Review Extravaganza 2011- The Rules

All right are you ready for this? I am so excited about this year's Review Extravaganza that is going to be begin NEXT Friday! So today I am telling you all the rules and nitty gritty.

What is the 2011 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. That way if you had a slow month, since we will be reviewing three months at a time it will be just fine. And it does not matter if you did not blog during any of the months- after all you still were living so something had to happen./

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 your post. You only need to link up at one location as it will show up on each of the lists.

Friday the 9th, you will link up with your recap about January, February and March.
Friday the 16th-link up with recap of April, May and June.
Friday the 23rd-link up with recap of July, August and September.
Friday the 30th-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 practically over. 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. And you will have a few extra days to link up- until Wednesday. 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 now the Extravaganza part! Every time you link up with a recap AND include the cute little button you will get entered into the drawing. Link up on the 9th and get an entry, the 16th 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 and what will you win? Each of the hosts- all 8 of us will personally pick a present for the winner- so imagine getting 8 pacakges filled with something just for you!!

You can also receive some bonus entries- if you follow through GFC all of the hosts of the blog you can receive a bonus 5th entry. Once you are following all of the fabulous hosts come back to THIS post on my blog and leave a comment telling me that you following everyone.

So who are the hosts?

In no particular order:
Emmy Mom

California Girl

Em of Emilisq

Grumpy Grateful Mom

Impulsive Addict

Janette of Johanson Journey

MiMi Living in France

Runner Mom
runner mom blog

All great ladies you should definitely read! So to break it down really simply
  • Link up each Friday with your recap-- you will have between Friday to the following Tuesday to link up for it to count for points
  • Receive 1 point for every week you link up -button must be in your post (4 possible)
  • Receive 1 bonus point for following all of the hosts blog (1 pt) -leave a comment stating you are following on THIS post
  • If you are the winner receive 8 gifts picked just for you!

Any questions feel free to ask as we want this to be a great experience for everyone! So get your recaps ready and join in next Friday for the fun!
