I’ve mentioned the “big event” that I’ve got coming up a few times this week. Now the time is finally here to kick it off. As a quick introduction, a few of my closest mommy blogger friends and I have been working REALLY hard to put together a site called Mighty Media.
We’ve gathered a few bloggers with “moxie” (ie- courage, guts, energy, know-how, skill, initiative) to work together quarterly and promote companies we believe in, while keeping content on our sites fun and important to us.
To help draw attention to what being moxie is all about we enlisted the help of the only person we knew who could find moxified women across the United States and unite them through a week long event filled with fun/interactive posts, giveaways, and blog hopping.
Mona is traveling the states via the blogosphere in an attempt to unite women with moxie while teaching us a bit about what’s happening in their neck of the woods.
Starting Monday and continuing through to Friday, Mona will visit eight to ten different states a day and introduce us to women with moxie, in what can only be described as the fastest traveling any doll has ever done in the history of traveling dolls.
I will link to the people she is visiting and you will have a chance to follow Mona on her journey and discover things going on outside of your happy little home.
Like baseball games…
And Crocodile hunting…
CRIKEY MONA!! There’s just no telling WHAT she’ll be up to!!
When Around The Blogosphere is over you can tell your friends how well traveled you are and how you have visited all fifty states in less than a week…just don’t tell them you visited the them by following a plush doll on her blog hopping journey. Go ahead and leave that part out.
In addition to coming here every day and following the list of bloggers Mona is visiting in each state, you can also interact by participating in daily carnivals (memes) hosted by myself and my co founding Mighty Media partners. Linking your blog on these sites when you participate will be a great opportunity to get your blog a little extra traffic and it’s also a fun way to interact in the blogging community. You might discover a weekly meme you didn’t even know existed!
Here’s how you can participate (and how I’ll be participating throughout the week with you):
Monday, September 21st:
Mona will be showing you what she did in the first ten states she visited. You will meet at least one blogger in each of those ten states. This is a great day for all of us to start thinking about and preparing posts for the remaining week’s carnivals.
Tuesday, September 22nd:
You can participate and link up to Tuesday Tribute hosted by Mayhem & Moxie. Since summer has officially ended, let’s take a moment to look back and pay tribute to one of the season’s most beloved past-times, the summer vacation. Write a tribute to that special aspect from your summer vacation. Options include: 1) the most outrageous person you met while traveling, 2) the best (or worst) hotel you ever stayed in, 3) someone on your trip who saved the day, 4) the weight you gained while on vacation, 5) the book that made your vacation endurable.
Wednesday, September 23rd:
You can participate and link up to Wordful Wednesday hosted by Seven Clown Circus by posting pictures with a travel-related theme. Show us a picture from a time when you took a trip like Mona, e.g., what you did over your summer vacation, pictures from a favorite trip, etc.
Thursday, September 24th :
You can participate and link up to Writer’s Workshop with Mama’s Losin’ It. The writing prompts are as follows:
1) If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
2) Moxie is defined as the ability to face difficulty with spirit and courage; bold energy. Describe a time when you showed moxie.
3) Write a poem about a loved one who has shown you moxie. What have you learned from them?
4) If you were a super hero, what would your super power be and why?
5) A superhero can save you from what ails you….what is your request?
Friday, September 25th:
After visiting the remaining seven states Mona will be returning, exhausted I’m sure, to the Golden State for a little R and R. On this day you can participate and link up to Give Me Your Best Shot hosted by me! Instead of the typical “best shot” from the week, you will be asked to show a photo with a “Super Heros” theme….whether it’s a picture of kids dressing up in super hero costumes or real life super heros that have done something to achieve super hero status in your eyes. These pictures don’t have to be taken this week.
Whew! Sound like fun?
Or totally overwhelming?
Or just overwhelmingly fun?
I think it sounds like a lot when it’s all listed out like that, but really if you break it down day by day, it’s not that much.
To play along all you need to do is click on the links to the different sites Mona is showcasing daily and link up to that days coordinating carnival activity.
