Bloggers 411; LINK UP Details

I know you haven't heard much from me since Monday... but I've been working the past two nights and have had some important scheduled posts lined up {like this one}!  Tomorrow will be Thursday Randoms... so I'm sure I will have tons of life updates for you all. Including, of course, pictures.

Okay okay... here's one picture for you... what we have been doing a lot of lately.
Today, Elliana and I are going to make a two hour drive to meet up with a couple blogger girls and their kiddos. I'll reveal more on that later. For now? I must figure out how I go about packing our whole life in the car....just in case we have meltdown city.

So, read the details of the one time link up scheduled for Next Tuesday and get your posts ready!

One of my favorite things to do on blogs is to find out about the person. Who they are. What they do. What they like. And what they don't like.

Because, by finding more about them, I feel like I can connect better with their writing and what they have to say.

Often times, it's hard to find that specific information that you are looking for. Do you go through all their posts? Do they have a "search" button on their blog? And sometimes, a lot of times, that information just doesn't exist.

Also, I've met some new bloggers recently. Quite a few. Many that I have communicated more via twitter or email. And yet, I still don't know the little things about them. Sometimes, I hate to even admit this, but I forget the important information... like their kid's name. I know.

In addition, I'd like to re-introduce myself again on the blog. Really give you the information all in one post. The 411. The bloggy bff run-down. The basics. The nitty gritty fun stuff.

And so I thought the best way for you to get to know me and each other, and for me to get to know you is to do a little one time link-up where we all give the 411 to our followers. And hope that they too do a 411. So that we can all learn more about one another. So we don't forget the basics, and remember the important details.

So mark your calendars, next Tuesday, I will post my 411 and I hope you post yours too and come back to link-up, hop around, and meet new bloggers who may have more in common with you than you may think.

Share as little are as much as you'd like.

You can either do a random bulletin style post, talking about things that any BFF should know.

Or you are welcome to steal these questions and answer them {I will be answering the questions}
