I am so disappointed to log into AW for the first time in the new year, and no January Blog Chain. Shame on you. Shame on me too, since I didn't do it either :p

So let's start ...

Any suggestions? What you would like to do? It will probably spill over into February, but oh well.

FOR ANYONE ASKING TO PARTICIPATE NOW (I will do the ones that are already here) - PLEASE TYPE AN ACTUAL LINK TO YOUR BLOG IN THIS FORUM SO I DON'T HAVE TO SPEND TIME LOOKING UP PEOPLE'S BLOG. SORRY, BUT JUST SAVES ME A LOT OF TIME.

**
THIS CHAIN'S TOPIC: GUILTY PLEASURES (Suggested by DavidZahir)
In his words: By "guilty pleasures" I mean books or movies or something that aesthetically just aren't very good, but which we love anyway.

RULES:
You have 2 days to do your post. Please paste the direct link to your post (not your blog) in this forum when you have done it. If the person before you hasn't done their post for 2 days, then just go ahead and do yours. I am sure someone would have reminded them here. To know when it is your turn, just keep checking the forum, as you will know when people before you do their posts.

Please include links to all the participants' blogs in your post. If you are unsure, check our previous chains, or just ask here. Please also mention and link to the perosn before you and person after you in your post.

Please comments on as many posts as possible. The purpose of the blog chain is to encourage reading one another's blog, and it's nice to know when someone has read it.

Please include me! I'll write about anything. I did enjoy the flash fiction chain a few months back where we were given a name, a place and an object....or something like that.

David,

please elaborate. The only thing I can think of when it comes to guilty pleasures is junk food and that won't make much of a post, unless you want pictures of all the junk food I love. :p

The "blogging helping us as writers" sounds good too.

I'm in but am new to this. . . do you post a whole new page on your site dedicated to the AW blog chain or just an individual post in your blog?

Ah, sounds fun. Not to sound silly or anything, but we would all choose one topic and add an individual post on that topic and then link back to one common area? Sorry guys, I don't mean to sound dense!

Nothing quite like logging on to say "I've been too wound up to participate", to find there was nothing to participate in. 8P

I lean more towards guilty pleasures, but could also go for what blogging has done to help. Either one, count me in.

I'll do it. I kind of failed at commenting on the last one I did, but I'll try this time!

I wouldn't mind how blogging has helped us as writers, or even a prompt (500 words or less) or something?

Guilty Pleasure seems to be commonly mentioned. So let's go with that one. I will start adding the names.

If the order that your name appears doesn't suit you, just let me know and I will move you as you wish.

I think, to those newcomers who want to participate, that it works as follows: the first blogger listed will post on January 12th and include the link to this page as well as the link/name of the next blogger up in their post. Once they have posted, the next blogger is free to post and do the same. My only question is, do we wait until the day after the blogger before us has posted or if they get their post up in the morning, can be post ours in the afternoon? Sorry, probably a strange question.
