FF101. 101. It’s like back to basics, so to speak.
So, allow me to state a few basic requirements to attending Fiesta Friday.
No, I’m not laying down the law or anything like that. I’m just giving reminders. So, here goes:
Number One, it’s a LINK party. Which means you LINK your post to the host(s). It’s the polite thing to do. Remember the golden rule of Internet (or life)? PLAY NICE!
Number Two, it’s a link PARTY. Which means you mix and mingle, just as you would in any PARTY, a’ight?! You visit other bloggers as you get visited by others. You check out what they bring to the party, as they check out yours. In other words, you have fun. It’s a PARTY!
Number Three, Fiesta Friday is a c o m m u n i t y, base word COMMUNE. Which means you “talk and converse with each other intimately”. That’s what the definition of commune is, according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. So, start a conversation, will you? I promise, you’ll be glad you do.
Fiesta Friday will only work and benefit everyone if you abide by the simple, straight-forward, easy to follow, friendly, non-binding but highly recommended rules and guidelines.
Plus, if you do, you’ll be considered for features and then you can grab the “I was Featured” button, which I hope, soon, I’ll have the chance to update or renew, put some sauce on, make pretty and all that jazz, so you’ll be proud to display on your blogs.
Now, say hello to your FF 101 co-hosts, Jhuls and Mr Fitz. Jhuls is that sweet albeit hyper girl who made the vol au vents featured on The Best of FF100 (please check it out if you haven’t) and Fitz is the VERY first FF guest EVAH! So it’s only appropriate that he be the 101 co-host.
And now it’s time to partaaay!
Come and join Fiesta Friday #101! If you’re new to Fiesta Friday, please read the guidelines.

Are you sure that’s not keep hyper and fiesta on? 😀 And thank you for your ‘reminders’, Angie. I, myself needs to be reminded that I need to visit others more often. Happy 101th! xx
NO, Jhuls! You don’t need a reminder to keep hyper!! Did you make sure you had some chamomile tea? 🙂
I think Chef Julianna, is she’s coming, she’ll bring me some. If not, then I will have to check your cupboards. 😀
I’m a very calm person, Jhuls. I’m all zen-like. I don’t need chamomile, so I don’t stock it, haha…
Hmm, so not a chance I will be calm today. But the hyper version of me is better than the calm. 😀
There you go, Bubbles! Best to accept yourself as you are, lol!
And people love me that way, right? 😀 And I really missed that name – thanks, Angie! xx
So I’ve been very busy having chitchats with our friends at the party and I completely forgot to link up my post yet I am the first one to talk to you. There’s really something going on with my bubbly and hyper mind, Angie. I’ve linked up now.
Yay! I was sending you telepathic signal to link and it worked! 😀
See, we have special connection. 😀 How many times I browsed the entries, but never noticed that my post was not there. Tsk tsk tsk! Thanks, Angie. xx
Love it Angie, Party on and link up!!! I look forward to this party, with Jhuls and Mr. Fitz co hosting we are sure to have a blast. 101 Wow!!!
I’m trying to invite more friends. Especially those who are following me on TheNoviceGardener. Many of them haven’t joined, and they’re a little shy. They need prompting 🙂 The more, the merrier, right?
Elaine @ foodbod says
Here we go!!! Onto the next 100 fiestas!!!
I hope so, Elaine, I hope so. I think it’s your turn co-hosting next week, amirite? You and Julie. Looking forward!!
Elaine @ foodbod says
Me too 🙂
Did you have a rough week at school. I feel like I just went to the principals office. :))) Which I am sure I needed. Thanks for hosting and the subtle reminders and our wonderful co-hosts Jhuls and Mr Fitz. Happy FF!
Just a reminder, Quinn, and keep calm 😀 😀 Jhuls has chamomile tea for you, haha…
So I guess I have a partner now with camomile tea? 😀
What a cool mix of co-hosts! And good on you for reminding us that blogging is not just about SEOs and whatever other acronym. Now I better finish off my post so I can start partying!
Here’s to the next 100 FFs!
FF is perhaps different from other link parties in that sense. It wasn’t started to gain ratings or whatever SEOs are about. It’s about all the F words. Not THAT one! Friends, Family, and Fun! 🙂
Mr Fitz says
Loved the reminder!! okey dokey… lets PLAY BALL!! (or whatever it is you say across the pond…).. Ahem…
You mean you don’t say play ball over there? Then what do you say? Play cricket?! 😀
That’s what I always enjoyed about them: there’s a real community feeling about it and I’ve met the most amazing bloggers through you, really!
That’s great to hear! I like connecting people 🙂
Hooray, another fiesta! And fair enough about the reminders, we could all use them now and then. I always feel bad if I can’t visit as much as I’d like – I started not too bad at FF100 but then I got ill and afraid visiting kind of went down in the list of priorities 🙁 But this time! Hope you had a great time over the holidays and managed a bit of a break.
I did a lot of cooking, eating, and sleeping, haha… Oh, and organizing my closets. It felt good! But now I feel recharged and ready to rumble. Are you?
So so…I got a cold right on New Year so that knocked me back a bit and for me it’s more work when my son’s off as he was over the hols than normally so I have felt more recharged with him back in preschool than before! But nice to have a bit more family time.

Hi Angie, Thanks for the reminder. Wishing you happy, healthy and blessed New year.
Thanks so much, Sadhna, and I wish you all the best for a wonderful New Year! XOXO
Happy to be starting off the New Year with Fiesta Friday 101, Angie. Kudos to you for keeping all this together, and of course for the co-hosts. I like all those reminders, when I entered the world of blogging, I was never looking for numbers or ratings, but rather a family like Fiesta Friday where everyone joins in the fun and encourages each other along the way. For crying out loud I have no social media apps on my blog either except FB 🙂 What a loser I am! But then that goes to show that I truly enjoy these weekly virtual parties, so thank you again. Fiesta Friday Forever!!!! It’s been quite a journey.
No, you’re not a loser! I have never even tweeted before, and I’m very behind on Instagram and I’m now playing catch up on my Pinterest board. I need some program that can connect everything so I can just do it once. The problem is really not because we’re unsocial but we just don’t have the TIME! So we pick and choose where we want to spend more time on and I’m glad you choose to spend some of your precious time with us at FF! XOXO
You’re spot on Angie! Nah, we’re not unsociable in the least, if anything I know I feel like a social butterfly at times, just visiting and nattering and not getting down to business. But then, that’s what I was looking for as a blogger anyway, and am happy to say that I like to feel that FF is my extended family. There are so many other linky parties out there for sure, but I just feel so at home with FF, that I haven’t even ventured outside my little bubble. Thanks again to our Lovely Selma for introducing me and getting me on board. Truthfully, I don’t even have a smart phone, and I’m quite ok with that too LOL!!

Happy New Year Everyone! I’m back after a little vacay and ready to par-tay! Happy FF!!!
Yay, happy to hear you got some R & R and are now ready to rumble, I hope. We must have you in our Friday shindigs! 🙂
Sheri Fox says
So true, the wonderfull-ness of FF, beyond even the gorgeous foods and stories, has always been the fun and engaging ‘comment convo’s.’ It’s one reason I dropped out for a bit – I knew I was going to be a bad party guest during our relocation, and even now as we figure out our new life. Still I hope to pop in here and there and visit and I promise to be more social! xoxo
Well, you’d better! We are in need of diversity here. By that I mean, we need gardeners and ahem…singers 😀 I’m just happy you make it a point to stop by now and then. That’s all we want, no pressure whatsoever. XOXO
Sheri Fox says
I promise not to bring too much singing! And I’ll encourage some garden blogger friends to join in though the hardcore homesteaders might be a bit, uh, gritty for this crowd LOL ?
Yay – great features and terrific 2 week party! It was a lot of fun to work with Mollie, Steffi and Suzanne. I know you have taken me up on my offer to co-host every month or so but I am going to take a break from co-hosting. Looks like you have some great bloggers lined up to co-host. It’s a Fiesta Friday kind of party so we all need to participate 🙂
I’m grateful to you for all your help and support, Judi. And very reluctantly I will let you take a break, but hopefully not forever or even for very long 🙂 It was so much fun, wasn’t it? I count myself lucky to have crossed paths with you and many of these lovely people. XOXO
Happy New Year Angie! Congratulations on the begining of another year, another chapter of the Fiesta Friday!
And to you, too, Su, thanks! It’s now Year 3, can you believe that? So glad you decided to be a part of FF! XOXO
101!! Sounds really great.. So happy FF#101.. And so nice that you reminded us the golden rules in this new starting..thank you.. Need to visit more friends..
That’s the spirit, Nimmi. Visiting and conversing and having fun…that’s the whole idea, right?! 🙂

Love the rules! Missed this party, but I’ll be there tomorrow. I’m down under right now, so my post times may be slightly off. 🙂
