The 2011 WordCount Blogathon is On!

TwitterFacebookLinkedInRedditKindle ItFlipboardStumbleUponEmailPrintFriendlyShare

2011 WordCount BlogathonIt’s May, which not only means that Spring has arrived in Michigan, but also that I’m once again participating in the Annual WordCount Blogathon. It’s always a blast, because I get to connect with other bloggers, learn new stuff, and brainstorm on various tips and tricks of the blogosphere.

I’m also once again offering one of my online WriteBlogLearn classes to some lucky blogger who posts every day for the month of May (that’s the Blogathon goal). So, even better that I’ll have the opportunity to work with someone beyond the Blogathon, too.

I love promoting other bloggers, so here’s a list of everyone participating in this year’s Blogathon. Please check them out. It’s a hoot that we have Sookie Stackhouse and Betty Draper as bloggers, and Walter Johnson! That’s my dad’s name! He’s been gone for many years, so I’ll take this as a good omen on my upcoming blogging ventures.

And of course, a big shout-out to Michelle Rafter for organizing, sponsoring, and just generally being an awesome blogger wrangler. I know this is a ton of work for her, and we all really appreciate it!
