Thankful Thursday: Ending of Blogathon

Today is the day...the blogathon ends...I'm thankful for the experience of competing in yet another blogathon. I skipped a beat- not posting on May 18th, but that is fine...although I can't say I officially completed the blogathon--- I'm glad that I didn't stop there and give up. My last few days of the blogathon were my best!

I'm thankful to my two guest post bloggers- Jenny and Kusum. They made my blogathon just a bit easier. 


Although this is not my first blogathon, I think I learned the most during it. I am thankful for all I am coming away with. Here are just a few things-


1. The need to be focused and prepared with posting blog updates


2. The desire to want to post nice pictures with each post-- better still to TAKE those said pictures!


3. The need to be consistent


4. Make good use of keywords and use links generously

A hearty congratulations to all those who faithfully blogged for the 31 days without missing a beat!!!!! GOOD JOB!!!!! Keep on spinning out those blog posts for all to read.

  2. Yey! You did it well. I never read anybody's personal blogs. But, I read yours because I like the way you put across the thoughts with minimum possible words which have maximum impact!

  6. Congratulations on your achievement. You are not a first timer in Blogathon and you're becoming a pro slowly. :)

    I remember you encouraged me to do it last year. :) And it was fun. This year I am on the move... running like a headless chicken. :P

    I salute ur enthusiasm for life!!!!!

    When I came in here I was so disappointed when I realised I missed the entire Blogathon:-(. I was not busy, just sick & listless[the family too]....not in the mood for blogging. If I had known I'd have been here....ur posts really cheer me up.
    A request please....please let me know when u do ur next blogathon. I'd love to be a part of it.

    1. Oh Nancy I'm sorry to hear that you were sick!!! I do hope you are feeling better. Please keep me updated on how you are doing.
      As for the blogathon- it is put on my Michelle Rafter from Wordcount- she does it every May. This is my third year participating.

      I know there are other blogathons online- but I've never been involved with any of them. I'll definitely keep you updated when the time for the next one comes along.

  8. This is awesome. Congratulations! I wish I had the dedication to participate in a blogathon. I let real life take over and abandoned my blog again. Hopefully this time I'm back for good!
