Holly Bloggy Christmas Bash: Afterthoughts and Thank Yous


Hey everyone! I want to thank you all so much for linking up at the Holly Bloggy Christmas Bash last week! This was my first time to host a big event like this, and I’m so pleased with the way it turned out. A few days before it started I was telling my husband that I had no idea how much participation we’d have, The two weeks leading up to the event I had a lot of things to deal with outside of the blogging world, and I had no time to really promote the event the way I wanted to, so I set a very modest goal in my head. And so I was thrilled with the turn out that we had. At this point, we have a total of over 300 links at the 5 events!

I want to thank Jen, Teresa, Heidi, and Cheryl for agreeing to help me host this event. You guys are fantastic bloggers, and your event posts were incredible! I really appreciate your enthusiasm and the work you put in to this! If all goes well, I’ll try to put the event together again next year, and I’d be thrilled to have all of you back again!

Secondly, thanks to all of the prize sponsors! I really appreciate the opportunity to promote great products and companies. And I’m honored to have folks like you supporting my blog!

To all those who participated in the event, I will be doing the prize drawings shortly. I have a few that will be announced this week, and then there will be more to come over the next couple weeks (for the prizes that have separate giveaway posts). Also, this week I’m doing a Holly Bloggy “After Party” of sorts. That is, I’ll be featuring some ideas from last week’s contributors on my blog, so be on the look out for that, as you may get featured! Thank you all again so much for attending the event and making it a success. Merry Christmas!



  1. Thank you for putting it all together! It was a lot of fun jumping around from blog to blog to see what others had posted. I look forward to doing it again next year. 🙂 Thank you again.

  3. Thank you for hosting it too! I didn't get around to participating in everything but it sure was fun having a look around.

    Best wishes, Natasha.

    Thank you for hosting such a fun event. I still have lots of visiting to do as blogging time was a little scarce last week (and probably this week).
