Who's Up for a Party?

I had an idea recently that I've kind of been on the fence about, so I figured I'd get some opinions on it before I made a decision. Last May's Muse Party Blogfest was a lot of fun and honestly, a much bigger success than I thought it would be. At the end of last year I wanted to do a Christmas themed one, but with the new job I just didn't have the time or energy to plan it. So I figured I would just do it again in May for my next blog anniversary. But then I realized it would be hard to come up with new questions for people to answer, and that would just be boring. So having a theme would help.

Well, Valentine's Day is next month. While I actually can't stand Valentine's Day, it just so happens that my anniversary with my muse happens to be the next day. So I thought, what better time to have a muse party? You've got a holiday and an anniversary all rolled into one! While I know I would actually like to do it, I don't know if I actually should. So I've been thinking about the pros and cons:

Pros:
- Obviously, I can come up with Valentine's Day questions which would make this different from the previous muse party
- It would be on Monday the 15th and I have that day off from work so I would actually have time to do it and visit everyone else doing it
- That day is my fifth anniversary with Jordan, so another reason to celebrate (I guess...)
- I still have over a month to pimp it out and get signups!
- I have all day tomorrow off to put a post together with the questions and signup list
- My linky list subscription is still good so I wouldn't have to pay for it :D

Cons:
- Well, it would be Valentine's Day themed but actually be the day after Valentine's Day
- It also happens to be President's Day and I know some people don't blog on holidays

Well, ok, not too many cons, so it seems kind of obvious, doesn't it? I'm just not sure if it's something that people would actually want to do, so that's kind of the point of this post. Let me know if you think it's a good idea and you'd want to join in and I will definitely put this together. If not, I'll probably just take a nap.

  1. I have a short post planned that Monday, so I'd be able to add this blog hop to it... ;)

  3. Sounds like a good and fun idea to me! Five years with your muse is awesome. Definitely worth a celebration!

  4. Five years and you're still "talking." That means things are working out. I've bowed out of most hops for a while. I just can't do them and work and write. Good luck with it!

  5. There are a couple of Valentine blog fests coming up anyway, maybe they would all fit together

  6. I don't typically post on Mondays. In fact, I've been debating slowing down to two posts a month. (Shhh! Don't tell anyone.) Life gets crazy, eh?

  7. I've seen a bunch of Valentine's Day blogfests already going up. Yet anniversaries are fun to celebrate. Our muses like the recognition too! :)

  8. I like blogfests because you always learn a little bit about your friends through them. I always blog Mondays and it seems the most popular day to do so.

  9. It sounds fun, though I don't know if I'll be able to participate. It is a holiday, meaning computer access will be near zilch. (The kids don't like it when Mama spends time on her computer.) I'd hate to post something and not be able to reciprocate.

  10. I'd play. I had a great time last year :-) Depending on how the dice roll that weekend, I might be a little slow on the visiting everyone, but I could promise a post on the day and visits over the next week.

  12. I think it sounds like fun! I wish I had a muse; if I do have one I think that he/she has left me for someone else. :)
