Believe it or not, I haven't forgotten about 52 Weeks of Blog Community. I know it may seem like. But, truth is, things are just really hectic right now. So, I keep postponing the creation of new tasks and the rounding up of old ones. And, don't we all know that procrastination just makes things more difficult. Argh.
So, here we are again. On task #31. Entering Round #8. Woohoo.
Yes, starting from today's task, we're having a new set of prizes for Party #8. So, watch out for the post on that. Not to mention, our virtual party posts. I now owe you parties #6 & #7. We'll make it happen! 🙂
Anyway, for Task #31, the mission is simple: Email a blogger that you've never talked to before. It can be someone totally new that you've just accidentally stumbled upon during blog hopping. Or, it can be someone who writes a blog that you've been reading for a while, but you've never left a comment or a message.
I try to do this exercise on a regular basis. It really helps to expand my network of contacts and friends. If I had more time, I'll definitely do it more often. As it stands, I try to write to a new blogger that I've never been contact with before at least once a week.
If you do this task this week, please let us know by commenting in this post. If you want to share the URL of the blogger you've written to, that'll be cool. But, if you just want to tell us, "Yes, I've emailed a new blogger today." - then that's cool too.
I wish you all well in meeting new bloggers!
Anyway, thanks again to all the participants from 52WoC #30: Blog Action Day. Here's our round-up -
