Upcoming Events at Simply Sweet Home


Hey everyone! I have a few announcements to make! First of all, I am currently planning a new weekly event for this blog. I’d really love to add more interactivity to the site. Plus I love attending blog events each week, and I had so much fun hosting the Holly Bloggy! I’ve been brainstorming and kicking around some ideas for the past several months, and I’ve finally come up with a feature idea that I think will be fun for one and all!

The event will be called Friday Favorites. To participate, just link up your favorite post of the week. This is pretty much wide-open. You can link up a recipe, a craft, baby pictures, a project, a tip, a deal you found, just about anything (family friendly of course). Or if you have a “Favorites” event at your blog you can link up at that post. (I know some of you have posts where you feature your favorite links, write about your favorite things from the week, etc.) It’s entirely up to you.

Also, for the event I will be featuring posts from you guys! To be eligible to get featured, you just have to link up at the event or be a follower of my blog. Each week I’ll visit everyone who links up and some of my followers, and then I’ll pick items to feature for the next week. This will help me get to know you guys better, and it should create new traffic for all of us.

I will launching this event next week. The post will be published late next Thursday night, and you will have until the following Wednesday to link up you posts. I’ve also created a button for the event. You don’t have to use it to link up. I only require that you add a link to my blog on your post so that others will know about the event.  I welcome your comments and questions, and I hope to see you here next for the first party.

Business Event – For Bloggers & Shop Owners – Next Week

Secondly, did you guys know that February is National Start a Business Month? I know we have a lot of readers who own their own businesses or blog to make money, so next week I’ll be devoting some time to post on some business topics that should be helpful to you guys. Among these posts there will be 2 guest articles from writer Christy Strauch. Christy is the author of Passion, Plan, Profit: 12 Simple Steps to Turn Your Passion into a Solid Business.  All month long Christy is having a virtual book tour, and I’m proud to say that Simply Sweet Home was chosen as one of the tour hosts! Christy sent me a copy of her new book a couple of weeks ago, and it’s excellent! (I’ll be reviewing it some time in the next month or so.) And I’m really pleased to be having Christy here next week to provide you with some insight and advice!
