Blogger Swap (now closed)

Wow~ what a turnout for the swap!  A big thanks to all who helped spread the word.  I'm closing it off now so that we can get started with the fun part.  There are just shy of 70 bloggers participating in this swap (!), including four from Canada who will be swapping amongst themselves.  Over the coming days I'll be working on emailing everyone individually with information about the person whom they'll be sending their goodies to.  If you have yet to email me with your mailing address and blog information please do so as soon as possible.  I will put a link to all of the blog swap posts on the left sidebar of the blog, so you can all access them easily when you want/need to.  I debated doing one of those linky thingamajiggers, but, well..... I just didn't feel like paying for it and I'm not all that tech savvy.  So a link in the sidebar it is.  Please feel free to leave comments linking to your own posts regarding the swap so that we can all follow along with each other.  Also, I occasionally (ahem) make mistakes.  If you look over the list and links below and see anything amiss (or think you're supposed to be on the list but you aren't there- gosh, I hope that didn't happen) please don't hesitate to contact me and let me know.  I want to have your information correct.

And so... (do-do-do-dooooo!) without further ado, here is a link to each participant's blog.  Go and visit each other!  I'll know who gets me (since I'm drawing the names), but for everyone else it's a fun little secret~

    1. jenny- not sure if you know this but you're the one who first put this idea into my head after I posted about my last swap here at the house. something along the lines of "I wonder if we could do something online....... wouldn't that be fun?......." INDEED!

  11. 27 states! And two provinces, too! THANK YOU, Amanda! :)

    1. a decent turnout, I'd say! ;)

  12. I would love to know who the New York bloggers are. Any chances you could share that? Thanks.


    1. hi Janet~ out of the five NY blogs, only two of them freely share that info on their 'about' pages, so those are the only ones I feel comfortable sharing. they are: happiness come in little bits, and living & loving (they are both near the bottom of the link list). I know that may seem silly, but I don't want to give away personal info that isn't mine~ cheers, Amanda

    2. I understand. Thanks :)


thanks for taking the time to read and comment~
