I'm cross posting this message to my blog because some folk may not have seen this post on the group blog page yesterday.
Now we can create our own groups I thought I'd get the ball rolling with an idea i've had for a little while. Just a little fun side project for those interested.
The concept is pretty self explanatory through the sidebar, but if you are interested and have any questions, do throw them at me here. I'll answer what I can, but much like the dailyme project, it will probably formulate itself as things move forward.
The project aim is to collect 52 mobloggers (hopefully at least that many will be interested, otherwise...) willing to share themselves through a self-portrait and a 5-question interview. They will be a mixture of people who will join of their own accord, and others that I will approach directly (my intention is to approach mobloggers who post / comment less frequently and perhaps won't see this message).
The self-portrait need not be a headshot, or even include part of your body, but it must be personal and reveal something about you (i've seen portraits of shoes, contents of handbags etc. so you can be as creative as you like)
The interview will not be deeply personal, but its intention is to reveal something about you that others may not already know. I'll likely send out 10 questions and you can pick the 5 you are most comfortable answering. The questions will not be the same for every moblogger, but there will naturally be some overlapping from week to week. I'd love to receive suggestions to add to the question bank.
Should you choose to be a part of this caper, I will (at some point) mail you a date for your Friday slot. A week before the slot I will mail you the questions, so you will have plenty of time to get everything sorted.
I'll add to this section should any questions arise.
Join the Group!
We start next Friday 18th July
with our first mystery guest.
