Welcome to my "Grow Your Blog" party!!

Welcome to my very first international blogging event!  I'm just truly so very excited to be hosting this "party" and to have so many of you participate.  As of this posting there are almost 400 blogs here -- all for the purpose of meeting new people and "growing" their blogs!





For those of you who do not know me~~




I'm a yarn obsessed knitter of "nests". I'm  passionate about beautiful yarns and I love to "play" and create with them.  My blog is about my knitting creations~ my knitted nests and also my various knitting projects.  My husband and I love to travel -- so I also share photos and stories of our travels with my readers.
 
My blogging family means the world to me.  Those of you who take the time to comment here~ are truly precious,and I try -- although I'm not always timely -- to visit your blogs in return. 
~~~~~
This Blogging event is my gift to all of you.  Blogging has truly changed my life and opened up a whole new world of opportunity for me.  I've made cherished friends all over the world and have learned so much from all of you about SO many things.  I am truly a better person for having met all of you and for participating in the blogging world.  I want you all to have these same experiences - to make new friends -- have new opportunities -- and to have a reason and desire to "grow your blogs". 
Please enjoy your visits with the many blogs listed below. This list will not go away - this post will remain active and I will have a link on my sidebar to this particular post.  So - there is no great rush -- you have - basically "forever" to make your visits and make new friends.  Please note -- all contests will close on February 1 - and the winners will be announced then.  You can find my giveaway at the end of this post~ 

 I will be visiting all of your blogs so  that I can get to know you and learn why you love blogging. With almost 400 blogs here - it is obviously going to take me a little while.  But I promise -- I will be there sooner ~~ or later!  Thank you all for particpating - I can't wait to meet you! xoxo

***UPDATE 1/23--- we began this party with over 400 blogs - but after 3 days I deleted those blogs who clearly were not intending to participate -- those that did not do a special post for the party and those that had not posted in days -- and those that were not participating but were misusing this opportunity for their own purposes (!!).  I want this to be fair to everyone -- so those that are here now are here because they want to grow and to meet new readers and followers.  Enjoy!!  xoxo~

Less than 50 followers





51-100 Followers





101-200 Followers





More than 200 Followers


~~ after the closing date of January 15  -- I still had over 50 emails and comments from blogs that I sadly just could not work into the listings here.  I have worked hours and hours (and hours and hours) typing all of the blogs in to the lists and I only just finished shortly before this post was published. I'm just so sorry :(       Hopefully those of you who missed out will watch for the announcement info next year and make the entry in time to participate.)  If I had more than 2 hands -- this would not have been a problem~     

My Giveaway--



Everyone who leaves a comment on this post will be entered to win
one dozen of these fabulous cookies baked by my friends at ButterBlossoms.  These cookies will be mailed directly for their ovens to YOUR house.  The winner will be announced HERE on February 1.  Please make sure that your comment includes your email or blog so that I can reach you if you are the winner!

*** Winner Update*** February 1, 2013
Sharon from the blog Seaside Stitcher is the winner of the cookies.  Congrats to Sharon - please contact me with your mailing address.
THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED***

~~
It takes a village so they say~~
     and that surely is the case here - with me attempting to host my very first blogging event! This has been all consuming and a LOT of work -- but I sincerely wanted to do this for all of you:)
Some of my dearest blogging friends have stepped up to help me with this all amazing project--
~A special thanks to my friend Silke who helped me with this post. Silke spent several hours checking each and every link to make sure that all of your blogs were linked correctly -- you know how important that is!! 

~And a huge thanks also to my friend Karen Valentine who has supported and cheered me on in my undertaking of this project. Karen adapted my blog so that each of the links would open on their own,making it easier for you to visit all of the blogs listed here. Truly -- I am nothing without my friends~  

~~~~~ 
Coming up next -- a beautiful post showcasing all of those Pink Scarves that so many of you have generously donated!!! I can hardly wait to share these with you -- they are so very special!
For those of you who would like more info about my Pink Scarf Project -- you can find it here.
xoxo,
Vicki

Dear Vicki,
tried to email you but your link won't work. I'm sorry to say that I won't be able to attend the party after all. I came down with intestinal flu and I've been so out of it that I couldn't prepare my post. I am so glad I got to meet you. Thank you.

Hi all. My name is Sue from the UK. Very new to this blogging thing. But determined to master the in's and out's of blogging. Was introduced to this event by my very dear friend Cheryl whom met whilst playing WWF. I guess in "In the Old Days" we would be called pen pals.

LuAnn Braley said...

I found you through the "What Happens at Grandma's" blog, which I found through the 4th Let's Get Social Sunday link-up! So I think that makes us like 2nd bloggy cousins or once-removed or something like that.

Thank you so much for hosting an international event like this. I recently started following some blogs in languages other than my first, and between what I know and online translation, it's really not so difficult!

And thank you for being a neo-natal nurse. My daughter was born 8 wks early at 3 lbs .4 oz and the care she received in the NICU for her 3 weeks there was AWESOME! Her 10th birthday is in about 2 weeks.

Sorry this comment is so long, but when my husband was trying to explain how little our girl was to his father, he said, "Dad, if she was a carp, you'd have to throw her back!"

Elisabet said...

Hi Vicki, I may have already left you a message to thank you for such a fabulous idea having this blog party! The work you put into it has been a very good deed indeed...OK, I've been on the Internet to long now... LOL! I am on my second full day happily hopping from blog to blog and I have lots of new friends for which I have to thank you for!
Hugs,

I just found your link through the blog party. I love your pink scarf project , I have a sister who is battling cancer. My niece is a cancer specialist and I am going to share your idea with her, she ia also a photographer and has special shoots with the ladies that are battling cancer. The ladies may not have their hair but their beauty,strength and courage shines forth . I'm thinking she needs to include a pink scarf in her photo shoots. Thanks for caring!

Librarian said...

Thank you so much for including me in the list! I can imagine how many hours and hours (and hours and hours) of work that was!

And I have to confess I never posted my own blog party post... I did not forget about it, even had the date when I meant to write that special post put in my diary, but I had a house guest for four days over that same weekend. It seemed so impolite to leave him to his own devices while I would retreat to my computer, so that post was never written.

Can I still sign up to be included in your giveaway?
My email address is destinyauthor@googlemail.com.

Vicki,
This Grow Your Blog party is so awesome! I know you did an amazing amount of work pulling this together. Just going through the list of bloggers and visiting takes a lot of time, so I can't even imagine how much time you invested. I just want you to know your efforts are very much appreciated. This is a perfect venue for me. I have already met quite a few new blogging friends.

Blessings,
Fay

Birgit said...

Vicki,

First of all, a BIG thanks for your lovely and most welcome email. It was such a surprise that you offered to include me in your blog event even though I would have been late. That was so very much appreciated, yet I didn't have enough time to write the post with which I would have been happy. Anyway, since your event is such a success, odds are good that it will be repeated (hint, hint). So next time I would love to participate.

It's obvious that you put not only a lot of time into the organization, but also a lot of heart and soul. Thanks for that -- you rock!

I am looking forward to visiting your blog in future -- and once again kudos to you.

Hugs,
your new friend from Munich, Germany,
Birgit

I just herd about this from Sherry at No Minimalist Here, but I guess I am too late. Maybe you will do this again. I am VERY computer illerate but LOVE blogging, just don't know how to make it grow and even how to do things to change the look, etc. XO, Pinky

Countrylovers said...

Liebe Vicki,
was für eine zauberhafte Idee und was für ein zauberhaftes Foto hast du von dir eingestellt, wie eine englische Lady vor ihrem Cottage schaust du aus, bezaubernd. Die Blog Party habe ich leider verpaßt, aber aufgeschoben ist nicht aufgehoben. Dafür habe ich aber schon angefangen an meinem Beitrag zu deinem Pink Scarf Project zu arbeiten, es sieht so aus, als würde es ein ganz besonderer Schal für eine ganz besondere Dame.

Alles Liebe schickt dir die Babsi

Bruna Aguiar Melo said...

I had some unexpected events at the beginning of January and didn't get to participate. I'm disappointed about that but it's going to be fun to visit all the participating bloggers.

The cookies look like they'd melt in your mouth. Thank you for taking on such a project. I'm sure so many will benefit from your efforts.

Blessings,
LesleyAnn

Hugs to you my dear friend...

Much love and many warm hugs,

Thank you for updating and cleaning up the list. It was a little disappointing when I started visiting blogs that had old posts, or something not intended for the Grow Your Blog party. I did not keep reading because it was taking too much time to sift thru, but I will go back now and visit the blogs. Thank you for hosting this. I have not had many new followers, but it's been nice to find new blogs. Thank you for all of the time and effort you put into this party.

Hello sweet Vicki
I have just returned here and see that my comment was never published -
Oh never mind! But I did need to tell you how very grateful I am personally to you sweetie for all the huge effort you have invested in trying to encourage bloggers in growing their blog in whatever their aspirations are!
You, as I have said before, are a shining star to whom we look up to.
You are one of a kind and I am so really happy to have you in my life as a blogging friend.
Congratulations dear friend your rewards will be great and I can see they already are!
Much love,
Suzy

Vicki: For some reason, my comment didn't publish either. I just wanted to thank you again for your selfless generosity. This has been a fantastic party. I have more than doubled by followers (from 30 to 68 so far) and I am thrilled with that. I'm so glad there are people in the world like you. -Derrith S.

Thanks for organizing this blog party Vicki.

I am still "travelling through Blogcountry" (your list) and enjoy the blogs and many lovely nature photo's.
But I still need some days to see it all.

Kind regards from YokkoBears

Hi Vicki - I just wanted to let you know I've closed my Mystic Spirit Shop blog in the list above, I just didn't have the passion for writing it...

I've just started afresh yesterday, as I do love writing and blogging and can now be found at http://gentlewanderings.blogspot.co.uk/

Just wanted to let you now so that you could take the Mysticssirtshop.blogspot.co.uk down if you wanted. No need to replace as I know that is only more work for you.

I'm going to revisit all the blogs above anyhow and say hi! Such lovely work from everyone and thank you so much for letting me participate in this event earlier in the year.
