All Wordy and Junk: A brand new multi-author blog
« on: August 16, 2009, 10:47:08 PM »
Let's face it, anyone that has ever tried to maintain a blog all by themselves knows, blogging is tough. Having to come up with something to write about on a regular basis isn't the easiest task. Not to mention all the other things that go along with blogging, such as promoting it and stuff. This is why so many writers just give up and abandon their blogs.

All Wordy and Junk was an idea conceived on Friendfeed. A group decided to band together to make a single multi-author blog. Figuring that the more writers you have, the less pressure you have to come up with something to write, lets the authors relax and take their time, putting forth their best work by only writing when they feel compelled to do so. With up to 100 authors (that is the max it will have) there will always be someone writing something to keep it fresh and alive.

'All Wordy And Junk' is the home for some bloggers who aren't that great at keeping up a blog on their own. We figured we'd band together and rely on everyone else to keep the content flowing when we had writer's block. Other than that, there is no theme here. Posts and topics will be random, because that's the way we like it.


I have had conversations and discussions with  lot of the authors of this blog on Friendfeed and they are an interesting bunch with a lot to share. I have a feeling this may become one of my favorite blogs to read.



Edit: added link to Friendfeed discussion where the idea was born.

Seems like a pretty brilliant idea to me. Magazines have always had multiple writers and editors. And it worked for them.

Thanks for sharing! :)
