In light of my upcoming High Summer Read-a-Thon (July 16 - 22), I was doing some thinking on the dates and the hosting aspect of the read-a-thons. I have themed each read-a-thon, as you know, seasonally (based on the seasons as they are in the U.S., with no intentional discrimination against my participants on the other side of the globe...honest) so I host one in January, April, July, and October. I'm beginning to think that it would be easier on me to schedule them around the same week in their respective months, each year. I've already settled on permanent names for them. The Winter read-a-thon is A Winter's Respite, Spring will be known from now on as Spring into Horror, Summer has been the High Summer Read-a-Thon for two summers now, and this Fall, in October, I've decided to condense down the name of the Fall read-a-thon to the hashtag we used for Twitter last year so it will be known from now on as the FrightFall Read-a-Thon. I'm also considering starting a dedicated blog from which I could host all four of the read-a-thons. Not only would it make it easier on me (I think), but I think it would be easier for people to follow/subscribe and get the information all in one place. The scheduled dates for each read-a-thon would be up in the sidebar well in advance for people to plan for them...kind of like Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon.
So, what do I need from you? There is a handy little poll at the top of the post section. If you could fill that out for me, I would really appreciate your input. Feel free to leave a comment with opinions as well, if you would like.
