Little Reminder – Blog Party at The Chicago Files August 1st!

I am really excited to be hosting my first ‘blog party’ here at The Chicago Files tomorrow morning! We’ll get started at 5:00 a.m. Central Time (10:00 a.m. GMT for those in the UK).  Everyone is invited!

Here’s an overview of the blog party:

1. Choose one of your favorite posts from your blog.  Whatever you’d like to share with the rest of us, whether it be about travel, novels, food, personal adventures, blogging, photography, etc…………. You may share up to three of your posts during the party, but please post only one at a time.  It’s best to wait awhile before sharing your second and third posts, as it will give others enough time to join in the fun!

2. Paste the link to your post in the comment section of the ‘party post’ (which will be ready at 5:00 a.m. Central Time, 10:00 a.m. GMT); if you’d like to write something about yourself or describe your blog, we’d love it!

3. Have fun! Since this is Chicago, we’ll have virtual deep-dish pizza, drinks, and you might find a Canadian dessert or two on the virtual blog food table! (I’ve got virtual Canadian butter tarts; a Canuck favorite and one of mine)!  Explore new blogs, comment on their posts, follow, reblog and share. Let other bloggers know that you met them here at this blog party!  Whether you are new to the blogging world or have been part of it for a while, this is a terrific opportunity for everyone to meet new and awesome bloggers (including them meeting you)!

Feel free to let your blogging friends know about it, too! Oh, and for those who don’t have a blog but would like to find new and amazing blogs to read, please stop by! The party will be happening all day!

I’ll be here at 5:00 a.m. Central time with the party post ready! I really hope you can stop by!!

Thanks again to dear Suzie at SuzieSpeaks for her brilliant support! If you don’t already know Suzie, you must check out her incredible blog!

    Hi Cher, good luck with the blog party.

    Apologies, but I’m hosting the Bloggers Bash party and Awards in London tomorrow, so probably am not going to be able to make your party. Have lots of fun, and I look forward to hearing all about it.

    Best wishes and hugs,

      Ah, bless you, dear Hugh! I know you will have a brilliant time and I can’t wait to hear all about it, too! Please by all means feel free to stop by any day after the party, as the post will still be up!! Big hugs, Cher xo

        Brillant! I’ll pop by on Sunday (subject to hangover!) Knowing that Suzie is going to be there, I think a hangover is guaranteed 🙂 Don’t tell her I said that!

      Those my dear are a Canadian delight! They are called, “Butter Tarts”. You see them at every Canadian party where sweets are served. They usually have either pecans or walnuts in them! They are THE BEST! Cher xo

    Cher, I’m so glad you posted this reminder! I’m going to post one from my Pussycats 3 blog. It’s about an old circus lion who was finally set free from his cage. Please let me know if the link works. 🙂


    • August 1, 2015 at 11:10 am

      There she is! Hi dear Carol and welcome to the party! Oh, I’m glad I posted the reminder, too! *LOL* Yes, thanks Carol; the link works. Bless you for such a wonderful video and post. Overwhelming, isn’t it, Carol? Cher xo

      Really loved the Pussycats 3! I could almost feel the joy in that massive beautiful creature, acting like a playful kitten! Reveling in the grass, so calm you got right up to his pads of his feet – very worn indeed! We must protect and cherish our World, there’s no “re-do’s” !!!
