100-Followers Blogfest: “Inanimation”

Question of the Day: After the release of her newest album, Femme Fatale, and recent publicity, do you think Britney Spears is really “coming back” or do you feel that all this is just a desperate want and need to go back to her glory days in the ’90s?

So a few days ago, it came to my attention that…..I HAVE FINALLY REACHED 100 FOLLOWERS!!! Well, I’m sure you could easily guess that my first reaction was: EEK!!!! My second reaction was…PARTY TIME!!! I mean, I knew this HAD to call for some sort of celebration. And so therefore I present to you….

This is my very first time hosting a blogfest (ever), and I couldn’t be more excited to share this special moment with “y’all.” *tears through smiles*

The idea is to write an entry of NO MORE THAN 1000 words that somehow incorporates the personification of inanimate objects. It can be a poem, a short short, a letter (perhaps to your favorite childhood toy?), a fairytale, a scene from a dream, or even a song–anything you want! It can be something you’ve written in the past or it could be totally brand new…it’s all up to you!

Please remember:
-No prizes, sadly, as I am a poor college student. But if there were prizes and if money wasn’t an option, then I would totally buy each and every one of you a giant sprinkle cupcake with a shimmering firework on top. But yes, yes, this is just for total fun and sharing…AND, of course, to celebrate my achieving 100-followers :)

-You’ve got over a month to think of something! Post your entry on your blog on Saturday, May 14, 2011.

-On May 14, be sure to go around and check out everyone else’s entries!

-People love shiny things and visuals, right? It’s not required, but it would be great if you added the Blogfest Banner (up there *pokes up*) so everyone knows what on earth that angry letter to your toaster is for. And, of course, you may add any of your own images that may complement your Inanimation post.

-Tweets/Facebook posts/blog entries/sidebar links and other forms of advertising about this blogfest would all be greatly appreciated!! You can use the banner above or this mini one:

So what are you waiting for?

  1. Hi,

    Congrats on 100!

    I’ve snatched your banner and shall post up pronto. You can go to Linky Tools and get an auto signup system for blogfesting. Makes life easier for the host and participants. http://www.linkytools.com/

    BTW: it may only be me, but your blog lagged on booting up on screen, but I haven’t experienced same elsewhere.


  2. lovely idea and congrats on reaching 100.

    and at first i thought britney was coming back, but it seems like she still has a long way to go. maybe she should change her career title and do something else in the industry–christina is judging on singing shows now.

    and if you were to create a facebook page for your blog you know i’d follow it!

    Congrats on your 100 followers. I agree that the linky tool will make it all so much easier.

  4. Cheryl, you are too sweet! <3 And I definitely agree, I think it’s time for Brit-Brit to find a side job perhaps, instead of trying to go back to “the way she was” before.

    I tried LinkyTool but sadly when I inserted to code it didn’t show up when I previewed the post. :/ If anyone knows what the problem might be, any advice would be greatly appreciated! Because of the LinkyTool fail, I have to depend on the magic of comments for now to deliver blogfest links and such!

  5. Trisha says:

    I don’t know anything about linky tool things – it’s something I’m deliberately putting off learning about. hehe. Anyway, this blogfest sounds fun, so count me in!

    Also, big congrats on reaching 100 followers!!

  6. Trisha says:

    P.S. your small image says March, not May :D

  7. Congrats on the 100! Woohoo! I’m Wendy, http://www.worldofwendylu.blogspot.com, chocolate pecan oatmeal raisin cookie. Will work on getting banner on my site, as I am techno challenged.

  8. Wendy – I absolutely love oatmeal raisin cookies, but I’ve never heard of a chocolate pecan oatmeal raisin one! Sounds chunky. :P

    Thank you so much Trisha! :) And I have changed the banner so it says MAY, haha.

  9. Congratulations on 100 Followers, that’s awesome! Definitely try Mr. Linky again. It’s the only way to manage these things so that everyone’s link is available. Are you friends with Tessa Conte at Tessa’s blurb? Or Arlee Bird at Tossing it out (one of the co-hosts of A to Z). Either of them can help you with Mr. Linky.

    I definitely want to participate. Let us know when the Linky is up and we’ll start ‘advertising’ the blogfest. Great idea, btw!

    hey thanks for inviting me. :) Anyway, congratulations!

    I’ll try to put up an entry. thanks again :)

  12. L'Aussie says:

    Your blog was fine booting up but I’m with Francine. We demand our Linky LInks!!! We’ll forgive you seeing it’s your first time.

    I’ve been looking away when blogfests are mentioned as I’m too addicted and don’t get enough WIPing done, but this looks like a challenge I could learn from and I’d like to help you in your celebs. And you did give me a personal invitation which is always a bonus.

    So, RA, I’ll take your banner for my L’Aussie Writing blog and my entry will be posted there. I hope you find us all seeing there’s no linky.


    L’Aussie Travel A -Z Challenge H is for Haiti, I is for Ibiza.

  13. Hey all! I tweaked around with LinkyTools and FINALLY got it to show up. :) You may now begin adding your blogs. Let me know if the Linky List doesn’t work for you or if you find any other problems (hopefully there aren’t any!).

    Thanks for all your support everybody. I can’t wait to read your entries.

  14. Tessa Conte says:

    I’m in, I’m in!!!

    (I think I signed up but my name hasn’t shown up on the linky yet…hmmm…)

    I’ll put your logo up, too ; P

    Tessa’s Blurb – Dream. Imagine. Write.

  15. J.C. Martin says:

    Thanks for inviting me to the blogfest! I’m afraid I won’t have the time, what with a deadline for a manuscript coming up. But I’ll help you spread the word!

  16. Stephen Tremp says:

    I’m not a fan of all the cheesiness that is Britney Spears, although I did like it when her head exploded in the third Austin Powers movie.

  17. Congrats! I’ll have to think about it. I have to meet some deadlines right now and I can’t miss them but I might… I might.

  18. Trisha says:

    Yay, I signed up! :)

  19. Mia Hayson says:



    Congrats on the followers!


  20. Talli Roland says:

    Woooo! Massive congrats on the 100 followers! I’m the worst at remembering blog fests, but I may sign up nearer to the time.

  21. Lydia K says:

    Congrats!!!! That is super awesome!
    Don’t kill me but I am horrible with writing blogfests. I will post your contest on my sidebar.

  22. Summer Ross says:

    Congrats on the followers! I’ve posted your blogfest on my blogfest tab.
    Have a great day!

  23. Congratulations on 100 Followers! :)

    I just signed up–it sounds like a fun blogfest!

  24. I’m there, The Father willing. (I drive a lot of scary rural roads at night, delivering rare blood to distant hospitals.)

    Congrats on the 111 followers. I’m one of them. Thanks for the kind words on my blog about Gypsy. Roland

  25. Nahno McLein says:

    Congrats on the 111 follower already.

    I wish I could take part in your blogfest, but 1000 for a post is just not possible, especially with the A-Z challenge running. But next time I’m sure I’m in.
