Sorry about the lack of open thread, especially since it ought to have been the mid-month check in. I’ll schedule a make-up to go up Saturday morning. Anyone who wants an idea of why I might not be perfectly on top of things, feel free to go over to Stealing Commas, read everything related to my sister and her family and the things being done to them, get really depressed, remember that I’m still holding back some significant details, get even more depressed, and then wallow.
There is no submission deadline for articles, open thread suggestions and writing prompt suggestions. Send them any time.
The Submission Deadline for the weekend post is 20:00 (8PM) US Eastern Time Saturday.
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 weekend post are as follows:
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.
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.
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.
