Better late than never, right?
I really enjoyed my first IComLeavWe. It required a certain time commitment, but not much more than I would spend on blogs in a normal day. I especially appreciated that it gave me the motivation to seek out more blogs. I found many of the initial blogs in my blogroll through Mel's Creme de la Creme list. So this was just another great tool to help me explore the ALI community online. I found new blogs to follow and read a lot of really awesome posts. Seriously, some people here have missed their calling as writers!
For my blog, I really appreciated the increased traffic. I like it when my posts can be treated more as a dialog than a monologue sometimes. Although I still monologue a good bit of the time. I felt it was important to update my blog daily for ICLW to make it easier for people to comment. That worked out fine since I had plenty to talk about. I know I won't keep that pace consistently; I certainly didn't this weekend. But events have a way of ebbing and flowing and I'll just roll with the tide. I haven't decided if I'm going to participate in February ICLW. That's another great thing about the project - I love that it is completed in 12 bite sized portions. A very workable commitment!
So thank you to all my visitors this past week. If you've decided to hang around and keep reading, excellent :-) If you think you'll stop by at the next ICLW, great! I just enjoy encouraging the conversation...
So, do any of you have any observations post-ICLW? Think you'll participate in the future? Did you pressure yourself to post more frequently?
