      Welcome! Thanks for sharing 🙂

      • ivycottageonbertie | 10th Dec 16

        Thank you very much for doing this. What a wonderful way to discover other blogs. I am so new to blogging and still rather nervous. I do appreciate the response from you since I started it.

        • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

          No problem! That’s what it is all about! Love reading new blog post and finding new bloggers. I hope you get to discover lots today too 🙂

    • dharris21blog | 10th Dec 16

      Great post! I’m not a fan of fruit cake, but maybe I’ll give it a try.

    • inkowlme | 10th Dec 16

      Love it and never leave it!! You’ve got a fantastic blog! I’m excited to keep following you. (That kinda sounds stalkerish . . . Oh well.

  1. Hannah Grace 2001 | 10th Dec 16

    Hey, guys! I’m back again fro another awesome blog party! I’ll be popping out for a few hours soon, but should be back to see this party in full swing! 😉 The first post I would like to share with all of you lovely people is called the Essential Rhett and Link Starter Pack. It would be greatly appreciated if you could read the post as it is one of my personal favourites! <3 – Hannah https://hannahreads2001.wordpress.com/2016/10/31/the-essential-rhett-and-link-starter-pack/

    • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

    • Elizabeth | 10th Dec 16

  2. Kristin | 10th Dec 16

    I either hear about parties later or I’m too early hahaha. idk how I’m up this early on a Saturday

    • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

      You might be early but no matter. Thanks for popping in!

  3. xdreamingtheday | 10th Dec 16

    Heyyy everyone! This is my first official blog party! In a minute I’m going to decorate my Christmas tree -Woehooeeeee- , so I’m going to be away for an hour or so, but I’ll be back soon! In the mean time, here is my first link! It’s a Get To Know Me Tag, which I thought would be perfect to share with you guys!
    https://dreamingtheday.wordpress.com/2016/12/10/get-to-know-me-tag/

    Yours faithfully,
    Anne

    • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

      Hey Anne! Welcome! So glad you could make it, checking out this blog post now. Have fun decorating your tree and thanks again. Cheers!

    • You Can Always Start Now | 10th Dec 16

      Great idea to do post the get to know me tag. See you have been to a lot of places! Add Canada! Also have you heard of National Novel Writing Month? it is for authors and noticed you write. See you later at the party!

      • xdreamingtheday | 10th Dec 16

        Hey! Thanks! I actually have family living in Canada, and we might do a house swap sometimes, really want to visit Canada ahahah. I didn’t know about the National Novel Writing Month, but I’m going to check it out right now! Thanks for the tip!;D

    • chiemichong | 10th Dec 16

      Love your tag! Great idea for blog partyyy:)

      • xdreamingtheday | 10th Dec 16

        thank youuu!

    • dharris21blog | 11th Dec 16

      Good post, Anne! I’m David. Nice to meet you. You just gained a new follower. This too is my first blog party.

  4. cajkinney | 10th Dec 16

    I really wanted to share this story, but it didn’t fit well with either of my blogs, so I published an essay on issuu.com. The link to “Losing Ziggy” is https://issuu.com/carolkinney/docs/losing_ziggy.docx

    This is an essay about how our family came to love a cat named Ziggy, and learning how that love translated into having to give him up.

    As requested by StephJ, my bio and all the ways you can connect with me via social media, and the links to my blogs are included at the end of the essay. Thanks for reading and Happy Festive Feelings Blog Day.

    • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

      Hey! Thanks for popping by! So awesome to have you join int, I am checking out your blog post now. Cheers!

      • cajkinney | 10th Dec 16

        Thanks, StephJ! I appreciate it. It’s not like what I usually write, so it’s a little scary putting forth all these feelings. lol

        • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

          I used to be very cautious about sharing those things too. I have been trying more often to post personal things and they happen to be my favourite posts.

          • cajkinney | 10th Dec 16

            Exactly. I’m actually working hard at overcoming my perfectionist traits that make it hard for me to be overly emotional in public. So, this was the perfect forum. Thanks for thinking up this Festive Feelings Blog Party!

          • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

            Thank you very much. I hope you enjoy yourself and discover lots of new blogs today. 🙂

    • cajkinney | 10th Dec 16

      Thanks, Elizabeth for liking my post!

  5. Kate | 10th Dec 16

    Hello lovely people of the blogosphere! This is my first ever blog party so I’m kinda giddy with what’s gonna happen 😄 It’s night over here so I may be away (sleeping) for some hours but I’ll be back early in the morning to get to know all of you 😊 So here’s my first post to share which is my recent post.
    Here I share a few ways I do to let happiness into my life every day and I think it’s timely since this month’s all about celebration and being happy 😄 So yeah, I’ll be back soon!

  7. letahawk | 10th Dec 16

    Hello everyone. Isn’t this fun? I can’t wait till I can sit down a bit later and begin reading new blogs!
    I’m a stay-at-home mom and author who writes paranormal fiction (at least for now). I have three books published and about three hundred swimming around in my head. My blog is a bit of a mish-mash of whatever is on my mind at any given time. I’ve been attempting to do a blog post each day in December, documenting memories I have of preparing for Christmas; I want to print it up at some point and give it to my kids. Here’s a link to one of those memories.

    https://letaphawk.wordpress.com/2016/12/06/25-days-of-christmas-memories-day-6/

    • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

      Welcome! So awesome that you have published three books that is HUGE! It is hard to post everyday but it would be an awesome way to hold onto those memories forever! Checking out your blog post now, thanks for joining the party!

    • Lianne | 10th Dec 16

      Such a nice idea to write these memories for your children 😊

    • inkowlme | 10th Dec 16

      This really fun! Kudos to you for posting as much as you can this month! I’m hoping to do that next month to get me through January. 🙂 you have a wonderful blog!

    • Kate | 10th Dec 16

      Oh wow! Three published books is amazing! And I’m sure your kids will love reading the print out! Checking out your blog now 😊

  15. mandysmusings | 10th Dec 16

    Hello all! This is my first blog party, so thanks again for the invite! Our family moved to Athens, Greece, at the beginning of 2016, and I’ve been keeping a blog about our time here ever since. Some of my observations are pretty amusing. Quite a culture shock, indeed! The first post I’m linking to is from April, when we first got our car. Driving here is an exercise in humility…as I quickly discovered. Enjoy! https://greeceisthewordblog.com/2016/04/02/a-leisurely-drive-i-think-not/

    • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

      Hi Mandy! That sounds like such an adventure, I am really looking forward to hearing more about your story, very interesting indeed. Welcome to the party, hope you enjoy.

  16. StephJ | 10th Dec 16

    Hey everyone! Your host here. So happy you could all join in this party, and I can’t wait for more to join in, it is only early 🙂

    If you don’t know, my blog is about happiness, positive vibes, lifestyle, my travel adventures and all kinds of random things. Here is a post I wrote this week that I would like to share with you all. https://scaleitsimple.com/2016/12/07/6-ways-to-survive-the-holidays-introvert-style/

    Don’t forget to share the party, and comment on other blogs. Don’t be shy. Happy Holidays!

    • mandysmusings | 10th Dec 16

      Great post, Steph! I’m actually an extrovert, but I’m married to and have a son who is an introvert, so these tips will definitely come in handy when I’m trying to understand why THEY are so stressed out. Thanks!

      • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

        I hope they may find it useful 😊

  23. Lindsay Nell | 10th Dec 16

    Hey there! Thank you so very much for letting me know about this awesome festive blog party. It’s super hot here in Cape Town today so I’ll trade in my hot chocolate and fluffy blanket for a pair of flip flops and a cocktail if you don’t mind. I’m Lindsay Nell, a self-published author, mom, homeschooler, husky owner and blogger over at Home, Hugs and Huskies. I’ll be sharing a free printable Letter to Santa that I shared on my blog a few days ago for blogmas https://homehugshuskies.wordpress.com/2016/12/06/on-the-sixth-day-of-blogmas-a-collaboration-and-a-free-printable-letter-to-santa/. I have a few more Christmas themed freebies on my blog if you are interested in checking that out as well. Thanks again for hosting this blog party. I hope to meet many fun and interesting bloggers here. Have a great day and take care. <3

    • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

      Hi Lindsay, so glad you could make it! It is snowing here in Newfoundland today so those flip flops sound mighty good. Thanks again for stopping by!

      • Lindsay Nell | 10th Dec 16

        Please enjoy the snow for me! It has been such strange weather here, because it was flooding yesterday and now the sun is out in full force.

        • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

          Oh the strange weather of the world! What is going on? haha. I would love a bit of that snow though

      • Brenda | 10th Dec 16

        WHAT you are in Newfoundland! I’m sitting here getting ready to head out in NS.

        • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

          Awesome! It is actually pretty decent here today. AND…. shockingly enough there is hardly any snow on the ground here in St. John’s haha. Lets see how long that will last. I have never been to NS. Are you going for the holidays?

  24. mrsmurfinscountrylife | 10th Dec 16

    https://mrsmurfinscountrylife.com/2016/12/07/blogmas-day-7-hygge-hy-what/

    Hello everyone. Thank you to StephJ for hosting this. I am looking forward to spending the day enjoying some new blogs. It is currently a bit of a snowstorm here, so a good day for it!
    I am from rural southwestern Ontario Canada. I have blogged on and off for a few years but decided this year to blog everyday between December 1st and 25th. I wanted to do it to enhance my own festive activities but also to re-energize by blogging mojo. The post I have added above was from last week. I have been interested in the whole hygge craze, but also think a lot of us just do it without knowing it. Especially if you are a homebody like me. I hope you enjoy!

    • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

      Hello and welcome! So happy you could make it. yay! It is a little cold here today too, I heard you guys were getting dumped with snow, very cosy and festive. Not so great when you have to shovel haha. Thanks again for stopping by 🙂

      • mrsmurfinscountrylife | 10th Dec 16

        That is why I let Hubby buy an expensive tractor. He loves to get out there to “play” on it and I don’t have to shovel!

        • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

          haha! He probably looks forward to a bit of snow! My boyfriend is the same way, it is like a sense of snow duty washes over him. He starts doing every ones driveways

  25. Lisa A. | 10th Dec 16

    Hi everyone and Merry Christmas! Thank you for hosting this wonderful party! I’m Lisa and my blog is Life of an El Paso Woman. I blog about stuff in my hometown, music, movies, life, travels, etc. I like a lot of things so I blog about different things. I’m including a link from one of my family’s Christmas traditions. Me, my mom and grandma get together every December to make 25-30 (sometimes more) pounds of tamales. You can check it out here https://lifeofanelpasowoman.com/2015/12/25/our-christmas-tamales/ Take care everyone and I’ll be reading your blogs!

  33. Vicki @ Babies to Bookworms | 10th Dec 16

    http://www.babiestobookworms.com/2016/11/28/best-christmas-board-books/

    My blog is about the importance of reading aloud to kids, along with activities to pair with popular books.

    • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

      Great idea for a blog! Glad you could make it today!

    • Nostalgia Seekers | 10th Dec 16

      I love your site! I’ve been reading to my daughter since the day she was born — it’s so important! I really like how you pair activities with the books – cool idea!

      • Vicki @ Babies to Bookworms | 10th Dec 16

        Thank you! It’s always been a passion of mine. I Loved creating lesson plans around books when I was teaching. I’m excited to be doing it now with my daughter!

  34. Nostalgia Seekers | 10th Dec 16

    What a fun idea! I’m a new blogger, less than 2 months in. A little about me: the past year has been one of immense change for me. My divorce was finalized and I moved out and had to start completely over. The ending of my marriage had left me not knowing who I was anymore, and I felt completely lost. But I always remembered who I had wanted to be: I wanted to be a writer and I wanted to be an artist. When I started looking back to who I used to be, I realized I wanted to get back to that person. So I decided to start a blog around the concept of nostalgia, which is such a universal feeling, and I thought a lot of people could connect with the feeling. I’m using my memories to help create a better life for myself. I have a 5 year old daughter, I really want to create new traditions with her and create good, amazing memories with her so that when she is nostalgic one day, she will smile and remember a happy, positive childhood. So here’s a recent post. Thanks for checking it out! https://nostalgiadiaries.com/2016/11/15/how-to-spread-love-the-power-of-rituals/

    • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

      Welcome to the. Log party and happy blogging. Thank you for sharing a bit about yourself. I look forward to seeing what you wrote about more on your blog.

    • zozieposie | 10th Dec 16

      I enjoyed your sweet blog piece and commented. ..and followed your blog! 😊

      • Nostalgia Seekers | 10th Dec 16

        I love your blog, and all things whimsical. Glad we found each other!

    • Kate | 10th Dec 16

      I really enjoyed this blog post. It’s kinda weird because I’m still a college student and I have no idea what being a mom feels like but this moved me so much like I can relate to it 😊
      But then again, love comes in all forms. Thank you for writing and being so compassionate! I look forward to more stories of your and Zoey’s adventures!

  35. xdreamingtheday | 10th Dec 16

    I think it’s time for my second link! This time, it’s one of my stories. I had to make this story for an English assignment and thought, why not share it with the world! So here you go, hope you’ll enjoy it! https://dreamingtheday.wordpress.com/2016/11/13/picture-story/

    • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

      Awesome! Hope your enjoying the party so far!

      • xdreamingtheday | 10th Dec 16

  36. geminilvr | 10th Dec 16

    Reblogged this on And then there was one and commented:
    Come join the fun and meet fellow bloggers. Thanks StephJ

  37. Marge Cutter Tesch | 10th Dec 16

    Hi, everyone!

    First, thanks, Steph, for hosting this party – I think it’s a fabulous idea!

    My name is Margaret Tesch, but I write primarily under the name Marge Cutter. I’ve only been blogging a little over a year, since October 2015. I started my blog as part of my participation in the Writer’s Digest Writer’s 2015 October Platform Challenge, which was designed by WD to help new writers and authors develop a writing platform. One of my earliest blogs was about the Black Friday traditions I remembered from my childhood. Since it is the holiday season, I thought I would share that with everyone at the party. You can find that post here: https://margecutter.wordpress.com/2015/11/29/black-friday-tradition/

    Since then, my blog has evolved into the adventures of a group of my characters from a YA Fantasy Series I am writing. In my blog, these characters have fallen from the pages of my manuscripts into the “real” world, and my blog chronicles their adventures here. If it’s okay to share more than one post from my blog, I will come back in a bit and link to one of those posts as well.

    • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

      Hi! Thanks for joining I am happy you could make it. I look forward to checking out your blog today. Yay!

      • Marge Cutter Tesch | 10th Dec 16

        Thanks! I look forward to checking out many of the blogs from the party today! 🙂

    • Kate | 10th Dec 16

      Hi Margaret! Can I just say that I’m like a HUGE fan of YA Fantasy? And this idea is pure gold to a me! I’m checking out your blog now and really excited to meet your characters! 😄

  38. Mike | 10th Dec 16

    In honor of the holiday blog party, I give you my post about 7 great inexpensive tech gifts you can give this holiday season! http://www.avgguytech.com/7-great-tech-gifts-on-a-budget/

    • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

      Awesome! Thanks mike. Hope you enjoy the party!

    • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

      The best!

    • zozieposie | 10th Dec 16

      I did a piece about children’s books recently. ..I still love them myself😊…not read the grinch though

  39. D. Parker | 10th Dec 16

    Great minds think alike, Stephanie, blog parties are a great way to enjoy the season. My name is Donna and I’m also having one this weekend – 12 Links of Christmas Blog Party, a kind of Christmas card to all my readers and fellow bloggers. Anyone can leave up to 12 links, the posts don’t need to be Christmas related, they don’t even need to be there own and share the comfort and joy. https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/12/08/dear-santa-i-can-explain/
    Thanks for the opportunity, now off to visit and share! 🙂
    All the best, always and Happy Holidays to all! 🙂

    • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

      Wow! Thanks for sharing. Can’t wait to check out your party! Thanks for stopping by!

  40. w631337 | 10th Dec 16

    I’m starting a blog (yet to be named) for writing about music. My first post, “Are the friends you share music with really a mind-controlling internet cult?” explains why I’ve decided to do this and why I’m nervous about getting started. https://w631337.wordpress.com/

    • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

      Awesome! I look forward to checking it out 🙂

  41. Marge Cutter Tesch | 10th Dec 16

    Well, I guess it’s time for my second post. I have been enjoying exploring everyone’s blogs, and there are a number I will go back to for a more detailed examination!

    I’m not much of a poet, but an early post I did featuring my poetry and links to other poetry by some of my friends and colleagues garnered a lot of response. If you enjoy poetry, here is a link to that post: https://margecutter.wordpress.com/2015/12/06/some-poetry-this-week/

  42. Hannah Grace 2001 | 10th Dec 16

    Looks like you’ve started another successful blog party, Steph! 😉 Congratulations! 🙂 I finally arrived home from Christmas shopping, so I thought it may be time to share my second post – a tag that I recently created for lovers of all things bookish and musical! https://hannahreads2001.wordpress.com/2016/10/16/the-readers-playlist-tag/

  43. live_a_life_less_ordinary | 10th Dec 16

    I did this last time… I’ll check out some of these other blogs later.

    My blog is basically just thoughts about life from someone who thinks too much. Here’s a recent sample:

  47. passionistaatlarge | 10th Dec 16

    HI everyone! This is my first visit for these blog parties and I’m so excited to be here! I’m a retired schoolteacher who adopted two special needs kids (when I was 50! and they were 2) who are now 16 and almost 17. I was married when we adopted them and my husband (who by then was my ex) died 6 years ago, so I’m doing this all alone. |
    I am a speaker, writer, graphic designer, truth-talker, fun-lover, teacher, camper, & outdoor-lover. My passion is to help people, especially women, realize their value and worth, and to help them stop believing lies about themselves.
    I do hope you will have time to read this post, as it gives a snapshot of my messages! Thanks Steph for providing this venue to share!!

    https://particularpassions.me/2016/11/16/you-are-more/

    • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

      Wow that is quiet a story! Thank you for sharing with us, you are a special person, so much strength and courage! I look forward to checking out your blog post today. Thanks again, and I hope you enjoy.

  48. StephJ | 10th Dec 16

    I am going to share my latest post with you all. https://scaleitsimple.com/2016/12/08/three-inspirational-women-you-should-get-to-know-this-year/

    Loving all these blogs so far. xo

  49. mandysmusings | 10th Dec 16

    Kids are in bed, time for my second post! One of the challenges I’ve discovered living in Greece is figuring out how to bake with local ingredients, all while converting everything to the metric system. Add a mobile toddler to the mix, and hilarity ensues. https://greeceisthewordblog.com/2016/09/16/adventures-in-baking/

    • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

      Awesome! Thanks for coming back, hope you get a chance to read through some of the posts and meet some new bloggers. 🙂

    • cookandenjoyrecipes | 13th Dec 16

      Love your blog and following you. THanks for sharing your adventures in baking with us. Hope you will pop over and see what’s cooking at my end.

  50. passionistaatlarge | 10th Dec 16

    I know! It sounds crazy, and it has been for sure, but it works. 🙂 This is so fun. Going to take some time today to read some blog posts!!

  51. Marge Cutter Tesch | 10th Dec 16

    I know it hasn’t been very long since I left my second post, but I unfortunately have an engagement this afternoon, so I must leave here soon. Therefore, I thought I would leave one last post from my blog.

    One of my favorite hobbies is nature photography. I decided one day to incorporate that into my blog, sharing some of my photos by telling a story. In my story, I took a few of my characters with me on a nature walk. We had a surprisingly pleasant outing. 🙂
    https://margecutter.wordpress.com/2016/04/17/a-surprisingly-pleasant-outing/

    I’ll be back this week to explore more of the blogs shared today at the party. Have a great day, everyone, and Happy Holidays! Thanks again for hosting the party, Steph! It was fun!

    One of my favorite posts is https://thechickengrandma.wordpress.com/2016/11/04/tranquility-and-grace-moments/. I especially like it for this busy time of year. I love to be reminded to slow down and enjoy the moments gifted us.

    Hello all. My name is David Harris. I’m 24, and I love to write. I’m African American. I graduated from Austin Peay with Communications major and English. The link here is to my first blog post regarding stuttering. I have been stuttering since I was four, so I felt the need to share with the world about how you should go about interacting with those who stutter. I see some good writers on here!

    • StephJ | 10th Dec 16

      Hey David! Thanks so much for sharing this post. You seem like you have a interesting background. I can’t wait to check out your blog. Sounds like a great concept.

    Hi everyone. Are you enjoying all this great reading material? I don’t know when I’ll get to read all the posts, but I’m working on it! Here is my second one. I hope you enjoy it, and will leave a comment on what you think. https://particularpassions.me/2016/11/03/i-won/

    • StephJ | 11th Dec 16

      Thanks for sharing another wonderful post!

  75. thechickengrandma | 11th Dec 16

    First off thank you so much for allowing us to share some of our favorites!! Anyway my second choice is this one: https://thechickengrandma.wordpress.com/2016/10/28/friendships-and-tea-sets/. I think I like this one because it is about friendships that are real. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

    • StephJ | 11th Dec 16

      Your welcome! I hope you are enjoying the party. Checking out this post now 🙂

  76. letahawk | 11th Dec 16

    So sorry, I meant to get back here and post another link. It’s been a crazy day of getting ready for our family party tomorrow. I’ve read some wonderful blog posts today, and I look forward to reading more.
    Here’s another post of mine that tells a little about some of the local legends that played into my paranormal mystery books. https://letaphawk.wordpress.com/2016/10/12/the-stuff-of-legends/

    • StephJ | 11th Dec 16

      Thanks for making it back. This is such a busy time of year!

    First, I’m enjoying this party. So many talent writers. It motivates me to write more. Second, here is my third post for the party, which is in regards to love at first sight. Is Love at First Sight a Real Thing? | David Speaks
    https://dharris21blog.wordpress.com/2016/09/20/is-love-at-first-sight-a-real-thing/
    Third, I currently have the free plan for WordPress. Do you think I should change it to the personal plan or premium plan?

    • StephJ | 11th Dec 16

      Hi David! Thanks for sharing another great post! Keep writing and keep sharing your words with the world 😊 I have the free plan on WordPress also has been getting me by so far. I might upgrade sometime it has many benefits but for a hobby/casual blog the free one seems pretty good.

      • dharris21blog | 11th Dec 16

        Good to know. I was thinking my blog looked simple, but really I’m just happy when people read my stuff.

        • StephJ | 11th Dec 16

          You can play around with different themes or personalize it more. YouTube probably has loads of video help on it. But I too have thought about spicing mine up a bit.

I have all kinds of pieces on my blog and this one was from the month of October. It’s nowhere near a Christmas feel good story so hopefully you’re not expecting that. 🙂
    I am loving this! Hopefully you guys are having as much fun as I am.

  81. thechickengrandma | 11th Dec 16

    This has really been a wonderful experience. I’m starting early, or late, however you see it, and am posting my last link. I’m an amateur baker and thought I’d try my hand at food blogging.

Can’t wait to read more from everyone else!

  91. OrchidsAndSweetTea | 11th Dec 16

    Hi Everyone! It’s great to meet you. Happy Sunday!! My name is Shanika and my blog is called “Orchids + Sweet Tea”. I was inspired to create this name because of my love for Orchids, which represent love, luxury, beauty and strength. The other part of my name is derived from my Southern roots and growing up always loving sweet tea! So my blog represents all of those elements and includes recipes, inspirational quotes, motherhood testimonials, interior decorating, and more! One of my favorite pieces was a Daily photo challenge that I did and I feel that it is universal to everyone. I hope to meet and follow many of you! Thanks!

        Yay!!! Perfect! 😁
        I’m thinking about hosting one this month, but it would be my first one and I am not really sure about it 😖

        • StephJ | 18th Dec 16

          Go for it! The best tip in hosting one is sent out the invite a week before that give you time to get people aware of when and where.

          • SerendipiDIY | 18th Dec 16

            Awesome I really want to try! Thanks for the tip Steph!
