Once we have a roster that isn't likely to change much (i.e., say in a month or so), does anyone else think we might want to start weekly 'spotlight/getting to know you' threads? We did that in my last DDC and it was a really nice way to get to know everyone.

 

I am counting about 111 DDC members so far, so if we did one thread each week with 4 people spotlighted in each thread, we could go through everyone in 28 weeks, putting us right at the point where the first mamas are reaching their EDDs.

 

Thoughts?

 

I am happy to organize it if there is a general consensus that we want to do it.

That would be fun!! We did that in my previous DDC and we didn't start 'til later but it was a blast!

Awesome! And I must totally be living in a bubble because I didn't realize we had that many people in our DDC. Too cool!!

I was wondering if maybe we should start a thread for us to sign up at, if we wish to be spotlighted. winky.gif

If we were doing one person at a time, then yes, we would definitely want a sign-up list, but since we will need to list ~4 people at a time, I was planning to just include everyone on the roster.

 

Way less organization required this way, plus my experience has been that it's highly unusual that people actively don't want to participate. Even if someone does decide they don't want to participate, they can withdraw, leaving 3 people in that week's thread.

 

Feel free to speak up if you have concerns about that approach!

Hey everyone who said they liked the idea -- spotlight threads are now running. Please stop in and add a question or two to the list each week! smile.gif
