Blog-a-thon :)

I signed up for a blogging challenge to get my butt in gear. 

You can check out my name on the list here:

For the entire month of May, I will blog every day.  Sounds simple enough.  It's kind of like running a 5K to me.  Once you sign up, there's no turning back!  Additionally, once it's finished, you find out how easy it really was. :)

I 've done a lot of reading and some writers suggest to blog once a day and to visit ten other blogs and leave comments to help build your own traffic.  This is partially why I have chosen to participate in the blog-a-thon. I will use this as an experiment to test the advice and see how it goes.   My blog stats allow me to see how many views I get hourly, so I will be sure to post data periodically. 

Thanks for joining me on this journey!  If there is anything you would like to read about this month, throw me a suggestion!  I'm always open to new ideas and inspiration!

I sincerely plan to post every day and stay true to myself in my topic selections, which, to me, is the biggest challenge of them all.  It is easy to write.  What is hard is originality and supreme discipline.

Wish me luck!

    Great reasons to join Blogathon 2011... Soem mirror my own: especially the "getting but in gear" part! I also couldn't agree more that writing is easy but discipline is what gets in the way. Surely this month will help us both!
    I look forward to checking in throughout!
