Coming in here late with my weekly forum of Tuesdays Topics. I invite you to discuss, comment and share on any of the topics I discuss on Tuesdays. The only thing I ask is to be respectful of all that come here.
Today I am taking the time out to discuss a fantastic opportunity I had this weekend and one that will return in June. It was dubbed Blogathon2.
Honestly, I had no clue as to what that really meant but I was intrigued by the idea of getting my to do blogging list done and maybe learn something along the way. The incentive to strive for the full 72 hours allotted for this event was prizes. Of course no one really had to do the whole 72 nor was it expected.
After nearly 30 hours of working on my blog, networking and fantastic Twitter party fun, I learned a thing or two. First of all, you cannot get a to do list done if you are social networking too much. However, I really did not mind because I met some really great people and I hope to stay in contact with the majority of them.
I did manage to create a new fan page which can be found HERE. Please drop by and like the page. I would be very grateful.
I did learn about tweet grids and how to use them. I also won an e-book at one of the parties. I found out about a program called sumopaint.com and got some great information on blogger planners.
There were 13 mini-challenges that were available to do for additional entries. I wish I could say I got to all of them but I simply didn't. In any case, all of them were different and informative.
As an outreach from this event, I created the Facebook Group #Goodreads Rocks. This group was created for those of us who were discussing our love of books, reading and the site Goodreads. If you would like to join, you can do that HERE.
What I took away from Blogathon2 will certainly stick with me for awhile and I do look forward to the next one scheduled for June. I encourage you to sign up for it as soon as that time becomes available. It is worth the time and effort. You just might learn something.
As there were several newbies involved with Blogathon2, they wanted to know about some linky parties and other imemes/info. I am including ones (below) that I am involved and/or know about but if you know of other good ones, let me know in comments with the links and I will pass that information along. Note: I am posting by day for your ease of access.
