Change is good, Right?
I have been playing with our "My Town Shoot-out" blog template and decided that changing the total format is beyond my play skills. I widened the main section and the sidebar a bit so that the information being left on the sidebar is a little easier to read. I want to change up the background colors just to lighten our mood a bit. After all the southern hemisphere is moving into summer and bright colors are right for the season.
There are two other things I would like to propose,
1) changing the collage at the top every month or so, spotlighting photos from your home towns, see the example of the world famous Christ the Redeemer in Rio. You can email a photo to ChefE of a famous place or favorite spot in your area and she has volunteered to take care of this for us. And
2) having each of you write (over time) a paragraph or two - something about blogging, or our group, or topics you found to be your favorites and we post it on the site. I don't think we have to add like a special day for this, just if you feel something write it down and send to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do a post it, trying not to post when other things are happening so you get bumped off the front page before everyone can read it. I think it would be useful if we start labeling so we can search and find things that we want to reread, i.e. a web site referenced.
let me know what you think or just submit a photo and/or paragraph.
