Project: Underblog is officially one year old and oh, what a year it has been, dear friends!
I don’t like to talk numbers and stats, but I want you to think about something: Did you know that in just 12 short months Project: Underblog has celebrated nearly 70 bloggers!? 70 Bloggers! We’ve had the honor of helping nearly 70 bloggers get their stories and voices out there. We’ve met some amazing people, read some of the best writing I’ve ever seen, and connected with hundreds of others through social media and comments. Some of the bloggers we’ve featured through submissions were just starting out – not really sure what blogging was about. Some were fairly well established with a desire to connect with others blogging about the same topics. And some were very content to fly just below the radar because they wanted writing to be the focus of it all.
Let me just say it’s been magical! Every tweet, every comment, every reader has helped us stick close to our missions of celebrating amazing writing no matter the stats and numbers. We are proud to be small and mighty!
I know the effort that goes on behind the scenes to make all this happen, but I couldn’t do it if it were not for my contributors. These ladies not only share their writing each month, but also work tirelessly to promote and celebrate each submission that comes in. And, they do all of it without compensation. They believe in the cause and do everything they can to help make it a success! Thank you, Jana, Aimee, Amy, Jennifer, Amber, Heidi, and Cristie! You ladies keep me going!
So, now that we’ve gotten all the mushy emotional stuff out of the way, let’s talk #31days31voices
The submissions? Incredible! The stories? Some of the most touching things I’ve ever read. Starting tomorrow we will publish one new story each day for the entire month! By the end of the month we can say with pride that we’ve officially celebrated 100 bloggers on our site! Pretty awesome, yes!?
