Blogapalooza 2008

blogapaloozaThe end of the year and a start of a new one often brings about times of reflection.

And that’s exactly what Robert Hruzek over at Middle Zone Musings is asking us to do through his Blogapalooza.


Here are the details from Robert:

Now, looking back at your archives, you’ll choose one post from every month you’ve been blogging in the year 2008.

So how do you choose? Well, the question you have to ask yourself is, what was the most amazing, moving, profound, surprising, insane, whacky, or whatever thing you learned in the month of March? How about July? Anything in October?

Use any criteria you like – your most commented, your most profound, your cat’s favorite – hey, whatever, y’all; it’s up to you!

So How Do You Participate?
It’s really pretty simple. Here’s what you do:
1. Search your archives and pick one post from each month you’ve been blogging in 2008
2. Create a list of the links to those posts*, including a brief description of each one. VERY IMPORTANT: Please use MS Word (preferred) or Rich Text formats ONLY!
3. E-mail the list to me (rhruzek at sbcglobal dot net) as soon as possible! If you like, also include a blurb about yourself and/or your blog, and a flattering photo of yourself (in .jpg format, please).
4. REQUEST (NOT REQUIRED): Please publicize this project as much as possible – blogs, Twitter, Facebook or whatever social media you use. The more that participate, the bigger and better it’ll be!

(*NOTE: Please be sure to validate your links, y’all!)

Now, here’s the great part: once I receive your list, I will post it as a guest post! Yup, you read it right, friends! Your link lists will appear right here at the Zone! Wow, how great is that?

They will start appearing every day, starting January 5 and continuing through Sunday, January 25!


I’ve sent Robert my list already and really enjoyed going back through the past year to see where I’ve been. Do a reflecting and join in the fun. I’d love to see where you’ve been too!



  1. It occurs to me that I probably need to write more stuff down if I want to remember where I’ve been. I’m thinking, yes, this may just be the year of the journal.
