As I mentioned last month, we are doing something a bit different this month, and writing some instructive posts based on each other's requests.
Presuming all of us get around to posting, topics will be as follows:
- Catherine - Essay/paper writing
- David - Costume building
- Jeff - Gingerbread houses
- Megan - 101 things in 1001 days
- Scott - Talking to strangers
Contributors: You can interpret your topic any way you want, and you can write about anything else you'd like to share as well (within reason, obviously, not like 200 posts over the course of the month, but I don't think any of us have that kind of time on our hands). Make sure you tag your post with your name/blog identifier, so that if any potential readers like you and hate the rest of us, they can find your posts easily.
Everyone: There is a poll for the November topic in the sidebar, and you can vote until the last day of this month. Whichever topic gets the most votes gets written about next month.
Some of the topics have been languishing on the poll for months but continuously getting a vote or two that prevent them from being discarded. In the interest of keeping things fresh, I'm going to say that three months without votes, period, will get a topic kicked off of the poll (topics currently in danger of that are writing, reunions, travel, and manual labour/skilled trades).
Comment on this post or the topic ideas post if there's anything you'd like to see added to the poll.
