Blog, not blag, your way into a Party!

Uncategorized By Sep 05, 2010 8 Comments

The Nut Press is at a BBQ Blog Party this Labor Day Weekend (it’s a holiday in the US, hence the spelling!) If you’re dropping by, hello there!

Squizzey and I baked some peanut cookies and a coffee and walnut cake (okay, so we bought the cake but we did actually make the cookies with our own fair paws) and they are truly scrumptious. I just hope they survive the trip and we don’t arrive at the party empty-pawed.

We’re hopping all the way over to Karen Gowen’s lovely blog Coming Down the Mountain: From Reclusive Writer to Published Author. She’s running a BBQ Blog Party over the four-day weekend, giving bloggers a chance to find new blogs to read and meet the bloggers who run them. All you have to do is comment on and/or follow the blogs of some of her party guests to get you started.

If you want to join in, hop over to Karen’s blog and follow it (right after you’ve followed this one and Squizzey’s SquizzBlog, of course!) Here’s how it works:

* Follow Karen’s blog
* Comment on the party post on Karen’s blog telling her what food you’ll bring to the BBQ, and say something about yourself and your blog
* Find at least three new party-goers to visit, comment on their blogs and follow if you like
* Click on the twitter and/or facebook icons at the bottom of the party post on Karen’s blog to invite more people to the party. That means more followers for everyone!

Really simple and a fun way to get to know other bloggers all over the world.

Are you coming? Okay, Squizzey and I’ll see you there. Hurry up before all the peanut cookies and cake are gone!

    Oooh I went and hung out at Karen’s party too and visited some new bloggers. So much fun! Wish I had loads of time so I could visit blogs more frequently.

    1. kath says:

      Yes, need more time! I visited some blogs on Saturday, couldn’t yesterday but hope to get to some more today before the party winds down. It’s been fun checking out some new blogs and bloggers that I might not have found otherwise.
