April 2023 Dewey’s Readathon- Sites

Our first readathon of 2023 is here. Are you reading for this one?

Our sites this year include

WordPress: This blog here is our wordpress site. Expect less frequent posts here. Mostly at the moment this site is where we post broadly useful information. We used to do hourly posts here, but the amount of traffic on here is much lower than it used to be, as other newer social media sites have popped up. I still like the old-fashioned blog website format, so we are definitely maintaining this site, and for stuff like dates and all our various projects, activities and sites, this is a good starting hub.

Twitter: For fast, easy interactions this is a great site, and we are still posting on our twitter account. We had a slow start getting this part of our Dewey’s postings spun up this season, but it is going to be an active Dewey’s media account this weekend.

Facebook: This is one of our most active sites over the past few years, along with Goodreads, so we will definitely be posting regularly on facebook this weekend. Julie, one of our amazing admins, posted a couple BINGO boards on facebook for this readathon. Many participants like to post their responses to the quarterly progress questionaires on our facebook, and we love to see your TBR and reading buddies on there.

Goodreads: This is one of our primary sites, and even when we have minimal activities on our other sites, we always have readathon-day discussion questions, reading sprint threads, various reading challenges, and places to talk about your books, snacks, reading buddies, strategies, etc. This is where most of our pre-readathon and between-readathon activities are hosted.

Instagram: We do photo challenges on this site, and we love to see photo updates from our participants on instagram.

Tumblr: In the earlier days of Dewey’s this was one of thepretty active Dewey’s platforms. (This is the site I was using when I first started participating in Dewey’s, I think). We have a photo challenge on here and also post the sprints and quarterly update questions on this site.

Discord: This is our newest site, which we added during the uncertainty surrounding Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter. This is of course a hugely versatile site, and we will be making better use of it in future readathons. This first event we will be a bit more exploratory and experimental on our nifty new discord server as we get an idea of how me can use its many cool features.
