My First Blogfest!! Letters to the Future!

To celebrate 300 followers, I'm hosting my very first blogfest!!

Recently, here on my blog, I apologized to my future published self for my lack of confidence and laziness in the present, seriously delaying my career as an author. Several of you thought that was a fun idea, so I decided to make it into a blogfest so we could all give it a try!   


The rules are simple: 

1) Sign up for the blogfest on the Mr. Linky widget below.

2) On Wednesday, May 25th, write a letter to your future self and post it on your blog. It doesn't have to be an apology like mine, it can be about anything! 

3) After signing up, comment on this post (leave your email address!) if you'd like to be entered in a giveaway for the book of your choice from The Book Depository (must be under $15 and TBD must ship to you for free)

4) Help me spread the word! It's a fun and easy blogfest that your followers might like to join too!

Thanks so much for following!! I can't wait to read all your letters!

  5. What a fun idea! And congrats on surpassing 300 followers :)) I'm going to pass, only because I just finished the A-Z blogfest and I'm so blogged out I could cry. (Not really.) But I do need a break and I've told myself the month of May will be for working on my new MS. But thanks for the email, and I plan to put your link on my sidebar to help you promote!

    Have a blast with it!!!

  10. Sounds like fun. It's always interesting to conjecture about whom we'll be in the future. Writing a letter to ourselves is sort of like leaving a time capsule for our later selves to find.

  25. I'll give it a shot. I find it intriguing, not only as a writing prompt, but because of the idea that nothing posted on the internet can truly be permanently erased or undone. So we become immortal through these letters to ourselves. :))
