One of my goals from Thanksgiving to Christmas was to run one last group writing project. I thought about a few ideas, but decided to look back in time and ask the question, “What did you learn this year?”
I’m not the type to overly reflect on the past but given how much I’ve learned and how much experience I’ve gained over the past year, it strikes me as the kind of thing that many of you would be interested in. Not just what I’ve learned and my experience but everyone’s newfound insight and ideas. And of course, your own.
When you sit back and really examine what you’ve learned I know a ton of super interesting things will come out.
So, here are the details:
- Starting Monday, December 18th write at least one post answering the question, “What did you learn this year?”
- You’ve got until Sunday, December 24th when the group writing project ends.
- Post a link to Instigator Blog from your post(s). (And feel free to use the image in this post.)
- Tag your post(s) (for Technorati if you do so), “what I learned”.
- Email me to let me know about your post (easiest way for me to find out about it.)
- I’ll provide at least 2 links back to your post and encourage everyone to check out your blogs!
To add a little gift-giving fun to this project, I’m also going to randomly give away a few prizes:
- Phil Gerbyshak’s book 10 Ways to Make It Great! (two signed copies!)
- The Monk and the Riddle: The Art of Creating a Life While Making a Living by Randy Komisar (recommended by Austin Hill)
- What No One Ever Tells You About Blogging and Podcasting by Ted Demopoulos
- Marketing Outrageously by Jon Spoelstra (recommended by Jim Kukral)
- (More prizes may be forthcoming!)
(Note: Even if you donated a prize or recommended one, please contribute to the group writing project anyway. If you’re picked to win something, I’ll make sure I don’t give you what you donated!)
Obviously you won’t get these prizes before Christmas but I hope they’ll be a nice little boost come 2007!
Let me thank everyone in advance who participates and enjoys this group writing project. I can’t wait to learn about what you’ve learned in 2006.
Please help me spread the word about this group writing project. I’d love to get 50 submissions, but that’s going to take some work!
