Deja Vu Blogfest 2014


Deja Vu Blogfest 2014

In 2011 and 2012 DL Hammons used a rather unique Blogfest to help him readjust to blogging after the turmoil of WRiTE CLUB, so he think it's time to resurrect it again. He recruited me to help coordinate things, and I'm so happy to do so!

Want to know one of our pet peeves about the way our blogosphere operates?  You can miss some really awesome posts if you need to be away for a while and unable to keep up with your favorite blogs.  While busy writing and editing and marketing, and while WRiTE CLUB was going on for DL, we’ve probably missed hundreds of quality posts.  Anybody who participated in the A to Z Challenge in April certainly missed some truly outstanding posts because of the impossibility of trying to keep up while writing a post a day.  It’s really hard to rebound when things get like that, so what we've both resorted to is simply picking up with everybody’s latest post.  You know what that means?  A post about the signing of an agent…missed!  A book contract finalized…missed!  A cry for help..missed!  A birth announcement…missed!  Some other special event in a bloggers life…gone!

It’s for this reason in 2011& 2012 DL hosted the Déjà vu Blogfest, and before that it was the BLOG RECYCLE STATION.  Well, we’ve decided to turn this blogfest into an annual event.  So we’d like to announce…



On December 19th, anyone who decides to take part will re-post their favorite blog offering from earlier in the year, or one that you believe failed to receive the exposure it deserved. So please sign-up to participate with Mr. Linky below, then shout out to all of your blogging friends and encourage them to sign up as well.  Take the badge above and plaster it everywhere, blogging graffiti gone wild. Tweet about it (#dejavu2014) and post the picture on Instagram. Then on December 19th as the day unfolds and everyone hops from one blog to another, what they will be reading is the best of the best (as determined by you) from this 2014.  The blogosphere will be chock full 2014 writing brilliance!  Encouragement, enlightenment, knowledge, bared souls, stimulation, hilarity, insecurities, success stories!  All on display…the very same day.  And it couldn't be any easier to take part...no writing necessary!
  

Sign up on the Linky Tool below and start looking through those old posts!

Aw, thanks for sharing this. I participated the other times. Not sure if I can this time. The posting date is on my 2nd son's 18th birthday. I feel as though I should do something special for him.
