Country Fair Blog Party: December 16

Blog Hop

It's another great blog party starting!  This is a month long link up. Come on and join us!
 Here are your hosts for the month:
      Jan               Val
                              Tip Garden           Corn, Beans, Pigs, Kids 

2017: What Comes Next?  
Both Val and myself  joined in as co-hosts to share the load with others as a group of bloggers and we now find ourselves just too busy to run it just by ourselves, or alone as individuals.  So very reluctantly,  it has come time to let it go. 

Not totally good bye: I (Jan) am not quite ready to say goodbye just yet!  I am just going to take a breather over the holidays and enjoy my family, and think, but I love hosting blog hops. They are so much work, that I just need a bit more time to decide how best to use my creativity. I'll send out an email inviting you to join in to whatever I dream up! 

Thank you for your support! We have the best bloggers here at Country Fair Blog Party! The friendliest, most caring, and willing to share and uplift each other! Such great people! We are so grateful for you coming back month after month and sharing your life with us. 

I can't wait to collaborate with you in the future!

Country Fair Blog Party

Ready? Get set... Go!


  1. I will certainly be sorry to see the Country Fair come to an end, but I definitely understand. This blog stuff is a lot more work than I ever would have thought, and hosting a party is no different. Thanks for the feature!

    1. Thanks Carlee, I hate seeing it go too! I keep changing my mind every other day, but It's just soooo much work! But we'll see if I just can't stay away! haha.

  2. Bless you are all you do. Thanks for always hosting. You will be missed.

    1. Thanks so much! I hope to come back with something if I can manage the time and work of it!

  3. Jan, I'll be sorry to see it go, but I certainly understand. I've never done it, but I'm sure it's a ton of work! EVERYthing about blogging is a ton of work! :D When I started out nearly 7 years ago, I saw lots of food bloggers posting multiple times a week with lots of photos; so I estimated that I could easily handle once a week with fewer photos. THAT is way more work than I ever imagined! :D

    1. i started out blogging 3 x a week, then went to 2 x and now about 1 x a week. I don't know how I did it for so long!

  4. PS Thank you for featuring my Pumpkin Bundt Cake! I hope people will like my Pecan Tart - Without Corn Syrup. I can't wait to check out the winter canning post!
