The GBE - the Global Blogging Experience first started on Myspace several years ago where it was hosted by a lovely lady called Alicia. The idea is that every week a topic is set and everyone who wishes to take part has the rest of the week to create a blog on that topic. You're allowed to take your own tilt at the topic, you can write as little or as much as you want and add pictures and or music. Then once you've posted your blog, you let the host know the blog's link and everyone else in the group may visit your blog, hopefully enjoy it and leave comments. Its a nice way to get your blogs known to a wider audience and very often make a lot of new friends.
I made a lot of lovely friends taking part in the original GBE, amongst them my 'virtual' sister Elizabeth Grace. Beth has decided to host GBE2 via a Facebook group, though with the twist that most people will be using proper blogging sites like Blogger, Blogspot, Wordpress etc to create their blogs on. If you'd like to join in, and you're on FB, please join this Facebook group:
