  • Would YOU be interested?

    I'd like to revive some of our blog categories and introduce new ones and make the blog more interesting. WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED in participating?

    We already have a couple of blog categories that are looking sad.

    1. We have a BOOK/AUTHOR REVIEW category with just one review. Do you like reading? Would you like to share with us what book or author you like?

    2. We have a RECIPE category, also with one lonely post. Do you enjoy cooking? Would you be willing to offer some of your culinary expertise, either in the form of a recipe or tips........or it could even be a funny story about how your recipe went swiftly downhill to disaster status.........that's me!

    3. In our previous blog (on blogger) we had a series of 'Meet our Members' where members who wished to participate were given a list of questions to answer. We pretty much exhausted that as we got to the end of the list of the members who wished to participate. I'd now like to introduce a category, possibly named MEMBER'S SNAPSHOT, but open to suggestions for category name. This would be a voluntary thing where each week (or as a little or as often as we had willing participants) we would feature a member. It would be entirely up to that member what she/he would like to share. I just think this may be a nice way of getting to know more about one another.

    For example, you could tell us about...........

    a. your life in general.
    b. any hobbies you are passionate about.
    c. your pets.
    d. your family.
    e. a holiday that you enjoyed.
    f. something funny that happened to you or your family.
    g. something that really annoys you.
    h. something you can't do without.

    etc. etc. You get the picture.

    You wouldn't have to compose the post or anything like that. You would only need to send me the text and any photos and/or layouts (optional) that you would like to include. I would do everything else.

    Good or bad ideas? Let me know what you think, and I would appreciate your honesty. As always, I welcome your suggestions/ideas.

    Thanks!

      1 or 2 book reviews coming up. Lol , the snap shot thing sounds interesting. I tend to forget about the blog,until someone mentions something, then I look, and Like it. Must make it a habit to check it out,because it is a nice space.

        I will have to give this some thought Robyn. One thing comes to mind are travelogues from our members, because we have members from all over the world. This could include places visited, memories experienced, and hopefully photos. Another idea off the travelogue would be for members to highlight the area in which they currently live, or where they grew up. This would be a great way to see the world without leaving your computer.

          Just photos and commentary would be good Jody. But layouts are quite okay too. Either..........up to you.

          I love this idea. I had been toying with trying to put together a challenge about things we might not know about where we each live but just never got around to putting it together. Life seems to be getting in the way right now!!

          Great ideas Robyn ... I'm not sure how you could include it into a blog but why not a map of the world showing where the members are .. maybe a pin or star etc ?

                Oh my! I would love to help with the blog, but I don't like to read; I am more of a visual person, you know, give me a video, and I am a lousy cook!! If anything comes up that I could help with, let me know. How about a movie review. I don't go to the movies, as I have Hulu, Netfilx and Amazon Prime, but I always like to hear if the movie is worth my time or not.

                Lots of good ideas here, so THANK YOU.

                If any of you would like to kick off with one of these ideas, please just send me your text (and images if you so choose). You can PM me, OR send them to justartscrapbooking@gmail.com
                OR send me a link to where you have the document hosted, such as Dropbox etc.

                It can be a Word document, pdf. document etc. etc. If you do something such as a book review, or movie review, I can scout around and get the images off the internet.

                    Thank you Nancy. I thought a PLACES TO VISIT area on the blog would be a great idea. That way members could highlight events in their area, or their favorite vacation spots.

                    I like this idea as well. We just returned from a trip to PEI Canada 🇨🇦 and hubby did well. More restaurants are serving GF foods and we now have apps to help find restaurants while traveling. So he is ready to try another longer trip down south to visit family and friends in anticipation of going cross country again come spring. He really wants to do that this fall but I am the one more anxious at this point.😯 Now that we are home again, hope to catch up. Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer.

                    Sounds like you had a wonderful trip Rose. Our family went to Canada a number of years ago. We went on the Agawa Canyon train tour. It was a wonderful experience with very gorgeous scenery. Summer is going way too fast for me!
