BIP Week 3: Bingo Winners!

2009BIP 150x210Week 4 of the Blog Improvement Project was Blog Post Bingo.  Of the people who signed Mr. Linky that they participated, 8 of them completed all 10 posts: Dorte H at DJs Krimiblog (with a little fudging), Suey at It’s All About Books, Sherrie at Just Books, Sarah at Behold, the thing that reads a lot, Jackie at Farm Lane Books, Margot at Joyfully Retired, Chelsea at Book Maven’s Blog, and Becky at Becky’s Book Reviews and Young Readers and Operation Actually Read Bible.

After using the random number generator based on their Mr. Linky number, the winner of the $10 Amazon e-gift certificate is:

Suey from It’s All About Books!!

Suey did a great Opinion Post on the benefits of fiction versus nonfiction, a How-To Post on how to run a book fair, participated in the alphabet meme for her Long Post, and did some 19th Cenury definitions for the Definition Post.  Those are just a few of the neat posts she did for the project — be sure to check them out!

I also used the random number generator to chose two other participants to also be featured in this wrap up post.  The two other winners this week are:

Sherrie at Just Books and Beth F at Beth Fish Reads!!

My favorite post that Sherrie did this week was her Link Post about best books of 2008 because it led me to a cool list from NPR and because doing the post helped her learn how to do links in the first place!  My favorite post from Beth was her How-To Post about how to make buttons — something cool and really useful for other new bloggers out there.  I don’t have anything for you guys, just a hearty congratulations from me and the rest of the participants.

Make sure you check out all of these awesome bloggers, and thanks to everyone who participated!

Also, a question for everyone: I’m thinking about repeating a challenge like this later in the BIP, leave a comment and let me know what you think!

    Way to go Suey!!!! Good job!

    Awwwww. Thanks for the shout-out!

    I would love to see this type of challenge again in the early fall. I’d be curious to see how many of these types of posts become part of our usual blogging.

    Thanks for coming up with a great challenge.

    Congratulations to the winners and thanks to you Kim for another two weeks of fun 🙂
    And I am sure I am not the only one who is really looking forward to seeing what you´ll come up with next.

    Congratulations Suey! Bingo was a lot of fun. Thanks for all your work, Kim.

    Congrats to all the winners! And I think it would be fun to repeat this one later on!

  • Louise February 16, 2009, 10:50 am

    Yay! Congrats to Suye and to the honorable mentions. Way to go all!!! I am so looking forward to see what is up next and would love a “challenge” like this past one later on. A real good idea!

  • Kitten February 16, 2009, 10:55 am

    I’d like to see another challenge like this, since I didn’t get to participate in the first one!

  • Kitten February 16, 2009, 10:56 am

    By the way, is it too late to sign up for the BIP?

  • Margot February 16, 2009, 11:59 am

    Congratulations to Suey, the Honorables and to everyone who participated. It was a fun stretch of my creativity to try to come up with the different types of posts and that felt good. Yes, it would be great to be challenged again later on. Right now I have other improvements to my blog that I need to work on. Thanks, Kim, for your excellent leadership on the BIP.

  • Suey February 16, 2009, 3:15 pm

    Thanks everyone! I thought this was a blast to do and so of course, I say a big yes to another similiar challenge.

    And again, thank you so much Kim! 🙂

    Congrats to the winners!!! I forgot to sign Mr. Linky, but I enjoyed the experience! It challenged me to think of HOW I was writing the material. If you did something similar again I think it would be great.

  • Elizabeth February 16, 2009, 7:34 pm

    Congratulations to the winners!
    I thought this was a great idea; it was extremely challenging for me. I really enjoyed reading the different posts people shared and definitely noticed a difference in their blogs.
    I would play again!

  • Jack February 16, 2009, 7:42 pm

    Congratulations to all the winners! This was a fun challenge 🙂

  • CoversGirl February 17, 2009, 7:38 am

    Congratulations to everyone who managed all 10! I’d love another challenge like this.

  • Care February 17, 2009, 11:46 am

    Congrats to everyone.

  • Ali February 18, 2009, 1:58 am

    Would love to see this one again, since these past two weeks have practically been too crazy for me to blog at all, much less improve my blog!

  • Callista February 19, 2009, 5:01 pm

    Congratulations everyone! I didn’t have a chance to check out anyone else’s posts so I hope to do that.

    Although I couldn find the time to finish all 10 (especially since I’m doing BIP with 2 blogs) I did enjoy it and would love to see something similar again.

  • Dawn February 21, 2009, 7:32 pm

    Congrats to the winners … and, yes! I’d love to see this particular challenge again. In the meantime, I’ll be trying to vary the types of posts on my blog (on my own, without your prodding!)

  • Inkpot February 23, 2009, 8:43 am

    Congrats to the winners. I loved this challenge, Kim, I think a repeat later in the year would be really cool.


  • Kim February 23, 2009, 1:09 pm

    Awesome, thank you for the feedback everyone! I think the consensus is that this was fun and we should try it again, which is what I was hoping for 🙂 Maybe I’ll try to schedule it for a time when there will be three weeks between tasks instead of the usual two so more people have a chance to get all 10 done.
