It's finally here! Bilbo and Frodo's birthday! Huzzah!
Here are the questions for you to copy onto your own blog or website any time this week. Answer them there, add a nice button or banner, add the link to that post to the Linky thingie here, and then cut yourself a big slice of birthday cake to eat during the speeches. You know how long-winded Bilbo gets once he's had a mug or two of the Gaffer's home brew! And young Master Frodo isn't much better.
(If you don't have a blog or website, but you do have a Facebook account, you can still participate! Just create a "Note" on your profile page and set the privacy setting to "public" so that we can all read it and get to know you.)

I posted the tag and added my name to the Linky thing. Great questions by the way, and here is the link to my post if that thing does not work. Hopefully I did everything right.ReplyDelete
Yay! You did it perfectly, and I'm off to read your post while lunch cooks. Awesome!Delete

I've linked up under my real name : ) I hope you like what I've written!ReplyDelete
Oh dear, I've linked up twice! Sorry!Delete
Oh well. If I can figure out a way to remove one, I will, but if not -- better twice than not at all! I'm off to read your responses :-)Delete
I'm one day late with this! *ashamed* I really thought the 22nd was a Monday, why didn't I check the calendar in the first place?? :D Anyway, now I'm in!ReplyDelete
Fear not! The festivities run all week :-D You're not late at all.Delete
I've linked up! Great blog by the way :) and Happy Tolkien Week!ReplyDelete

Thanks! I think it's proving to be lots of fun :-)Delete
This is very cool! I've added mine now.ReplyDelete
Hooray! I'm glad you liked it :-D And participated!Delete
Yay, the party has started! Unfortunately, I will not be able to answer the questions until the last few hours of your party week, as I'm away for a conference.... It's not too bad, I'm in a very nice hotel in the middle of London, but I don't have the opportunity to really update my blog. Not very easy on a smartphone.... I will read the posts and try to get the questions up on my blog Friday eveningReplyDelete
Bummer on the timing! I hope you manage to participate in time to enter the giveaway! They end at 12am on Saturday EST, which is probably what, 4am in London? So if you manage to post on Friday evening, you'll still be able to enter the giveaway. And if not... you can do the party post Saturday, or any time after, there's no time limit on that ;-)Delete
Have fun reading all the other participants' answers!
I've linked up! The tag was really fun- thanks for doing this! I don't get much of a chance to write things on Tolkien, so I'm really looking forward to the rest of this blog party. :)ReplyDelete

I'm so sorry that I'm just linking up now! I read about your party just before it started and thought that I *had* to join. However, life.... yeah. So, my apologies. But many thanks for hosting this!! I had a lot of fun filling out the tag!ReplyDelete
Better late than never! I left this up so people could continue to participate and read each other's answers even tho the party is "over." I hope to do this again next year, so mark your calendar ;-)Delete
