The Wrap Up
The very first Blog Action Day was an unprecedented success and we've got the final wrap up where the site used to be at http://blogactionday.org/ complete with statistics, sample posts, details of the huge amount of press coverage we had all overthe world, quotes and more.
It's a must see. Please feel free to spread the word around as it's great for people to really see what we achieved together.
And if I could just say a huge thank you to every single one of you, all 20,603 registered bloggers who took the plunge even ifit meant going off their regularly scheduled programming and stood up to be counted.
Also thank you to everyone who helped out with the effort, in particular Leo Babauta whose contacts, writing and enthusiasm pushed the enterprise forward, my wife - Cyan Ta'eed who braved the media and fronted up to interviews around the globe, John Brougher who put together the superb video, Ryan Allen who performed the elite coding to keep the site up despite barrages of traffic and most importantly my Dad - Fuad Ta'eed who valiantly looked through thousands of blogs to give the tick of approval, every single day for two months.
So until next year when we get back together for Blog Action Day 2008,
This is Collis signing off, on behalf of the Blog Action Day team
