It’s a BLOG BASH and YOU’RE Invited!

Filed under: Blog Bash, My 1st Blogoversary

This month I’m celebrating my 1st blogoversary! I can’t believe it’s already been a year – so much has happened here on The Momalog in just one year! (I’ll write all about the adventures of The Momalog’s 1st year in another post this month.)

I’m teaming up with one of my all-time favorite bloggers and friends, the fabulous Alison of Mama Wants This (who is also celebrating her 1st blogoversary)!

Announcing Alison’s and Ado’s 1st Blogoversary Blog Bash!

But what is this? What does it all mean?

Alison & Ado’s Blog Bash is an online celebration! It’s a link up were you stop on by to link up your favorite post of all time. It’s that easy!

Your post can be fresh off the presses, or so old it’s fossilized. New or old. We don’t mind – just as long as it’s one of your favorite posts ever.

Alison and I will read each and every linked-up post (just make sure if you are excavating an old post that you leave your comments open so you can get some comment love!).

What to Do

  • Mark your calendars: Blog Bash happens March 26 – 30th. You can link up anytime during that time period.
  • Grab the Blog Bash button code from my sidebar (or from Alison’s) and add our cool button to your post (it was designed by the famous Erica of Yeah Write fame – how cool is that??!).
  • Write a brief intro telling us why it’s your favorite, or write a new post with your old post below it, as an update. Any way you like it, we’ll read it!
  • Please spread the word for us – Tweet your friends, Facebook ‘em, email them, stalk ‘em, run through the streets like the Town Crier announcing our Blog Bash. Why? Because the more the merrier, and we’ve got fabulous prizes!

Ado and Alison’s Fabulous Prizes

We have 5 fantastic sponsors who will be giving five lucky linkers* one of the following prizes:

  • Lauren Nicole Gifts, who specializes in beautiful hand stamped silver jewelry, is sponsoring one gorgeous footprint necklace, which you can customize with your baby’s footprint.

  6. Congrats to you and Alison! What a fun idea! I love the concept of everyone choosing the all-time-favorite post, instead of limiting it to recent stuff.

  14. Anyways time to explain why I linked the post I did. It’s actually a recent post of mine. For anyone who doesn’t read my blog I blog daily. The title is called “The Elephant in the Room.” This is one of my favorite posts because I finally convinced myself to air out everything I didn’t like about my pregnancy, my insecurities, and some reasoning behind my PPD. I may only have 3 comments on the entry but every one of them have been supportive. It’s nice to know there are other women out there who feel the same as me because I have felt alone in my thinking for a very long time.
