Resurrection Blogfest II

Guess whose second anniversary of blogging is coming up.

C'mon, now—GUESS!

Didja guess me?  'Cause if you did, YOU'D BE RIGHT!!!

(Cue ominous rumble of thunder.)

Y'all, I hereby announce...

Sometimes, dead posts come back!
RESURRECTION
BLOGFEST
II!


For last year's Resurrection Blogfest, participants resurrected a blog post from the first year of blogging that they felt didn't get enough love the first time around. For Resurrection Blogfest II, I invite folks to resurrect a blog post published between November 8, 2012 and November 6, 2013 (or, since my first Resurrection Blogfest, whether you participated or not) that you think ought to see the light of day one more time before it shuffles off this mortal coil.

There will be PRIZES!!!

Here be the rules:
  1. Sign up by entering your blog's name and URL on the linky-list, below. The linky-list will close after 11:59pm EST* on Thursday, November 7, 2013.
  2. Upload the blogfest badge in this post to the sidebar of your blog and link it back to this announcement post, to help spread the word. (It's not a "button" and there isn't a code for it; you'll have to download the image, upload to your blog's sidebar, and manually link it back to this post.)
  3. Follow me on the Twitter (@GothMomLite) and re-tweet anything with this tag: #ResurrectionBlogfestII. (Folks without Twitter accounts are welcome to participate, but must promote the blogfest on some other social media platform.)
  4. On November 7, your blog post must feature the blogfest badge as well as your resurrected blog post. Be sure to include the date on which it was originally posted and link back to that original post.
  5. I'll review all entries to make sure they fit the above criteria. Failure to have the badge on your sidebar, in your post, the resurrected post, and/or the date and link to the original post will disqualify you from the drawing.
  6. Three winners will be selected at random to win $20 Amazon gift cards!
  7. Winners should be announced on or around Monday, November 11. (God willing.)
Participants should know that:
  • *All days/times are based on EST
  • Subject matter is up to participants but whatever the topic, the post must have originally appeared on your blog on/since November 8, 2012 up to/including November 6, 2013.
  • It's OK to sign up if you've only just started blogging and only have a few posts in your bloggy repertoire.
  • It's also OK for participants to enter more than one blog, however, in the spirit of Highlander—THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE prize per participant.
  • Participants whose Resurrection Blogfest II posts are not up by 11:59pm EST on Nov. 7 will be removed from the linky-list.
  • Topics/blogs with adult themes should have the appropriate preliminary warning before any participants or readers see your blog/post. Any participants' links that take the clicker to adult subject matter without warning will be removed at my discretion. And don't give me any crap about not knowing what I mean by "adult themes," 'cause you totally do.
  • Participants are expected to read and comment on other participants' entries beginning November 7 and on through that weekend (based on last year's sign-ups, this should not be an unmanageable number of blog posts to read through/comment on over the course of four days).
  • The three $20 Amazon Gift Cards are to be sent to the respective winners via e-mail.

Peeps, this has to be one of the easiest blogfests going, seeing as I'm not making you come up with any new content for it. Sign up and Tweet the hell out of this blogfest already, sheesh.

(Whether you choose to participate or not, please help me get the word out by sharing this post on the social media platform of your choice. You can do this easily by clicking one of the icons just above this post's tag: "Posted by Mina Lobo at 12:00 AM." THANKS!)

The image used for the Resurrection Blogfest II badge was taken from a pic snapped by me.

  6. I LOVE the idea for this hop. I was too late to join last year. I may have to go and see if I have anything re-post worthy to join in this time.

    I know it makes me demented and sad, but still social since I only blog. No Twitter or Facebook for me. So I'll put the word out over at TiC.

  10. Ya know, it really doesn't feel that long ago that you were doing the FIRST blogiversary celebration! I can't believe nearly a year has gone by. ARGH!!!!! That means it's not far off MY blogiversary either. I don't know if I'll bother doing anything this year. I should, but don't know if I will. :P

    1. It's a bit of work, but it's fun! Though I think bloggers who've been around for a while seem to be experiencing blog hop/fest burn-out. I certainly have! :-)

    2. Gee, now that I think about it, my 2nd blogoversary is coming up too. I need to start thinking about what I want to do for it as well. Time sure does fly, doesn't it?

      Delete
    3. This year seems to have spun a bit out of my control. And yes, think up your hop stuff! Your bloggiversary's in January, I think?

      Delete
    4. Yes it is. January 9th, to be exact.

      Delete
  11. Good idea for a blogfest, and good idea to sync up international times (which I totally forgot to do in my cover reveal. :P ). I'm in full marketing/promo mode, so I'm posting only new stuff. But your prizes are excellent, and I'm sure you'll all have fun! :-)
