The Ultimate Pinterest Party

Last week, we had another terrific Pinterest Party!

The Ultiimate Pinterest Party from The Ultimate Linky every Saturday morning.
Last week was the best week ever for repins! I went over to the board Sunday morning, and it looked like everything had been repinned at least once, and many had seven or more repins! You are the ones that make this party awesome! Thanks for taking the time to repin!
DIY No Sew Bench Cushions by Old House to New Home had the most pins ever so far for this party!
It had 7 pins from my board, but easily a couple hundred repins. I stopped counting at 131 repins, and there were still about 30 pins I had to click on to see if people had repinned from them!

And the following NINE pins had at least 7 re-pins: The number in parenthesis is how many re-pins they had total due to the party.
Amanda Paxton from Old House to New Home and Kristina and Millie from 2Crochet Hooks are co-hosting this party this month! Now that there are two to three of us pinning every Saturday morning, we can pin a lot of pins, so please share!

So let's get to this week's party!

Here are the directions or rules:
  • Follow your host and co-hosts on Pinterest. (Click "Follow All" and then go back and unfollow individual boards if you don't want to see some of our pins):

  • I will send out an email to everyone that has participated in this party or is linked up for the day at 8:00 a.m. EST reminding you to come link up or to go pin the pins. There will be a link to the party in case you haven't linked up and there will be a link to the Pinterest board.
  • 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.

Here are our co-hosts for this month!!

Amanda from Old House to New House is our permanent co-host!
Tara from My Anything and Everything and Margaret from The World as I See It will be our co-hosts for the next 4 weeks. We are looking for co-hosts for the last 4 weeks in August starting with August 8!
Cohosts--The Ultimate Party
Here is what we ask of our co-hosts:
  • Check in several times for at least half of Friday (from 9-1 or from 1-5) and comment, +1, and share posts with our hashtag.
  • Run the post on their blog. We will give the co-hosts the html for the post.
How does this benefit a co-host?
  • We would ask for everyone to follow them on Google+.
  • They are linked up automatically right after the hosts.
  • They get to know other bloggers.
  • They get a link back in many of the hosts' blogs.
  • If you would like to be considered for being a co-host, please email Tammy@theultimatelinky(dot)com or contact us on The Ultimate Party page.
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. We would also appreciate if you only used our hashtag on Fridays. This will discourage spammers from using our hashtag. We would appreciate it if you followed all the co-hosts above and the hosts, Tammy from My Life Abundant, Elizabeth from Positive Kismet, and Kim from KidPep on Google+ and any other social media that you would like to follow us on. The cohosts and hosts are the first 7 people linked up below, so it is easy to follow us 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?

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!
