Bloggiesta Begins Now!

Mark, get set, go! Start working on your blogs now! (Ha, I know many of you have already jumped the gun and have been working feverishly already!)

Here’s a few things to remember about the way Bloggiesta works.

HOW TO PARTY

  • Bloggiesta begins now and runs through Sunday night… wherever you are. We don’t have specific starting and ending times…. just Thursday March 27 through Sunday March 30… wherever and whenever you are in the world!
  • Plan to spend as much time as you can working on your to do list and completing mini challenges. Don’t worry about having the entire four days to devote to this, but do challenge yourself to put in some good hours to the project. 
  • Feel free to update your progress any way you see fit. You can just cross things off your list, or write a couple of update posts. We will have a Finish Line Post link up here on Sunday for anyone wishing to link up their summary posts (or crossed off lists.)

HOW TO CONNECT

  • Much of our connection with each other will be happening on Twitter. Be sure to follow @Bloggiesta and the hashtag #bloggiesta.
  • Be sure to join us for the Twitter chats. They are a blast! This year we are having themed chats. Here’s the schedule:
    • Thursday March 27 @ 9 p.m. Eastern:  Social Media and Your Blog
      Friday March 28 @ 4 p.m. Eastern: Technical Aspects of Blogging
      Saturday March 29 @ 11 a.m. Eastern: Organization
      Sunday March 30 @ 8 p.m. Eastern: Book Blogging and Misc.
  • Also, plan to do lots of blog hopping by clicking on participants links (See the sign up links here.) Send lots of encouragement everyone’s way and help out with your expertise on all bloggish things! This is a big part of the whole idea of Bloggiesta! 
  • Be sure to participate in as many mini challenges as you can! The new ones are listed here, and previous challenges are listed here. Give our awesome challenge hosts lots of link love and ask them lots of questions!

And that’s about all there is to it! Go forth and blog your hearts heart!
