I have been toying with this idea. We have all had guests post on our blogs, right? We have all done posts on other people’s blogs. But what if we did a group project? What if we did some kind of art village in blog form?
You know what I am talking about, I presume. Those little enclaves where artists gather in one place to do pottery and glass blowing and wood carving. We could do that in blog form. I did sort of the same thing with that post I did where we are trying to break the world record for the most comments on one blog. It is still there—> at the top of my sidebar—> with a link to the post. It has 44,656 comments on it. We turned it into a chat room on a blog… the first ever, as far as I know… and it does have more comments than any other WordPress blog post by a non-famous person. *(You should go leave a comment there, if you haven’t already… or even if you have)*
But what if we gathered a community of writers and artists? What if we shared each other’s posts, and did links, and guest posts. What if we gave tips and ideas, or had group discussions on things like developing characters for novels, or step-by-step how-to lessons on… whatever.
This could be fun. A place where painters and graphic artists and photographers and wood carvers and song writers and novelists could all showcase their work.
We could call it something like: ‘Creative Juices’… okay, we can talk about that.
Let me know what you think.
