  • Xanga Blogathon next week!

    Starting next week on Monday, March 21st, we’re having a week-long blogathon on Xanga. If you want to participate, it’s easy: just blog every day from Monday to Friday!

    Blogging is a habit… I was reminded of this recently by a story about Jerry Seinfeld:

    [Jerry] revealed a unique calendar system he uses … Here’s how it works.

    He told me to get a big wall calendar that has a whole year on one page and hang it on a prominent wall. The next step was to get a big red magic marker. He said for each day that I do my task of writing, I get to put a big red X over that day.

    “After a few days you’ll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You’ll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain.”

    “Don’t break the chain,” he said again for emphasis.

    I always feel better when I’m blogging regularly, but sometimes I fall out of the habit. So I thought it might be fun to kickstart things together!

    I’ll be blogging Monday – Friday next week on my blog, at Come join me! So far, I’ve only bounced the full idea by my wife (justbee) and fellow XangaTeam member (marc) and they’re both up for participating. I’ll be posting a roundup of all the participants, and we’ll do some neat things to drive traffic to participants.

    If you’re up for it, please comment below!
