It's Time for Spotlight Threads!!! ***UPDATED w/ schedule!!!***

Hey Ladies!!! Here is the schedule for spotlight threads! I will get on the night before or early in the morning and post the thread on the spotlighted person. All spotlights start on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. You can ask questions on each thread as long as you would like to! Make sure to come on and ask LOTS of questions!!!

Wait? What is all this? What is a spotlight thread? See the original post below! It is NEVER too late to sign up... or to change your mind about signing up. wink, wink

Now that we are all (or almost all?) in our second trimesters, I think it would be great if we get to know each other a little better! I am going to organize spotlight threads for individual members of our DDC (only if you want to be spotlighted, of course)! A thread all about YOU! What could be more fun than that?

How it's going to work: 2-3 times per week, depending on interest, I will post a thread to spotlight an individual member of our group. Then, we all post questions that we want to ask the spotlighted woman. (For example, How did you meet your DH? What hobbies do you have? What led you to Mothering? What are your plans for this birth? What are your hopes and dreams? There are tons of possibilities! Be creative!) Even those who choose not to be spotlighted are welcome to ask questions. Then, the spotlighted individual can take her time and answer with as much or as little information as she feels comfortable.

If you are interested in being spotlighted, comment below saying so! Also, if there are certain weeks in the next couple of months that don't work for you, make note of that, too. After I hear which of you are interested, I will post a schedule here so you know when you will be spotlighted.

Who's in?

Yes!! Jodie, I've been meaning to ask you if you wanted to set this up for our DDC. So happy you've beat me to the punch. I am definitely in.

I peek in on the December group's spotlights every now and again--they are such fun reading. Yay!

How fun! I'm in. The last week of September and first week of October are not good for me.

Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

@DuchessTergie Oh, man!!! I am betting that LOTS of people want to know even more about you, though! I know I do! Asking oversharers questions is the best!

Sorry, the schedule has now appeared. I'm feeling like tapatalk does take a minute to refresh even when I'm refreshing. I swear it was not there a second ago. Thanks for doing all this I'm excited!!
