Linky Party aka stage at bottom of post, but first enjoy a little
Yesterday's post was super long because it was an introduction, instruction, and induction. Okay, I could have stated that better but who can resist bustin' a rhyme?
I neglected to mention a few things when I scheduled yesterday's post, but I didn't want to add on and make it any longer. Instead I thought I would add this monologue to our dress rehearsal (and thus make this post long).
• Since I'm a relatively new fashion blogger, I'm unaware if anyone has done a blog flash mob before. I Googled it and found discussions of flash mobs on blog posts, but not organized flash mob posts.
• It's possible that others have done something similar. I do not claim to be the first to organize a Linky party or suggest we be twinsies, trips, quads, or other multiples. Fraternal, bien sûr. It is not my intention to plagiarize. I thought of The Truman Show and my rap doesn't sound like David Bowie's Under Pressure. Listen, mine has a pickup note. Seriously though, if this is something you've seen before, I promise I did not copy. Again, I don't doubt that there is/has been something similar.
• I plan to update the buttons. I just took group pictures I've had, blurred them, and slapped on the titles. The "Flashion Mob" one is from my wedding reception--13 1/2 years ago! I'm hoping to make a button of the Flashion Mob Linky Tools thumbnails once we have a good-sized cast. With your permission, of course. I will also add "performer" or "cast member."
• I plan to make this a weekly feature, but not necessarily on the same day of the week. I have hemmed and hawed about this and have rewritten this bullet point many times. Here was my thought process:
-> Since flash mobs can be unsuspecting, I thought it would be fun to make this like a pop quiz. You don't know when I'll spring it on you. Well, I'll have a "Casting Call" the day before. I guess you'll have to check my blog everyday or become a follower. Haha. Well, I don't want to force this on you.
-> I could let you know at the end of each performance when the next one will be
-> I could list the next "Casting Call" date on the title of the buttons. Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
Speaking of weekly features, after I scheduled my post Sunday night, I blog surfed and discovered that Kileen with Cute & Little is starting a feature today. It's called the "Color Brigade" and it challenges us to wear three or more colors in one outfit. What a great idea! How many of us fall back to black or black-and-gray, especially in the winter? That describes my Monday outfit. The Color Brigade starts today as well (my outfit is multi-tasking!) and will be a regular Tuesday feature. Check it out!
Thanks all, that's a wrap!
