Back2School Blogathon || Reflections and Announcement

Friends and colleagues!

Thanks to one and all who helped to make the inaugural blogathon at Faith ON Campus such a great success!  It was a blessing to be a part of this great event with each of you!!  I’m thankful for all of the new connections and conversation partners that

Here are the stats from the 3 day event:

  • 18 authors/contributors
  • 410 unique visitors
  • from 7 countries/territories
  • making 710 visits
  • viewing 4,762 pages
  • making 52 comments (so far)

And one of the things I like best about online ‘conferences’ like this is that the conversations can continue on!  So if you haven’t had a chance to engage in some of the great conversations from the Back to School blogathon you should definitely check them out at the blogathon home page.

While we’re on the subject of blogathons… I’d like to announce the Real Life, Real Faith blogathon scheduled for Nov. 2-4.  You can read a little bit more about it at the Facebook event page.  I’d encourage you rsvp to the event there so you can be kept up-to-date as the event begins to take shape!

I’ve also decided to leave the poll in the sidebar open for another week to allow you to chime in on what you think some of the biggest issues our college students face today are… know that this will help to bring shape to the Real Life, Real Faith blogathon… so if you’ve got an issue that’s not listed in the poll, please send me a message with your thoughts!

Thanks again to all of you who care about college students — and for your willingness to serve as guides to college students around the world during these critically formative years!
