We had a great turnout for our last Blogging challenge. During november we had about 20 - 25 people participate. I'm still counting the total number of posts and doing some reporting on them but roughly we should have about 600 new posts that were created during this challenge. I think the reality is that we less than 400. I think that is still pretty huge for something that started between Cliff and I and was supposed to just be a "thing to do." I never thought it would become what it has.
To all of you that joined the December challenge, Welcome! I can't wait to read your blogs and get to know you better.
I'm very excited to be kicking off the 2nd challenge. December will be tougher than November I think because of the holidays. But it should warm everyone up for January's challenge. That should be very exciting. I'm seeking sponsors and volunteers to help running that next time. If you're interested, let me know. I need sponsors, curators, and of course bloggers that want to participate.
Imagine, if we do the next 12 moths, that means you have an opportunity to blog every day during 2013. That is really powerful. It will set your blog apart from everyone else's.
In other notes...
On a more personal note, today was the official due date for Claire to arrive. Helen's feeling just fine, but no signs of Claire yet. It is not uncommon for the first child to be a little bit late, so we're now on high-alert baby watch. We can't wait.
Helen joined my blogging class, and her goal for blogging is to write to Claire as she grows up. She's going to write on Claire's website under the Parent's Journey topic. I might write over there once in a while as well. We debated on the name "Parent's Journey" vs "Letters to Claire" and ultimately we went with Parent's Journey.
Oh yeah and I made these for the Holidays...
