The Cherished Blogfest Turns Two!

Cherished Badge16Last year, a small group of blog-buddies organized a blogfest. We called it the Cherished Blogfest and we asked people to share, in a few hundred words, something that they cherish. Well over 100 people participated. People shared stories about things, about memories, about emotions and about other people. We shared moving stories, important stories and, more importantly, many of us made new friends.

A blogfest is a great way to meet people, see what they have to say and share your story with them. The Cherished Blogfest was the first blogfest I ever participated in and I can tell you that it was fun and it was easy:

All you have to do is to write a blog post. Post it at the designated time. Fill out a Linky thing and read a few posts.

Does that sound interesting?


Visit the new home of the Cherished Blogfest.

Copy the badge and place it on your sidebar, and help us spread the word on social media. Please use hashtag #CBF16

Above all, join us in making new connections, and renewing old ones and sharing your special toughts.

    1. I’m so glad you’re going to join us! I have to sift between 20 or so ideas, but that’s half the fun. You can sign-up without knowing what you’re writing about, you know, to keep the pressure up ;)


  1. “All you have to do is to write a blog post.” You make it sound so easy! Alas, I’m lucky to do two a month over on my blog. But I’m glad the group is excited — hope it’s fun for you all!

    1. Paul, Paul, Paul – you must have a ball cap, a beer tap handle, a TZ book that you can peck out a couple hundred words about. I realize that the editor in you won’t let you just peck something out, but, you know what I mean. It is a great way to bring attention to your wonderful blog. However, if you can’t join us, I do appreciate your cheering us on.

  2. Dan, another great Cherished Blog Fest this year! What fun! I joined last year and had to whittle down my cherished object list! Most were fleeting like sunsets. The lasting one was a photograph of my sons as youngsters. Loved participating! Happy Wednesday! 💛 Christine Elizabeth

    1. Hi Janet. Yes, just enter your blog address today. When the blogfest is active (29-31) there will be a second Linkty thing so we can preserve the actual post(s). By entering your info today, it will give people a chance to meet each other. Also, we’re going to do a little pre-promotion. I hope you will join us.


    1. Thanks but NOT SO FAST! – The actual blogfest doesn’t start until July 29. It runs three days (Fri-Sat-Sun) and there will be a 2nd list to link the actual post to at that time.

      This post was just to give folks a head’s up. You know, so you can narrow all those cherished things down to one item.
