The first month of the ME Blogger campaign is off and running…and almost over already! I am pleased to announce that we now have 18 OFFICIAL ME Bloggers! That’s almost 20% of our goal for 2009!
Many of the NEW ME Bloggers have announced their intentions to join and are still in the process of getting their web logs up and running… I will continue to post new members additions as they make themselves aware to me/us here:
In addition, I will update the list via a post toward the end of each month. Please join me in welcoming all the official Me Bloggers today! Visit them and say hello!

I am also encouraging all the ME Bloggers to “get out” and visit the other ME Bloggers as time permits and to get involved in the conversations on others site. Why not start this week…today?

To find out why it is VERY important for us to continue to link to each other, please read this article that I wrote back in April of 2007. I am going to be re-writing this as a ME Blogger article in the near future, but it will give you some idea as to the mechanics of HOW we become heard in the Internet World…
I’ve also decided to add a “Friends of the ME Bloggers” part of our campaign… There are so many GREAT bloggers that are affiliated with us in some way and want to be a part of this, but don’t “fit the mold”… More on this in the future!
So…please let me know what you think (good or bad!) about this or anything that we talk about here!
