Bloggiesta is almost here!
Today, I'm so excited to share with you the list of mini challenges that we have going as part of our Bloggiesta celebration for this go around.
As you probably know, Bloggiesta mini challenges are hosted by several different willing and able bloggers who have something they feel they can teach us about blogging....something they've done and learned from, or something they've researched and learned about and can then share with us.
Many of the following topics were ones suggested by you at the end of the last Bloggiesta! I hope you are as pleased with them all as I am! Be sure to go around and visit as many of them as you can, give them lots of love, and in the process learn some new things and try some of the challenges proposed by our hosts.
Some of the challenges will have prizes attached... that's up to the individual host to handle, so be sure and follow their stipulations for how to win their prizes.
Remember, Bloggiesta officially starts tomorrow when you can head on over to There's a Book for the Starting Line link up, and share with us your To Do Lists!
Also over at Danielle's, you'll find links to past Bloggiesta Mini Challenges. If you are looking for how to do something specific, chances are there's a mini challenge for that!
In the meantime, here's the list of all the NEW mini challenges. Go check them out and start adding to your To Do Lists!
