I am not going to New York City next week for BlogHer and I know many of you aren’t going either. But, that doesn’t mean that we can’t have a ton of fun right from home! Maya, my lovely co-host from Musings of a Marfan Mom, and I are going to hold a No-Go BlogHer party just for all of you that are sitting at home next week with us. I have been working to get some great giveaway prizes for you and we are so excited to be able to give you some swag simply for playing along with our party.
This is going to be easy. We want you to meet and greet bloggers just as if you were at BlogHer. We are going to give you a set of questions to answer and post on your own blog. All we ask is that you complete the following two requirements:
- Answer the questions on your blog and then link up that post in the linky that will be available on both ToBeThode or Musings of a Marfan Mom. (you only need to link up once)
- Grab the button for the No-Go BlogHer party and place it on your sidebar during the duration of the party. (If you have any problems doing that, let us know and we would be glad to help).
Easy peasy, right? We thought so!
Here are the questions we want you to answer:
- When did you start blogging?
- Why did you start blogging?
- What is one thing you are going to do this week that is WAY cooler than going to BlogHer?
- Share a post that you think says a lot about you or is your favorite. (share the link in YOUR post so we all can see)
Once you post on your own blog, come back on Wednesday (or anytime through Saturday) and link up. Then, start hopping around and meet some other bloggers. Leave some comments, follow some new blogs if you are so inclined, and just have some fun.
You want to know about prizes, right? This is just a quick list of sponsors (we will be more specific on the linky post of what you will actually win and give you the sponsors website). If there are any additional prizes, you will see them when you come to link up!
(A lot of these fantastic sponsors have offered me products for review in the past. I will have the link to my reviews in parentheses if you want to see what I thought of their products.)
Okay, here you go:
- Zhu Zhu Pet Hamsters (review)
- Baby Banz (review)
- Safety Tats (review)
- Smart Knit KIDS (review)
- Baby Dipper (review)
- Fibers.com (review)
- Kidz Gear
- Mabel’s Labels
- Beibi Shoes
- Sleepy Wrap (review)
Those are the ones that we have full confirmation on at this point! These are some fun prizes that everyone can enjoy. Canadians are welcome to play along because many of those sponsors will ship to Canada!
What do we want you to do now? Start thinking about those questions. Get your posts ready for next week. Grab the button off our sidebar and post it on your blog. Start spreading the word. If you are on Twitter, use the hashtag #NoGoBlogHer to talk about the blog hop. And, finally… get ready to have some fun!!!
note: To be eligible to win prizes, you will need to complete the two requirements stated above.
