In August 2014 I was part of a group of bloggers who launched and carried out the first ever Blog Staycation! Today I am excited to announce the dates for the next Staycation!
September 10th through September 14th, 2015!
If you are ready to join you can sign up for Staycation updates HERE! If you want to learn a little more, then keep on reading.
The idea behind the Blog Staycation is to allow bloggers a set time frame to dedicate towards their blog to work on simple or large updates, connect with other bloggers, share blogging resources, and tackle their blogging to do lists. Since the first Staycation the number of bloggers who participate has more than doubled and bloggers around the world continue to use this time to grow their blogs.
Here is what bloggers are saying about the Blog Staycation:
“It’s always great to have some accountability on reaching goals you set for yourself and your blog. The Blog Staycation provided this for me; plus gave me a window into other blogger’s goals and methods. I always enjoy the opportunity to get together with other bloggers, to find new ones to read, new people to meet, and new ideas to explore.” Ann from Ann About Town
“Where can you talk about hot men, wine, and all things blogging? The Blog Staycation! Join a bunch of awesome bloggers sharing their wisdom, victories, and lots of laughs.” Kristen from Maniac Mom
“Dedicating time to the BlogStaycation is dedicating some time to your blog to make it better. Participating in it has helped me to better understand so many aspects of blogging, from networking, coding, SEO, and monetization, to learning what I should be focusing on for growth.” Sarah from Ruffles and Rain Boots
“I learned so much from the chats!” Candace from Candace Creates
Here is a little more information to help you understand how the Staycation works:
