NoGoBlogHer Blog Hop Party

NoGoBlogHer

Next week is the big BlogHer conference and, like many of you, I’m not going. But, that doesn’t mean that we can’t have a ton of fun right from home! Stefany, my fabulous co-host from ToBeThode, 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. Stefany has 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:

  1. 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)
  2. Grab the button for the No-Go BlogHer party (it’s on my left sidebar) 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:

  1. When did you start blogging?
  2. Why did you start blogging?
  3. What is one thing you are going to do this week that is WAY cooler than going to BlogHer?
  4. 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 Stefany products for review in the past. I will have the link to her reviews in parentheses if you want to see what she thought of their products.)

Okay, here you go:

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.

Be Sociable, Share!

  1. i think i might want to get in on this Maya! I just submitted a blog for WBW, which coincidentally is the first week of August as well. But this might be fun, oh and probably bring in more traffic than the 3 readers i get now!

    You definitely should! You can post any time in the Wed. – Sat. time frame, though obviously the people who post earlier will probably get more traffic.

  2. So do i need to just answer the questions in a post on my page and then set up the link in that post, or on the actual blog? doesn’t matter either way. How would i let you know?

    On Wed. (well, very late Tues. night, however you want to look at it) I will have a linky set up here. You will click on the title of your post, which will produce the address to that particular post (like instead of http//marfmom.com, this post is http://marfmom.com/archives/2280). Then, you’ll paste that address into the Linky on my blog (or you could put it on Steph’s, it shows up both places so doesn’t matter which blog). Does that make sense?

  3. Right, i know what you’re talking about when you are referring to the address to the particular post that i make :). When you say the Linky on your blog, is it a post you’ll have set up? Also, when i make a post and add the button that you and Steph made, should i make it a link and embed your address to it? (man i have too many questions it seems like)

    Yah, I will have a post set up after midnight Tues. night/Wed. morning for you to link in, kind of like I have most Fridays for Friday Favorites. And if you can embed my address or Stef’s in the button that’d be awesome!

  4. Ticia,
    The way I set up the blog button, if you copy and paste the code, the web address for mine or Maya’s blog will already be embedded. :)

  6. HI Stopping by from SITS to say hello. Just read about your nogoBlogHop party. I am going to TRY to participate-I just need to hold this thought till I get home after a 2hour trip with 3 stops and 2 cats meowling in the car. That is after I unpack the car! Loved the baby dipper – may purchase for my daughter who is expecting #2 in a few months.
