  14. Thank you so much for this helpful post! How many followers or daily hits do you recommend a blogger have before hosting their first party. I'm a little gun shy because I'd hate to host a link up and have no one link up. :) I'm a newer blogger and don't want to feel silly!

  18. Wow, what a cool blog. I've always wanted to learn about web design, and making a party out of it, how cool! I'm going to try and set up a dedicated server hosting party for cheap. Maybe I'll try including fun games like building a homemade PVC wheelchair, or pin the tale on blind aunt Betty. Thanks again for giving me a good idea here.

  20. I have a question: I want my linky party to be a once a month ongoing thing. So Is the end date- the date you want the whole linky party to end (ex:1yr from now) or the end date for people to get their posts linked? And do I have to create a new one for each monthly posting...or does it do it for me.... Thanks
