Bloggiesta March 2015 Starting Line

Mark, get set, go! Welcome to our first ever week long Bloggiesta!  It’s time NOW to get working on those blogs! And if you haven’t done so already, be sure to link up your To Do Lists on this post here. That’s how you’ll let everyone else know you are here and participating!

And…in case you are new to this event, here are a few things to remember.

HOW TO PARTY

  • Bloggiesta begins now and runs through Sunday night… wherever you are. We don’t have specific starting and ending times…. just Monday March 23 through Sunday March 29… 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 week 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 simply 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. You can also check out everyone’s Twitter handle on the sign up list and follow them.
  • Be sure to join us for the Twitter chats. They are a blast! We’ll be having themed chats again. Here’s the schedule:

  • 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!
