Bookending Spring 2019: ANNOUNCEMENT

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!
Hello friends and new friends! I am so happy to be announcing our newest event within Bookend Events today! If you don’t know already, my partner in all things, Clo (Book Dragons) and I created Bookend Events where every quarter of the year we bring the bookish community a new event to bring us closer together and meet new blogs and friends!
This April, Clo and I are so happy to be announcing Bookending Spring 2019! Just like before we will be having Hosts and prompts, however this time around we aim to bring things to another level–more fun, more epic prompts, and more community building!
So without further ado, grab a chair, put on your inner Kim Possible persona, and let’s get the sitch!

-WHAT IS IT?-

Bookending Spring is one of the quarterly events, running under the umbrella term “Bookend Events”, aspiring to bring the book blogging community closer together! Bookending Spring has a vague theme of Organization and Cleaning, but you DO NOT need to stick to this theme at all!

-WHAT COUNTS?-

  • Posting a minimum of 3 blog posts (you can use the prompts or not, up to you)
  • Taking part in the Tidyathon

Now, you don’t have to do ALL of them. You can do one or both. It’s totally up to you.

-THE RULES-

  • Book reviews don’t count as part of the event – but you’re more than welcome to still post them throughout the month. Just remember they won’t count as part of your 3 posts
  • Not restricted to a theme/topic – you can post about whatever you want, however,  we do encourage discussion posts and/or creative post types to branch out and have fun!
  • General Topic Ideas: Discussion Posts, Tags/Awards, Memes, Writing Themed Posts, Blogging Themed Posts etc.
  • You MUST include the Bookend Events logo somewhere on/within your post, this is so we know which posts are part of the event/got inspired through the event. It also helps us with blog hopping.

-HOW TO SIGN UP-

Join in on this fun by filling out the form! When you sign up, this allows us to see who’s taking part/planning to take part. It’s totally OK, if you end up not being able to take part etc. It’s to give us an idea and make sure we know who we’re blog hopping to.

CLICK HERE TO FILL OUT THE SIGN UP FORM!!!!!!

-HOSTS & PROMPTS-

As always with our events, we still have wonderful Hosts, who create prompts to help you out if you’re stuck. You don’t need to do these prompts at all, but if you want to–you totally can!!

  8. christine @ lady gets lit

    March 18, 2019 at 8:33 am

    This sounds like so much fun!! As a new-ish blogger, I really appreciate that you guys are hosting an event like this where anyone can participate. I’m always looking to find more blogging friends and this is such a fun way to stay involved in the community. Plus, as a not-so-secret Type A, I love a good excuse to clean/organize/talk about organization! Maybe I’ll even get brave and post some of my brand new bullet journal!

    1. Clo @ Book Dragons

      March 18, 2019 at 9:19 am

      I spy bullet journal talk hehe, I love bullet journal posts so I’d love to see a post on that Christine! Also high five on Type A personality and well we’re just happy people are willing to take part <3

    2. Sam || Fictionally Sam

      March 18, 2019 at 9:22 am

      OMG YES! I am stupid excited now that you are joining us! As a fellow Type A person, welcome!

  9. Laurie

    March 18, 2019 at 10:13 am

    Yes! I found some really great prompts I will take part in. I am not exactly sure how many, but probably not the prompts on a Tuesday. However, I am going to pre-schedule all of them except for the Easter tag. How can I link back to the original prompt when they are not up yet? And I prescheduled? Or should I link back after the actual prompt has gone up? I am working 32 hours a week, so I have to schedule ahead.

    1. Clo @ Book Dragons

      March 18, 2019 at 10:40 am

      If you schedule ahead, just make sure to make a note that you need to link back to the original prompt when it goes up. Also if you’re doubting whether you can link back within a few days of your post going up, just link back to a recent post of theirs until you can get round to changing that link to the original prompt link

      1. Laurie

        March 19, 2019 at 4:04 pm

        OK, thank you! I nearly always post at 6AM my time zone, unless there is a TTT, Friday Five or review scheduled for that day 🙂

        1. Sam || Fictionally Sam

          March 19, 2019 at 4:09 pm

          Thats fine! Just keep in mind not to post the prompt before the host’s prompt goes up. (i.e, if the host’s prompt goes live at 7am your time, please post yours after 7am)

          1. Laurie

            March 19, 2019 at 4:27 pm

            Okay, thank you! I will put all the things I’ve prescheduled back to draft then.

    March 18, 2019 at 10:51 am

    AAAAHHH!!! I was waiting for this !!
