The Chicago Files Holiday Blog Party – Next Saturday, December 12th!

Blog Holiday Party Poster

Just a little reminder that The Chicago Files Holiday Blog Party will be held right here at the ‘ol blog next Saturday, DECEMBER 12th!  It’s extremely important to me that everyone be included, so I’m going to get the festive mood started at 5:00 a.m. Central Time, which is 10:00 a.m. GMT if I’m not mistaken (for my lovely UK bloggers, please correct me if I’m wrong)!

The blog party we had a few months ago was fantastic! I was absolutely thrilled that so many were able to join in the fun!   Here are the details for next’s week party so you are ready to put on your holiday party shoes:

 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 this post; if you’d like to write something about yourself or describe your blog, we’d love it!

3. Have fun! There’s a virtual food and drink table with lots of Chicago deep-dish pizza and Canadian/American holiday desserts! Explore new blogs, comment on their posts, follow, reblog and share. Let other bloggers know that you met them here at The Chicago Files 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)!

4.  There will be some surprises too!

I am very excited to host (my second blog party, but my first holiday blog party!) and I hope you can join us!

    lol You are making it hard. I have something of a surprise to post on my blog on the 15th that is in the Christmas spirit. The rest of my poetry doesn’t lend itself to a Christmas theme.

      Oh it doesn’t have to be Christmas-themed at all, my dear! Tell you what; why don’t you pick some of your favorite posts, and then the ‘surprise on your post for the 15th can be put on the party post that day! I don’t mind at all! Cher xo

    By the way, if anyone knows how to get rid of, “” I would really appreciate the assistance! That link keeps showing up every time someone makes a comment or I reply to a comment (it doesn’t show up on this page per se; however, it shows up when I’m in admin to reply to the comments). Is anyone else experiencing this issue? I don’t use ‘’. Thanks muchly! Cher xo

    Have a great party. I can’t cope with any extra traffic, so I shall only be there in spirit. If you and friends want a warm and hilarious night out, go to Strawdog Theatre’s Robin Hood and Maid Marion (

      Hi Horty! Good morning to you my dear! The post is going to stay up, actually! The summer blog party had people posting even up to a week later which is great! The other thing I just thought of is I’d be happy to post your links by proxy! If you would email them to me I could tell everyone these are from you and you weren’t able to make the party! What do you think? Hugs, Cher xo

        Ok …. First I have to figure which ones I want. Then I’ll need the email address. I will be back home on 12/16 … another option, maybe that won’t be too late? Please advise.

        I found that at the party in the summer, people were posting even a week later, so if you’d like to wait Horty, that is totally fine! If you decide you’d like me to post them for you, my email addy is: Hugs, Cher xo
