B is for Blog Blitz



What would it be like if the support, encouraging nature, and community spirit of the blogosphere were ever focused on a single blogger? That's where the idea for BLOG BLITZ came from. A few of us have experienced that sort of attention via book launches or other publishing announcements, and still others have achieved that level of awareness through the popular blogfests we host. In most cases there is a lot of work that goes into generating that amount of interest. What I'm talking about is being suddenly thrust into the spotlight, without even lifting a finger. What would it feel like to be the recipient of that kind of exposure?

Here’s how it works. Go to my original blog post HERE and sign up on the linky list, making sure to record your email address, and you’ll instantly become a member of the Blog Blitz Team. Then from time to time, I will select a deserving blog (that must be part of the Blitz Team) and a specific date. I will then email the team members that information and on that date we all will go out of our way to visit that blog and leave an encouraging comment on their most recent post. Right now we have 210 people signed up to participate...and growing.

By the way, were you aware that I lacked a sense of smell? Weird, huh? 

Want to see what a BLITZ looks like? PK Hrezo was our first victim, but it just so happens somebody is getting Blitzed today, so if you go HERE you can see first hand what its like.

Hope you decide to become a part of the team!

Did you realize that I'm holding a contest during the Challenge?  No?  You can read all about it HERE.

  2. To be honest, the thought of over 200 people visiting my blog in one day kinda terrifies me!

  3. I actually read that twice to make sure I didn't miss the detail about you... thanks for the reminder - *blitzed mission complete* :)

  4. It's been getting so hard living with the things you do to me
    My dreams are getting so strange - I could tell you everything I see
    I see a man in the back - as a matter of fact his eyes are as red as the sun
    And the girl in the corner - let no one ignore her - she thinks she's the passionate one

    (Oh yeah)

    It was like lightning
    Everybody was frightening
    And the music was soothing
    And they all started grooving

    (yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah)

    And the man in the back said, "Everyone attack!" and it turned into a Ballroom Blitz!

    I am going for the weirdest responses...

  10. You lack the sense of smell? So I wonder how the taste of food differs for you? I guess you wouldn't know would ya. Interesting.

  19. I'm off to blitz an unsuspecting Blitzee...
    Btw, in case you didn't know, we are the Blitzers. The recipient is the Blitzee.
    Now you know.

  20. I almost forgot about Blog Blitz today! Thanks for the reminder :)

  21. I *still* think it'd be weird to have no sense of smell. But seeing as my husband is half deaf and he manages just fine, I think that it's probably just something that you're used to...

    ReplyDelete
  22. I remember you mentioning your lack of smell before. I wonder if it would be easier to resist all those tempting fatty foods without a sense of smell? That would be nice, but I'd miss the smell of things spring flowers, the ocean, coffee brewing...

    ReplyDelete
  23. I knew a guy who couldn't smell or taste. And yet whenever he has company he insists on cooking for them. It's a bit awkward when the dishes he prepares are sub-palatable. He's quite defensive about it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Smells like fun!
    Loved blitzing today's victim. :D

  26. In the name of all the Dragon Ancestors, you gave me such a wake up call today, my friend! Thank you very much for the Blitz. Had me grinning since 6am (that means I've been grinning for 3 hours now. LOL) You should have added B is for Brilliant, because your idea is just brilliant! Thanks again from me and all my 150 dwarves! :D

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yup, being on the Blitz team is fun. It's nice to be able to be part of making someone feel special. Keep those brilliant ideas coming!

  30. I love this idea. It's a lot of fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Woo! D L! What a fantastic post to see on my first visit -- color me impressed :)

    I like it because it:

    a) unites people towards a positive goal
    b) leverages the sometimes hidden powers of crowds+communities
    c) it uplifts the unsung heroes and unrecognized geniuses who deserve support.

    Much love,
    Ryze together!

  32. I love your theme and I even gave it a shout out on my blog post today. I am so mad at myself, I actually forgot. about it yesterday. I visited your blog and read your theme, but you didn't have your A to Z post up yet and I fell asleep so early last night, I never got back to visit. I will be here for the rest of the month. Smell, huh? I suppose that can be an asset and a liability. I hope that is the information I was suppose to discover. I also checked out your blog blitz and added my name. What a cool and fun idea. You come up with the best ideas for giving back to the blogging community. I am off to check out the first recipient of the blog blitz and today's recipient.

  33. You seriously can't smell? Wow, I can't imagine what life would be like. I bet I wouldn't eat as much though.

  34. Al was a perfect choice for the Blitz!

  38. Love the idea and a great "B"!

  39. I love the Blog blitz and the a to z challenge. So exciting to be a part of both!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Love this idea! What a great way to give someone an extra nice boost.

    You mentioned before that you can't smell and I remembered because my husband can't smell, either! Does it effect your taste at all? Sometimes my husband can't pick out subtle flavors, like then I add something extra to a meal.

    Happy A to Z-ing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

  42. I blitzed PK and victim, er, I mean, recipient #2. And had so much fun doing it, too!

    ReplyDelete
  43. a pefect article for B! Blog Blitz is such a wonderful idea!

    PS: I think Al's Dragon Cave is a little too crowded these days...

    ReplyDelete
  44. I've blitzed very early today. That was fun!
    You know, you should have saved Contest and Challenge for tomorrow. Now what are you going to do? And the smeller thing...that could'a been S-smell or N-nose. But now you've wasted them. No fair using them now!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Lacking a sense of smell must be a real handicap for a writer... I feel for you.

    And I'm still thinking about the time commitment of joining your blog blitz team. I don't usually blog or visit other blogs more than once a week.

  46. Dude,

    Your Blog Blitz, true testimony to the ideals of a sharing, caring blogging community. A community where we rejoice in the diversity of an all different, all equal world. Well done, kind sir.

    And thus, I share you message to the various social network sites. Yep, even 'Farcebook'! Be well and enjoy the A to Z.

    Gary :)

  49. Very interesting concept - I like it! I think I like the dog pile analogy the most!! Sounds like fun, and a great way to find blogs you might never have run across without it.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Glad the blog blitz went well. Nice B!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Interesting concept to help people get some attention.

    ReplyDelete
  52. What a great idea! I just signed up - can't wait to be part of a blogger dog pile.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Lacking a sense of smell is probably something I can remember. Where did you lose it? Did you use a flashlight when you were looking for it?

    I'll think about the Blog Blitz...

    ReplyDelete
  54. It's an excellent idea. Sometimes that's all it takes to either make someone's day or launch a deserving blog. Fantastic!

  56. How exciting! I think I will be signing up for this Blog Blitz. It sounds fun! Have you never had a sense of smell, or did you lose it? One of my sisters hasn't ever had a sense of smell that she can remember.

  57. I blog blitzed too ...

  58. Awesome idea, sounds like fun. I read on another blog that you're sick. I hope you feel better soon!

    ReplyDelete
  59. So with no sense of smell does that mean you have keen eagle sight? Ergo the altitude theme in your blog? Just wondering.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I love your ideas! I just noticed the link to your contest as well, and realized I missed "B". :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. The Blog Blitz is such a cool idea. Back problems kept me away from the computer, so I was very late in blitzing our latest chosen blogger. I stopped by and left a comment for them today.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I 'skimmed' through the comments so I apologize if I'm repeating a question but does the blitzee know when the blitz is going to happen or is it a surprise??? Another fantastic idea though. I'm starting to see how you think, and I like it.

    ReplyDelete
  63. What a swell idea. I went back and checked out the original post and really quite enjoy your analogy of the blog blitz being like a fun-filled (albeit cyber) "dog-pile" - yep, I am sure that was entirely politically incorrect as well, but that's what I remember it being referred to.

    Your creativity astounds!
