What is the Blog Rodeo?
Launched by CMNB in January 2013, the Blog Rodeo is an online initiative that brings together some of the top independent country music bloggers to discuss, dive into and throw in their two cents on topics surrounding the thing we all love…country music! Through individual posts and articles, linking, and social sharing, we create a network of well informed voices aimed at highlighting, celebrating and yes, sometimes critiquing all things country music. The topic at hand might be broad, or it might be more focused, but one way or the other, it’ll be country and it’ll be lively!
When Does the This Take Place?
The Blog Rodeo is currently operating on a monthly schedule in two parts: Blog Rodeo posts and the official Blog Rodeo twitter chat. Typically, both parts will take place towards the end of the month. On day one, each participating blog will post their article on the month’s topic. On day two, we all come together to hash out all the different ideas we brought to the table. Readers and country music fans are invited and encouraged to get involved with both parts of the rodeo by reading the posts and commenting and the following up with Twitter chat to weigh in with their opinions and thoughts! The Twitter chat also features special giveaways for fans and readers.
Follow Us On Twitter, @CMNBlog, to stay involved!
Twitter Chat Guidelines:
- Be courteous to all participants.
- Bullying or rudeness will not be tolerated.
