BLOGATHON! May Project!
Precious people I adore.
The month of May begins today, and with it a little self-set project I like to call BLOGATHON.
So, lots of people are always telling me I should blog more. And by “lots of people” I mean I think someone told me that once, and I tell myself that all the time.
Not for nothing, I now work in social media to make a living, and this here blog is sort of my digital calling card. This is where I direct people to see what I do (more specifically, I direct them here). So this blog should be a dynamic, thriving community in order to demonstrate to potential clients that I know what I’m talking about with all this new media stuff. Unfortunately, I don’t blog frequently enough. That’s on me.
So here’s what I promise for May: One Blog Every Single Damn Day.
And for the first two weeks or so I’ll be traveling, so you can bet there will even be very exciting stuff going on! We’re also not out of the woods yet on this whole cleanse thing. And Miles will inevitably keeping doing funny, weird stuff. The content is readily available.
But there’s a catch.
I track this blog (and the others I manage) using several kinds of analytics. I know that when I post a blog, usually around 300 people will read it on that first day. BUT, even so, I hardly ever get comments here. They mostly stay on Facebook. So what it looks like to clients is that I’m singing into the virtual void. I promise to blog every day this month, but in order to keep me motivated, I’m going to need some encouragement.
I’m setting a goal of at least three comments on every post.
It’s not so many! Let me know what you think, tell me off, share a story, comment on something somebody else said! Comments create community, and community engagement is what makes great bloggers. Who can charge other people for their services.
But of course there’s something in it for you.
Every time you comment during BLOGATHON (unless of course you do it anonymously), you’ll be entered to win a gift collection at the end of May. Your name can be entered as many as 31 times (maximum of 1 per day).
And remember, this only applies to comments left ON THE BLOG ITSELF, not Twitter or FB. The gift collection will contain 4 fantabulous prizes; I will reveal one each Friday between now and the end of the month. And on Friday, June 1st, I’ll pull a random name and reveal the winner of the whole kaboodle. That person will feel totally cool. And they’ll get a basket of goodies in the mail.
So you see: we all win! I’ll write more, and you’ll get those comments going.
BLOGATHON begins NOW! Everyone to your posts! (double entendre)
And in case I didn’t make it clear at the beginning… I love you. I always have. And from the bottom of my heart, thanks for your help.
