Blogiesta Ole'

Today is the first day of Blogiesta Party, which is a great party to help you fix your blog. Wait Suey explains it way better, here it is:
It's time! Do you plan to fiesta with us the weekend of March 30, 31 and April 1? Do you have things you'd like to do on your blog that you haven't managed to get to in forever? Do you want to do those things with lots of other bloggers from all over? Talk things over with them? Bounce ideas off them? Learn from them? Teach them too?
If so, you will not want to miss the latest installment of Bloggiesta!A blogathon created nearly three years ago by Natasha of Maw Books so we could do those very things listed above!
To participate, please sign the Mr. Linky below with a link to your blog, specifically to a post stating your intention to join us on this weekend. We'd love for you to help us spread the news so we can be sure to find all those who'd like to join the fun.
Remember, the level of commitment is up to you. We'd love for you to find lots of time to devote to blogging with us during those three days, but if you have just one day that you can join us, or even just a few hours of one day, please do not hesitate to sign up.
If you decide to participate, here's what you can expect:
  • to spend time that weekend (as much or as little as your schedule allows) working on your blog
  • to create a to do list to share on your blog and link up with other participants
  • to hopefully participant in several mini challenges and learn something new
  • to connect with other participants through blog hopping or twitter
  • to make new blogging friends!
  • to come away at the end of the three days with a spiffed up blog!
  • If all that sounds like something you'd like to do, please write a post letting us know and link up! OLE!
