Guess that Character Blogfest!!

So I've decided to dive into the world of Blog Fests. I've joined in on a few but never taken the plunge to set up my own. However after Monday's post on having everyone guess on what my MC Stella looked like and then the big reveal today I got such rave reviews it's hard to not want to join in on the fun! Thank you to Amie from i Am alive for giving me the idea and Jessica and DL helping me with Mr. Linky!

So here are the details!!!

DATES - August 19th and 20th

August 19th
Post a snippet of the character you'd like to be identified. Try and make sure there are no descriptions of what they might look like. This blog fest is based purely on voice, action and personality. If you'd like an example you can see my post from Monday.

August 20th
The Big Reveal!!!! You will post the picture of your character with a short description of his/her personality and who you thought was the closest person to being correct (if anyone was close!) - For an example see my earlier post!

So that's it!!! If you have any questions I'm just an email away! I really hope you all take the time to sign up!! I'm working on making on a banner and once I do I'll find all of you who are participating and let you know it's up so you can add it to your blog!!!! I

Great idea!! I'm already looking forward to seeing what everybody pictures in their heads. :)

Tiffany Neal said...

Yay!

And, um, I spelled my name wrong in the linky form. Whoops.

Rose Cooper said...

Yay! This is a great idea! After reading your post from yesterday I so wanted to do something similar for my blog so this is awesome. I can't wait. You so rock!

Creepy Query Girl said...

Cool! I'm in! I've been avoiding blogfests these last few weeks because somehow I put them in my side bar and still end up missing the days they're on. I know, I suck. But I'll try and stay on the dime with this one!

Susan Fields said...

I just signed up! And your sign-up thing went great - usually I have trouble with those, but not this time. Can't wait!

The Alliterative Allomorph said...

Whoo-hoo! I'm in! :o) Me link-ied up-ied ... ;o)

Lisa Gail Green said...

It sounds like fun, but I don't usually put up any part of my actual manuscripts online.. Maybe I will just join in the guessing.

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Yay! This sounds cool. I've never participated in a blogfest before, and I never really understood what they were. But, by Jove, I think I've got it now, and I'm in.

I even managed the Linky Tool thing, after a moment or two of puzzling it over.

Cara said...

Great idea, I'm definitely doing this! :D

Jai Joshi said...

This sounds like tons of fun but I'm rushed off my feet getting ready for my flight so I won't be joining in. Have a good time discovering each other's characters!

Crystal Cook said...

FUN! I'll give it a try :)

Carrie Harris said...

How much fun is this?! I don't think I'll have the time to participate, since I'm currently crawling out from under Mount Laundry and Mount Edit, but I'll definitely be reading them!

Terry Stonecrop said...

This sounds like fun! I think I'll give it a try.

Dawn said...

Sounds awesome but I am so notoriously bad for missing the deadlines on these things :-( I will likely remember the "day of" :-) I hope it rocks for you.

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

Great idea. I'll see if I can find a picture that reminds me of my main character first before I sign up. lol.

Tamara Hart Heiner said...

that sounds like fun!!!

I'm so bad at doing these though...I just forget!

Vicki Rocho said...

You know I was thinking yesterday (or was it the day before???) that this would make a great game/blogfest.

YES! Count me in. Ought to be a blast!

Theresa Milstein said...

Fun idea. Too bad I'm going be away, so I'll miss it.

Genie of the Shell said...

This is fun! I've been posting snippets of my manuscript already, but I have characters that have not yet been introduced. I'll have to pick one of those so nobody will know what he/she looks like!

Angie said...

Great idea, but I've never honestly linked a true face to my MC. I have just a general idea of what she looks like. Obviously, I haven't put much physical description in my book. :) Love the game though.

Diana Mieczan said...

That is so perfect...I am sooooo in:) Kisses,sweetie

Christine Danek said...

Stina Lindenblatt said...

This sounds like a great blog feast.

Unfortunately, I'll be away on vacation in a tiny town, where the only internet access is at the library. Which is opened three afternoons a week. And then you can only use it for an hour each day. Talk about going unplugged. :(

Lorna said...

I've linked to this blogfest in my blog - just wanted to check that that's okay with you...? xx

elizabeth mueller said...

Jennifer, this sounds like sooo much fun! I can't wait to do it! I do love blogfests. Thank you for hosting this one!! ((hugs))

Christine H said...

I glanced at this before, but didn't look at it closely. This is a very intriguing concept, not what I thought it was at first. I will definitely participate, and mention it on my blog as well.

Marjorie said...

This sounds like fun.

Damyanti said...

All signed up, and waiting to read the entries!

Will blog about this blogfest, for sure...very intriguing.
