Group Writing Project: 2009 in Review


background image

It was about time to have a new group writing project. Since 2009 is getting close to an end, I figured that “2009 in Review” would be a good topic for it. Here are some headlines to give you an idea of what you could write (adapting it to your own niche, obviously):

  • 20 Best Web Apps of 2009
  • 10 Worst Economical Moments of 2009
  • Recap of the Mobile Industry in 2009
  • Top 30 Social Media Posts of 2009
  • 10 Promising Trends That Never Materialized in 2009

Why You Should Participate

There are several reasons to participate in the group writing project. First of all it is fun to be involved in something along with fellow bloggers. It allows you to discover new blogs and to network with their owners.

Second, joining the project will motivate you to write a pillar article, which in turn should generate a good amount of traffic.

Finally, at the end of the project I always publish a list with all the entries, and the participants usually blog about, stumble and retweet their favorite entries as well, so everyone ends up getting some traffic and exposure.


If you want to participate here is how it works:

  • Write a post on your blog reviewing some aspect of 2009 (see the headline examples above).
  • Mention on the post that you are participating on this group writing project
  • Send an email to letting me know about your entry
  • You have until next Wednesday (December 09) to write your post, and I will publish the complete list of entries on the following Monday (December 14).

I am looking forward to reading your posts.

    I love the idea about the ‘Group Writing Project: 2009 in Review”. It will give participants the chance to comment on a lot of issues that have affected them within the past year and also network with each other. I am looking forward to participating in it.

    This sounds like fun! Always good to be able to feature my site elsewhere.

  • David Walker

    Excellent idea, Daniel. This sounds like the perfect project; being part of a team, gaining traffic, expanding networks and making new friends.

    Unfortunately, I’m in the middle of offering six free webinars until right after Christmas so participating might get to be very hectic.

    I look forward to taking part in the next group writing project because I don’t want to miss all that fun.

    Good luck with the project Daniel, and may all the participants break a leg.

    This is an excellent idea to get the whole blogging community to participate. Nice to read what does the blog community have to say about the year 2009. Hopefully you get a lot of submissions.
