Get Ready for the 4th Edition of Bloggiesta!

Bloggers Get Ready for the 4th Edition of Bloggiesta!

Are you a Blogger? Then this is the event you've been waiting for! The 4th Edition of Bloggiesta! It's 76 hours of Planning, Editing, Developing, and basically working on your blog! It's a blogging marathon with 169 bloggers (and counting) that are participating!

Here's How to Participate:

*The dates are: Friday January 21st, Saturday the 22nd and Sunday the 23rd. You can really start whenever you want within that time but official hours are 8am to 8am (wherever you are). That is a total of 76 hours, the hours spent on the challenge do NOT need to be in a row. Use the entire 76 hour time frame and see what you can do with it.

*It’s your call as to how much you want to put into it. But you have to put something into it or it’s not a challenge. So stay up all night or sleep and take care of kids when you need to.

*When you start the challenge, go to Maw Books Blog ,(she's graciously hosting this BIG event), and to the “starting line” post and link to your specific post about beginning the challenge which is posted on your blog. That way I’ll be able to track participants and know who’s really at the party.

*How many updates (if any) you want to do is up to you. Make it work for you.

*There will be bloggers hosting mini-challenges as well. These are great to learn new information. To get an idea of the mini-challenges last time, check out the list.

*If you are on Twitter, use the hashtag #bloggiesta to join the chatter.

*Your final summary post needs to be posted no later than end of the day Monday, January 24th. Come back to the finish line and link to your specific summary post (again- can be that same post you’ve been updating). Your summary should include the number of hours spent on the challenge, what you accomplished, links to mini-challenge hosts if you completed them and any other experiences you’d like to add.

This is such a fun event for bloggers to share, inform and work on their blogs! Blogging is a year round fiesta, because we are constantly tweaking, redesigning and sharing with our readers, but Bloggiesta is especially fun because so many bloggers participate together. If you're not a blogger, you can still participate by visiting blogs and cheering us on as we work together to create the best blogs we can together!

Happy Bloggiesta!
