Why do I party? I'll be honest. The main reason is to show off my stuff. However, it is a wonderful way to:
- find other blogs and bloggers with a common interest
- find ideas and inspiration
When I started my own Link Parties, Threading Your Way with Threading My Way, I wanted people to show off their stuff, to be able to look for interesting blogs and to find ideas and inspiration. But I wanted more.
I didn't want them to be forgotten and to disappear after a week or two. I wanted them to be a resource of ideas on the one topic and for that reason, I made them ongoing.
Because each one is on different topic, the number of people interested in each party differs and therefore the number of projects linked up will vary. It's been fascinating to see where the majority of interests lie... totes and girls' clothes being the most popular so far.
As you can see, I'm not choosing themes based on popularity and this will mean that some parties will remain smaller. Perhaps we could call them exclusive... LOL!!!
Even though I do a reasonable amount of refashioning, I won't be hosting an ongoing refashioning / upcycling link party, as there's already an awesome one in existence... Jill, from Creating My Way to Success, hosts Clothes Recycling Projects.
The downside of ongoing themed link parties, is remembering to link up your current (or past) project to a party that was started a while ago. So, here's your reminder... have a look through the link lists and see if you have any projects (old or new), that you are proud of and would like to show off.
I do look through all the parties each week, so rest assured, I will see your project if you link it up. Many of the parties have been pinned numerous times on Pinterest, so chances are, others will see it too.
For those of you who are new to Threading My Way, a new party begins every Sunday, with features on a Saturday. Features come from any of the parties, not just the most recent.
