Blogathon is Late But Here!

The Summer blogathon started about 12 hours ago. If you have been wondering where this post is, I apologize. I’ve been unwell.

This blogathon is a much smaller one than normal because of my health but I hope you still get lots done. Here is how things will work:

  1. There is no photo challenge this time around but feel free to share photos on social media with the hashtag #blogathon2 if you want.
  2. Twitter Parties are 2pm and 9pm EST starting tonight at 9pm. They will not have certain topics but will be a generic chat where you can ask questions. There IS twitter party prizes!
  3. Mini challenges will work differently. Tomorrow I will post how they will work.
  4. There are a few prizes and info on them and rafflecopter form will go up sometime tomorrow too.
  5. If you want to chat with other participants or ask questions, make sure you join the FB Group @Biannual Blogathon Bash

Please consider making a post on your blog sharing your participation and your to-do list and link it up here. This is NOT necessary if you want to win a prize and it’s also a way to invite others to visit you and tell others of the blogathon.

It’s Day Three–You Made It!

Phew! It’s Day Three! Depending on how hard you’ve been working, you may be happy it’s almost over or sad it’s almost over. Either way, it’s the LAST DAY. You have until 8am tomorrow but unless you are staying up all night long, that’s mostly only for those overseas (*waving at those people*)

A Little Humour

So what happens today? The same things as yesterday. Twitter Parties, having fun, photo challenge, don’t forget to enter for prizes!

If you decide to do a wrap up post or edit your kick off post to say what you accomplished or how long you blogged for, you can link it up on this post. You will have until tomorrow at 12pm EST to finish entering the rafflecopter form. If you missed it yesterday, another prize was added!

Today we will have follow threads in the Facebook group so you can follow each other but please only link up if you will come back and get everyone!

So go off, be productive and when and if you get around to it, come link up a wrap up post below.
