In 2011 and 2012 I used a rather unique Blogfest to help me readjust to blogging after the turmoil of WRiTE CLUB (it seems like a lifetime ago since I wrote a normal post), so I think it's time to resurrect it again. To help me this year I recruited my fellow blogging buddy Nicole Zoltack to assist in coordinating things.
Want to know one of my pet peeves about the way our blogosphere operates? You can miss some really awesome posts if you need to be away for a while and unable to keep up with your favorite blogs. While WRiTE CLUB was going on I’ve probably missed hundreds of quality posts. Anybody who participated in the A to Z Challenge in April certainly missed some truly outstanding posts because of the impossibility of trying to keep up while writing a post a day. Are you going to do NaNoWrimo this November? What about all those great blog post you'll miss while your slaving over shiny new idea? It’s really hard to rebound when things get like that, so what I resort to is simply picking up with everybody’s latest post. You know what that means? A post about the signing of an agent…missed! A book contract finalized…missed! A cry for help..missed! A birth announcement…missed! Some other special event in a bloggers life…gone! I just shake my head when I think of all of the special posts I’ve missed this year. And then there are the informative posts about the topics I’m dying to know more about, yep I probably missed some of those as well.
It’s for this reason in 2011 and 2012 I hosted the Déjà vu Blogfest, and before that it was the BLOG RECYCLE STATION. I took the year off in 2013, but Nicole and I have decided to turn this blogfest into an annual event. So today the two of us would like to announce….
On December 19th, anyone who decides to participate will re-post their favorite blog offering from earlier in the year, or one that you believe failed to receive the exposure it deserved. To take part all you have to do is sign-up with Mr. Linky below, then shout out to all of your blogging friends and encourage them to sign up as well. Take the badge above and plaster it everywhere, blogging graffiti gone wild. Tweet about it (#dejavu2014) and post the picture on Instagram. Then on December 19th as the day unfolds and everyone hops from one blog to another, what they will be reading is the best of the best (as determined by you) from this 2014. The blogosphere will be chock full 2014 writing brilliance! Encouragement, enlightenment, knowledge, bared souls, stimulation, hilarity, insecurities, success stories! All on display…the very same day. And it couldn't be any easier to take part...no writing necessary!
