A little while ago, I encouraged you to join me in blogging every day for March. I was astounded by the take up, and am happy to report that there is a total of 42 people that will be trying to blog every single day in the upcoming month. I’m really looking forward to seeing what everyone produces and creates in that time.
Here are some final points to help guide you through the month.
1) Twitter Hashtag
If you’re using Twitter this month you can promote your blog posts using the Hashtag #b03. A hat tip to Mr Benjamin Paton, who suggested that in the original post. Benjamin will be posting to his Tumblr for March.
Feel free to follow along on the hashtag and see what everyone is creating.
2) RSS/Public Google Reader
I was wondering how on earth we could create a place where everyone could simply go to check out all the posts that people are writing, but hadn’t found the time to investigate it at all. Thankfully, Marty Kemka did! He commented on the original post with this link, which bundles all the RSS feeds together in a public place. Brilliant! Thanks Marty!
If you haven’t given me the url of your blog, then you’ll need to send it to Marty or myself to get on this page. There are few others, like Ross Hill, who are going to be emailing once daily. There may also be a few Vloggers posting to YouTube daily, so I’m not sure how we’ll surface that content, but let me know anyways where you’ll be creating stuff.
3) Set up a habit calendar
Ok, so this is a bit of advice rather than a rule but I’d really encourage you to set up a habit calendar. You can read my post from earlier in the year about how to do that here. It really got me going and is something I highly advise for those of you starting out.
This challenge will be easy in the first few days…but it’s after that point that it gets harder. Tweet a picture of your habit calendar to the hashtag #b03 to show it off and keep yourself honest. Here’s my habit calendar for March, ready to go.
And that’s it! Good luck for the month! It’s going to be a lot of fun and I can’t wait to see what we create from this.
