After The Party
The 2013 Ultimate Blog Party officially ends on Friday, April 12, 2013 and we’ve been asked to write about a few bloggers we’ve connected with throughout the party – but I’ve met so many wonderful bloggers and re-connected with so many old friends – how can I single out one or two?
For me, in many ways, the party really begins afterwards, when the clock stops ticking and connections really have a chance to bloom. The links remain open all year and I enjoy visiting throughout and really taking time to savor each visit to the fullest!
I DO want to single out Janice and Susan – our hostesses – for hosting this awesome event each year. Here’s to friendship and connections in the blogosphere!
