#Cherished Blogfest Blogging EngagementBlogfests, blogathons, blog carnivals, blog hops, or whatever you want to call them, are great ways to connect and increase your traffic, assuming of course, that you make the effort to network. Some use these opportunities merely as link drops and that’s a shame. It can also apply to those hosting such events, so it’s best to be discerning and find the right ones. Last thing you want to do is waste your time.

Have I got a Blogfest for you! 

Let’s make some new Bloggy Friends!


#Cherished Blogfest

Hosted by:
DamyantiDaily (w)rite  /  Dan AntionNo Facilities  /  Paul RuddockEchoes of the Pen

Their directive:

Often, objects lead us to memories.

The objects we hold most dear, harbor the most cherished memories.

For the CHERISHED Blogfest, we invite you to talk to us about one of your cherished objects.
Tell us what it is, post a picture of it if you like, and tell us why you cherish it.

Keep your post to below 500 words.

Join us on the 24th to 26th of July 2015 in sharing memories, emotions, information.
We’ll read and comment on each others’ posts, get to know each other better,
and hopefully, make or renew some friendships.

Easy and fun!

  1. I’m in! Just 10 entries after yours, Debbie 😉 Looking forward to it–and to everyone else’s objects of memory and endearment 😀

  2. Cool idea, Debbie! Thanks for letting us know about this. Can you believe that I can’t think of one single item just now? Let me give some more thought and then come back if I do find one!

  3. This does sound like a great blog hop but I have to think about it. Today is not a good day for thinking for me.

    1. It should be fun, Lee, but I know you’re busy offline these days. Thanks for taking the time to drop by. Enjoy your holidays! 🙂

    1. Hi Francene; This one is shaping up to be quite popular! 🙂 Great way to connect with new people. Thanks for dropping in.

    1. Great! Looking forward to your post, Parul. 🙂 Yes, it’s about one item and you can post it any time between Friday and Sunday.

  4. Never heard of a blog hop or blog carnival before! What is the latter? 😉 Also, not sure about “the code” in terms of when to use etc. Oh, and I have to think of my cherished object as I gave it away! Now I have to see what else I have! 😉 <3

    1. Hi Elly; Blogfests, blogathons, blog carnivals, blog hops are all different words for the same thing. You participated in the A to Z Challenge, which is a big blogfest. 🙂 If you want to participate, all you have to do is add your blog link to the list, (where it says “You are next, Click here to enter), then publish your post between Friday, July 24 and Sunday, July 26. Of course, the idea is to visit others, comment on and share posts. Meet some new friends; reconnect with old ones, etc. Don’t worry about “the code”. That’s only required if you want to show the entire signup list on your blog like you see here.

  5. Hey I’ve scheduled a post too! I usually don’t do bloghops; I only participated in A-Z last April. When I saw this, I thought why not! 😀

  6. I have no idea what this is about, but it appears to be something that interests you, Debbie. You have that aura of enthusiasm about you. It just glows… Have fun with this!

    1. It’s a social networking event for bloggers, Myke. 🙂 Designed to make new friends, re-connect with old ones and increase interest (perhaps even gain new followers), for one’s blog. Not your thing, I imagine, but 120 people are interested, so far. Thanks for dropping in, though. Have a good week!
