Blogathon Success?

The May Blogathon has ended. How did I do?

I posted only 18 out of the 31 days of May. While not stellar or true to the blogathon premise of a-post-a-day-in-the-month-of-May, I call it progress considering that in the three months prior I posted a total of eight times.

The focus placed on the blog and on blogging in general during May really helped me to begin developing a sense of what it is I’m trying to do here. It helped me to understand what blogging can do, and to see how far I can take it if I want to. It also connected me to a group of great writers who I’ve enjoyed following — and I didn’t even get to them all. Maybe I’ll have a personal June Blog-read-athon.

I also learned that it’s not easy. It takes great dedication to develop ideas, research, write, read others’ blogs, comment on them, market your blog, etc. Then there’s SEO, Twitter, Stumble Upon, Digg … oh so many things that I haven’t even touched yet. But they are on my radar now as are the people who can help me figure them out.

So for me, the blogathon was a success. It has taken me leaps and bounds ahead of where I started and introduced me to a network of people with whom I hope to continue to connect. And I’m even looking forward to next year’s event.

    I have loved reading your blog. I like to think of myself as fairly technically inclined and have enjoyed reading about different services and things you use.

    Now, I do think of myself as pretty in touch and current but have only recently decided to look into Twitter. I’m still a little lost there. So, when and if you delve into Twitter be sure to blog about it. I need a tutorial!
