Are you going to join us for our Birthday Party tonight???

by Janice

Okay ladies, I am postponing our family’s long weekend getaway for a night so that I can party with YOU for Susan and my 36th Birthday. So PLEASE tell me you are coming!

What are we going to do for our online celebration?

Well, we are going to party with this funky new tool called Snazl — have you heard of it yet?

If you haven’t yet heard of SnazL, you’ll want to check it out. It is Ameeda’s brainchild and brings together video, audio, images and other content along with chat in a real-time party experience.

If that sounds a little confusing, no worries. At our party, we will help you walk through it all and by the end you’ll be a Snazl veteran!

And to help answer a few of your questions ahead of time, here is Susan interviewing Ameeda about Snazl.

We hope to see you here, Thursday, July 30th, at 8pm Eastern.

E.L.F. cosmetics is providing 5 gift certificates each worth $50 for us to award to some of our lucky party attendees.

When the party starts on Thursday, July 30th at 8:00 PM Eastern, we will add videos and other content to that SnazL. And the coolest part is that you can add content too — In Real-Time!

So, get ready to party with us on Thursday, July 30th at 8:00 PM Eastern.

If you want to co-host the event, you can simply copy the SnazL embed code into a post on your own site so that people can watch and interact on your site.

If you want to be a co-host, please sign the MckLinky below and publish a post with the SnazL code on Thursday, July 30th at 8:00 PM Eastern (5:00 PM Pacific).

We’ll give out one of the E.L.F. gift certificates to one of our co-hosts and we’ll announce how to win one of the other 4 certificates during the party.

The code you want to add to your site to co-host our party is:

Birthday wishes indeed! I think that’s a wee bit too technical for me given the time crunch but I hope you have a blast.

Seriously, you two are 36? Wow, I met you briefly at BlogHer and you both seemed like you were in your late 20s at most. You’ll need to share some of your anti-aging tips! :)

Hope you both have a great birthday weekend…
