BULLETIN: Meant to tell you I’ll post December’s word tomorrow.
I’ve hosted four virtual blog parties at my house and I’ve loved them all. Now that we’ve established these events as a lively and congenial way to gather now and then, I think it’s time to take the next step to keep our parties exciting. I believe it needs to move around from host to host and maybe become a lasting tradition.
Joy Acey Frelinger and Matt Forrest Esenwine were the original creative drive behind my decision to have the first party so I turned to them for new advice. Matt graciously agreed to host this next event at his place two weeks from today on Friday, December 15. I’m delighted to pass the baton into such capable hands and I know that Matt will count on Joy for her always valuable ideas.
Matt is making the announcement today on his blog at https://mattforrest.wordpress.com so please go there for further information and make your plans to attend the party on the 15th. Matt, many thanks for agreeing to be the second host. I hope we’ll see many others step forward in the future.
As anyone knows who has ever hosted a party — virtual or otherwise — it takes some work to prepare and to see to your guests as they arrive. One big item is getting out the guest list! I’ve assured Matt that I’ll invite everyone I always have and I hope you’ll pitch in to help too. The more peeps, the more party!
And one last thing. Thank you very much for coming to my virtual events and making them so much fun. It has been a privilege.
