I remember the spotlights here being primarily monologues-- like week-long blogs about that family's homeschooling life. My DDC is also doing spotlight threads, but they're very different--people are asking the spotlighted person questions, about whatever springs to mind. Will these be more like the first set, or will there be more dialogue? Or is that up to the individual posting for the week?

I'd love it if there were more dialogue. I love to answer questions and get feedback on our activities. SOmeone always has a great idea or thought-provoking question.

I see these as a blend. The OP will blog (monologue), but other posters will be inspired to comment or ask questions about the blog.

I'm in. This'll be fun to read about everyone. Being new to it, I'm voracious to know how and what other's do.

Thanks for the great idea!

I'd like to particpate as long as I'm way down the line. I want to see how others post first.

Is there room for one more? I'm pretty new here, been on MDC for years though. I'm homeschooling my 8 y.o ds, 5 y.o. dd and my youngest dd is 2.5 y.o. I'm always anxious about wether or not I'm doing things well or "right" or whatever. Reading what other people do and being in the spotlight could really help.

And do we get to ask questions?

Also... will there be a list posted? I was a little confused about the organization.

Yes, feel totally free to ask questions. I'll also post a narrative of what we've done (or rather what I can remember that we've done.

I'll also give a brief intro for me and my kids and our general lifestyle.

Sorry
I think of this thread as the list, but we won't go in exactly this order. I suspect it will be pretty close though, and I'll definately give you warning and time to pass for another week if you'd like. So the process is this:

I (Wilhemina) will check this thread to see who has the upcoming week. I'll PM that mama to ask if she is ready to be in the spotlight. If she is, she'll start her thread when it's time, if not she can PM me to pass for now and I'll PM the next mama.

If you know now that there is a particular week you'd like, just PM me and I'll do my best to keep track.

We already have the next poster (after MaWhit) ready to go next week.

Clearer?

Yes, thank you.

Forgive me; I can be obsessive about lists.
