Let's Party and Rock the Row!

For everyone who wondered about my fascination with the A Round of Words in 80 Days challenge, here's your opportunity to find out more about this wonderful group. Stop by and enjoy the fun with the ROW80 gang.


The party is coming! The party is coming! On October 5th, the #ROW80 hashtag is going to light up like the stage at a teen rock concert. There's going to a be a 24-hour celebration for:
  • All the participants who just finished Round 3 of ROW80.
  • Anyone who plans to post their goals and dive into Round 4.
  • The amazing people who supported the ROW80 writers throughout the year (y'all REALLY deserve a drink!)

Party Details:
  • Theme: "Rock the Row"
    However you want to work that in is great. I leave it to your outrageously creative imagination!
  • Date: October 5th, 12:01 AM to 11:59 PM ET in the U.S.
    This also happens to be the first day of check-in so there should be a ton of ROW80 fun happening around the blogosphere.
  • Party will be held at the #ROW80 hashtag.
    Fire up your Tweet Deck or HootSuite and let's get jiggy with it.
  • Photo Competition:
    You can start now...we won't tell. Start digging for or taking photos that reflect the theme. We'll do our best to gather them and decide on the best to spotlight in a post at the ROW80 blog. Once the readers vote, the 1st place winner gets a copy of Kait Nolan's latest book, Red, in e-book format!!
  • Friendly Blog Competition
    We will also post a mash-up of favorite ROCK THE ROW posts at the Row80 blog.
Jenny Hansen is developing some polls ready so everyone can vote on these things. :-)

There's also going to be dancing! Jenny made a "Rock The Row" playlist! All these details can be found at her ROW80 post. Co-host Nicole Basaraba's post can be found here.
What is a Twitter party?
This is where we all stop in to the #ROW80 hashtag all day long and play and party together - trading news, pictures, music and jello shots. It's going to be a great time!
Don't forget to sign up for the ROW 80 challenge. Wrap up 2011 with writing style! The fun begins Wednesday, October 5.

Love the pic as I've always wanted to learn to play guitar. That is a challenge for another day. See you at the ROW party!

Looking forward to the party! I may need to borrow my son's electric guitar.

As an added bonus to the party-fun, there are extra prizes being given away at my blog, thanks to fellow ROW80er, Alberta Ross.

That's great, Nicole. I'm going to hop over and check it out. Will be partying later after Mom duty!
