Welcome to the Spring 2015 edition of Bloggiesta!
I am excited to host a challenge for this round of Bloggiesta! Every time that this event comes around, a number of us always talk about all those amazing challenges that have been offered in past years, but so few of us actually have the time to get to that long list OR we completely forget about it as we get caught up in the current challenges. For this Bloggiesta, we have two things going for us: (1) This is our first week-long event (woohoo!) and (2) I am hosting a challenge that will take us back to those past challenges! So, let's do it!
THE CHALLENGE: Visit the long list of all those past challenges from previous Bloggiesta events. Be sure to review all of them and see all the amazing resources that are available to you. Then, choose one or two that really stand out to you and perform those challenges.
REPORT BACK: After you have completed the challenges selected above, comment below with what challenges you took and how they went. If applicable, link up in your comment.
PRIZE WINNERS: For all those who participate in this challenge, you will be entered to win one of two prize levels! One winner will receive a $15 Amazon e-gift card. Five winners will receive a signed Lisa See bookmark (pictured below). If you are opting into the drawing for the prizes, be sure to include your email address in your comment or ensure that it is easily found on your website linked.
For more information on Bloggiesta, check out the devoted website to the event.
If you have questions, let me know. Best of luck to you!
READY. SET. GO!
This is so fun! I'll be back later in the week to participate!ReplyDelete
Andi ... Yay! I can't wait to see which one you go with!Delete
I completed 2 old mini challenges -ReplyDelete
Your Blog & Twitter where I linked my blog posts to twitter feed - this will make my life so much easier!
and Pinterest for your Book Blog where I set up a pinterest account for the blog (I was already going to have to do this for the Pinning your Author Interviews mini challenge). It was nice to have an account only for the blog and it inspired new post ideas! - https://www.pinterest.com/easternsunset9/
I go into more detail with my results on my progress report - http://easternsunset-reads.blogspot.com/2015/03/spring-2015-bloggiesta-sign-up-and.html

bkclubcare ... I completely agree!Delete
I did the IFTTT challenge. I'm excited to do something that triggers one of my recipes. I can't wait to see how it works!!!ReplyDelete
Jenni Elyse ... Yay!! That is one that I've looked at a couple of times myself. Can't wait to hear how it works.Delete
This is such a good idea! I found the challenge about improving a NetGalley ratio so I'm hoping to work on that a little this weekend. I could really use it! :)ReplyDelete
kathy ... Definitely let us know how it goes!! There really is so much to learn in all those archives!Delete
I love going back and reviewing the old challenges, so thanks for putting this one together! I did several of the social media challenges as I'm still unsure about the best ways to promote my blog on Facebook, Twitter, and StumbleUpon. Going to work on scheduling posts for Facebook & Twitter and stumbling posts I find interesting.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the challenge Tif! :)
Alexia561 ... You're welcome! Social media is a tough one because it is constantly changing! I hope find something that works.Delete
Ok, Tif, I didn't realize that I'd actually done one of the old mini-challenges (Sidebar Help by Reading Fever) over this week but I did a general clean up of my sidebar and I have to say that my blog is able to breathe again ;)ReplyDelete
guiltless reader ... Yay!! Doesn't that feel good!?!Delete
I did the Cheat Sheet challenge. I now have a document with all of my post formats. Now I just have to copy and paste.ReplyDelete
Katrina @ Bookish Things ... Great job! That is going to be so helpful for you!!Delete
