I created a hashtag on Twubs called #LinkYourLife. You can join the Twub here, or employ the tag on Twitter. Use it to share work or moments that best capture who you are. I want to know who you are. Let’s meet up every Friday to link our lives, share each other’s work, and form more lasting social media connections. Online connections can be glancing. Let’s get personal.
What you should link:
- Who you are, what you do, and a piece of work that you feel best represents you (blog, publication, poem, story, etc.).
- Work by others that you believe best captures who they are, or pieces by others that speak to your own life experience. Tell why.
- Non-pornographic images that capture a moment in your life.
- Work from friends.
#LinkYourLife is about giving a deeper reading to the work shared, so share choose the piece that is most important to you that day or week. Our group has grown significantly. Let’s be sure we share the space. It’s fine to repost your chosen link throughout the day to be sure we all have a chance to see it.
Looking for even more connection? You can:
- Follow others using the #LinkYourLife hashtag. Say hi. They are seriously the nicest group ever.
- Join the Facebook group #LinkYourLife Connection and share there throughout the week. This group is a safe, supportive, noncompetitive space for artists, survivors, advocates and allies. We host regular challenges, linkups and exchanges.
- Check out the #LinkYourLife Pinterest board.
- Tag @FridayLYL for added retweets.

Be sure to retweet generously, but the goal of this hashtag share is to read and discover, so read work first. Get to know your Twitter community. Take your connections further than an RT. Link your lives off the page.
