BlogFest 2012 - Sign Up Now

BlogFest 2012 is right around the corner! Okay, well, it's a little under two months away, but that's relatively right around the corner!

Get ready to have a blast September 28-30! (And if you're curious, the 30th is Cinnamon's birthday)

Looking for increased traffic to your blog? Want to get out and meet some fellow bloggers? Come join us for this annual 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 September 28, 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!


Grand giveaway:
Would you like to donate an item for the grand giveaway?  Email us at ajourneyofbooks-at-gmail.com to learn how.

For the past two years, we have picked one blog visitor that won a great big box of fun prizes.  This year, every blog that you mark on the tracking site earns you one entry.  Each participating blog also gets to choose one visitor and that person earns 10 entries.  One winner is chosen to win the box of awesomeness.


How do I participate?
Want to sign up as a blogger? 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.

  • Each blog must host a giveaway between 12:00 am EST on the 28th through 11:59 pm EST on the 30th. 
  • There are no stipulations as to the monetary value of this giveaway.
  • Each blog must post the links provided to them on the days of the event.
  • 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.
  • Giveaway rules are up to you.
  • We will have the famous tracking site available 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 ajourneyofbooks-at-gmail.com if you could like to help create some lovely badges, or help in any other way.

Once we have a list of participants, we will link to it from here.
