Here's how it works :
If you have a blog, please write a short post mentioning and linking to three or so independent businesses that you follow, buy from or just plain admire. You can of course link to your own business if you want to. Its all about building up the links to help people find our businesses.
Leave a comment below with a link to your blog so we can all pop over and take a look. It would be really great if you would link back to this post and if you want grab the badge code.
Tweet about the independent businesses you are supporting and mentioning the hashtag #IndependentsDay
Link or share this or your own post on Facebook
You don't have to be an independent business to get involved or have a blog. Comments, tweets and facebook mentions will all help enormously.
Here are just a few of the many great independent businesses I have come across. I will be featuring more each month so if you want to get involved please leave a comment below so I can find you.
