Ramblites, I have two problems that are entwining into a nice opportunity.
Problem One is that I'm running out of random things to rant about on Thursdays. I know, I know: it hardly seems possible. But I've spent a whole year's worth of Thursdays ranting about feminism and ableism and racism and my list of things I need to educate the world on is getting steadily smaller.
Problem Two is that I'm increasingly concerned that if you're not showing up for Narnia or Twilight, you won't show up at all. You non-Narnians, non-Twilighters know what I mean: some weeks I just don't enthrall you. I know that.
The Opportunity is that I've long wanted to do more book deconstructions but I simply do not have the time. I mean, a Wednesday deconstruction series or a Monday deconstruction series on top of Narnia Tuesdays and Twilight Saturdays is not feasible. But you know what is feasible? Pop-up deconstruction posts on Thursday to supplement Random Thursday.
Yay! The up-side here is: Ana has fresh content to post, we have non-Twilight, non-Narnia, non-Ism 101 posts to chat about, and every Thursday is like a surprise party. The down-side is that we may end up going 4-8 weeks between posts on a specific book. I'll maintain the series threads in the Deconstruction page and be proactively vigorous with re-capping and I think that will work.
But I wanted to poll you guys on some ideas and gauge interest on some upcoming projects. Please vote as close to your preference as the poll options allow -- the top option is always SUPER INTERESTED and the bottom option is always TOTALLY NOT and you don't need to "weight" the options across all the polls -- you can vote interested in everything if you want, or in nothing, or in a mix. Thanks!
