It’s a Twitter Party! You Had Me at Row80 and Dancing

On Wednesday, October 5, the Twitterverse is gonna rock.  Writers from near and far will descend with one goal in mind: To “Rock the Row” for the ROW80 celebration of round 3, kick-off party for round 4 and get down groovy time for all supporters.  Don’t be shy.  Anyone can participate in this Twitter party whether it is just popping by to say hello or being the last one typing at 11:59 pm.  And you can bring brownies, bourbon or barbecue.  🙂   

What is Row80 you ask?  The keys to the mystery are here.

How do you join?  Join us here.  Bwahahaha.

Just wanna get the party started?  Okay, we’ll get to the guidelines in a sec, but first meet the party co-hosts Jenny Hansen and Nicole Basaraba.  They have guaranteed dancing via Jenny’s extensive playlist and Nicole letting us rock LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” on repeat.  Now for Jenny’s guidelines:

  • Theme: “Rock the Row” – However you want to work that in is great. I leave it to your outrageously creative imagination!
  • Date: October 5th, 12:01 AM to 11:59 PM ET in the U.S.  This also happens to be the first day of check-in so there should be a ton of ROW80 fun happening around the blogosphere.
  • Party will be held at the #ROW80 hashtag.  Fire up your Tweet Deck or HootSuite and let’s get jiggy with it.
  • Photo Competition: You can start now…we won’t tell. Start digging for or taking photos that reflect the theme. We’ll do our best to gather them and decide on the best to spotlight in a post at the ROW80 blog. Once the readers vote, the 1st place winner gets a copy of Kait Nolan’s latest book, Red, in e-book format!! (And maybe some others–updates coming)
  • Friendly Blog Competition We will also post a mash-up of favorite ROCK THE ROW posts at the Row80 blog.

So now that you know the when, where and how, please plan to join in the merriment.  I LOVE to dance (see #10 here) and back in the day used to close out many clubs with disco, house and top 40 theme nights.  At this party, I’ll be the one hoisting myself up on the table and dropping it like it’s hot.  Now I’m off to do some moves to get limber.

Getting the legs limber


Some serious ab work here...

  1. Yay!!! Owl and plank!!!!!!! Whoot! Whoot! Rock on, baby, rock on! See you at the party!

  2. Nicole says:

    Giiiiirl you sure know how to get party people excited! Love your post. Can’t wait to drop like its hot with you at the party and Rock the Row!

    • Thanks for stopping by Nicole! I loved the Party Rock Anthem video you posted. I’d heard the song, but never saw the video. Now I’m hooked and “shufflin” around. See you at the party!

  3. Jenny Hansen says:

    Barbara, I LOVE this post!!! I used to close out all the clubs too. 🙂 Back in the day I was a dancing machine and I promise to hop up on a table and have a dance-off with you. Laying down the gauntlet….(although you might kick my a$$ with all that pre-prep Plank and Owl business…)!

    • Thanks for the comment Jenny! I loved your playlist and it immediately flashed me back to those club days.

      Oooo a dance-off challenge! Yeah! Hey, will there be electric fans at the party? While I still have the spirit, the older dancing version of me will get hot. 🙂

      *stretches arms* Two more days to do some training. I’ve also gotta dig in the shoe holder for my chunky heel boots so I can make sure my balance is good. Now for the proper outfit…

  4. Hartford says:

    LOVE it!!! LOL!!!

    I was rocking it out this weekend and plan to keep rocking it out for the next 80 days. Let the dancing and celebrating begin! Woot woot!

    • When I get super spunky (or crazy and muttering to myself), I’m going to rock some hardcore gangster rap or metal so people run away and give me writing space. Heh heh. You can join in then we can play air guitar on breaks.

  5. Love the planking!

    I see you’ve already received a Versatile blogger award, but because you’re new to me I’ve given you another one. 🙂

  6. Barbara! Love, love, love this. Dang. I don’t think I could do the plank without vertigo. LOL! So nice to know I have such limber friends. Good for you and congrats on doing ROW 80. You know I’ll be cheering you on. Have a blast today.

    • Heh heh Kate! Yes, the planking on stuff looked so easy before I hoisted myself up on that stool. When I put out my legs, it was like total thigh and abs work. Thanks for the cheering section with the pom-poms! 🙂

  7. OMG, Barbara, you’re awesome. You just inspired me to do some push-ups. Seriously. Okay, going.

  8. Ha ha ha Angela! I never was a push-up fan, but do like the leg press machine as part of my strength training regime. 🙂
