"___Fest": The Aftermath



Aloha,

I’m in the middle of WIP edits, so here be short, sweet post.

 

As Cheers, _________ BlogFest went from an idea to reality over the last few months – and then morphed into ___Fest, a lot of my blogging focused a little on that no-hyperlink guy who, earlier this week, was so awesome to open his doors to a posting of roastings.

When Monday swung around and ____Fest went LIVE! I knew already that we have an awesome community, but I was absolutely blown away by the positive response.

More than One Hundred and Forty (none related to me) signed up AND participated in ___Fest, and from what ____ said, he himself visited nearly 200 blogs during the first seven minutes of the fest, (he is a bit of a slacker, I'm sorry.)

Anyhoo, in the immediate aftermath of the Best. Fest. Test. (that I’ve been involved with) I tip my beloved LA Angels ball cap first to:




Second, THANK YOU to all my dear Bluddies (Blogger buddies.)

Reading the oh-so-different flash fictions was SO. MUCH. FUN.

Along the way, I watched a video, read a poem and even saw the effort it took to bring a stick mini-Alex to life. :)

(You all have an amazing, creative mind – I swear! You should be a writer! Isn't that easy to do? And, you’d be great at it.)

(While ___Fest is over, there are rumblings of another different, but similar in a differing way Fest for Christmas 2013, so watch this space…)

Remember, nothing is impossible…except for the Rangers resigning Josh Hamilton. :)

Finally, I would be bereft of all social skills if I didn’t mention the person who made this possible:

____ _ _________ !

 PS… ____ is announcing the winners of ___Fest today, so click here to find out who the lucky bloggers are :)

Oh, if you’re wondering, I’ve written about ____ so much that the _, _, _, _, letters on my Qu_rty k_ybo_rd are worn out…

Thanks Madman K, you're the MAN! This blogfest was a success and sooo much fun. Not only did we get to read some truly fun and creative posts, roast the Ninja, but I also got to meet some new blogging buddies. This community is AMAZING. (:

I had lots of fun in the fest - and you must be really good at kids' songs where you have to hum a word instead of saying it ;)

Suzi said...

Boy, I thought you said that post was going to be short and sweet. :)

I didn't participate in AlexFest, but I read a lot of postings. He seems like a pretty terrific guy.

Love the stick mini-Alex!

That was hilarious! (I see my name did slip in there once.) And sorry, I'll try to do better and visit more next time.
Thanks again. Words can't express it enough. It's been an awesome week!

I loved Elise's cut out-- so cute and clever. There were actually so many great tributes in the form of songs, videos, banners. What a clever group! Unfortunately, I was fresh out of clever, just had gratefulness to give. It was a wonderful way to say thanks to Alex, Mark.

T. Drecker said...

It was definitely a lot of fun! So... when are you guys planning the next one? ;)

Cassie Mae said...

LOVED! So much fun, and brilliant idea Mark-O :) Can't wait to see who you embarrass next time, lol!

Some of the posts were really original. Alex has helped so many. Anyone who didn't participate in the blogfest was a sorry rascal.

Really great recap, Madman. And I'm sure _____ is very happy with how the ____fest went. ;-)
