If you’re wondering when we are going to open the sign-up list for the Cherished Blogfest, you’re not alone. Several people have been asking. The good news is that we are preparing for this popular blogging event, but we are going to change the date. The 2017 edition of the Cherished Blogfest will take place in mid-October. The list will be active from Friday, October 13th through Sunday, October 15th.
There are two important reasons for changing to the date: First, a lot of people who wanted to participate last year, told us that they were away on vacation the last week of July. Second, several of the blogfest organizers are also co-hosting the “We Are the World” blogfest (WATWB, and since WATWB runs on the last Friday of every month, there would be a potential conflict, as well as a possible co-host-overload situation.
Beginning next week, we will be re-blogging some previous Cherished Blogfest entries. This will continue through early October, when we will publish the information about the 2017 blogfest.
By the way, if you’re interested in spreading a good story, I urge you to consider joining the WATWB. It’s easy, it’s fun and I think it’s important. If you want more information, take a look here.
