Can there ever be too many linking parties? Noooo - and that is why I have decided to give it a go and start one myself. You see, I have noticed that most linking parties seem to happen during the week. That's all very well, of course. But I would love to see more stuff happening on a Saturday cos that's when I get a bit of time to play with my blog...
I like it when blog parties have a particular slant - whether it is a theme like Michelle's from Someday Crafts recently started Categorically Crafting. Michelle sets a theme for the week and the linked projects have to reflect that. Or even once-off events like Beth's at The Stories from A to Z. She is hosting a "Show me your shoes Party" soon. Ok, that's not necessarily crafty, but you get the drift.
Sooooooooooooooo, to come to the point: I am starting a "Best Post of the Week"-Party. The reason behind it: I have noticed there are a lot of crafty people out there who post more than just one ingenious project per week. I try to be one of them (but have lately been sucked into my college work again...). However, there is usually one post in any one week which I particularly loved or am especially proud of. And my new link party The Star on Saturday is meant to be a platform for those star projects that you want to highlight especially. In my case, for instance, this week I particularly liked my silhouette mugs. If you only wrote one post the previous week - doesn't matter, it is automatically your star post and you can link up!
The rules are:
- The project has to be yours. (But it doesn't matter whether it was posted on your blog or you posted it as a guest post somewhere else.)
- Only one link per week.
- You need to link back to the party via link or button.
- Anything vaguely crafty goes: Projects, re-dos, before and afters, recipes, how tos, also blogging tips.
I know this is an experiment - I need to get the word out that there is a new party on the
So, let's just give it a go - please take part, link your (own!!!) star post of the past week, stick a reference to the party in your post (either with the button or by link back) and spread the word.
