The Weekly Linky: My Favorite FREE Product Contest!

This week I invite you to link-up your very best or most favorite FREE product. The product can be from your Teachers Pay Teachers store or exclusive to your blog. Doesn't matter! Please make sure you link-up one, and only one product, however. This time, we are downloading, leaving feedback and voting on each other's products! You will come back June 1-3 to cast your vote for your favorite product(s). Here is the best part, not only will we get downloads, feedback and possibly new followers but the winner (the product with the most votes at the end of this linky party) will be featured on one of next month's Weekly Linkies! Not only will the winning product and author receive top billing, they will also receive a button for their blog shown here to the left! You'll want to sign up for my email updates so you'll know if you are the winner! An email will go out on June 4th with the announcement. This is the only way to find out if you have won (I don't want to hog up the question area of your TPT stores or use them for any other reason than they were intended) so please, CLICK HERE and enter your email address to subscribe! The winner will also be announced on this website in another post. 
This link-up offers a ton of opportunities to get more traffic to our stores and blogs as well as helping us gain more feedback and possible followers. To ensure we are getting the most out of this link-up and to keep things fair, please review the rules of our linky parties here.
