Well hello there, everyone! MC here, writing my very first post as one of your new Bloggiesta hosts!! Woohoooo!!!! First of all, I want to reiterate how STINKING EXCITED we are to be taking over Bloggiesta. Emily and I are so grateful for all the support we received when Suey handed us the reigns, and we are ready to rock!
Now, let’s get down to business…
The Fall Bloggiesta is fast-approaching! It will run September 15-18.
That’s just a month away! And we need your help!
Here’s how you can help…
Host a mini-challenge… This is one of my favorite parts of Bloggiesta! We would love some new challenges, so let us know if you have any ideas! Or, you can revamp an old challenge! We will need challenges geared toward newbie bloggers, advanced bloggers, and everyone in between! You can find a list of previous challenges here, but here is a short list of some of my favorites:
- scheduling posts (and even tweets) and planning ahead
- what does your host do? (Help for self hosted bloggers.)
- How to make Instagram work for you
- How to make your blog Pinterest friendly
- social media strategies
- how to join and/or create a Twitter hashtag conversation
- dealing with email requests
- how to make Twitter really work for you
- try a new reviewing style
- how to contact publishers
- blog hop reviewing
- how to host your own blogging event
- let us know how to use the coolest new app/feature/site that you can’t live without
If you’d like to host a challenge, please keep in mind that you will need to post the challenge on your blog the day before Bloggiesta begins which is Wednesday, September 14. You can host a giveaway associated with your challenge as well, but it is not required.
Host a Twitter chat… We will be having Twitter chats every day during Bloggiesta and we need hosts! Ideally, we would like to have the chats at a variety of times, so that people in different time zones can join us! We will be brainstorming ideas and announcing the chat topics closer to the event date, so if you have a topic in mind, definitely let us know! If you love Twitter chats, but don’t necessarily want to run one, you can…
Write a Twitter chat recap… We love to recap all the chats we have so that all the information we talk about in the chat is in one place. If you are interested, you can help us recap one (or more) of the chats so that we can share the information with everyone!
If you want to help in any way, fill out the form below!
We are so very excited to be hosting our very first Bloggiesta, and we hope that you will join us! Mark you calendars for September 15-18!
Thank you again for all the support! We love you all!
MC, Emily, and (of course) Pedro
