About the Blogathon
The Quick Answer:
The blogathon is a FREE ONLINE event for bloggers of all types that occurs twice a year. Think of it like a mix between an online conference and a blogging challenge.
The Medium Answer:
- The blogathon is a chance to get to work on all those blogging tasks you need or want to get done but just haven’t found the time such as changing your design, writing posts, cleaning out your email, fill in your editorial calendar, write and ebook and any number of things.
- The blogathon is also a chance to connect with other bloggers and make new blogging friends and bring new readers to your blog. Twitter parties and a Facebook group for connecting are two of the ways we help make that happen.
- The blogathon is also a chance to learn new blogging tricks and skills and share your blogging knowledge with others. Mini challenges allow you to either share your knowledge with others or learn from others (or both!).
I host two blogathons a year, one in the winter (January) and one in the summer (June). The events take place on a weekend and run for 72 hours. You do not have to be online the whole time though.
It is up to you how much time you spend on the blogathon during the weekend but we encourage you to make a time goal and work towards that. The more you participate, the better chance you have of winning a prize!
We hope you will join us!
