Irregular Business

My birthday is the third, not sure how that will/won’t affect the weekend post scheduled for the same day, which I’m in charge of compiling.  For now assume all is normal.

Regular Business

Submission deadline for the weekend post is 20:00 (8PM) US Eastern time Saturday.  Articles can be submitted at any time.  Basically all that is needed is: 1) the article, 2) who is to be in the byline (“anonymous” is acceptable), 3) Whether you want people behind the curtain to beta-read it.

Anyone who has submissions for the weekend post should send them in.  Some people wonder if they really deserve to be in the post.  The answer to that is always the same: You do.  So try not to be afraid and do try to send in submissions if you have them.

The sections of the post are as follows:

The Blogaround

Any denizen of the Slacktiverse who has posted an article to their own website since they last submitted to a weekend post is invited, enticed, and cajoled to send a short summary of that article along with its permalink to the group email. That summary and link will be included in the next weekend blogaround. This will help to keep members of our community aware of the many excellent websites hosted by other members.

Remember, this is since you last submitted to a weekend post, not since the last weekend post. For example, if the last time you submitted was a month ago, everything you wrote since then is fair game.

In Case You Missed This

Readers of The Slacktiverse can send short summaries of, and permalinks to, articles that they feel might be of interest to other readers.  These should be sent, as you might expect, to the group email.

Things You Can Do

Anyone who knows of a worthy cause or important petition should send a short description of the petition/cause along with its url to the group email.

Deadlines
20:00 US Eastern time Saturday for the weekend post.  Articles and Open Thread suggestions can be sent at any time.  The email address is SlacktiverseAuthors (at) gmail (dot) com.

This can be used as an open thread, if you want.
