2013 Winter Biannual Blogathon Kickoff

January 2013 - Winter Biannual Blogathon

Welcome to the 2013 Winter Biannual Blogathon Bash! I’m dedicating this weekend to working on my blog, along with 100 or so other bloggers! Do you have some major blogging goals you’d like to accomplish? How about a backlog of items on your To Do list you’d like to complete? If so, this is the perfect time to tackle them!

If you are just learning about this event, don’t fret – you can still sign up and join the fun! You are free to set your own pace – you can do as much or as little as you want. You can work on tasks that relate specifically to your blog or focus on blogathon-related events – it’s totally up to you! Who knows – if you’re lucky, you may win a prize for your blogging efforts!

During the Summer 2012 Blogathon, I made a huge list of items to tackle and let my Type A persona fly. This time, I am going with the flow. My plan is to:

  • See what mini-challenges are available.
  • Attend one or more Twitter Parties.
  • Complete a  few items on my To Do list.
  • Make progress while enjoying the weekend!

At the end of the Blogathon, I’ll post a wrap-up and let you know what I accomplished!

Are you participating in the Blogathon? Let us know so that we can visit your blog!

Would you like to chat during the Blogathon? Follow me at @CreateWithJoy1!

Would you like to share your Blogging Goals? Please join us at Friendship Friday!

Have a fabulous weekend and the best of luck in accomplishing your goals!

    Great way to state your goals! I always have more goals than I can possibly do. But the Blogathon is fun however we go about it! 🙂

      I know what you mean – I am the same way! Yesterday was all about getting my head in the game. Today I am more rested and hopefully more focused.
      Here’s to a great day!

    It was nice talking to you on Twitter and hope you are enjoying the Blogathon. I have to get myself more organized as I don’t seem to be getting much done this time! Oh well, today is a new day and hopefully it will be more productive. Good luck with the Blogathon Bash!

      Monica, it was a delight chatting with you last night and getting to know you more better!
      I spent yesterday trying to get some of the “low hanging fruit” out of the way –
      I got a good night’s rest and hopefully I can tackle some bigger and badder stuff today!

      I hope you have a great and productive day and I hiope I can chat with you again today at the Twitter parties!

    My goal is just to keep up with my three times a week posting, but also, to include posts that I’m proud to share.

    Hi, I found your blog through Make My Saturday Sweet on Amanda’s Books and More. I am your newest follower. A follow back to Carole’s Chatter would be fantastic. Hope you are having a good week.

  14. Danielle says:

    This is my first blogathon. I signed up way in advance and forgot all about it until late Friday. But I hope to still get a few things accomplished. And I wish you all the best on your goals.

  15. Tony MacKeand says:

    Great seeing you in the Twitter chats! I hope to get involved more with my blogging. This weekend has been great!

    I am trying to go by and visit everyone from the blogathon! (And follow on twitter/pinterest/fb..i’m doing good except on the FB..that always takes me longer!) (i’m xxpollypocket on pinterest and twitter and nicholes.autumn.rain is my fb page)

    I hope you accomplished a lot. I didn’t get as much done as i’d have liked, but…there is always next time! 🙂

    Your Cats are GORGEOUS!! I Have a orange cat, Sam.. I just realized I don’t have a picture of him on my site that would be easy to find! Well, I will remedy that..*adds to list* I used to have a gray cat Shadow, and my mom has a Gray cat big boy 🙂 I Hope to see you around !
