My first Blogfest!!!!

Update: If you have been directed to this page from someone else's blog, please click through to my post that can be found here.

So, I was talking to Krista at Mother. Write. Repeat. and the topic of why I write came up. I had what felt like a pretty authentic, good reason to write. And not just to write, but to write the things I do. It got me to thinking. Why do other people write? What inspired them? All of which leads to this:

Photobucket

I want to hear why you write. Let's all talk about it on Wednesday, June 29. Sign up in the list below, grab the widget from my sidebar and post it on your blog and share it with your friends. At the end of the blogfest, I'll choose a random winner from the participants for a special prize! What are you waiting for, friends? (if you are reading in a reader, you'll probably have to click through to sign up. Sorry about that.)

I'll have to think about what to say - there are so many reasons!

Oh, Kayeleen, I'm not sure I can! I'm running a pretty massive contest that week on my blog. Maybe I'll have to jump in a week late...

Liesl said...

Sounds fun, I'm in!

I was just thinking about this today, so it's a good time to write it down.

Plus I am hosting my first blogfest, too...
AND we have the exact same amount of followers...

I think it's a sign :)

Sounds really fun, except I'm going to be out of town. Maybe I'll schedule the post and just try to catch up on everyone else's posts when I can (i.e. Internet connection). Found this blogfest through Tara Tyler's blog. I see Shelly Brown *waves hello*

Sharon - inspiring stories said...

Sounds like an interesting blogfest. I just added my name. I'm running a signed book giveaway at my blog this week if anyone is interested.

Sylvia Ney said...

Sounds like fun!

Beverly Diehl said...

Count Me In! It'll be delightful to bore other writers with why I write, instead of just the family.

Marewolf said...

Fun! Now to try and figure out how to put this linky-loo on my blog...

This sounds fun! I can't wait until Wednesday!

Is there a word count, because my fingers are happy for some reason and have a lot to write? :)

Linny said...

A first timer for this kind of thing, but happy to give it a go. :-)
