Newbies recap of 2011! Newbies need to shine too!

Hey there! while we are at it...I thought I would feature the newbies of 2011 most viewed links.  This took me a bit to go through, but here are the top 11 one for each month!
My Newbie party 1st year anniversary is in January.
So let's take a trip down memory lane...

# 1
Pam's kitchen island makeover was the most viewed post at that party.

I was kinda sad going through the links.
A lot of newbies gave up, and are no longer blogging.
I am happy all my features are still blogging away!

Next my friend Dawn, whom I met of course through the newbie party are still good blogging buds.

She is still going strong too..and a very near and dear gal and friend.

Ann, a another dear, who still tells me all the time how much she misses this party.


another fantastic girl!
I sure am a lucky duck to have made such awesome friendships too!


She rocks, that sums it up!



How ironic, she is number 8 on the list, and her project has the number 8..hmmmm.




 #12 too be featured next week.

WOW, that was some recap of the Newbie year.
Funny thing... I noticed  some of the party links {let me clarify, none that I featured here}
are still participating, even though you have met your 100 and are past 6 months.
NOW, ladies and gents, I am NOT the newbie police, just the host....I really do not want to see that.
It takes a lot of time and effort for newbies,to link up and create posts.
Let's keep the party what it is. Newbies 6 months or less, and/or less than 100 followers.
Oh, and there were others I could have featured that were most viewed, however, you did not have my button or link. Sorry, that's a bummer.
Don't forget to add the hosts link OR BUTTON..TO YOUR POSTS.
Thank you:)

Feel free to add my crow button to you blog.

Really! I just came by to see the recaps, and saw that I was included. I have to say that being a part of the Newbie Party is one of my fondest memories this past year. I met so many blogland friends, including yourself. Graduating was bittersweet. Looking forward to checking in to see the new newbies in 2012.

Hi Debbie,

Oh how I love surprises! I have to say your link parties were my most favorite. It was a sad day to not be able to link up. I've made so many wonderful friends along the way. In my book you’re the sweetest!

Thanks so much for adding me to your Newbie Recap.

:(:( *sniff *sniff...there was NO Newie parties when I started. You made me totally realize that I am no longer a "newbie" and haven't been for...I don't even remember. I think I started back in December 2008 or something like that.

What a nice gesture for those just getting off the ground!
I will say this..perhaps there was no party for us but...there was an awful lot of help from other bloggers with more experience. Had it not been for some of them..I would not have stayed. It is so easy to get discouraged.

The newbies are in wonderful hands..because bloggers are just the dearest and kindest people I have ever met!

Thanks, Debbie, for being one of them!
Happy New Year, my friend!

Wow, Debbie! I was so surprised to see my bedroom was the most viewed in October! I still haven't quite finished the room yet - seems like life keeps getting in the way! ;o) I want to thank you so much for the support you give all of us newbies. Your link party was the very first one I attended and I really miss it! I'm a big believer in "paying it forward" and you do that so well. Blessings to you and your family in 2012 and beyond! xo Suzy

Thanks for the feature girlfriend! Have you ever thought about some sort of 2011 Newbie reunion linky party?
Maybe have anyone who graduated from your party link up? I think it would be a blast...just an idea. Here's hoping 2012 is wonderful for you and your guys. Happy New Year!
