2010 Review Extravaganza!!

Did you realize that 2010 is almost over? I cannot believe another year has come and gone. I have been scratching my head trying to think of the best way to recap the year. I collaborated with a few other amazing bloggers and we are happy to present

What is the 2010 Review Extravaganza? It is your chance to write up some posts and recap what happened during the year. You can put your favorite pictures, tell your favorite stories, link back to your favorite posts, however you want to do it. Just in case you had some slow months, we will be reviewing three months at a time.

Then starting next Friday- you can come here or to any of the other bloggers hosting this extravaganza (who I will list here soon) and link up with your post. You only need to link up at one location as it will show up on each of the lists.

So-next Friday the 10th, you will link up with your recap about January, February and March.
Friday the 17th-link up with recap of April, May and June.
Friday the 24th-link up with recap of July, August and September.
Friday the 31st-link up with recap of October, November and December.

See how nicely that works out-by the time it is December's recap, December will be over practically. You DO NOT have to write your post on Friday, you can write it any day that week, that is just the day to link up. So when you link up, make sure you put a link to your post and not just your blog in general. ((To do this, just click on the title of your post and then you can copy all that www gibberish that is in your browser bar))

And well this is called an Extravaganza so there is more! Every time you link up with a recap and include the cute little button I spent hours on, you will get entered into the drawing. Link up on the 10th and get an entry, the 17th and get another entry, etc., with a total of 4 possible entries. When all is said and done, I will let do the dirty work and pick a winner who will then receive a little something from the six ladies who are hosting this Extravaganza.

Who are the six ladies? Glad you asked.

Well first there's me-kind of obvious since you are reading this post on my blog here.

Then there is the fabulous and funny Mimi of Living in France (and a little hint-she doesn't actually live in France--I know I thought so for a while)

Next we have Sami of Symmetry in Motion (she has amazingly creative contests and great prizes on her blog regularly)
Samantha's Day

Also we have Lourie of CA Girl (I have a real soft spot for her as she's my cousin-in-law -sigh wipe away a tear)

And the fabulous Emily of That's So Emilisq is joining us. Not only does she have the same name as me but she and I have been long time blogging buddies.. since I had only a handful of followers.

And last, but certainly not least is Shortmama from Family of Shorts. (She is the genius behind the Muffin Top Journey)
Family of Shorts

And to give you incentive to get to know these fabulous ladies if you don't already, if you go to their blogs and follow each of them (and me) through the google friend thingy then you can get a 5th bonus entry. Once you are following all of us lovely ladies go ahead and come leave a comment on THIS post saying so.

So are you excited?!?! Not only will you get to share your favorite posts/ pictures/ stories from this past year but you may win a prize for doing so!

So spread the word, grab the button and write your recap so you can link up next Friday!

Just copy and paste the code in the box.
