Bloggiesta 2012

Yes!  I am going to commit to doing Blogiesta this year!  Never heard of it.  Well, I hadn’t either until a month ago when I saw this cute button on so many sites.  About 100+ have  signed up to this event.  Here is the basics of it.  From March 30, 2012 to April 1, 2012 bloggers commit to completely finishing their Blogging To Do List.  And like all great blogging events there are mini-challenge giveaways and tons of Tweeting.  If you want to join the party, go to It’s All About Books.
If you decide to participate, here’s what you can expect:
  • to spend time that weekend (as much or as little as your schedule allows) working on your blog
  • to create a to do list to share on your blog and link up with other participants
  • to hopefully participant in several mini challenges and learn something new
  • to connect with other participants through blog hopping or twitter
  • to make new blogging friends!
  • to come away at the end of the three days with a spiffed up blog!
If all that sounds like something you’d like to do, please write a post letting us know and link up! OLE!

  • Oh wow, you do have a lot of stuff lined up here. It’s amazing though how organized and possibly-efficient the bloggiesta event could be in terms of being goal-directed in what we need to do for our blogs. Best of luck to you! Hope we get at least half of our goals accomplished. Some of the mini-challenges also look nice! 🙂

  • So so happy to have you join us for Bloggiesta! You’re list looks like you’ve got a lot to accomplish this weekend, but it’s a great excuse right? Good luck on the site set-up!
