Miss Elaine E on the verge of spring

Just a few items before the weekend begins.

This is my day at the 3SIX5 project. It’s kind of a year-long diary of humanity, in which one writer from around the globe is responsible for one day’s entry. 365 days, as told by 365 different people, according to the project’s creators. My post’s title, if the 3SIX5 had titles instead of simply the date, would be Spring Training.

I see that the fabulous JJ has the post after mine, so watch for that later this evening.

Aside: there are still spots left for 2012, should you wish to be part of the 3SIX5.


I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be speaking at BlogHer12 in New York City. I’ll be on a panel with Kathy, Kristin and Mel (as moderator). Our panel’s title is My Blog No Longer Fits Me! and we’ll be talking about what you can do when the issue your blog was originally about somehow gets resolved.

People often begin a blog around a problem that needs solving (and will eventually find resolution, one way or another) and to connect with others in the trenches. Maybe you started a blog about infertility and you’ve since become a parent or decided to live child-free. Maybe you were dealing with cancer and you’re now in remission. Maybe you blogged around unemployment and now you’ve found a decent job.  Maybe you blogged about your weight-loss efforts and now you’ve accomplished your goals.

What now? How does your blog change with you, and what does this do to your circle of friends?

We hope you’ll join us either at the conference on August 4 or via liveblogging or video at a later date. We are open to your thoughts, so let us know what you would like to get out of this session.


There are just a few hours left to vote in Round 2 of the Limerick Chick contest. The winner of this flight will compete with Keiko for the championship, and that poll will open on Monday. The winner will be announced on — what else? — St Patrick’s Day!


My aims for the weekend are high. (1) No emergency medical personnel, and (2) No fire trucks. (reference)

Happy weekend, everyone! Don’t forget to spring forward.

  1. Sigh…these days it seems blogs are taking more out of me than they are giving in return. Oh well.

    Good luck on your weekend aims!

  2. So glad to see you getting even more recognition for your fantastic work.

    Also, I’m sure someone has already pointed this out, but shouldn’t it be 3six6?

  3. Good luck with your weekend aims.

    My IF blog is/was resolutely created around my IF journey. Now I am no longer in the trenches, and I have not culled friends to suit my status. But my blog’s content has definitely changed. I seem to still receive a lot of comments, but that group seems to be the same on every post.

  4. Those are good goals for your weekend. Especially the no emergency medical personnel. I hope those work out. I like the sound of the panel you’re doing for blogger. I will have to watch or listen to that. It definitely fits me and my blog.

  5. such exciting stuff happening in your world this week…could NOT be happier for you!! off to read you other places!!! xo

  6. Wow! Go YOU!!!! I wish I could be there my friend… can you tape it? 🙂 I can’t wait to hear all about it and congrats on your gig! Yeah!
