Ready...Set...Blog!

Bloggiesta begins now and runs through Sunday the 23rd (technically the wee hours of Monday morning). You can really start whenever you want within that time but official hours are 8am to 8am (wherever you are). The hours spent on the challenge do NOT need to be in a row. Use the entire 72 hour time frame and see what you can do with it. It’s your call as to how much you want to put into it. But you have to put something into it or it’s not a challenge.

Bloggiesta is hosted by Maw Books. It's not to late to sign up! For details click here
