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.

    @Carlos, it is written inside the “Rules”.

    @Narayanan, sorry but it has to be a new post.

    @Kodemaster, yeah that would be fine.

    @Sarah, the first bullet point under “Rules” say: “Write a post on your blog reviewing some aspect of 2009”. I believe it is pretty clear where you should write the post?

  • Kodemaster

    Can i write about my personal life occasions in 2009? It had been a great year!

  • Basant Singh

    I am interested. I’ll Contact you soon.

  • Narayanan Hariharan

    Can I enter a post that’s been already written and published? I wrote one a couple of weeks back which will suit this group writing project.

  • Robomaster @ CoolAppSite

    I’m definitely taking you up on this offer! Looks like I’ll write the “20 Best Web Apps of 2009,” I had been planning a post very similar to that for awhile.

  • thomas

    Maybe, I should spend some time on this event. It looks interesting.

  • Donna Kim-Brand


    Awesome idea giving a rationale to review… a key element in developing success. A follow-on idea is to group blog on moving forward in 2010- with projections, prophecies and productivity strategies.

    Thanks for your initiative!

  • Sarah

    I’m confused on how to enter…. Do I write the post on my website? Or do I send it through email? To all Harry Potter fans out there, my website is .
