A Whimsical Bohemian, came up with this brilliant idea and this year makes the fifth year. It also is the last year, probably because it's grown to enormous proportions; last year, I believe, there were more than one thousand participants!
Lisa calls it a world wide meet and greet event where people visit blogs they, might, never run across otherwise. It begins 30 Jan when people go to her blog and sign up. Have you ever thrown food into a koi pond and watched the fish churn the water as they fight for the food? That's what it's like; I'm surprised her server doesn't have heart failure that first day. It ends 17 Feb when you announce the winner or winners of your gifts.
There are a few rules so you need to visit Lisa's blog to read further. Bloggers who participate aren't supposed to make blog readers jump through hoops but...but...there are always those few idiots who...what, do you suppose? feel they are above following rules? are egotistical? are rude? and say, "must become a follower, must subscribe to my blog, must visit my shop" or something else they aren't supposed to say. It's all about visiting, commenting and, above all "meeting and greeting". Cool!
I've been participating since 2008 and have loved every moment. I can travel the world without leaving my beloved farm -smile- and meet so many terrific people, see their art work, peek at their lives...I'm telling you, it's fantastic!
