or not – It’s Not Over Yet – RandomBlog2011 Challenge

February 20, 2011 11 comments

RandomBlog2011, challenge, PostADay2011, PostAWeek2011As the RandomBlog2011 Challenge Week of February 14 – 20, 2011 comes to a close I would like to say that it’s not over yet. There is nothing bugging me today! 🙂

Well, there might be a few annoying things today but I’m not going to let them get in the way. Everyone who has taken part in the challenge has had such a great time meeting up with fellow bloggers that it would be a shame to have it end today.

So as the creator of the challenge and from early poll results, I’ve decided that my RandomBlog2011 Challenge will continue for as long as I have the support of my fellow bloggers in this wonderful online community that’s been created with the WordPress Challenge.

There will be some changes made to it because we can’t continue at this pace. At least I can’t if I want to do anything else like maybe some laundry and shopping.

I just wanted to get the word out to all the readers of my blog that the RandomBlog2011 Challenge will continue so this is all you’re getting now.

Continue to tag your posts with RandomBlog2011 and stay tuned for further details.

Thank you to everyone who has taken part in the challenge this past week and for the wonderful words of support and encouragement you have all offered.

I’m still on that roller coaster ride and it is thrilling!

There is nothing bugging me today!

or not – RandomBlog2011 Challenge Day 7

February 20, 2011 29 comments

RandomBlog2011 Challenge, postaday2011, postaweek2011This is Day 7 of the RandomBlog2011 Challenge and from all appearances it’s been a huge success.  More than I could have imagined. There is nothing bugging me today!

Since many of you have expressed an interest that the Challenge continue in some format I’m holding off on doing a final wrap up report.

Yesterday I set up a poll and I would appreciate it if you could take the time to answer it. It’s a simple yes or no answer I’m asking for.

For those who say yes, if you have any suggestions please leave me a comment.

Since this is Day 7 I would like to say a special thanks to Seashell for her suggestion.

We could even help drive a little more traffic to the new bloggers by everyone adding a little footnote in their posts about the new bloggers they’ve visited.

Acknowledging the blogs we visited in our daily posts really did help drive traffic and make even more connections in our online community. Many of you wrote introductions to the new bloggers which I’m sure they appreciated.

The other day I was asked how I find new blogs to visit. There is no special trick I have, I tag surf and something about the post title catches my attention and I visit the blog. Most of the times I’m lucky and if I’m not then I’m gone in seconds. There are still people posting their pledges who have just joined the WordPress PostADay2011 and PostAWeek2011 Challenge.

On my list today is Amy – Other Awesome Things and when I arrived at her blog her hit counter looked like this. Talk about finding a new blog!

blog, stats,

Let’s see a few more hits on it.

Also on my list today is Summerfield84 who has not only just joined the WordPress Challenge but has also decided to write in English instead of his native language of Japanese. A new blog has been set up in English and is easily accessed through the Gravatar. Now here is someone who read my blog post PostADay2011 – Bloggers With No Links and knows how important it is to be all linked up.

Blogs I’ve Visited

Simone Benedict – Simone Benedict’s Blog

Alisa N – MOM, Be Encouraged!

Stein Ink – Stein Ink Thinks

Amy – Other Awesome Things

summerfield84 – Summerfield84’s English Blog

pranjalkoranne – TheCreativeRealms

There is nothing bugging me today!

Quote for today

Smiling is infectious,
You can catch it like the flu.
Someone smiled at me today,
And I started smiling too.
