Around the Blogosphere

In order to draw attention to the creation of our network, Mighty Media is hosting a week-long event beginning September 21 known as Around the Blogosphere in 5 Days. Our intention is to follow the virtual journey of Moxie Media’s mascot as she travels around the U.S., “visiting” the sites of approximately 65 different blogs.

Our group will also promote the trek on a variety of Moxie’s social media outlets, including the network’s Facebook Fan Page, Twitter, YouTube Channel, and Flickr Photo Stream.

Prior to the start of the event, a mascot, lovingly named Moxie Mona was mailed to each of the participant’s homes. We asked all bloggers to write a post about where they live and showcase themselves with our mascot in their part of the U.S. Bloggers were also encouraged to use different types of media, such as photographs and video, to capture their time with Moxie Mona.

A complete list of the participants, as well as their respective post dates, is included below. All of Moxie Media’s founding members, including Better in Bulk, Mayhem & Moxie, Mama’s Losin’ It, Scary Mommy, and Seven Clown Circus will be hosting these links on their blogs for the duration of the event. Readers will also be able to join in on the fun by participating in various writing carnivals that will be revealed soon.

We hope you will follow along as Moxie Mona travels around the U.S. She is sure to have the adventure of a lifetime!

I'd be happy to host Mona if she wants to make a visit to Alabama the beautiful.

I could take her to see the Vulcan, a giant, naked man made of cast-iron who looks over the city of Birmingham, mooning all who dare to visit.
