you’re invited!

HOSTED BY: Casey, Nicole, Lauren, Alycia, and Ashlee

Last years, Blogging Party was such a hit that this year we wanted to make it extra special.
So after some collaboration with some fellow bloggers, we decided a Valentine’s Day Party would be a great way to do it.
Each blogger who wants to participate will be randomly paired up with another blogger to do a gift exchange with! All packages must be shipped out so they can arrive to the other bloggers destination BEFORE February 7th.
Then on February 7, 2013 we will all post about the other blogger we received a package from, and about the care package they sent us!
So where does the party part come in? Well you can all then link up the post you wrote onto one of the five hosts’ blogs. The link party will be interlined between all five bloggers for one giant link up party!
The care package can be full of whatever you want to give! But we suggest keeping it simple, and would like to put a $10-$15 price cap on these packages. Just make it something small and fun, that you know would make another person’s day. Who doesn’t love getting something in the mail?
Try to get to know the other blogger, and send them something that will put a smile on their face. Maybe something to help them accomplish one of their New Year’s resolutions, or something only another blogger would appreciate? Be creative! If you are having trouble thinking of something, you can always e-mail one of us for some suggestions.
So how will this work?
Any blogger who wants to participate will e-mail Nicole their name and blog address.
Each blogger will be randomly paired up with another blogger, and will receive that blogger’s e-mail and web address.
It is then up to those bloggers to give each other their shipping address, so they can send each other a little care package! (try and get to know your new blogging friends!)
Make sure to ship out your care packages by an appropriate date, so that the other person will get their package BEFORE February 7, 2013.
Then make sure to write up a post about the person you met, and what they sent you! &Don’t forget to link it up to ALL FIVE of the blog Hosts, to spread the love and meet tons of new bloggers!
Hope we can all meet some new people in the blog world, spread smiles with some gift giving, and spread some blogging love for 2013!

**Must be at least 18 to participate, thank you for understanding**

    Hey! I emailed you – just to be clear, I will post the link-up button once I get my partner ?? Or now? I am confused!

    I so wish that I could participate, but I'll be traveling in Dubai that week 🙁

    I can't wait to see how it turns out, what a great opportunity!

  4. 1.12.13

    That's a great idea! I wonder if it's okay to participate outside US? I would be interested in taking part, but I'm from Europe, so I'm not sure would everyone be so excited to have to ship overseas.

      I was looking for that too! I'm also from Europe… Hope there are more? Then we can have a little European Valentine party as well 🙂

    • 1.14.13

      That would be so much fun Sabrina! Maybe we should email the one who takes the registrations and ask, if there's enough Europeans to make a continental spin-off? Or just do it by ourselves! 😀

    Does anyone know when we should receive notice that we've been paired with another blog?

      I'm wondering the same thing! Makes me feel better that other people havent heard yet, either!

    Is it too late to join in? I sent an e-mail but haven't gotten a response yet. When will we receive the notice that we have been paired? As a new blogger, I am anxious and excited! I am hoping that this will give me the push I need to start blogging on a more regular basis!
