Announcing... *Drum roll*!!!!


 Okay ya'll, I am so so SO excited to be announcing this.  So here we go......................................



   Announcing...*drum roll please*....


The "A Year of Pink!" Celebration! 


    This October 22nd will be the one year anniversary of (Almost) Perfectly Pink!  So, in honor of that, I am announcing the "A Year of Pink" Celebration.  I've got a ton of posts planned. Here's an overview:

 1} A Q&A Video
 2} Posts about my blog and what I plan to do with it
 3} Polls
 4} A "Post Competition" to decide which of my post(s) were the most liked of the year!
 5} The PINK Challenge! (You all will do this one!)
 6} Special Tacit Tuesday surprises!
 7} A Makeup Video!
  And more!!

  This event starts October 1st, and will go until the end of the month.  I am so excited about this!  This is very much a group effort, and I would love if you would all participate!  I'll post about each of these separately, and tell you all about them, so don't worry. =)

  The biggest event that calls for participation is the PINK Challenge!  The idea is to post about things pink.  If writing is your thing, then maybe write a short story of poem, either using as many "P" words as you can, or about something pink.  If photography is more your thing, then take pictures of pink things!  If you like to bake, maybe post a recipe for pink cookies!  Use your imagination!  The possibilities are endless!  This event will be starting soon. =)

   I hope you guys are as excited about this as I am!  There will be buttons/banners to keep things organized, and please post them, share them, etc!  Also, if you participate in anyway, you get a "I Participated in the "A Year of Pink" Celebration!" Button, if you'd like. =)

To kick this off, below is the banner for the celebration.  If you plan on doing this, please take this banner using the code, and then put it on your site!  Ask your readers to check out this celebration, I'd love for others to join in the fun!  If you would rather not participate, and just watch from the side lines, that would be fine too! =D

  This is going to be SO much fun, Ya'll! 

Have a great day!

~Jess <3

ps. If you haven't any questions, let me know!  If you have any thoughts, let me know!  If you want to talk about puppies, tell me your favorite color, or rave about how much you love purple monkeys, also let me know! ;)

Yah!!! =D I knew that you would have god creative ideas ;) Well, I wasn't going to have a winner, because I want everyone to just have fun with it, but I was trying to think of some sort of prize thing, just to make it more special.

    1. P.S. I tryed putting the banner on my blog and the photo was WAY to big, you probably need to go back, correct the size and make a new code, sorry. =P

    2. Awh, thank you!!! =D Oh, I'm glad, I like how it turned out too! Awh. =) Oh, okay, you aren't the only one that said that. I'll try to fix it. You tried putting in IN a post, and not just on the sideline of your blog, right? =) <3

    3. Its so pink and perfect! (Pun intended this time Jess. ;) I put it into a post and it worked fine but it has a code under it so I thought you meant for it to go on the blog, like at the bottom.

      Delete
    4. Haha, thanks =) no, I put a code under it so that when some one clicked on it in your post, it went to my blog. See, if you had just copied and pasted the picture, there was no way for them to actually get to my blog. Do I had to put a code, and make it like a button. Make sense? Lol I'm going to try to explain it better in today's post.

    5. Yes, that makes sence. How come I keep understanding things that really shouldn't make sence. ;)

    6. Haha! Ah, that's okay. At least there are two of us ;) <3

  6. Oh, I'm so excited about this! I can't promise I'll do the writing challenge. Every time I say I'll do something like that, I forget. BUT I will try to think of something. Can't wait for your Q&A video. I'm so happy your blog's been going on for a year:)
    In Christ,

    1. Oh, good! Haha, I know, I'm the exact same way. Okay. Hopefully there will be enough posts to keep you reminded, and you can do it anytime on your own blog, once it starts. If you never get around it to, though, that's fine. =) Awh, thank you! <3

  13. Hey! Sorry for commenting so many times... :P But I tried to put the banner on my blog and it was way too big... just letting you know! :D

    1. Haha, that's fine!! I don't mind a bit ;) It is only made a go on in a post, not as a button on the side bar. And then click on the picture and change the size to large rather than original size. I'm explaining it in the Tacit Tuesday post =) Thank you for telling me!

      Delete
  14. Wow! This is so exciting!!!!! I'm gonna try to do the Pink Challenge. I'll probably do some posts on fashion, themed around the color pink :) Would that be okay? I also plan on taking some pics.

    1. I'm so glad you think so!! Awesome! OH! That is an amazing idea!!! See, I didn't even think of that! That was totally what I was hoping for; people to take my basic idea and add their own twist to it. I CANNOT wait to see your post! =)

  15. Wow! I just added the banner to my blog, it's WAY too big! Could you please fix?

    1. Okay, make sure you are adding it to a post, and not just to your blogs sidebar. And then click on the picture, and change the size to LARGE, rather than the ORIGINAL SIZE. I'll explain it in my next Tacit Tuesdays post =) Thank you for telling me!

    1. Haha, Thank you for asking, I don't want to be misunderstood! =) The "Year of Pink Celebration" starts October 1st. I will post about EVERY "event," telling you guys exactly how it works, if there is a deadline, the rules, how to enter, etc, etc. I will have a complete and separate post for everything going on, so you never have to worry. The PINK Challenge starts in a couple of days, don't worry, I'll let you know when it does. =) Thank you for asking!

    2. Oh, okay! :) I didn't want to wait, and miss out of anything either, so I'd thought I'd ask. :) I can't wait to see it all!
