Blogathon Coming Up!

Just a little warning that my dribble of posts this past month is about to turn into more of a flood as I will be participating in the Blogathon, hosted by the wonderful Michelle Rafter of WordCount. The challenge is to post every day during the month of May.

I have to confess I've been stingy with posts this month to save up some ideas for May, so that I can get off to a running start. I'm also greatly looking forward to the reenergizing I know the Blogathon will bring, as well as the fun sense of community with other bloggers, writers, and readers. I participated last year and while it was a lot of work and just a tad scary, it was also immensely rewarding.

If you are also participating, please leave a comment to let me and other readers know, so I/we can be sure to visit your blog over the first few days of the Blogathon. Happy Blogging!


  1. Good for you! I'm taking part in my own challenges this month, so I'm glad I know I won't be the only one REAL busy! : )

  2. Hey Annette, does it count as a blog post if it's only a couple of paragraphs and a link? I have a lot I'm juggling right now, but I like the idea of expanding my blog community.

  3. I have signed up for this year!! I hope my current determination sticks with me until the finish line. Annette, would you pass me down any kind of tips or insight how to make Blogathon enjoyable rather than stressful?

  4. I am looking forward to your posts- and now that I've read this I have to go back and edit mine to show the links...oh my- I'm thinking I'm crazy to try to jump into the blogathon this year- but hey, I guess everyone knows I'm crazy!! :) Can't wait to read your upcoming posts!!

  5. Nicole - good luck with your challenges!

    Julie - I actually prefer short blog posts - I really don't have the time to read a long one, so one paragraph with a link sounds great to me.

    Sun Hee - good for you! Michelle Rafter offers great tips, and be sure to follow her calendar for special events. And keep your posts short, see my comment to Julie. Often, you can make a few short ones out of a long one you were thinking of.

    Anjuli - glad to have you back, and happy to hear you're jumping into the Blogathon this year! See you around!
