The Ultimate Pinterest Party!

Welcome back to The Ultimate Pinterest Party!

Come link up two pins to The Ultimate Pinterest Party to get them repinned on Saturday morning!

I had a bunch of favorites from last week! These two really stood out though!

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup -Crocktober Week 4.  This comforting soup has all your favorite Tex-Mex flavors from chicken enchiladas with tons of soup topping options. Throw this in your crockpot, walk away, and come back to a family favorite soup night. #glutenfree and can be #vegetarian or #vegan The Ultimate Pinterest Party 23

One Pan Enchilada Pasta The Ultimate Pinterest Party 23

 The following pins received the most re-pins by Sunday afternoon:

Apple Pie Pinwheel Cookies by Old House to New Home (that's me, woohoo!!) received 10 pins just on our party board with another 13 re-pins from those 8 pins!                  apple pie pinwheel cookies 

The following  Halloween pins all received 7 re-pins each!

                        featured posts from week 24

Please read!!

  1. Link to a PIN, not a post!!  Make sure you only link up *2 pins.*  We will delete any pins after the first 2 pins.
  2. Before you link up the pin, click on the pin and make sure it takes you to your post, not your home page.
  3. PLEASE remember to go pin other people's pins FROM THE ULTIMATE PINTEREST BOARD on SATURDAY MORNING  (not tonight from the linky).  Do not link up if you do not have the time to re-pin.
  4. Please re-pin (not like) at least 3 pins for every pin that you link up.  Liking does not boost the pins.  If you want to like some after you re-pin 3 pins, that is fine.
  5. Please link up pins that are new to our party.  (Do not link up the same pin that you have already linked up a previous week.  They will not be repinned.)
  6. PLEASE SHARE!  I think this party could be awesome, but we need to have you get out the word!  That being said, we only want people to link up who will come back and pin on Saturday!  You can share on all the social medias (facebook, google+, etc.) but  here is a Twitter button to make it easy!

Now let's get to our party!

  • We will start pinning at 8:30 a.m. EST Saturday morning.  We will pin until they are all pinned.
  •  If you know that you do not have the time to re-pin pins on Saturday, then DO NOT LINK UP!
  • I can decide to not pin a pin if it goes against my beliefs or against the rules of this party.

 Welcome to The Ultimate Party on G+!

Why do we do a G+ party at all, and why do we do it on Fridays?

  1. Posting on G+ helps with SEO optimization.
  2. Posting on G+ helps  your posts get ranked higher in Google's search engine.
  3. Friday is supposed to be the best time for interaction on G+, specifically between 11a.m. - 2 p.m. and 7 - 10 p.m
  4. To help you gain more followers on G+.  (We'll have a G+ circle that we share every week for those who link up.)
  5. To interact with and get to know other bloggers.
  6. BECAUSE IT'S FUN!!  Why do a party if it isn't going to be fun?
 Please tell your blogging friends about this party as the more people that participate means that your posts get boosted more!  Plus almost every week, we make a circle for only those who participated in that week's party.  It's an easy way to grow your circles and get your posts boosted and maybe pinned all at the same time

Now let's party!

Thank you for linking up and joining our party.  We will remind people to link up every single Friday as it helps us know who is participating in our party, and which people are being by spammers by just using the hashtag #theultimateparty.
Please follow all the co-hosts above and the hosts,  +Tammy Doiel from Creative K Kids, +Tammy A from My Life Abundant, +Kim P from KidPep, +Amanda Paxton from Old House to New House and +Paula Kumert from Paula-Buenos Aires on Google+ and any other social media that you would like to follow us on.    The hosts are the first 5 people linked up below, so it is easy to follow us on G+.

Here is a little extra information for this party:

  1. You can follow our G+ page (The Ultimate Party) if you want to see our updates!    Also, if you follow our page, we will invite you every week to our party "event" so that you will be reminded of the party!
  2. If you wish, you can follow our Pinterest board called The Ultimate Party where all of your hosts can pin your great posts.
  3. Optional:  You can include your pin URL that coincides with your post on G+ so that others can pin it if they want to do so.   If you repin the pin, please try to remember to include the hashtag #theultimateparty in the pin description.
  4. We would love it if you grabbed our button!

I also would love any tweets you could do to help spread the word about this party! The more people that come, the more your posts will be boosted!

Baked Pizza Roll Ups

Its that time again when my contributor post goes live on PinkWhen.Com! This month I have a great recipe, Baked Pizza Roll Ups! These are one of our favorite snacks before dinner or when we need a light lunch. They are quick, use lightened up ingredients, and are kid-friendly. The best part of all though is that they taste like a Pizza Hut Breadstick and a Mozzarella Cheesestick had a baby...which is the perfect combination, in case you are wondering.

Please check out the post for the full recipe HERE!
