BlogFest 2011 Sign-Ups Open!

BlogFest 2011 is right around the corner!  Okay, well, it's really about two months away, but that's relatively right around the corner!


Get ready to have a blast July 15th-17th!

Looking for increased traffic to your blog? Want to get out and meet some fellow bloggers? Come join us for this twice a year event as we celebrate each other!


What is it?
BlogFest is a blog run of sorts. A list of participating blogs will be provided on July 15, each offering a fantastic giveaway for readers to enter. Each blog will link to another, pulling readers through the fantastic party we'll have set up for them!


How do I participate?
Want to sign up? Fill out the following form.






Finally, promote this event and have fun with it! Last year's event brought 100s of new visitors to participating blogs.  What better way to get the word out about your blog and the interesting thoughts you have to share?

Rules:
The rules are quite simple.



  1. Each blog must host a giveaway between 12:00 am EST on the 15th through 11:59 pm EST on the 17th. There are no stipulations as to the monetary value of this giveaway.
  2. Each blog must post the links provided to them on the days of the event. 
  3. Your BlogFest post can remain as a single post over the multiple days, but make sure there is an easily visible link to it from the top of your blog. If people can't find your giveaway, they certainly can't enter it. 
  4. Giveaway rules are up to you.
  5. We will have a webpage and database for visitors to use to help track their blog visits. While it is not mandatory that you direct your visitors there, it is a tool available to you.
I want to help!
I knew you would! Email us at blogfest2011@gmail.com if you could like to help co-host this event, create some lovely badges, or help in any other way.


2011 Participants


As soon as we get a list of tentative giveaways and some badges, those will be posted here!

Laura - I haven't had a chance to make one. Will probably work on that this weekend. I'm hoping some of our artists will get their creative juices flowing. :)
