I’ve commented on at least fifteen different blogs about how I was not going to participate in this blogfest. I whined about the time commitment, but I signed-up anyway.
I submitted to peer pressure.
To prepare, I’ve updated my blogger profile in the sidebar to include my genre and blogging topics for potential followers. This should reduce the time it takes new visitors to determine what my blog has to offer other than the “themed” blogfest posts.
I’ve added a welcome note to the top of the page.
I’ve switched to popup comments. Embedded comments are great for feeds and readers who come here via those places to comment, but not as convenient for first time visitors.
As always I do NOT have word verification turned on (hint, hint).
Now, is evil too strong a word? The closer we get to April 1st, I have to say no. Sadly, I now think there is no way to visit every person on the list. And darnit I really want to.
Ok, let’s say I visited on all the blogging days for the entire challenge. At the time I wrote this, I would have to visit 23 blogs a day. That does not include my standby blogs who are not participating that I don’t want to ignore. That’s overwhelming and not doable.
So, I’ve decided to pull a number from a hat everyday to decide what blogfest blogger to start with and then visit the next 10 to 15 blogs. This gives all the participants equally chance to be visited by me. I will, of course, also visit anyone who visits here.
Any other recommendations? Anyone else go to the dark side?
