The Blogathon Bash is ON!

It’s finally here! The Biannual Blogathon Bash has officially started but you can jump in as soon as you are ready.

Biannual Blogathon BashI will be basically blogging all weekend but not everyone can or wants to commit to that much. Blog when you can, take a break when you need to. Make sure you stay up to date with this blog to see what’s new. If you have trouble finding an important post, check the top left sidebar where they will be linked.

Kick Off Post

To start off, you need to do a kick off post on your blog. It’s basically just to tell your readers that you are participating in the blogathon and what you hope to accomplish and/or how much time you plan to devote. It’s okay if you don’t know for sure, it’s just what you plan/hope for. Feel free to mention what else you are doing this weekend including conferences, other challenges or family commitments. Let your readers know it is NOT too late to join in and include the event button please. If you tweet your post, include the #blogathon2 hashtag.

Here’s the important part! Make sure you LINK UP your post below in the linky. (bottom of post) If you have some time when you need to take a little break from your work, visit your fellow blogathoners and leave them comments on their kick off posts.

Making Sure You Are Eligible for Prizes

Then you’ll need to head over the Prize List, read how it works and what’s available. Then go here to officially enter for prizes. Be sure to go back and enter again when you’ve done more “entries.”
