Ole Ole! It’s time to blog and fiesta… BLOGGIESTA! Welcome everyone to the very first Bloggiesta run by Emily and MC! We are so excited to have you join us! If this is your first Bloggiesta, this post should help you figure things out. If you haven’t done so already, make sure you link up you To-Do Lists here. That is how you can let us all know you are participating!
HOW TO PARTY
- Bloggiesta begins now (Thursday) and runs through Sunday night… wherever you are. We don’t have specific starting and ending times…. just Thursday September 15 through Sunday September 18… 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.
- You are welcome to join in the fun anytime during the event! Let us know you are here by adding your To Do List link on our sign up page.
- 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 them up. Twitter is a great place to shout your progress too.
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 great way to meet new people and learn some awesome tips and tricks! Here’s the schedule:
- Thursday September 15 @ 5pm EST: Starting Line Chat! Discussing what we hope to accomplish!
- Friday Spetember 16 @ 9pm EST: Topic TBD
- Saturday September 17 @ 9pm EST: Editorial Calendars and Getting Organized!

- 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!
