What is the 2011 Review Extravaganza?
write up some posts and recap what happened during the year.
favorite pictures,
favorite stories,
favorite posts,
whatever you want.
ESPECIALLY if it's your birthday.
HOW:
Starting next Friday, come here or to any of the other bloggers hosting this extravaganza (who I will list here soon) and link up your post.
You only need to link up at one location as it will show up on each of the lists.

WHEN:
Friday the 9th, you will link up with your recap about January, February and March.
Friday the 16th-link up with recap of April, May and June.
Friday the 23rd-link up with recap of July, August and September.
Friday the 30th-link up with recap of October, November and December.

LINK WHAT???
that just means you copy and paste the html web page for the post your wrote into the linky box that will be on the bottom of my weekly review posts.
email me at emilygibson82@yahoo.com for more info

EXTRA'S:
You DO NOT have to write your post on Friday,
you can write it any day that week,
that is just the day to link up.
And you will have a few extra days to link up- until Wednesday.
When you link up, make sure you put a link to your post and not just your blog in general. ((To do this, just click on the title of your post and then you can copy all that www gibberish that is in your browser bar))

HOW YOU GET THE FREE STUFF:
Every time you link up with a recap AND include the cute little button you will get entered into the drawing.
Link up on the 9th and get an entry,
the 16th and get another entry, etc.,
with a total of 4 possible entries.
When all is said and done,
we will let random.org do the dirty work and pick a winner and what will you win?

So it's time for recaps again, huh? I've never quite managed to get that one done...It's hard for me to go back over all that stuff and organize it into any sort of cogent post.

Having said that, I think it's a great idea!

And I do wish you a happy birthday, too!!

=)
