Blogger Meet and Greet: Birthday Party

Blogger Meet and Greet

Welcome to our Blogger Meet and Greet Birthday Party!

This week, I am celebrating one year at Mostly Blogging. I do not consider this my blogversary since I started blogging in November of 2014. Therefore, this is my first anniversary at this site. You are all invited to celebrate Mostly Blogging‘s one year birthday with me.

In the comments section, you are encouraged to self-promote.

Introduce your blog to the other guests at the party. Tell the readers about your blog, and post a link to your favorite post, a recent post, your About page, your blog link, or anything you like.

If you are not already following Mostly Blogging, I like new subscribers too.

At today’s blog party, we are having birthday cake. Enjoy the cake and the networking.

Note: At other Meet and Greets, guests are encouraged to return and leave different links to articles in different comment boxes. You are welcome to return as often as you like and leave links.

I am hoping others will be able to find new blogs to read and new bloggers to connect with.

Guests, if you think others would enjoy the networking opportunities at the Blogger Meet and Greet, please share on your social media.  The more guests at the party, the more networking opportunities for all of us.

If you get a chance to promote the link to this party on your site, that would also be much appreciated since it would help make others aware of this blog party.

      Couldn’t resist…love that post

      For ‘geek’ related info try here…

      And just to confuse Janice ….

      Number Six: Where am I?
      Number Two: In the Village.
      Number Six: What do you want?
      Number Two: Information.
      Number Six: Whose side are you on?
      Number Two: That would be telling. We want information… information… information.
      Number Six: You won’t get it.
      Number Two: By hook or by crook, we will.
      Number Six: Who are you?
      Number Two: The new Number Two.

      Number Two: [laughs]

        Hi Gary,
        You were right. You totally confused me. I clicked the link but could not get any clarity. I’m glad you are enjoying the party and making jokes. British humor? Maybe that’s why I don’t understand.

    • Helen Fern

      Nice to meet you Kris – love the post about Dahl – one of his quotes is my favorite – and I am now following you!!

    • Janice Wald

      Hey Kris!
      So great to see you again! It’s been a long time! Sorry to disappoint, but no, I do not have any celebratory doughnuts. Maybe next time.
      You were one of my earliest readers, so it is really great that you are here celebrating one year with me. Thank you for coming.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Ellen,
      You have been such a constant supporter of my blog, it only seems fitting that you’d be at my blog’s birthday party. I couldn’t have done it without the support of people like you. Thank you for the compliments on my blog and the hearty congratulations. Thank you as well for telling us about your blog.

  1. Gary Jefferies

    Ye Gods Janice, you don’t half consume swathes of cake! But a year anniversary of mostly blogging is awesome. Pretty amazing stuff really and always useful snippets and info. Especially that last one on schedules. I’m working on that this summer.

    For those that don’t know me…hello…and those that do, I hope everything’s going well in your time zone…in fact I wish the same for those I don’t know (yet) too. I’m six months into my blog, Facebook author page, google plus and Twitting. Info can be found on my ‘About’ page which all are welcome to check out…although if you do…then be warned comment, like, follow…and I will hunt you down too ?

    To sum up, I’m currently British…pending what happens after Brexit is activated….then I might just be English…which is…hmm…rubbish idea really…modern world contracting when it should be teaching out and unifying….stupid politicos…digress…random soap box…. Yes, British, write a but too. Supernatural horror, fantasy fiction, psychological thriller type stuff and wander about here and there with mindfulness and quotes, I love quotes so I moved into here to write and waffle on a new platform with a huge readership following.

    On my own blog I’m serialising a, well, series…odd that…anywho, it’s a dabble with short stories that began to run together. Not my best writing, but concept wise it’s acted as a backdrop to other ramblings and due to feedback I’m thinking of revisiting it and turning into a manuscript proper…here’s a sample; part 4 if my aging amnesia is still functioning correctly!

    Have a great weekend all ?

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Gary,
      I had not heard of The Millionaires Digest. It sounds like where you can still write but not on your own blog. It sounds like you are doing well, getting busier as time goes on as you master new tools and platforms.
      How is your book coming? Mine is still at a standstill.

  2. Victoria Morris

    Congratulations to you! I have tweeted your link.

    I am a British teacher by day, a British foodblogger in my spare time. My blog has a wide variety of recipes that are easy to follow for cooks of all abilities.

    My slow cooker recipes tend to be the most popular recipes on my site along with the more unusual cake and bake recipes.

    Examples here:

    • Helen Fern

      Pleasure to meet you Victoria – I am also a food blogger and now following you!!

      • Janice Wald

        Hi Helen,
        I love these connections you are making! I am so glad!

    • Ismail

      I love food and I love to post about them and other beautiful things on my blogs Instagram page : 1creeknation( ever heard of it).
      Please reply with your Instagram handle.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Victoria,
      Thank you for sharing my blog party on Twitter. I am also a teacher by day and a blogger in my spare time. Thanks for coming to my blog party over the weekend.

  3. Helen Fern

    Good Morning all!! I have three blogs – and a full time job, a husband and 4 cats, so I’m pretty busy!! I’m trying to build my blogs enough that I have a small income when I retire in six years. The one I work the most is my cooking blog:

    But I also like to travel around the NW so I started this one (which is a little harder to keep up when you are too busy to wander the streets!)

    And finally – I am also a photographer – and this is the blog I’ve had the longest –

    Now off to visit some of yours and make some new friends –

    And Happy Anniverary Janice!!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Helen,
      I love photography too. I didn’t know we shared that interest. I just came from your blog. Your photography is impressive.
      Thank you for coming to wish my blog a happy one-year anniversary.

    • Janice Wald

  5. Jennifer Kelly

    Hey Janice I want to give you a huge congratulations and hug for your one year with Mostly Blogging. The amount of work and time you put into this wonderful blog truly shows through your work.

    For those of you that don’t know me my name is Jennifer (Jenn) and I am a mom of 5 in a very blended family. I write about our crazy life, deals I can pass on to you, hot topics, motivation and inspiration and so much more! And I love making quizzes! Stop by and take my Personality Quiz. I used my current psych class to formulate this one! You can find it here

    I can’t wait to meet you all. And again a huge congrats to Janice!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Jennifer,
      Thank you so much for acknowledging the time and effort I put into my blog. It will be interesting how I find the time when I return to school next week!
      Your congratulations and other kind words made me smile. Thank you!

  6. john doe

    Thank you for another great meet and greet. It seems like forever since you had one.

  7. Rena

    Janice, congratulations on this milestone. I’m also celebrating my first blogaversary and there is a shout out to you in my special post. Your blog has been a tremendous help to me. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience.


    • Janice Wald

      Hi Rena,
      We always had a lot in common. Now, we both blog and started at the same time. All these coincidences!
      I am touched and flattered that you are mentioning me in your article. Will you please send me the link after publication? I will put the shoutout on my About page and link to you. Thank you so much for the compliments. It’s always my pleasure to help. I can’t wait to read what you wrote!

  8. Veda

    EEEEEEEK 1 YEAR OF MOSTLY BLOGGING. That’s a lot of hard work! I’m so happy for you, a year is a long time and I can’t wait for my own blogiversary. Even though it’s still a couple months off.

    ANYWAYS (since I’m superb at getting off topic), I run a book blog which is partly wonderful and partly confusing because WP still surprises me and I’m still trying to catch up with all the current standards and stuff going on. Running a book blog is something really entertaining because I soon discovered that just because I have ten minutes of free time on a fateful day (on which I created my blog), I don’t always have that free time and blogging normally takes a bit longer. But it’s proving to be a legit amazing journey.

    Check me out?

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Veda,
      You mentioned concerns over free time. Many bloggers struggle with how to find time to manage their blogging tasks after blogging for years. That’s why I like to offer productivity posts. A busy home-schooling mom blogger posted on Friday about how to improve time management. Her post resonated with readers. We all can relate.
      Thanks for coming to my blog party over the weekend!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Michelle!
      Great to see you! Are you having a nice summer? I’ve been cruising.
      Thanks for the warm congratulations and for coming to my blog party over the weekend.
