Create and Celebrate Blog Party #7
Hi, Friends! Thank you for joining us for our Create and Celebrate Blog Party! This party is all about you, our party guests.
We hope you all are enjoying each other’s creative work and visiting your fellow bloggers here at the party to support and encourage each other. After all, isn’t that what bloggers do? To all of our readers (ours and all of the bloggers), we hope you are being inspired by the creativity being shared each month!
We especially want to give a round of applause to those who have linked up each and every month in our first few months!
If you are new here, Susanne and I were chatting one night thinking about how long and crazy our Blogger to do list seemed to be each week. Every single post that required photos, research, writing, designing graphics and engaging readers through social media was a true act of love and LOTS of hard work. We decided that bloggers need a pat on the back and some cheering from their peers in Blogland and decided to start Create and Celebrate to celebrate all the hard work that you do on each and every project and post.
We also started a Facebook Group and Facebook Page to share posts and give more visibility to our participants! We want to create an environment that is helpful and positive so that all our blogging friends can reach their creative and successful goals! We would love you to join us there!
Meet Your Hosts
Our Feature Blogger Of the Month
Debra Pashkowsky from Shoppe No5
Debra is an incredibly talented blogger. Her blog Shoppe No5 allows her to enjoy creative endeavors as well as sharing recipes and decorating. There is always something new and beautiful at Shoppe No5, which is the reason we chose Debra this year as Blogger Of the Month!
What inspired you to start your blog?
I retired from a job I had been at for over 23 years so I had more time to be creative. That is when I really got into Pinterest which led me to follow some blogs. In the meantime I became involved in selling the things I painted and created so the booth, Shoppe No 5 was born. The blog seemed like a natural next step.
What do you do in your spare time?
Ha Ha, I don’t think I have spare time. Seriously I love coming up with ideas to try out. But I do enjoy meeting my friends for dinner and love to read whenever I can. Plus I volunteer at Habitat for Humanity and have a part-time job. I do keep busy.
Your proudest achievement? In spite of my father dying when I was 12 and my mother after I turned 17 I went on to accomplish things in my adult life that would have made them proud.
Debra’s Favorite Recent Blog Posts!
We have really enjoyed getting to know Debra a little more and her posts are just fabulous! Make sure to drop by her blog or Facebook Page this week and congratulate her on being the Create and Celebrate Blogger of the Month!
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 lead to your original post. Please no link parties, but we will for sure share your parties on our very own FACEBOOK group and ask for it to be shared on our 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.
We love these categories but are looking for a fabulous blogger to feature next month.
Food, Design, DIY, Organizing, and Decor
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
- 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!
Both featured author and participants will be posted on our Facebook Pages and shared in social media including our Blogging Best Friend – Pinterest.
Link Up To Three Posts Each Month To Showcase Your Hard Work!
We look forward to a wonderful month of celebrating, supporting, and collaborating with old friends and new in the blogging community!
