Meet and Greet 12: New Year’s Party

By: | January 2, 2016 | Tags: , ,

Welcome to My 12th Blogger Meet and Greet!

Meet and Greet for BloggersEnjoy yourself at our virtual New Year’s party!

Happy New Year!

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.

Then, network with the bloggers who have commented before you. They all came to meet new bloggers. Go to their blogs, introduce yourself, and let them know how you found them.

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

Blogger Meet and Greet Food #food

At today’s Meet and Greet we are having New Year’s cake.

Blogger Meet and Drink

To drink, help yourself to anything on the bar counter. Pour yourself your favorite beverage in the empty glass.

Enjoy the cake, the beverages, and the networking.

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

I hold these opportunities for bloggers to network twice a month.

Guests, if you think others would enjoy the networking opportunities at the Blogger Meet and Greet, please share.  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 and give us all more exposure.

    Happy New Year Janice,

    I have been following your blog but this will be the first meet and greet party that I am attending at your end.
    I wish you the very best of 2016.
    I will attach my clicky linky below. I will briefly describe my blog as a vibrant, interactive pot-pourri of inspirational posts, short stories, non-fiction, poetry, photographs etc. This is my about page and links to my recent post.

    Well let me go see what others are up to.

    Hi Janice,
    Happy New Year! So this is my second meet and greet.

    This is the link to my latest post where I have stated the guidelines for guest posting.

    Link to my about me page where I have included links for my top posts such as “what is truly Jihad?” and “Why I am Malala is not a disappointment”

    For my poetry

    I hope you would enjoy reading them and I hope to meet new bloggers too.

    Hi, Janice! Happy New Year! I’m glad to be here among everyone and check out their writings.

    Hello, everyone.
    I write two blogs. My main blog, Bringing Back the Rubies, is about energy work and shamanism, and I’ve used it to share my experiences with healing trauma through shamanism and energy work. This year, I’ve also resolved to start a healing business, and I’m excited to expand on this through different platforms. My most recent post is a Year in Review, highlighting some of the most-viewed posts on the page for this year. Check it out here:

    My second blog is Rubies and Sagebrush, where I write music/book/product reviews, opinion pieces, essays, and fiction. I try to do a freewrite on Fridays, although that sometimes doesn’t happen because, you know, kids…:) I really enjoy writing fiction and creating characters, and recently, I’ve discovered I really enjoy writing reviews, too! One of my earliest posts there is a post about baking and how I’ve begun to enjoy cooking and baking a lot more. Check it out here:

    Happy New Year, everyone. Best wishes for 2016.

    • Tanushree | at 9:14 am

      It’s so amazing that you’re writing not one but two blogs, that too such great blogs! I really admire that. Also I could really relate to your post (on Baking).

      • Juana | at 10:53 am

        Hi, Tanushree!

        Thank you so much for the compliment. Two blogs just sort of happened, it was just something that grew over time. Thank you, again.

        I really have been enjoying learning more about food, cooking, and baking over the past year or so. I’ve started to see cooking in a new light, and it’s inspiring to get to know other people who have transformed, as well, through being in the kitchen.

        Thanks, again. I really like the look and feel of your blog, also. I used to work with children before I had children of my own. (I have about 16 years of experience with kids, but only about 5 of those years are teaching in childcare centers; the rest are nannying and babysitting/helping with friends and families’ kids.)

        I’m looking forward to seeing your posts!

        Happy New Year.

    Hello, Janice.

    Thank you for the opportunity to network and find new blogs. My blog is kind of niche-less, and it seems to work for me to leave things open. We’ll call it a writing blog. I write about writing, books, music and whatever is haunting me on any given day. I also write sad poems.

    Happy New Year!

    Happy new year Janice, and thanks for organizing another meet and greet! I think this is the second time I’ve participated and it was great to find some awesome new blogs to follow 🙂

    I blog at:

    I live on the north coast of Scotland, and I write about topics that interest me which include writing, the sea, mindfulness, finance, living well and creating.

    Hi Janice! Thanks for the party and what a great idea for the New Year! I am a new blogger working hard to share my love of Excel Spreadsheets. I recently created a tool specifically for bloggers looking to organize their Link Parties and easily keep track of them.

    I also post about favorite recipes and fun times with my husband and one year old son.

    Happy New Year, Janice! I blog at Back Porchervations (which means observations made on the back porch) It’s kind of morphed over the years to mostly a book blog and I post lots of reviews, contests, author interviews and guest posts!

    Here is an entry on a viral puzzle that made the news around Christmas time.

    Hello fellow bloggers! I have come across Mostly Blogging very recently so this is my first ever Meet and Greet. Janice it’s a wonderful party indeed!
    I have a food blog called ‘Tanushree’s Delicacies’ where I share recipes for brand new cooks. I like to keep my techniques and ingredients as simple as possible so even the most inexperienced cook can whip out amazing dishes.
    It’s only 50 posts old but please come over and have a look

    And I absolutely love connecting with other bloggers. Now I couldn’t find a lot of other food bloggers over here but I would love to exchange some kitchen secrets with you so come on over!

    Hi Janice – thanks so much for this opportunity to “meet n greet” with a few other bloggers and of course Happy New Year. Really appreciate the steady stream of great “how to’s” and helpful info you send my way and I’m planning to take better advantage of it as I head into 2016. For anyone who would like to take a visit down my way the Welcome page is of course great place for visitors to start. There are
    some links on that page to posts that kinda sum up what I am all about.

    Hi Janice! Thanks for visiting my blog and inviting me to join in here! I’m very excited to make some bloggy friends! I just started a new blog (not the one you visited), so there’s not much there yet, but I hope to get a few visitors. My blog, Shan’s Shenanigans, will have a little bit of everything. Arts and Crafts, Recipes, Family stuff, Law of Attraction info, pets, and who knows what else! LOL I have too many interests to keep to only one topic. It will be the Encyclopedia of Random Goodness! 😉

    Now, I’m off to visit some of your other lovely commenters!

    ~Peace and Love~

  21. Michael Noker | at 5:55 pm

    Happy new year! I decided to start following a nice writing prompt book I found through another blogger, so I’m going to be posting at least once per day in 2016 (that sounds intimidating).

    I think CommentLuv is going to link to my latest post, which is how to find inspiration for blog posts. That’s a good one to check out!

    Hi bloggers,
    I am here to make new friends and hoping that there will be more comments on my posts each time I post.
    My blog is mostly about me and the things I do. I am not an expert in anything but am a simple and trying to be honest human being who started blogging during a period of unemployment in 2014. Blogging was considered essential if one wanted to be successful as a writer and so I started a blog. It started becoming a cathartic blog and one which I use to cry and sigh and mope a bit. I made a lot of blog friends and get much friendly advice when I am in distress.
    The link to my blog is
    Please visit and read some of my posts.
    I would say the current goal of my blog is to get more comments in my blog posts.
    Best regards and happy new year,

    Hi Janice
    Thanks for the invite to this Meet and Greet. I just wanted to let people know about my blog-My Journey Through Cancer. I am linking to my about page. My sincere hope is to bring early detection to readers and for those with cancer-to have a person they can relate through while the emotional storm of the disease hits.

  26. Lois Hoffman | at 5:57 am

    Hi Janice,
    Thanks for inviting me to the Meet and Greet! I’m excited to start the year off with some new friends. I work with bloggers and business professionals to establish their credibility and increase their influence through writing and publishing a book. You’ve already got the content. Let’s turn it into a book! Come visit and find out how we can make 2016 rock!

    At first i thought a blogging party?! But here i am perusing through comments on the party post. Brilliant idea Janice…only i am still figuring how to get my drink and cake…lol. Alright a little about me…i love writing and telling stories; meeting new people and i am passionate about making life better for women and girls. My blog is basically about feminine related matters. Somehow you can’t talk about women and not narrow in to family matters so men can enjoy reading too. I also share a bit from my everyday life. It will be my pleasure to have you visit my page as i do my best to bring you stories from my world. so here is a new year post
    I’d also recommend these blogs as i find them quite informative and interesting
    Thanks Janice for this special and thoughtful opportunity to share.

  29. Vicky Warren | at 10:01 pm

    Hello! This is a great concept! I have kept a family blog for a few years now, but am brand new to blogging as more than a “scrapbook”.

    My blog is called Living the Diagnosis. As a nurse, I am always curious what it is like to live with different diseases, conditions, syndromes, etc, so I can help treat patients the best I can. Right now, I am staying home with my kids, so I decided to continue my passion for learning more about how to really “take care” of people by starting this blog!

    I have no idea what my niche is. I am gathering guest posts from anyone who wants to share about their experience. I also write posts myself on conditions my family and I live with and also educational posts.

    Thank you for this experience!

  30. Just Plain Marie | at 6:57 am

    Hey, Janice, you do so much networking and introducing people, it’s fabulous!

    I’m Marie and I write at Just Plain Living. It is a “homesteading and simple living” blog, which means that help people simplify their lives, get control of their finances and prepare for disasters so that they are manageable. I have a cookbook out on Amazon called A Cabin Full of Food.

    It’s great working with you at The Blogger’s Pit Stop, Janice!

    Hey JANICE WALD !!

    I really appreciate your blog.Goood going work.Sounds like you are reading to have an amazing New Year. Going out instead of doing anything at home this year.Getting all dressed up and heading out to a fancy party is probably my favourite way to ring in the new year, but I’ve only managed to do it on a few occasions.

    keep sharing
    Have a great year
