Create and Celebrate Blog Party #4
Hey there! Thank you for joining us for our 4th Create and Celebrate Blog Party! This party is all about you, our party guests.
We hope you all are enjoying each other’s creative work and visiting your fellow bloggers here at the party to support and encourage each other. After all, isn’t that what bloggers do? To all of our readers (ours and all of the bloggers), we hope you are being inspired by the creativity being shared each month!
We especially want to give a round of applause to those who have linked up each and every month in our first three months!
If you are new here, Pam and I were chatting one night thinking about how long and crazy our Blogger to do list seemed to be each week. Every single post that required photos, research, writing, designing graphics and engaging readers through social media was a true act of love and LOTS of hard work. We decided that bloggers need a pat on the back and some cheering from their peers in Blogland and decided to start Create and Celebrate to celebrate all the hard work that you do on each and every project and post.
We also started a Facebook Group and Facebook Page to share posts and give more visibility to our participants! We want to create an environment that is helpful and positive so that all our blogging friends can reach their creative and successful goals! We would love you to join us there!
Meet Your Hosts
On To Our Features of the Month
FEATURE BLOGGER OF THE MONTH!
Meet Linda from Life On Summerhill
About Linda’s blog. Life on Summerhill offers readers creativity and inspiration design ideas for creating a home.
What inspired you to start your blog? Inspiration to start Life on Summerhill came from my niece Tracy who blogs for The Uncoordinated Mommy. She encouraged me for years because she thought I could help so many people with their interior decorating through the internet. After creating my site I soon was hooked and absolutely love helping people and being creative through social media and blog posts.
What do you do in your spare time? In my spare time I love to travel to Disney with my family and cruises to the Carribean. I am also a volunteer in the youth ministry at our church and love going for walks to refresh my mind every morning and evening. It’s also a great time to listen to a podcast about blogging.
What is something fun or unique about you that your readers do not know? Even though it is on my website I think it is pretty unique that we have a rabbit named Eugene that roams around the house with our cat Stinkerbelle.
What is your favorite food and/or beverage? Why do you love it? Many people don’t know that I have a gluten and dairy allergy so believe it or not my favorite food is pizza. There are so many ways you can prepare a pizza. It can be breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert.

Create and Celebrate The Nuts, and Bolts
Each month we will gather and post our best link(s) of the month. These links will need to lead to your original post. Please no link parties, but we will for sure share your link parties on our very own FACEBOOK group and ask for it to be shared on our Facebook Page!. We want to create a place where we don’t just drive by and dump our links, but hang out and meet new bloggers.
These are the categories for June:
Lifestyle, Design and Decorating, Foodies, Parenting/Family, and Seasonal (Mother’s Day, Late Spring and Summer). We will choose a feature author/blogger/creative on the 20th of each month, along with other categories. We want to celebrate lots of talent.
The category featured bloggers will have their post(s) of the month featured along with two more posts of their choice, complete with the best photo possible, all linked back to your blog.
- The featured author will receive the following via Email or Facebook Message asking for:
- Three to five favorite posts,
- A favorite photo or two in addition to photos of your blog posts
- Two to three questions about blogging
- Two fun questions about you to allow your current readers and new readers to get to know you better!
Both featured author and category winners will be posted on our Facebook Pages, our personal blog pages, and shared in social media including our Blogging Best Friend – Pinterest.
Link Up To Three Posts Each Month To Showcase Your Hard Work!
We look forward to a wonderful month of celebrating, supporting, and collaborating with old friends and new in the blogging community!
Now let’s party!!
