So the way I understand it, whoever wants to play signs up. We assign a date and someone to start a thread that "spotlights" each mama who wants to play. And on that date, everyone can ask that mama all the questions they want. The August DDC is doing it, and it looks like a really cool way to get to know the people in your DDC.
I'll organize, if y'all are game.

http://www.mothering.com/discussions...ight=spotlight

---Update---
Yay, glad so many people are playing. I get the feeling we have a lot of interesting people in the DDC. I've made up a rough schedule to do two spotlights a week. Since Tiny Dancer signed up first, I'll start off Monday with questions for her. Anyone else can jump in and ask questions too. Then later in the week, maybe on Wednesday or Thursday, she'll start a threat titled "Spotlight on MmeMuffin" and it'll roll from there. If you are out of town/unavailable on your week, let me know and I'll swap the dates around. And as more mamas sign up, we can just add them on.

Gone for one day and I missed this?!? I've been hoping our DDC would do this since it started. I sure hope I didn't miss my chance to participate.

Not at all. Gotcha on the list. We'll just keep adding, and if we get too many for two a week before our due dates we can just bump it up to three a week.

Thanks so much for doing this! Can someone trade weeks with me though? I am going to be at my Mom's house from July 4-8 and I don't know how much computer access I will have.
