or not – RandomBlog2011 Challenge Update

RandomBlog2011 Challenge, PostADay2011, PostAWeek2011, Twitter, TweetThis is just a quick update to let everyone know I’m still working on the new page for RandomBlog2011 Challenge. There is nothing bugging me today!

Instead of publishing full posts every day for the RandomBlog2011 Challenge, updates will go out as Tweets on Twitter. I will still publish updates in some of my daily posts but if it’s something quick I will instead send out a Tweet linking to the new information.

This is the best way to keep everyone informed on updates. So if you want the latest updates, you might want to follow me on TwitterFollow me on Twitter .

If anyone doesn’t have a Twitter account you can sign up here.

One of the things changing is a new way for you to let other bloggers know what new blogs you’ve visited. You can do this by using the hashtag symbol “#” and randomblog2011. If you’re using the WordPress Publicize feature you can retweet your own posts using the hashtag symbol.

  • #randomblog2011

This is similar to The Daily Post using #postaday2011 and #postaweek2011.

Here is some information from Twitter on using hashtags.

Hashtags: helping you find interesting Tweets

  • People use the hashtag symbol # before relevant keywords in their Tweet to categorize those Tweets to show more easily in Twitter Search.
  • Clicking on a hashtagged word in any message shows you all other Tweets in that category.
  • Hashtags can occur anywhere in the Tweet.
  • Hashtagged words that become very popular are often Trending Topics.

Here is an example of a Tweet using the hashtag symbol.

I think that about covers it for now.

There is nothing bugging me today!
