    It’s been great to help Ron Doyle on his blog. I think the color scheme is going to work. What I want to know is: what happens when the blogathon ends? Does he go back to his original blog design? Will he stick with the composite devised with the help of all these writers? Or, does he have something else entirely in mind? The guy’s a genius when it comes to creativity–and marketing. I actually want to know what he’ll do!

    Michelle, I’m so flattered to be included in this round-up — thank you!

    I’m really finding the discipline of the blogathon valuable. I find that I walk around thinking, “Ok, creative people, ideas, habits, culture” (the topics I cover)…and I keep that activated as a filter as I go through my day. It’s really helping me mine my daily life for subject matter in a more consistent way.

    It’s funny that you feel like a hostess at a dinner party — isn’t that the role of a blogger, in so many ways??

    Thanks again…

    Thanks for the mention, Michelle!

    Like Amanda, the blogathon is helping me develop discipline, something I really needed! And I’ve been even more aware of idioms, that’s for sure.

    I’ve enjoyed reading the Blogathon blogs – learning something new every day! Thanks for hosting the party!

    Thanks for the plug, Michelle! Just seeing it now as I’m catching up on my reading after spending Friday and most of weekend getting my son’s fracture in a cast. ;). Thank goodness for WordPress, publishing ahead feature.

    Have really been enjoying the blogathon. Fun to check out all these new blogs and I agree with Joanne that it really helps with the discipline.

    As for my survey, is interesting to find that at one point or another the majority of us have broken the law. I’ll be following up on that for sure.
