Fall Bloggiesta 2016 Closing Chat Twitter Recap

Tonight’s chat was a wrap of of this past Bloggiesta! We chatted about what we accomplished, what we were motivated to accomplish in the future, and what we learned from this Bloggiesta. You can check out #bloggiesta on Twitter to see the whole chat, but here are a few highlights:

Let’s talk about our progress! What did you accomplish this past weekend? What did you cross off your to do list??

Everyone made so much progress! Is there anything you DIDN’T get done? Anything we can still help with?

Did you complete any mini challenges?? Which ones? Any you want to try in the future? (I think almost everyone in the chat answered this question by talking about bullet journals!)

Do you have any ideas for future Bloggiestas?

We love hosting this event and we can’t wait until next time! Bloggiesta went by so fast! Thank you all for joining us!

Spring 2016 Finish Line!

 

And…THE END!  At the end of today another Bloggiesta will bite the dust!  Here’s hoping everyone accomplished a lot and learned new things!

If you’d like to write a wrap up post or simply link up to your crossed off To Do Lists, you can share here in this linky.

Bloggiesta Chat Recap: Sunday Sept. 20 “Free for All” and “Mini Challenge Requests”

 

We had our final chat on Sunday afternoon. Everyone took a moment to say what they’d accomplished this bloggiesta which ranged from scheduling reviews to switching to MailChimp.  Lots of participants took advantage of the mini challenges and seemed to really enjoy them. Thanks again to those who hosted!

Much of the time was spent soliciting ideas for future mini challenges. We came up with this list:

  • FTP for backing up your blog
  • making a calendar/spreadsheet of book releases and ARCs
  • MailChimp tutorial
  • what does your host do? (Help for self hosted bloggers.)
  • Tumblr: do we want one? Do we need one? Please, someone explain!
  • all about giveaways and Rafflecopter
  • How to make your blog Pinterest friendly
  • social media strategies

Some suggestions for future Bloggiestas:

  • more week long ones
  • a month long one with themed weeks
  • setting up blogging buddies during Bloggiesta
  • having a blog critique or peer review session
  • release challenges slowly over the course of the week/month instead of all at once
  • brainstorm to do lists with other participants pre-event
  • have achievement badges
  • keep up the recaps! :)

Dates for next year (subject to change) were announced:

  • Winter Mini Bloggiesta: January 16 and 17
  • Spring Week Long Bloggiesta: March 21 to 27
  • Summer Mini Bloggiesta: June 18 to 19
  • Fall Bloggiesta: September 15 to 18

Maybe we’ll make the fall one a week long too. I’m not sure about a month long event at this point. Will ponder!

If you have any other suggestions or ideas, please comment here. Also, we’ll post a simple feedback survey form very soon. Thank you to everyone for participating!

Thanks for participating! Let us know in the comments if you have suggestions for mini challenges or future events. There’ll be a survey up in the next few days. We’d love to get your feedback.
