1. Friday is the third annual installment of Nancy Pearl Wannabe’s Choose Your Own Blogventure, this time with a spooktacular theme. For the rookies, Choose Your Own Blogventure is very much like those Choose Your Own Adventure books we all checked out from the school library as a kid, except easier to jump around thanks to the ease of computers.
Yours truly will be participating again, but as is customary, NPW will kick things off with the opening chapter. So on Friday, GO TO NPW FIRST BEFORE ANY OTHER BLOG. I’m super-serious about this. Also, budget a good two hours or so to get through every prong of the CYOB tree. Here is a link to her blog. Bookmark it NOW.
2. Noelle at The Daily Tannenbaum gave me an idea for a blog series the other day, and I wanted to see what you all thought. Noelle wrote about the new pedestrian bridge that crosses the Hudson River in her town in the Hudson Valley. She included a link to some Flickr photos of the area.
I loved seeing the little window into her world there, and I thought it would be really neat if we all posted a few photos of our own stomping grounds — our houses or streets that we live on, the drive we take to work, the coffee shop we frequent, etc. We all live in such unique places and know so much about one another, but sometimes it’s hard to picture a setting where your life stories are taking place. Would any of you be game for that? (And if so, I’m open to cutesy titles for such a blog series).
