The Ultimate Party Week #43

Welcome back to The Ultimate Party in 2015!

Bloggers, don’t forget about the free 2015 Blog Planner for you to download and you can read about it in my latest post.  It really keeps me organized for the year.  You will find the download link there also.

A few of us is having a Fantabulous Valentines Day Favorites linky and we would love for you to come by and link up your favorite Valentines posts.  I have a wonderful Love You More printable to share.

The Ultimate Party Week #43

I have had so much time on my hands since hubby started a full time job.  So, what do I do?  I start cleaning like a crazy woman and I started with my office closet.  I didn’t do anything really fancy and wasn’t going to spend a lot of money on items to make it look really special.  Actually I bought some baskets at Dollar General Store, but its organized and I can finally find things in it now.

My Favorite Post from Last Weeks Party


These are just adorable Valentines Cupcake ideas from Sparkling Shoes Girl.  I love the cupcake holders.  Be sure to visit her site and check out how to do this.

Now on to the party!

We would love to have more co-hosts for this party! We are looking for people that already participate in this party to co-host for 1-4 weeks at a time. We would ask for you to be available for at least half of the day (8-2 or 2-7 EST) where you could get on periodically and comment, +1, and share posts. Your link would be right after the hosts on the linky, and we would ask that everyone follow you on G+. If you would like to be considered to be a co-host, please contact Tammy from The Ultimate Linky HERE or let us know on The Ultimate Party Google+ page.


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. We will leave the linky open until 9 p.m. for the West Coast bloggers and for those who work during the day. Kim will hang out with you in the evening as many of your hosts live in the EST/CST time zones and have to be off our computers at that time. Please link up as early as possible so that you get the most interaction on your posts.
  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. Most parties you follow people and never interact. Here you get to see who has the same interests/niche as you do!
  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 and see who we feature during 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. You would say something like, “Try out my family’s favorite Easter pie. It’s the best pie ever! Go here to see the recipe: http://theultimatelinky/ . . . Pin it for later: . . .) #theultimateparty” 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!

  1. Hi Tammy, You sure did a job on your office very nice.
    I tried to reach you by email but it will not go through so I will try here.
    Hi Tammy, it’s Kathleen from I saw on Google+ that you were having server problems, I did have to try twice to get here today.
    I am probably telling you things you already know. I also have been having problems, I am with BlueHost. My site was so slow and timing out before it got to pages etc. I signed up to it is a free service and they send you a report if your site is not operating properly. In two days they reported 8 times my website was not reachable. I sent their reports to Blue Host who got back to me this morning and said that the problems were on their server due to certain users causing it. They felt that the problem was solved now.
    Any way maybe that will give you some ideas to help your situation. It is not good for our analytics. 🙁
    God bless,

    1. Thank you so much Kathleen for letting me know about this. I’m hoping things will get better soon and I plan on using the service you told me about. I will let you know what happens next.
