If you have any preconceived ideas about me warning off spooky stalker types in this post, then I'm very sorry to disappoint, but my life is not that exciting and I don't have any of those... (Well - not that I'm aware of anyway). (And Phew to that!).
... My Dad used to call me a "nosey parker" or a "sticky beak" when I was growing up... Apparently (according to him anyway) the interest that I have in what's going on in other peoples lives makes me a sticky beak.
My version of the story is that I like people & I care about them & what is going on in their lives. End of story.
But you can choose which version you'd like to believe ;) LOL...
Anyway - I've had this idea on the back burner for a little while, and I thought it was about time I told you about it and got the ball rolling.
You may remember one of the many things on my list of things that I want to learn is run a linky party. So let me introduce you to my first proposed linky party....
|That's an Australian Rainbow Lorikeet - pretty hey...|
Now I don't know about you - but I love to get to know my bloggy friends better. I now have bloggy friends from all over the world and it's SOOOOO facinating finding out things about them.
Two interesting facts I found out about friends recently - one of my bloggy friends lives permanently in a mobile home and another lives in Amish country.
Ooooh interesting right?!
So who were they?
Well I guess you'll have to find out if those are things they reveal about themselves in this linky party won't you! ;)
So - how cool would it be for us to all do a feature on where we live to help us get to know about each others locations & cultures better?!
This is how I am imagining it would work:
** over the next week I would generate a master list of questions for us to all answer about where we live (like general stuff about the towns/cities we live - not stuff where any spooky stalker people could find us etc...) and put them all in another post next week
** then we will all have a month to prepare the post. You know - cause we'll need plenty of time to round up photos of all our favourite places & foods (and fabric shops ;) ) etc... etc... and write it...
** Then we will all link up in a linky party on the 17th November.
(Which I will neither confirm nor deny is a special date to me - not that I'm black mailing you to help make the day special to me or anything ;) )
and peruse each others blogs getting to know each other better.
What do you think, - who's in?
And if you are in, then feel free to leave nosey-parker question suggestions in your comment...
(And PS I also was thinking that I'd do another one-off one in December or January for how we each spend Christmas in different parts of the world)
