You might have noticed this badge on my sidebar recently. This event starts today Jan 25th! If you are arriving here for the first time, welcome!
Lisa Swifka created this event in 2007. The original idea behind this giveaway event was to bring bloggers together from around the world who might never ordinarily meet and in the process possibly win a prize or many prizes along the way. 2007 had roughly 85-90 participants and friendships that are still going strong. 2008 tripled that number and in 2009 there were 911 participants! 28 countries were represented.
This is more than wanting to win something…….that is only the means…….in the end it’s about finding kindred spirits. Someone who may be fairly new to blogging, not sure how to navigate, can find others and have others find them….Some are long time bloggers and in some cases well known in the blogging community. Whatever the case it brings all of them together.
This is an INTERNATIONAL event that has had participants from the US, Canada, France, Sweden, Germany, Finland, Malaysia, Brazil, The Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, Scotland, Ireland, England,Wales, Slovenia and more. Generating a closer community, friendship and goodwill through blogging.
