In 2011, 2012, and then again in 2014, I used a rather unique Blogfest to help me readjust to blogging after the turmoil of WRiTE CLUB. This year I’ve just finished up my fourth novel and I’m trying to do it again. I’m a hardy believer that if something works…stick with it…so here we go again.
One of my pet peeves about the way our blogosphere operates is that you can miss some really awesome posts if you’re away for a while. 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. How about NaNo…anybody fall behind in their blog reading while that was going on? It’s really hard to rebound when things get like that, so what most people do is simply pick up with the latest post of the blogs they follow. You know what that means? You could have missed a post about the signing of an agent! A book contract finalized…missed! A cry for help...missed! A birth announcement…missed! Some other special event in a bloggers life…passed by! 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 that I came up with the Déjà vu Blogfest, and it’s become an annual event. So I’d like to announce this years….
On December 18th thru 20th, anyone who decides to take part should re-post their favorite blog offering from earlier in the year, or one that you believe failed to receive the exposure it deserved. So please sign-up to participate 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 (#dejavu2015) and post the picture on Instagram. Then on that weekend (December 18th-20th) as everyone hops from one blog to another, what they will be reading is the best of the best (as determined by you) from 2015. The blogosphere will be chock full 2015 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!
Sign up below and start looking through those old posts! :)
