June 2010 - What's on This Month

June or juni in Dutch, is the month that falls after mei (May) and before juli (July). As you'll notice, the Dutch don't capitalize the months of the year. This also holds true for the days of the week (maandag, dinsdag, woensdag, donderdag, vrijdag, zaterdag, and zondag).

Here is a list of what's going on in the Netherlands in juni 2010!

What's on in the Month of June?
May 2010 saw the successful completion of National Blog Posting Month for Clogs and Tulips: An American in Holland. Lots of interesting and informative topics were covered and loads of excellent, thoughtful, and insightful comments were made by readers. I also participated in my very first Secret Post Club and got a fantastic package filled with beautiful handmade treasures from MissSearles that I'll include in a post later this month. Clogs and Tulips also took part in a Blog Jog that was very prosperous and lots of fun. Last, but certainly not least, Clogs and Tulips was named one of the top 100 lifestyle blogs by The Daily Reviewer.

The month of June also has a lot of exciting things in store for Clogs and Tulips. Next week, I launch the Tiptoe Through the Tulips interview series. Thanks to those of you who volunteered to take part. If you are interested in tiptoeing through the tulips with other Clogs and Tulips readers, please send an email to with "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" in the subject line. It's also Cabinet Elections in the Netherlands - a very exciting time that I will be taking you on a journey through with a series devoted to Tweede Kamer Verkiezingen and the Dutch government.

Speaking of elections, don't forget to vote in the latest poll "Which party are you planning to vote for during the June 2010 elections in The Netherlands?" If you are unable to vote in the Netherlands, take this chance to make known who you would vote for if you could. Or you can just chose the "ineligible to vote" option. Vote early and vote often, as they say!

That I have! Hopefully June will be a little slower. Thanks!

As dorky as it sounds, I can't wait to hear about the elections. I don't know much about the Dutch political system and such, so, can't wait to get an overview. Thanks again for taking the time to share with us!

I'm not going to be here for June but I did get an e-mail about a world music festival in Tilburg on the 18th-20th. The site is in Dutch but the lady who told us about it was raving about how fun it was so I thought I'd pass it along too!

Habebi - I myself have been having loads of fun learning about it! I'll be providing lots of helpful links and stuff too. The first post will be up tomorrow!

Mub - Brilliant! Sounds cool - I'll add it to the list :) Thanks!
