How can it be December already? Wasn’t it just yesterday when we were in the middle of summer?? Ah well, I can say one thing with certainty: I am already planning and looking forward to several fun events for 2017. So mark your calendars and spread the word!
2017 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop
I want to thank Cheryl @Meadow Mist Designs and Stephanie @Late Night Quilter for partnering with me for 2 years to co-host the New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop. They both have very exciting new adventures planned for 2017, so please join me in welcoming Leanne @she can quilt and Beth @Cooking Up Quilts as co-hosts for the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop!
Based on feedback, we will be shifting the schedule so that the 2017 blog hop will wrap up before summer. The timeline is tentatively:
- February 2017
- Signups Open
- March 2017
- Registration Closes
- Group introductions
- Behind the scenes discussions via Slack (we will not be using Facebook Groups next year)
- Blog critiques
- April 2017
- First Two Weeks of Blog Hop
- May 2017
- Final Two Weeks of Blog Hop
If you are an alumni or quilting blogger who has been active for longer than 3 years, we would love to have you share this information so that as many new bloggers can be exposed to this opportunity as possible. We would also love to grow our list of Advice for New Bloggers posts. If you have previously written something or would like to write a post that we can link to about anything you wish you had known earlier in your blogging adventure, please contact myself, Leanne, or Beth by leaving a comment on either of our blogs or emailing us for further details.
2017 Planning Party
I will be hosting a 2017 Planning Linky Party, much like my 2016 Planning Linky Party. The link up will open on December 15th and run through December 31st. Start thinking about your plans and goals for next year… linking up will enter you to win some fantastic prizes!
