You may notice on the right hand side of your screen, if you click through a subscription link to the Suddenly Frugal blog site, a new image. It’s for the Wordcount Blogathon 2011. I’ve added a similar “badge” to this post (right)so you’ll know what to look for.

Wordcount Blogathon 2011 (which you can find on Twitter with the hashtag #blog2011) is an annual event that my writer friend Michelle Rafter created four years ago. Its mission? To inspire participating bloggers to post every day of the week for the entire month of May.

For newbie bloggers the Wordcount Blogathon helps to establish the discipline of blogging regularly. For established blogger like myself, this Blogathon helps to introduce your blog to new readers and, hopefully, drive traffic to your site.

Later today I’ll be posting the blogroll of the 100+ participating blogs in the Wordcount Blogathon 2011. Perhaps you’ll find another blog that interests you and to which you’d like to subscribe? Maybe I will, too? Bottom line: get ready ready for a blog post a day for the next 31 days. Welcome, May!

    Yup, I’m with you. Thankfully, I had already written something for this morning, or I’d already be behind. One of my monthly goals is to write more, so I really can’t pass this up.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for lighting the fire under me! I’ve been meaning to start a new book recommendation blog, but somehow never got around to it – until your challenge.

    So here I go on the WordCount Blogathon at http://booksyalove.blogspot.com

    Happy May, and let’s get blogging!

    I was wondering if there were other rival blog post a month things out there. So I did a search on the NaBloPoMo thing in the previous comment – seems that there is – I guess you could join both and get more work out of each blog!!

    I was debating whether to join NaBloPoMo this month. Maybe Wordcount Blogathon would be better. Think. Think. Think.
