THIS IS A BLOG HOP!  Everyone gets to host this party!

I am so glad you decided to join BEHIND THE CURTAIN DESSERT CHALLENGE! This party is designed to get your creative juices flowing, create an increase of traffic to your blog and meet new friends.

NO OBLIGATION: If you decide this challenge isn’t for you or if you want to sit out for a month that’s fine! The great thing about this challenge is that it is a personal challenge and it doesn’t effect anyone but you. Once you have sent me the original information ( Name, Your Blog Name, Your Blog URL) that’s all I need.  You’ll find the form at the bottom of this page.  I will send you reminders and updates EVERY month.

RECIPES: NEW RECIPES ONLY!  Please only submit a recipe that hasn’t been posted on your blog prior to the challenge. Only ONE recipe per challenge. REMEMBER this is a DESSERT ONLY challenge.

POSTING DETAILS:  A couple of days before the reveal day I will send you an email with the party code.  Once you have finished your post you can add the code to the bottom of your post.  NOTE:  MAKE SURE YOUR POST IS IN HTML MODE when you add the code. 

REVEAL DAY: In order to keep other posts from showing up on our party I have limited the posting time from 6:00 AM to 9:00 AM.  Between those hours you can publish your post.  Once you publish your post with the party code at the bottom you will then have the linky.  You then can add your post to the party which will show up on ALL participants websites.   Our challenge will be every month on the 2nd. Thursday starting at 6:00 AM Pacific timeNOTE:  If something comes up and you won’t be able to meet the deadline PLEASE let me know so we can make arrangements.  I don’t want anyone to miss a challenge.  The party will close for entries by 9:00 AM Pacific time that same dayNOTE:  Once you have added the code don’t make any changes to your post or the code will be erased.  (THE IS ONLY A PRECAUTION IT MAY NOT HAPPEN TO YOU BUT IF IT DOES SEND ME AN EMAIL AND I CAN GIVE YOU THE CODE AGAIN)  I WILL BE MONITORING THE PARTY THROUGH OUT THE 3 HOUR WINDOW TO MAKE SURE NON-MEMEBERS DON’T ADD THEIR POSTS.  This party will look like an “open” party until it closes at 9:00 AM.

Not only will you gain more traffic and friends but you will collect an incredible amount of NEW recipes.


I will also be creating a private Behind The Curtain Dessert Challenge Pinterest Board.  Anyone can follow but only Challenge members can join!
