1- The widget needs to reappear next year!
right or wrong, I generally spent less than 10 seconds on a blog where the latest
post was a letter from several days ago. I know that not everyone can keep up.
That life can get in the way. But there were so many people that it felt unjust
to devote time to those who were failing the challenge instead of giving
attention to those who were keeping up and earning it. So it would be great if
the widget also booted those out who had dropped out, or at least moved them to
the end of the click list.
I’m not sure that such a thing is possible. Probably not. I’m not the matrix.
2- I loved playing along and getting to know other people. I
have a new folder in my browser bookmarks filled with the interesting blogs
that I found and plan to visit again.
3- LIKE BUTTON. I wish more blogs had them. I might not sign
in to every page to comment, but if there was a button/ icon that could be
clicked, I think that would be nice. I know I personally enjoy if someone stops
by my page and clicks the “Liked” option.
Is there a universal way to get that on blogs? Or something
similar to it? I feel that it’s polite to click something so the writer knows
that I was there, that I acknowledge the work, and that I found it pleasing-
but in a way that only requires one quick click. Perhaps I spend too much time
on Facebook and Twitter with the Like and Favorite options.
4- I don’t want it to end! I love having inspiration that is
shared with others. Small easy goals and deadlines give me motivation.
5- I was impressed by the number of participants that used
the word xenophobe for the letter x in the challenge. I figured that there
would be a lot of people talking about their x-rays or xylophones from
childhood, or turning into chemists to educate about xenon, or perhaps even
posting Xerox’s of butt cheeks.
