I’m wondering how many of you are part of group blogs? I’m talking about blogs where there are multiple bloggers.
I blog daily here on Straight From Hel. I also blog occasionally on a group blog, The Blood-Red Pencil. I think I’m posting there today. I say, think, because I’m never sure when my posts will show up. I’m not in charge of scheduling. Since I never know, it’s difficult to let readers of Straight From Hel know to pop over. If I’m there today, it’ll be to make a book recommendation for Punish the Deed by Diane Fanning.
And this leads me to my questions for those of you who participate in group blogs:
What has been your experience? How are the posts planned? Is there a set schedule for the participants?
I’ve seen blogs where there are, for example, seven participants, one for each day of the week. The bloggers have a set day on which they post. Others have 14 or 15 bloggers, so each posts only twice a month, like Women in Crime Ink. I’ve seen blogs with multiple bloggers, but there doesn’t seem to be a set schedule, such as The Blood-Red Pencil.
Some people participate in multiple blogs, some their own, some with others. Jean Henry Mead seems to be part of seven different blogs. Gracious! I can barely keep up with this one and an occasional post on TBRP.
What about you? If you’re part of a multi-person blog, how does it work? If you blog on your own, how often do your blog and do you ever wish you had cohorts?
By the way: Happy Turkeyday People! (This is the day we celebrate turkeys by eating ham, right?)
