I’ll admit that I’m not a fan of big parties.

I’m more of a one-on-one, coffee date, small dinner party type of person when it comes to gatherings. It’s not that I’m shy or dislike large crowds, it’s just that I prefer small intimate settings.

But if I want to try hosting my first blogging event, I have to get over that.

I attended a few blogging parties when I first started on WordPress. It was a wonderful way to discover other bloggers and have great exchanges. For the longest time, I haven’t been getting out on the blogging party scene because I either keep arriving late or when the party is over.

So why not throw my own event?

On Wednesday March 16th, 2016, you are formally invited to “The Shameless Self-Promotion “5 à 7” Blogging Event“!

What’s a “5 à 7“?

In Montreal, “5 à 7” is our sexier way of saying “Happy Hour”. These gatherings occur after work with friends or coworkers and always involves post-work cocktails/mocktails, some “amuse-bouche” appetizers, lots of mingling, laughing, chatting and destressing mid-week. 7:00PM is not the strict cut-off time but it’s just a very loose suggestion otherwise no one may go home!

What is a “Shameless Self-Promotion blogging event“?   The event name speaks for itself but I’ll explain.

I’m not sure why but I sometimes find mini posts/poetry and/or self-promotion messages from others in my spam box. If it’s off-topic to the post or if it has a bunch of links, I usually don’t “Accept”.

Then, I had a thought.

Why not give all of us an opportunity to do what we NEVER do – toot our own horns, shamelessly promote our blogs and explain why we do what we do!!!

If it’s a small turn-out, it’ll be great. If it’s a bigger turn-out, it will be great too.

Keep March 16 in mind and stay tuned for details that I’ll post next Wednesday!

Happy #WriterWednesday Friends!
