    May Blog Chain Sign Up

    May's blog chain will be unthemed.

    Deadline to enter: Monday, May 5th, 10:00pm CDT.

    A quick run down of the guidelines:

    1. Email, PM, or respond to this message to sign up. If you have a preference on where you're placed, include that information. I will update the list as I get more names. If you don't see your name, make sure I didn't miss you!
    2. On Tuesday, May 7th, I will post the list here, including the code for a list of links for all the participants.
    3. When it's your turn, please:
    Post a permalink of the person before you.
    Post a link to the person after you
    Post to the Blog Chain thread here to let us know you've posted (include the permalink)
    PM the person after you to let them know it's their turn
    4. In keeping with the spirit of a chain, please try to take some element of the previous post and build on that.

    So far, I have:

    Me!! Me!! Me!!

    I am just a mom who decided to go for a bike ride. On the longest road in the world.

    Some people say Iím exceptionally brave.
    Others say Iím outrageously foolish.
    I donít think Iím either.

    Sure, what the hell. Is it themed this time around or just a chain at will? And I'll be using http://fantasticalimagination.wordpress.com for this one.

    Can I play? I haven't done a blog chain before, but I should be able to get the hang of it by the time it's my turn!

    My blog is "As Yet Untitled," the URL is in my signature.

    Thanks so much!

    Just letting y'all know I'm sick (we think we have Chikunguniya), so I'll be a bit slow in leaving comments, but I will get to it. When my head isn't pounding and my eyes don't feel like they want to pop out of my head. But I will get to it.
