It's a Blog Party!

You may recall that 12 x 12 in 2012 members marked the halfway point of our challenge last year by doing a blog party. We laughed, we cried, and we promised we’d come back at the end of the year to REALLY kick off our shoes.

Believe it or not, the end of the year is nigh, and we’ve designated December 12 as the kickoff to the blog party. That’s right — 12/12/12. It’s not the end of the world, people! It’s just the end of (this year’s) 12 x 12. And if it IS the end of the world, we’re not going to go down without a party!!

From December 12-15, you are invited to share your joys, frustrations, moments of inspiration or any other reflections of 12 x 12 on your own blog.

You may also recall that I promised a music video to go along with the “You Gotta Write” lyrics I wrote for the halfway party. I’ve been hard at work humiliating myself putting that together for you. I invite you, too, to go all out and party hard. Afterward, it will be time to clean up the place in time to welcome newcomers for 2013. Let’s show ’em what we’re made of!!

The 12 x 12 Blog Party will begin at 12:01 Mountain Standard time on December 12th, when my own post goes live. The Linky List will be included in that post.

To participate, all you have to do is:

  1. Write a post celebrating (or lamenting) the end of the 12 x 12 challenge.
  2. Include the link to your post on the Linky List that will be available on my December 12th blog post.
  3. Please use the fancy-schmancy image (above – top left), originally designed by Linda Silvestri that I feebly doctored to make a Blog Party badge for us.  Please paste the fancy-schmancy badge on your blog post with this link embedded:

Please note the link will not work until my December 12th post goes live.

So, are you ready to party serious??? If so, don your party hat and put on your dancing shoes!
