Thankyou italytutto for all the sterling work you do towards keeping the wonderful community of Italy Bloggers connected with each other, of which this weekly list is just one example.


  1. That's really nice, LindyLou! It's good to feel part of a community when you're abroad.

  2. Well done, LindyLou. I love the insight that your blog gives to living in Italy. You're always so positive and generous. I think the Italian tourist board should be employing you!!

    Every time I come here, it makes me want to move there!!

    A quick question about your button - will you let me know where the image you've chosen for your button is stored? e.g. photobucket? Once I know that, it's easy to give you the html you need.


  3. Well done you!! Those photos of the storm were amazing, so you deserve to be on that list.

  4. Congrats! You are always on my Top Ten List of Favorite Bloggers!

  5. Certainly well deserved Linda.
