OK, as per discussion about how the spotlight threads are (not) working, let's move to a model where everyone who wants to be a part of those signs up to participate.

 

What does it mean to sign up?

 

Signing up here means that:

 

1) You will, at some point in the next few months, have a thread where you are in the spotlight. This means that others will ask you questions. You don't have to respond to everything, but if you are signing up here, that means you are willing to at least answer some of them. smile.gif

 

2) You are also interested in getting to know the other DDC members a little better, and will ask a question or two in some or most of their threads, pick up on things you think are interesting and ask more, etc.

 

Basically, you want to participate in these threads by asking questions, and, when it's your turn, answering questions.

 

What do I do to sign up?

 

Just post a reply here that you would like to participate.

 

We will leave this thread open and people can keep signing up as they like.

 

What happens after signing up?

 

I will start individual spotlight threads starting this coming Monday. We'll go down the list in sign-up order. Once we start to have an idea of numbers, I'll figure out approximately how often we need to start the threads. We may need to do two each week, or something like that.

 

What if I already had a spotlight thread?

 

Since a number of spotlight threads have been pretty low in participation, I think it's fair for those who already had a group spotlight thread to sign up for an individual one as well. However, if anyone disagrees with this, please say so.

 

What if I don't think I'm a "regular"?

 

All the more reason to have a spotlight thread so that we can get to know you! smile.gif  Please do sign up if you want to participate. All DDC members are enthusiastically and warmly welcome to participate.

 

Concerns? Questions?

 

Feel free to post here, on the other thread, or PM me.

 

Looking forward to getting to know everyone a little better!love.gif

List of spotlight threads below. Although we could technically get through everyone who is currently signed up by October, that means that there is no room for anyone else to sign up, and there is a strong possibility that some DDC members will have their babies before they have their spotlight thread. So I doubled everyone up, I hope no one minds.

Nope, it's not too late.  I can't add you to the list above, but pi will do it when she's online again, I'm sure.  In the meantime, go ask questions in the current threads!

Sorry they were a day late, ladies, I unexpectedly got to go visit my husband, so I was away until this afternoon!

How about a sticky/link for this thread in the header? Since you always post in this thread who is being spotlighted, that'd help me find the current threads.
