And I'm not writing this post about Facebook. I'm reeling myself in from a possible rant so that I can hook you with what I'm really here to announce. (Why oh why, the fishing imagery?)
From the beginning Janane and I have envisioned building a community of moms around us. Moms who forgot who they once were before offspring. We can't go back to life as a singleton freewheelin' through the world--and I don't think any of us would want to do that--but we want to take a moment to remember who we are at the core. What makes us who we are at our best. Being a parent is a mighty calling--but it can drain a mom, or dad.
Just ask Janene, all of her kids have been sick this week!
So we want to mix it up a bit. And all of you are INVITED!
Welcome to The More Than Mommies Mixer: a blog hop designed to meet and greet and fill the net with
We will meet here every Friday for a low pressure hop, a place to see and be seen!
There will fun and prizes. Prizes you say? Yes prizes. If you have hopped before, you know that there are perks to being a hostess (everyone follows you, wants to talk to you, be you--no?). We want to pass on those perks to all of you.
We are opening up two hostess spots each week as a sort of Door Prize, if you will. More details on how you can "snag" one of those spots in a bit. (Please just let me go with the fishing stuff...I can't stop.)
Each Friday you can come here to link up your blog, a post you love, your Twitter account, Facebook page, or Pinterest board. Follow our hostesses and the blog before you and then mix and mingle with the rest of the bloggers linking up--comment, share, and follow--make new friends, connect with your old ones. It will be rockin'!
To make The More Than Mommies Mixer the very best that it can be we need your help.
We want you to link up, but we also want you to spread the word. The image of handing out flyers on street corners comes to mind (Isn't that a scene in every 80's movie that has a party in it?). Well here is your stack of flyers --
What's in it for you?
Well, anyone that tweets in the upcoming week using the hash tag #MTMMixer or shares this post on Facebook or Pinterest will go into a drawing to become our "LIFE of the PARTY" hostess for next Friday. If you want all eyes on you for our very first mixer than share, share, share! We will be watching the Twitter Feed, Facebook Threads, and Pinterest Boards, but you can also leave us a comment letting us know that you shared!
We will be opening up the link next Thursday Evening, November 1st --and this will be your next chance to get one of those hostess spots. If you arrive early to the party (link up before 7 a.m. on Friday) we will randomly select a blogger to be our "Mixologist" hostess for the week.
Keep your eyes on our Facebook Page for more details--we are working on a personal invite that you can share with all your friends!
Christine and Janene
