Anybody want to party? Would you like to make new blogging friends? Mark your calendars for January 25, 2014 and make plans to join me and LOTS of other bloggers from around the world for this incredible opportunity to increase the readership of your blogs and also to increase your followers!
Last year over 400 bloggers participated in this event-- and you are ALL invited to this winter's party! This could be the perfect event to help us all with the winter doldrums! When it's freezing outside and the snow is flying everywhere-- just snuggle in where it's warm and spend some time making new friends~~
We need some guidelines for everyone to follow
so here they are~
1.Everyone who has a blog is invited --
this is an international event.
Wherever you live~you are invited to party with us.
2. Please share the beautiful party badge
(created by my friend Karen Valentine)
with your own blogging friends.
3. Prizes ---
the choice is yours
to give away prizes or not.
4. Please publish your blog post
late on the evening of January 24 --
that way it will be ready for those on the other side of the world
who wake up before us.
Some suggestions for making this a great and fun
experience for us all~
After the party begins, I will wait 24 hours and then begin to visit the blogs-- those that do not have a specific "GROW YOUR BLOG" post, will have to be deleted from the lists. (I'm so sorry-- but I want this to be fair to everyone.) So please do remember the date.
*****UPDATE JANUARY 15,2014---
We now have over 500 blogs entered in the GYB event. (I have tyled in blogs until my little fingers are stubby!) Please understand that I can not leave a comment on every blog to say that you are loaded in for the party. If you have left a comment here on this post ---- you ARE loaded in for the party. When the party date arrives -- if your blog is not listed -- email me, I can quickly fix it -- but if you left all of the requirred info on your comment -- you are already now loaded in for the party! Wow -- 500 -- can you even believe it???
*****UPDATE JANUARY 24, 2014
I have completed the post for the party. If you left a comment here with your info --- link to your blog and your follower info --- than, rest assured you have been included for the party. With now almost 600 blogs participating -- I am sorry, but I simply cannot come to each of your blogs and leave a comment here stating that you have been entered. Comment #596 is the last blog to be included in the event. The cut off date was January 15 --- but I have worked very, very hard to include those of you who have entered at the last minute. I am now ready for tomorrow --- bring on the party!!
This photo was taken while on that journey. A beautiful barn, sitting by the side of the road, inviting me to come and visit. You can see the rest of the barn photos in the "Pink Scarf Project" finale. The final posts have been divided into 3 parts -- so many scarves - I could not put them into just one or two posts! Watch for the first of the scarves to appear here in mid November~
Your compassion for the "Pink Scarf Project" has been nothing short of amazing. Together, you all have helped to make this great big world~ a whole lot smaller, bringing us all together with your love and support for women braving breast cancer.
My "Grow Your Blog" event is, once again, my gift to you all. A chance for you to expand your circle of friends, making your own personal world a bit smaller and filling it with new friendships and opportunities. Blogging has changed my life and opened doors that I never thought possible. This is my way of opening those doors for you all~
