National Blogging Day

I’ve been blogging a while now (did a year’s worth of it in college before launching this iteration of back in October of last year) and I love it. Pure and simple.

I don’t claim to be any good at it, but I love it all the same, and that passion has spawned several other blogs since.

What I’m thinking, seen as Ireland has developed quite a nice blogging drive, quite evident since I’ve taken it up, and moreso through some of the ‘leaders’ for want of a better word, those blog evangelists if you will, is that we have a National Blogging Day. August 1st, just to throw it out there.

And on this day, everyone – everyone – writes a piece reflecting on their previous year’s blogging – how they’ve developed themselves, made articles, favourite snippets from the year, what they enjoy about blogging etc.
Nice way to chronicle the changing face of the Irish blogging community, would you think?

    I very much like this idea. Why not have a follow-up party that weekend? Another big meetup?

    Now you’re talking… Could make it an annual blog party… 🙂

    Wouldn’t you know there’d be an international day somewhere….! Missed that one. All the same, nothing like a taking an Irish turn on events!
