Your Dishing It! Party Topic

Hello, Blogland!

I had a nice Spring "Break." There were a few parts that were not so nice, like breaking up fights between a 4 year old and a 2 year old over a Barbie dressed like a stripper; but for the most part it was nice to have a short bloggy break.

I wanted to remind everyone that the very first Dishing It! party is coming up this Wednesday. Everyone who links up (with a valid link!) will get an extra entry in Thursday's Sponsor Giveaway! And who knows?? I might just add a little surprise something myself! {wink}

One of my favorite things ever is having a girlfriend over for coffee and dishing over anything and everything. That's what Dishing It! is going to be all about: getting to know other bloggers.

Dishing It! will be a new monthly party--my way of getting bloggers together to chat about a common topic. I'll post a topic today, and ask everyone to link up and hop around Wednesday and Thursday, after the party goes live. I think it will be a fun way for us to get to know other bloggers. 

The community aspect of blogging is so important! I found many of my favorite blogs and blog friends through participating in blog parties and leaving comments.

With that in mind, here is our first topic. 

I want to know about your blog!

~How long have you been blogging?
~Why did you start blogging?
~Tell me about your blog's title. Why did you choose it?
~What do you blog about?
~What is your favorite thing about blogging?
~If you had to choose one famous person to become your blog's next devoted reader, who would you pick?
~What's the funniest comment you've ever received on a blog post?

Please feel free to use this as a question and answer post, or use it as a loose guide to write your post however you like. Add or omit any questions you like!

All I ask is that you link back to me at the specific party post, which will go up on Tuesday night; and that you take the time to visit at least 2 or 3 other blogs on the list. If you need a few days before you know you'll have a chance to visit some of the other links, that's okay, but a blog party doesn't work unless participants join in the party. (You can read my Manifesto on Blog Parties if you're not sure what I'm talking about.)

Here's the code for the cutesy new party button. I'd love it if you'd copy and paste the code into the "Edit Html" tab on your blog post so it will show up when you hit "publish."


I hope you'll come by and link up on April 14th! (And as a side note, I know that 5 Minutes for Mom is hosting an Ultimate Blog Party that you could also link to because their theme fits with mine.)

I'll be back later this afternoon with some Thrifty Treasures!

  1. Thanks for the reminder! I'll start thinking about it, and link up on Wednesday!

  2. I am definitely planning to participate! It should be a lot of fun.

  3. What exactly do you mean by pasting the code into the "Edit Html" tab? I write my posts using Windows Live Writer, so maybe this is why I don't know what to do. I did manage to use the code to put the button on my sidebar.

  4. Can't wait to dish! I need something like this to get back in the swing of things!

  5. Really looking forward to this! I love being able to meet new friends!

  6. Sounds like fun! Not exactly sure how it works though, but I'm going to give it a shot. Sounds like I write a post answering the questions & but your button on the post. How do I "Link" - just by adding your blog as a link? And where will I be able to read other party go-ers responses? I'm sure I'll figure it out!

  7. It's wonderful that you are getting thoughts from this article as well as
    from our discussion made at this time.
