My 1 year blogoversary is coming up, and I figured a blogfest would be an appropriate way to celebrate this milestone. Now, I've endured some of the usual insecurities. What if no one signs up? What if people think my idea for a blogfest is stupid? What if the world ends before the day of my blogfest?
Okay, I'll admit it, that last one isn't a legitimate concern for me. If anything, the end of the world would spare me the humiliation of no one signing up.
Either way, I'll never know until I try, so here we go!
The Beginnings Blogfest
Wednesday, January 9, 2013
As I writer, I can appreciate how important beginnings are. Everyone has to start somewhere. Everything brilliant was inspired by some specific turn of events. In celebration of completing one trip around the sun since I started blogging, I want to give everyone a chance to write about a beginning that is important to them.
Do you want to share the events that inspired you to start blogging? Perhaps you'd like to recall that first awkward blog entry where you tried to introduce yourself to the blogging world.
Or maybe you'd like to write about what inspired you to embark on your career path. When did the passion for this career choice begin, and how did you go about making it a reality?
You could even start at your real beginning and talk a little about where you were born and what the times were like.
Or, if you'd rather not talk about yourself, you can write about the origins of a favorite book, movie, artistic movement, or pretty much anything else. After all, I'd feel bad asking you to adhere to any strict guidelines since I'm asking you to write something original.
That being said, if you've already written a post on the subject and you'd rather share that, feel free! Sometimes posts are received better the second time around.
That's it! Try to keep your post a reasonable length, but I won't give you any exact word limits for this. Sometimes self-expression revolts against word limits. I know this from experience.
So, if you want to join in, sign up, grab a badge (there are two to choose from), and feel free to spread the word!
