Virtual Girls Night Out - I Need Your Input

I'm gonna be honest here, I am astounded at how many Friday Blog-Linky, Blog-Hoppy blogs have come about within the last couple of months. When I started the Virtual GNO in the summer of 2008 there wasn't anything else like it. Now, you have a plethora of blogs to choose from to leave your link and blog-hop your day/night away. My goal was to have blogger's "find each other", to help create new friendships, blog-pals, while having that "night out" experience, virtually. There's tons of incredibly popular link-ups now. Should I pull the curtain on the VGNO? Feedback please.

I'm forging ahead with the VGNO blog-hopping party tonight though! Add you link below and let's go!!!

Get To Know Me!

I want to add a feature to our party and get to know you a little better. Each week I'll spotlight a Virtual GNO guest & their blog, she'll be our VGNO... um... I don't know what the title should be...anyone? Suggestions please :-> Who wants to be in the spotlight? E-mail me at annharrison@comcast.net and we'll get you ready for your close-up. Whose first?!?

Time For Some Tunes!

Colby Caillat "Fallin' For You"

Perfect little summer song. (It's going to be stuck in my head all day!)

Time For A Cocktail!

Baileys Banana Karma
2 oz. Baileys Original Irish Cream
.25 oz. Godiva Mocha Liqueur
.25 oz. Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka
1 splash milk/cream
1 banana
Blend all ingredients together and serve in a parfait glass. Garnish with grated chocolate for that extra special touch.

The extra leg lifts and squats are worth it. Yum!!!

OK friends, let me know if you feel the VGNO is worth saving. Would you like to be in the Virtual GNO "Spotlight"? What should we call our special guest of the week? I really need your feedback and participation, don't I? :->

Have fun blog-hopping!

VGNO Party People!

  1. I am not able to 'play' tonight but I think it's a great idea. I actually am doing a hop for PR reasons but don't care for the lack of personal connection, I am considering withdrawing as well. On Tuesday we do a link up where all you have to do is post 2 sentences, barely anyone did it. Sad, blogging is great, but it's not JUST about the numbers. Having a few neat, interactive relationships make it worth it! www.BreeBee.com Thanks for being an ambassador for the link ups- great idea- some may have ran with it a tad too far :)-

  2. I like VGNo because it's friendly. Some of the others seem all about the networking.

  3. Hey Ann!! I say definitely keep it!! I love stopping by to see what you've been up to! not to mention the fabulous music and cocktail recipes and getting to know all the other peeps that stop by!! I heart you. :D

  4. Nooooo! Do NOT pull the plug. You are the first and you are the best! What would I do without my friday night Ann?
    I love the idea of featuring someone! Maybe you can do something like GNO's Queen for A Night? (You've heard of that old game show Queen for A Day?) And you can offer some sort of tiara logo with GNO and your blog on it? (I think big, clearly) The tiara could be passed from person to person every week. People can keep the blog button in the sidebars. "I was queen for the night at Ann's GNO"?
    (I think I've had too much chocolate today... LOL!)

  5. Please don't quit, Ann! Your blog was the very first one I linked too when I started blogging a year ago. Even though I don't come every friday, I love to drop in when I can. I love Robin's idea, I was also thinkin of calling the person/blog your interviewing VGNO-VIP. But the tiara sounds like much more fun!

  6. I've never been about formal blog hopping, bu really appreciate finding new, interesting blogs. yous, it's a keeper!

  7. I absolutely LOVE this feedback!!! It's like our own little VGNO conference. (Ah... can you imagine? Wouldn't that be fantastic!)

  8. Don't you dare pull the plug! Your blog was one of the first I followed when starting & I have made SO many amazing friends thru GNO! I always stop by though during the summer we are so busy! ( typing this from iPhone at our beach house... No Internet)... But see... I'm still here!!!

  9. BTW where did the heart rock go? :)

  10. Unfortunately the heart rock got lost at a blogger's home. I would check in with them but didn't get a response.

    I think there was a family situation and our VGNO heart rock was lost in the process. *sniff*
