I mean, I don't really know what to do short of put the links in a list...if that's all I have to do to organize it, sure, I'm game! Someone tell me if that's all I need to do and I will post some deadlines and the like...

Here's a previous one (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2424098&postcount=5) and here's another (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=101374). Follow their example and you'll do fine. :)

Remember, as the person organizing it, you decide what the rules are. :)

And I'm in. :)


And if you want the thread title changed, let me know and I can take care of it for you. :)

Hey everyone! So, I'm going to head up the August blog chain, so I hope you will join in.
Because we've waited this late in the month to start this chain, I'm going to take the first 14 participants or however many I have by Wed., Aug. 13 at 11:59 PM EST. I'd love to have more time for sign up, but we've waited so long to do it, if we don't get a move on, we won't get done in August. We'll start Aug. 14th. So, leave a post if you want in, and also leave if you'd rather be first, in the middle, end, etc. and I'll do my best to accomodate. Let's get signed up!

I will post the list as soon as it's complete. And will update regularly.

The chain works the following way:

It's not themed.
The first person just makes a post on their blog.
The person following will take some element from the previous blogger and make their own post, inlcuding that element. Please link back to the previous poster with a permalink and also include a link to the blog of the next poster.
The last person tries to tie their post to the first poster and to the previous poster
Please post the links in your blog of everyone participating in the chain, if possible.

So far, we have:

I don't really care where you put me, but I think I'd rather be at the end as I haven't been able to access blogger since two days ago.

It'd be nice to have a follow-up post at the end with all the post links. I tend to miss posts when there isn't a summary at the end.

Can you bung me on the next one please? I have an AOL blog, an e-bay one and a conversation forum I can link from.

Ralph, I don't think we're that far down the list yet! LOL

L M Ashton
08-15-2008, 06:56 AM
Colby, got your PM. Thanks. :) I'm currently out of town, and I was under the (mistaken) impression that I was a little further down the list. I apparently don't read well. :) I won't be able to write a blog post for at least 24 hours, so if that's too long, feel free to drop me to a lower position and I'll get in then.

My keyboard is also a little wonky - keys are sticking - so typing this itself took two or three times as long as it should have. *ugh*

Ralph Pines
08-15-2008, 07:15 AM
My bad.

Polenth
08-15-2008, 07:25 AM
Off to Polenth:

What happens is when the person on the list before you posts, you read their post. Then take something from that post to write yours. You'll see how it works after a few posts.

FreshHell
08-15-2008, 05:17 PM
Do you have the codes for this list handy? Otherwise, I'll have to recreate all the html stuff. I'm lazy.

Dragonfly45
08-16-2008, 06:58 AM
LM- I'll bump you down a couple- sorry, I actually did have you on the list a little later, but when I did the actual linkage, I did them in the order you guys signed up. I'll check with the next person and see if we can just bump you a few places.

Fresh- I wish I did, but I don't know how to do the codes? If you can tell me what to do, I'll be glad to.

L M Ashton
08-16-2008, 05:27 PM
Thanks, Colby, and no need to apologize. You don't know what's going on in my life or what's convenient for me. :) It happens that I was out of town until yesterday and I'm still recovering. ;)

08-17-2008, 04:50 AM
Ok, so snowflake is going to go on and post and I'm bumping Laurie down the list...I've adjusted the list to reflect this.

FreshHell

No problem! I don't know how you'd set it up here but I can fix it on my own blog.
