Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop 08.07.11

What a fantastic day it is because you came! Thank you. Welcome to our 19th week of CBPH where we get to showoff our creativity and hop on to different blogs to meet exceptional bloggers :)

I'm totally awed to have Andie Jaye from Crayon Freckles as a co-host. She has a series called in {her} shoes where bloggers share their experiences as moms - the challenges, the joys, and other things that only moms can understand and cherish. Not only that, she also hosts a blog party called Tip-toe Thru Tuesday and you are more than welcome to join in.

Blog Tip
The question is: How do you get the custom message instead of it just saying "xx comments" that I am stuck with? Kim answered this in her post HOW TO: Creative Comments Title.

Favorite Blog
You clicked, inlinkz tallied. The readers' favorite blog post this past week out of 242 links, being the most viewed post, is Nancy's 10 pretty bathroom features. Other blogs have featured it and I even mentioned it on my Recognition Day Thursday, thus, making it now the most popular bath post in blogland.


Our Party
To the main course of this post.
For those of you joining us for the first time, we only have 2 easy, simple rules:

1) Link up your creative post - can be a DIY project, decor, photography, crafts, recipes, poem, thrift finds, link party, or that informative syndicated post that can make us laugh, or cry - in short, whatever you're proud of! And if you like to link more creative posts, go for it! We'd love to see them :) (No links to businesses or giveaways. We have another party for these exclusively every Tuesday called Market Your Biz & Giveaways at 5 pm, PST.)

2) Follow as many blogs as you desire, preferably starting first with the one who linked before you and after you, before branching out, and let them know by leaving a comment. (Following me and the co-host will be very much appreciated, and we definitely follow back. Just let us know you're following.)

Displaying the party button on your blog, while optional, is very much appreciated :) It will help you remember to come back and link up to the the happiest blog party on the block (cough...cough...cough)

Link opens up every Sunday at 5:00 pm, PST and ends Friday at 11:59 pm.

Because I like something different, I'm using the reverse entry for inlinkz - so the most recent participant will show up as number 1, thus giving everybody a chance to have the #1 spot.

Friends, go ahead and get to know each :) One followed blogger is one gained friend. And please, don't forget to join my Market Your Biz and Giveaways blog party every Tuesday at 5 pm, PST. It's your chance for free promotion of your family-friendly business and giveaways.

Burning question: What's the most memorable SPAMmy comment you ever received?

One comment that's really hysterical for me was this, "An informative blog covering the Auto Industry on all aspects including car reviews." I blog about my DIY and crafting projects, with occasional mention of my family, who would have thought that I'm a car maven?

I love reading your comments. I may or may not respond to all of your comments since blogging is not my full-time job but please know how grateful I am for taking time to share your thoughts.
