#BOAW2015 FAQ, Update and Prizes!

Hi Beauties!

I hope you’re enjoying the Beauty of a Woman BlogFest IV as much as I am. Once again, I’ve been blown away by writers’ insightfulness, bold sharing and uniqueness. Thank you for bringing light to real beauty, and inspiring so many—me included. The fest collectively reached well over 1,000 people on day one. BRAVA!

Since the fest is carrying on here, I thought I’d pop into my blog living room and share answers to your questions and a bit more on our fantabulous prizes!

FAQ:

Q: What if I can’t comment on a  post?

A: Two or three of the blogs either don’t allow comments, or have technical kinks to be worked out. If you’re going for maximum prize points, by commenting on all posts, simply comment on all of the posts you can! Then tweet the posts you can’t seem to comment on, including the hashtag: #BOAW2015.

To simply share your (respectful, of course!) thoughts on those posts, feel free to find that writer on Facebook, Twitter or their own website. You can also post comments on the #BOAW2015 Facebook event page.

Q: I’m running behind! Can I still enter as a blogger?

A: You sure can! Just make sure you follow the remaining guidelines detailed here. (Commenting on posts that appear after 2/23 won’t be required for full points in the prize drawing.)

Reminders:

♥ Don’t forget to enter the raffle! Doing so supports our prize sponsors and could land you a stellar prize. Enter through the fest page, or through the Giveaway tab on my Facebook author page. Bloggers and readers can enter through March 1.

♥ Support fellow festers! Participants supporting one another is one of the best parts of BOAW—and the more we do so, the more people we reach. Huge thanks to all of you who are reading and sharing others’ posts. You rock!

♥ Post your #BOAW2015 selfie! For a fun way to keep the conversations going while bringing added light to the fest and your fine work, post a selfie with the hashtag, letting us know what makes YOU feel most beautiful. Here’s mine, as an example:

  1. Hey August, so sorry I didn’t post yesterday! I was suddenly without a computer (and my post) for two days. It is up now, though: http://authorgry.com/2015/02/female-adequacy-is-a-thing/ I can’t wait to read the wonderful posts! I feel like I picked such an arbitrary subject.

  3. Hi, August!

    I’ve been out of touch, with very limited Internet access. I don’t see my Girl Boner post on the list…now that I have Internet again, here’s the link:

    • Oh my goodness, so sorry I missed this! I thought I recalled two posts coming from you, but wasn’t able to find the 2nd link. Adding it now, and will promote it!

      • Thank you! What a lovely surprise. I tried to let you know on Monday, but the coffeehouse where I went for on-the-fly wifi was having Internet difficulties…

        It was a scary post to share…still is. But good scary.

      • I love good scary! Proud of and grateful for you.

      • Good scary stretches and expands. And I’m proud of and grateful for you, too! MWAH! ❤

    • So glad you’ve been enjoying, Kourtney! In the past, I’ve tabulated points for prizes myself. (Aye carumba! LOL) The raffle and the cool variety of prizes are new this year. 🙂
