A few weeks ago Suzanne and I started chatting about how crazy our TO DO list was as bloggers. We were amazed at all the hard work that, so many bloggers put in each week just to brighten readers days here in the United States and around the World! It is crazy how much work goes into a simple recipe or a craft and oh boy don’t get me started on DIY posts and those “How To Do Something In 30 Days” series that teach use new tasks and help us have cleaner homes and slimmer waistlines. These posts are hard work and bloggers who create them all deserve their day in the SPOTLIGHT! So we are inviting you all to participate in Create and Celebrate A Blog Party That Rocks! #1 today!
Create and Celebrate The Nuts and Bolts
Each month we will gather and post our best link(s) of the month. These links will need to be lead to your original post. Please no link parties, but we will for sure share your link parties on our very own FACEBOOK page. 🙂 . We want to create a place where we don’t just drive by and dump our links, but hang out and meet new bloggers, join our Facebook Page, hang out at a meet and greet on our Facebook Group!
- These are the categories for March:
Home and Garden, Arts and Crafts, Recipes, Organizing, Health and Beauty, Seasonal (right now we are in Late Winter, Early Spring)
- We will choose a feature author/blogger/creative on the 20th of each month, along with other categories. We want to celebrate lots of talent.
- The category featured bloggers will have their post of the month featured along with two more posts of their choice, complete with the best photo possible, all linked back to your blog with a bonus fun button to place on your website or to print and put in your blogging scrapbook. ( I am sure you have one right?)
- The featured author will receive the following via Email or Facebook Message asking for:
- Three to five favorite posts,
- A favorite photo or two in addition to photos of your blog posts
- A short biography about you and your AWESOME blog,
- Two to three questions about blogging
- Two fun questions about you to allow your current readers and new readers to get to know you better! ( You will have a feature page!)
