So, Monday August 1st is my Birthday and to celebrate I thought I would take a little idea from Karen's blog and have a birthday party cook out!
Here's how it works. If you're a follower on my blog, (if not, join now!) you make a comment, say what food you're bringing to the cook out, what you blog about, and invite people to come visit you. Then you go visit at least 3 new blogs, leave a comment and follow if you like it. Hopefully everyone will find a whole lot more than 3 they want to visit and follow. It's a fun way to find new blogs and get new followers. The more you comment & follow, the more commenters and followers you'll get. When I participated in Karen's blog party, my follower count practically doubled in 24 hours. It's a great opportunity to expand for new bloggers. For those of us who have been around awhile and might even be getting a little bored with it, it can provide a new lease on our blogging life.
To prepare for the party, you might want to spiff things up, like focus on your platform, make sure your font is easy to read, that you have an interesting bio and post to attract comments and followers. I plan on doing a bit of remodeling on mine, actually looking forward to an excuse to change a few things. In fact, I already started by changing profile photos.
The Cook out begins Monday and ends Friday with a new recipe and review!
Again, here's how it works:
* Be a follower here
* Mention in your comment what food you'll bring, what you blog about and any other pertinent info you'd like to share
* Go to at least 3 new blogs of commenters and say hi. Follow if you like it
* I'll check the comments all weekend, visit as many as I can, and follow if I'm not already.
Sound like fun? I think so! Okay, then, see you on Friday!
