Blogging 'Bout Boys

The challenge for any blogger is blogging consistently. It's one thing to have ideas -- and quite another to commit to keying them in via the keyboard.

So I've once agained signed up for the WordCount Blogathon. If you were around last year, you may remember the May blogathon as the time I posted most frequently, the time of guest posts or the time Ron Doyle posted a photo of a chimp on my blog. If you weren't aroud last year, let me explain.

The Blogathon is a combination challenge and committment. Participants agree to blog every day -- every day! -- during the month of May and to encourage other participants to do the same. The idea is to get into the habit of blogging, but if last year's blogathon was any example, the benefits go far beyond that. I discovered some wonderful new blogs and forged relationships with other bloggers. I was inspired by their writing and they, occassionally, were inspired by me.

So I'm getting back up on the horse. Busy schedule or not, I'll be blogging 'bout boys every single day in the month of May.


  1. Jennifer! Glad to see you signed up for the blogathon again...I'll be right there with you. :)

  2. Interesting. May will be a busy school month. I seem to blog more during busy school months, though they are often more boring for the general public I guess as they are about what the boys did and we did for their special lessons. (it's mythology and astronomy and sketching for May). Maybe I'll participate in the blogathon

  3. Oh even though my blog is totally personal thing and not famous at all I am so gonna do this! I always want to blog more but never really commit to it I just keep mentally writing blogs in my head in the middle of the night but what a great challenge! Thanks for sharing! Starts tomorrow?!? EEEeeekkkk! I gotta get thinking :)

  4. Great! I look forward to reading your posts for an entire month!

  5. I would love to do this...if I didn't have a manuscript to finish!

    You have a new picture -- very cool!

    I'll be tuning in this month -- best of luck!
