You’re Invited to an Online Baby Shower!

It’s not too often that I post something completely personal on my blog, so I hope you don’t mind the interruption to your usual blogging and social media tips!

Just in case we’re not connected on Facebook, I wanted to invite you to a unique event. My husband and I are expecting our first baby blogger this December. Since our friends and family are spread out throughout the world, we have decided to against tradition and throw an online baby shower! And since I count many of my readers as friends, I wanted to make sure you were invited!

The event is set up on Facebook. If you didn’t receive a direct invitation, just click the Join button at the top of the event page and you’re in!

The Plan

For the next several weeks, we will be holding various baby-related trivia games on the events page. There will be one grand prize trivia game near the end, the winner of which will receive a 16″x24″ (width may vary depending on photo chosen) print compliments of Jason Hines Fine Art Photography!

The Presents

We’ve got lots of clothes and bedding sets already, but we’re still in need of the little things: cloth diapers, pacifiers, bottles, toys, bath stuffs, and other odds and ends. If you’d like to get us something, we’re registered at Babies R’US and Amazon. Please order by September 30th so they arrive before the online party! And note that you are welcome to join the event with or without sending a gift! :)

The Favors

I have two eBooks on the way – a fresh update to the Blog Post Promotion Guide due out in mid-September and a social media eBook (title TBA) due out in October. Anyone who sends a baby gift gets their choice of one of these eBooks when they are released PLUS a mention on Kikolani and my personal blog! And for anyone who wants to send me their mailing address, I’d love to send you a handwritten thank you too!

The Online Party

On October 13th at 2PM EST, we will host an online Google+ hangout where we open presents and say thanks to all of the awesome folks who have helped us celebrate the addition to our family!

Even if you can’t attend the hangout, you can still join the event on Facebook, especially if you’re into silly baby trivia games. My husband and I hope you can join us to celebrate! Please email me if you have any questions!
