I've done some thinking and I think we should stick with the seasonal theme (I'll just find something else to write about,) but we still need a title. Any ideas? I am very bad at coming up with titles!

We've also set the date for Tues. Oct. 27, which leaves plenty of time for everyone who wants to participate to get their posts ready.

Little late here, but I'd like to join too. I personally like a "Day in the Life." How about...

"One Day in October:A Day in the Life of a Writing Mama"?

I don't know...I think that a title like that might be somewhat limiting...people who want to write about more seasonal topics might not find it a good fit. And I think there are probably quite a few bloggers here who don't feel quite up to calling themselves writing mamas just yet, for whatever reason.

Naming it something broad and basic like "The Writing for the Web Fall Blogfest 2009" gives participants a lot more freedom in choosing their topics and how they'd like to structure their posts. Harvesting, fall traditions and back to school are possibilities. And anyone who wanted to do a day-in-the-life type post could still do one. Bloggers in the southern hemisphere can celebrate spring if they want to, which would provide an interesting contrast in the seasonal posts.

Let me know what you all think.

Sorry everyone, I've been dealing with some family issues that have made it impossible for me to devote any time to this. I intended to post to this thread last week, then it completely slipped my mind. I think the blog party was a good idea, but now is just not a good time for me. I do hope we'll be able to organize something similar in the future.

Sorry to all for being such a flake.
