Days of Thanksgiving Favorites

As many of you know, my other blog, It’s A Blog Party, was started to celebrate bloggers and all that they have to offer!  My husband, Doug and I, share the duties of “Celebrating Blogland“. Doug has been helping me ALOT with it lately, and has taken over all of the posting! Thanks honey!!

During the last few weeks, we hosted a Days of Thanksgiving Party, and had 120 bloggers add their awesome Thanksgiving recipes, decorating and other ideas. As part of the feature during holiday parties, we have voting enabled and let the readers vote for their favorites and then we highlight those favorites.

There was an overwhelming response to the #1 favorite! Tammy from Not Just Paper and Glue, had 62 votes! Way to go Tammy!!

Let me explain a little how that happened and why it’s a great thing…Tammy had a line in her post asking her readers to visit the Days of Thanksgiving Party and vote for her entry. Why is that good?

  • It’s good for Tammy because she has now been seen by almost 3000 Hoosier Homemade readers and also the Blog Party readers
  • and it’s good for Blog Party because then they grow as well

It’s all part of the way we help each other to grow our blogs…it’s savvyblogging!

Now for the other favorites, just like our Halloween Bash Favorites, there was 1 blogger that had several entries, and myself that had a couple. Since we are all about celebrating bloggers, I still wanted to feature 10 blogs, excluding my own (cause that’s not really fair)…
