Are you an old book blogger? Do you wish you could discover other bloggers who read the same books you do? Read-a-thon is for you!
If you an old blogger or a new blogger and you want to have fun with reading and fun with blogging, then I invite you to sign up for Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-thon.
I became a book blogger by accident. I took a class online, a 23 Things class, a class where you learn about all the cool tools of Web 2.0. Part of the class was creating a blog. I thought I'd create a blog for the class and that would be it.
An unexpected 663 posts later, here I still am. Reading. Writing about reading. And reading some more.
One of the things that hooked me on blogging was the readathon. Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-thon was the first book blogging event I participated in, way back in June of 2008. I did every challenge. Wow. I visited other people's blogs. Wow. Other people visited my blog. Wow. And left comments. Wow. Some people became followers. Wow.
All of a sudden, I realized there was this Whole Big World of Readers out there. I met some of my favorite bloggers, bloggers I still visit every week, during Read-a-thon.
So, I encourage you to join in, too. The read-a-thon will be Saturday, October 13. I hope I'll see you there!
