Pairing is done….
Alrighty, thanks to Marnie’s stroke of genius, I was able to get everyone paired up so we can get this rolling. The idea now is to check out the blog of the person we will be writing for, just get a general idea how they write, what they write about, etc. Check out who will be writing for you, come up with something based on what you think they could write about and assign a topic. The post doesn’t have to be huge or some sort of thesis, maybe a minimum of 4-5 paragraphs so there is at least some content in the post.
I hope everyone has fun with this and I look forward to writing my article. If everyone can leave an e-mail address in this post it might make it easier for us all to contact one another for sending the articles to be posted. Thank so much everyone for wanting to give this a whirl, if it’s a success we’ll have to try it again!
Hey everyone… seems most people have gotten in touch with one another, if not please get in contact with your pair, whether it be your guest or the person you are to write for.
From the get go I didn’t want to express any “rules” but people have been asking for a “deadline”. I think it’d be fair to have the article to your pair by December 1st latest. If everyone has their articles by then, we could all post them on that date. I know my guest has already sent theirs and it’s great, I also hate to sit on it for that long but it’d be awesome to have these all drop on the same day.
Once they’ve all been posted, e-mail me the links firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post a “master” links post here, which maybe we could all in turn post as well.
Sorry I haven’t responded earlier, got back from vacation at 9pm on Tuesday and went immediately to work the next day and haven’t had much time since. Anyway… really looking forward to the next step here and that’s posting all these articles up. If for some reason you don’t know how to contact the person you are paired with, I would visit their blog and e-mail them from that, most have contact pages on their blogs.
