Blog community writing project.

This is inspired by Sha’s suggestion over on Matt’s blog who hasn’t blogged in quite a while:

I’ve got an idea…get everyone to do a blog post on why Matt should blog and get him to read it?

Whilst that is a brilliant idea I doubt it will work, as he’s still way too lazy, but keeping this in mind, there’s also been something else that’s been in my mind for over a year now. It’s a meme Carol had on her blog at the end of last year, ‘The five questions interview’.

In addition, do you remember Kirk’s little project a few weeks ago on the first posts?

Keeping all that in mind, I think it’s time for a new project that combines and touches on all the above:

Why do I blog? or Has blogging change you?

Couple simple rules:

1. You can write about anything as long as it relates to either of the above questions.
2. It can be however long you want it to be, or alternatively however short. And it can be a list or videos or images or everything combined.
3. You have to link back to this post or leave the link to your post in the comments.
4. You have until Sunday, November 18th 2007 to submit your entry after which I’ll combine them all.

I look forward to reading them all and maybe just maybe it convinces Matt to blog again. :)

    Nice to see you all take part in it.

    Just come back after being ill again, so it’ll take me a bit to catch up.

    looks like i never got to make this post. but believe me, this post is on top of my post-to-do list. it’s just that blogging has changed me in so many ways that it’s hard for me to write about it all in a concise and intelligent manner. perhaps i am trying too hard……but then, blogging did chage me so much that this hardship is a natural by-product.

    i still wanna say i will do it. only i am not too sure how much i should censor. it’s not altogether a pretty picture! :mrgreen:

    I personally don’t believe in cencoring my posts, there are some which are very.. direct. It’s my blog, you know, my rules..

    And I agree with you, I’ve had the same sort of progression as well. Blogging does help make things simpler.

    Thanks for stopping by. :)
