Ideas of March

I love blogs. A year ago today, I tried to start a sort of blogging revival. To my great surprise and delight, it kinda worked. For a while, I could find really interesting stuff to read every day by just browsing through my planet or #ideasofmarch on Twitter. It was great.

As time passed, commitment waned. When I noticed it was almost that time of year again, I decided this was a tradition worth keeping, so here I am. I'm using this opportunity to renew my commitment to blog more, and hopefully this year's Ideas of March can provide an opportunity to let everyone know blogs are still alive and well. And appreciated.

If you'd like to participate, here's how:

  • Write a post called Ideas of March.
  • Write about why you like blogs.
  • If you don't already blog regularly, pledge to blog more the rest of the month.
  • Share your thoughts on Twitter with the #ideasofmarch hashtag.

I hope you'll join us, and if you do, please leave a comment. (Comments are great, too!)

Chris Cornutt is maintaining a list of this year's Ideas of March posts.

That's what I get for not reading the style guide. Let's try this again.

Delighted to once again be a part of this, it was just the kick up the proverbial we needed. We've conjured up a little something that suggests a 'Creator's Code' might be a better idea than a 'Curator's Code'. Read it here.
