Kissing Recouperation

I don’t know about you guys, but I had so much fun yesterday! Seriously! There was a total of 88 bloggers who signed up to post a kissing scene on their blog yesterday! Who knew there were so many people out there who LOVE a great kiss….OR…almost kiss. (Yes, I know I keep saying it, but I just love the “almost” kiss!)

I have a confession to make. I haven’t finished reading the blogs. I stayed up until 2:30 this morning readig them, but I just couldn’t get it all done. Please, please forgive me! I will get to them this morning for sure.

You see, yesterday morning I got up early and started to read, but had to go to the doctor for a check up. Then I had to cook pies (buttermilk and chicken!) for a party I was hosting last night. YES…I’m a party animal, and hosted two parties in one day-a dinner party and a blog party! My husband thought I was nuts for running to the computer, then the oven, and then back to the computer all day.

I may have been away from the computer a good part of the evening, but my mind was not far away from all your blogs! I thought about many of the kissing scenes I had read, and I hope my guests didn’t notice my “sighs”. (for I read so many sigh-worthy scenes while baking away)

Thank you all so much for your participation in the Kissing Day Blogfest! You are the ones that made the day such a success! Thanks to Katie for our twittering conversation that got this idea going. You are always so much fun to tweet with…you and Krista…snort!

Annnddd, let me announce that FrankieDiane at Frankie Writes is hosting the No Kiss Blogfest on January 2, 2010. Sign up on her site to post your most tension-filled “almost” kiss. She’s already got a list going!

Now, I’m off to read and swoon some more.

  1. I had a lot of fun writing my kissing scene… it was actually (embarrassingly) a first for my lovebirds… *grin*

    Now I shall head to Frankie's no-kiss day! I already have a nice, tense scene for that one.


  2. It was definitely fun! Thank you so much. 🙂 I'm still making my way through Mr. Linky, so don't feel bad. It's going to take me awhile.
    There are so many great writers!


  3. It was a lot of fun! Thanks again for hosting!


  4. Kissing day blog fest was a gleaming success! How fun!!!! I didn't get to all the blogs, but got to many of them (i didn't leave comments on all because of time… but I loved them all! I promise!)

    A no-kiss day sounds fun! I post an “almost kiss” but I have a few more:-) Like you, I love a good almost kiss!


  5. I poo-pooed the idea at first, then repented of my snotty attitude and entered the circus. So glad I did; I had a blast! Thanks for the idea.


  6. Tons of sigh worthy kiss scenes. Love that you ran back and forth from oven to computer – I did too. Thank you for hosting this kissfest. Hope you make it to mine today. You'll never look at a tomato the same way.


  7. Thank you so much for starting this idea. I really loved it. And I didn't even get half way through all the blog posts you had listed. Whew.


  8. Yesterday was a blast. I had so much fun sharing and reading and commenting. And, of course, swooning. Thank you for being a spectacular hostess. It's been a pleasure to meet you and so many who participated. Happy Holidays, everyone!


  9. What an excellent idea! I hope to be able to participate next time!!

    And you are a master…two parties in one day. I salute you, madam.


  10. I'm not quite finished reading either–and I was up until 3am! I've got about 15 or 20 left to go, but I had a great time. Thanks so much for starting this!

    I'll definitely be taking part in the no-kiss day. I think I know which scene to use, too!


  11. My every thanks for including me in your fun-fest I had a ball. A BLISSFUL holiday to you and yours.
    Warmest regards,


  12. It was a blast as are you to be around. Thanx for being such a gracious hostess. 😉


  13. This was an awesome amount of fun. I found a bunch of fun blogs and read dozens of kissing scenes that made me sigh and made me want to be a better writer! Thanks so much for hosting it Sherrinda, and I'm looking forward to the no kissing blogfest too, though I can't say I actually have one of those scenes. I think all my kisses are fulfilled. Maybe I need to work on that….

    And yes, to answer your question on my blog, you do get to read more about Shadow and that stolen/sleeping kiss scene…


  14. I'm still reading,too! Great fun!!!!
    Maybe next time for Valentine's Day when we all have a little more time. 🙂


  15. Sherrinda!

    Whew! I am so happy you did this for us… I was so giddy and excited to post mine and to read the others–it is my goal to go through Mr. Linky as well and read all those swooning smooches!!!

    (I am such a hopeless romantic!)
    I am the perfect no kiss scene for


  16. Darn, I posted my almost kiss too early! Thanks for the idea, it was a lot of fun to read everyone's smooching scenes. 🙂


  17. Wow. That was a whole lot of virtual kissing going on!

    Great idea though and I loved reading many of them.

    Have a wonderful Christmas Sherrinda and all the best in the new year 🙂
