE the permalink you copied from your blog:

7) Choose the option to obtain a photo from YOUR COMPUTER.

Finish your upload, and now your specific address will be available for the Blog Hop, and your photo is in the Inlinkz.

Thank you for participating!
