fill in friday “a community story”

August 14, 2008

it’s baaaaaa’ack! ok. so last weeks fill in friday was a HUGE success and a blast! YOU all made it so much fun! thank you for being a part of this community story – this is your baby!

to help FIF run a bit smoother i wanted to post a few “rules”. yes. i said rules. i know none of you are accustomed to rules here at inProgress – but i do think you will appreciate this effort ;

1-FIF will now have a 300 comment limit. not that there will be that many. but this will help keep the video at an acceptable length of time

2-the last commenter will be asked to start out the next weeks fill in friday story. of course you can decline. but please don’t 😦

3-each comment should be no less than 3 words and no more than 5 words

4-dont forget to refresh the page before you submit your comment just in case someone has beat you to it

that’s not so bad. easy rules to follow, eh?

i will post the video on the monday following FIF. this will give NorEaster time to edit the story. yes, my dear friend Nor has offered to edit these weekly! how incredibly generous is that?!! tell him thanks!!!

and i cannot fail to mention some of the other brain work behind FIF “a community story”… the Princess pretty much started this idea a while back. yah. she’s pretty incredible too!

let’s build a story…one comment at a time

here we go…

it was hotter than usual…
