Bloggiesta – The Finish Line & Survey

Bloggiesta Finish Line

You made it! Bloggiesta is coming to a close and you made it to the end!  We officially had over 250 bloggers join the fiesta.  Improvements, new skills and incredible changes were taking place.

A shout out to the incredible ladies who hosted mini-challenges: Amy from My Friend Amy (@myfriendamy), Tasha from Truth, Beauty, Freedom and Books (@heidenkind), Jen from Devourer of Books (@DevourerofBooks), Jenn from Jenn’s Bookshelf (@jennsbookshelf), Callista at SMS Book Reviews (@callista83), Trish at Hey Lady! Whatcha Readin’? (@trishheylady), Hannah at WordLily (@Wordlily), and Jennifer at Teach Mentor Texts (@mentortexts).  And thanks to Danielle from There’s a Book (@the1stdaughter) who helped me input names into the shared RSS feed and to those who hosted the flashback mini-challenges from years past.

Watch my blog in the next couple of days for prize winners.  If you posted a finish line wrap up post, feel free to link it up here on the Mr.Linky.  A post isn’t required this year but I know some of you would still like the Mr. Linky to go blog hopping. Which I highly encourage – the blog hopping that is.

New this year is an end-of-event survey which I would like to ask you to take the time to fill out.  In Bloggiesta’s of the past, I have not conducted a survey before.  This year?  This year I am craving your input, your thoughts, and general demographics.  So have at it!

And when is the next Bloggiesta?  I’m thinking June, so stay tuned for details!

Note: There is a survey embedded in this blog post. You may also complete it with this direct link.

Ole!  Now that we have all had a fantastic fiesta, Pedro is off for a siesta!

  14. I did my wrap up post today and filled out the survey last night. It was a great Bloggiesta for me; got a lot done. Need to do a lot more, though :)

  15. Thank you for hosting this! Survey is submitted. :)

    The Bloggiesta helped keep me motivated to stick to it and get it done, especially when things became difficult or I got tired. I am looking forward to the next Bloggiesta, though I’m thinking I might have to have my own personal Bloggiesta soon to tackle the last of the to-dos.

    It was a Fiesta! The Bloggiesta! Now it’s time for…a siesta…I’m going to go to bed now that the sun is up.

  16. Just finished the survey and I wanted to say again how grateful I am to have had this experience. I completed things that have been on my to do list for weeks. And they turned out better than I imagined with the help of other participants in Bloggiesta. Thanks, Natasha, for all that you did to make it happen!

  19. I came down with a cold the likes of which the world has not seen! Or, at least, I hadn’t – I was totally bedridden Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. :( I love Bloggiesta. I find it inspiring and it gives me not only good ideas but also a kick in the pants to get some stuff DONE. I just wish I’d been healthy enough to participate this time around. :/

  20. Thank you so much for hosting Bloggiesta, from Twitter I could see what a massive investment of time it was, so thank you for helping us all with our little blogs!

    Thanks also to the old-timers/HTML-experts who came up with cool mini-challenges for us!

  21. Thanks for such a fun experience! It really pushed us to get things done. And what we didn’t finish, we’re using as on going goals. Appreciate all the help and support from all the fantastic bloggers! Looking forward to June and hope we can participate even more!
