The Beginners Guide to BrocanteHome



Hello Housekeepers! I can't tell you how very glad I am to have you here. Next week BrocanteHome will have been online for a blogging lifetime of five whole years, and oh my, the things we've seen and the places we have been together!


While those of you who have been with me since the beginning know who I am, how to get about the site and where to find the best posts, I know that BrocanteHome can be a tad bewildering for all the new visitors I have been absolutely thrilled to welcome recently (Hello Sweeties!). And so I hereby present the Beginners Guide To BrocanteHome, a step by step checklist to becoming a fully fledged member of my utterly scrumptious Vintage Housekeeping community...


1. First things first. Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Alison May and you can read all about me here, and while you are at it discover one or two of the really rather daft lists I am occasionally given to writing...

2. Next read the Vintage Housekeepers Manifesto and find out for yourself what BrocanteHome is all about...
 
3. Now subscribe (pretty please?) to BrocanteHome and have my posts delivered directly to your RSS feed. Or get really fancy and show Brocante some BlogLoving...

4. Do you have the Brocante Toolbar gracing your browser? No? Download it here and find yourself the glad recipient of direct access to all your favorite places on Brocante, some rather fabulous Vintage Housekeeping Twittery Peeps, an ever changing list of gorgeous blogs, your very own email alerts, access to your favorite social bookmarking sites including Facebook, Twitter and Kirtsy and a whole lot more besides...

5. Now it's time to tell us a little bit about you! Hop on over to The Brocante Salon and sign up. Then create a profile, link it to your blog and come join in the chatter...

6. How's about we be Tweety Pies? Follow me over on Twitter and keep up with the minutie of my life as a Vintage Housekeeping Single Mummy. It would be utterly lovely to meet you...

7. Then come sign up as a Brocantehome Facebook Fan and recieve all things Brocante directly in your Live Feed. Comment on blog posts, meet other Vintage Housekeepers and get a collection of offers and links listed exclusively for the Brocante Facebook community...

8. Now pour yourself a cup of tea and have a little browse around the really rather gorgeous (if I do say so myself!) BrocanteHome Pinboard. Add the feed to your reader and start each morning with  a hefty dose of deliciously pretty inspiration.

9. Sign up to be notified when the next Season of the Vintage Housekeepers Circle starts and while you are there view a sample or two of the Circle emails or download all of Season One right here...

10. Browse The Housekeepers Bookshelf, buy yourself something scrumptiously puttery, or download one of my Christmas Planners or collections of puttery treats from the Brocante Etsy Store.

And finally sign up to the mailing list so you don't miss the occasional Brocante Post coming soon and if you still have questions please do not hesitate to contact me and I will get back to you as soon as the chaos that is my life allows!

It doesn't seem like five years! We really need to put the brakes on this whole "Time Flies" malarky.

Congratulations on five years! I have been enjoying the blog for over two years and it is often just the thing to make me see all the loveliness in my home-making life. Thank-you Alison!

Three cheers for you -- I first started reading BrocanteHome when my daughter was a newborn (she turns five soon, like your blog!) and it inspired me TOTALLY like nothing else.

Thank you. Your influence and ideas helped mold me into my very best me. :)
