Autumn officially starts this month so that means colder days, longer nights and preparations for Halloween and Christmas! But before we get wrapped up in cosy blankets, it’s time for our latest blog party here at Later Levels. There’s no better way to celebrate the start of the weekend as well as meet some new blogging friends and read their awesome posts.
The rules are simple:
🎉 Arrive at the party: don’t be shy and stand in the corner – say hello and introduce yourself in the comments below! Give an introduction to your blog to welcome new readers and let us know what you’re all about.
🎉 Present your gift: think about the posts you’ve written during the past three months and choose your favourite or one which was fun to write. Leave a link to it in your comment and explain why you’ve picked it.
🎉 Get the conversation going: so many video games yet nothing to play! Help me find some new titles to pique my interest and kill my gamers' block by telling everyone what you’re playing right now and the upcoming release you’re most looking forward to.
🎉 Be sociable: grab yourself a drink, put on a party hat and get to know your fellow guests! Check back on the comments throughout the day to discover excellent sites and meet new bloggers.
🎉 Party all day: the comments below will be open for 24-hours until 06:00 GMT on Tuesday, 17 September 2019 so you’ve got plenty of time to meet and greet. Plus your posts will be shared on the Later Levels' social media channels!
These blog party events are my way of giving something back to the amazing WordPress community and showing my appreciation for all of your support. I've had the opportunity to meet some lovely people and talented writers over the past three years; here’s a little thank you and a way of finding some awesome blogs you may not have come across already.
Last time we beat the record number of posts shared in a single event, hitting 36 articles and 348 comments. Can we beat it yet again? Enjoy, and excuse me while I grab a controller so I can join in with the fun!
