One of the great things about Kate contacting me was that I was pointed to her blog, where I discovered that she's working on a digital portfolio project similar to something I'm doing. This is the beauty of blogging--we find people with whom we can connect, both personally and professionally. I love that.
Something else--Reader Nancy Riffer emailed me to say that by issuing yesterday's blogging challenge, I encouraged her to finally start her own blog to join in the challenge. Another powerful impact.
If 31 Days to a Better Blog is meant to help me build community, I'd say we're off to a good start.
UPDATE--Cammy Bean and Laura Whitehead have joined in on the challenge--be sure to read Laura's first post on how as a nonprofit website designer she sees these exercises as being really valuable. Also, I've started a list of bloggers participating at the top of my right sidebar. I'll add Nancy's name as soon as I get her blog URL. Let me know if you're ready for me to add your name to the list!
