Starting Out Small--Small Packages Blogfest

Recently most of my blogging has been involved in one or another blog rings, fests, or memes.  For someone like me, that often times struggles a bit for writing topics, it's been very helpful.  I thought I'd start one of my own, one based around smaller blogs. 

There's a lot of emphasis out there on building follower numbers.  We all want to reach a few more people, but a lot of times we forget that sometimes quality is better than quantity.

This blogfest is built around the idea of slowly building numbers of loyal followers that are actually that: followers.  More than just a notch in a cyber-belt, but people who will read and comment on each other's blogs.

The rules of the blogfest are simple:

  1. Don't talk about the blogfest.  Sorry, I couldn't help myself.  In actuality, please let others know.  Use the button, subscribe to the Mr. Linky, Facebook, Twitter, the works.  
  2. You must have 150 followers or less on your first go around.
  3. Post on the given topic on the given date, and give a link to the original post, so everyone can see the list of bloggers contributing.
  4. Follow at least one new blogger.
  5. Make at least three comments on other blogs.
Let me know if you have any suggestions.

Remember the days when TV shows used to have special holiday episodes?  I know, it's been a long time.  What's your favorite Halloween episode from a TV show? 
If your one of those young people that doesn't remember when TV was fun, what's your favorite scary TV show or movie?

That sounds like a great idea! And it is quality not quantity that matters. Yes, I'm boggled by how many follow me, but a large portion of those are good bloggy friends.

Hope you have big success with this!!
