YOU DID IT!
You completed Bloggiesta! Your blog is now sparking and shiny. You finished your To Do List. You are a huge success and you should be proud!
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.
Thanks for participating! Thanks to all the mini challenge hosts! And to our Twitters hosts! This event would not have happened without you. Thanks for making the first Bloggiesta we hosted a huge success.
Let us know in the comments if you have suggestions for mini challenges or future events. We’d love to get your feedback.
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!
