I have been a bit burned out on the Weekly Unplugged Project lately. We just don’t seem to get to it every week and it has become more of a Blog Burden for me, then a Blog Benefit. Plus, public participation seems to be waning along with mine. Sigh… Time for a change.
I have heard from a few people who are still interested. I am still interested too, but now that my children are older I can no longer get to it every week and it MUST NOT become a chore. The point is for it to be fun. So, I have a new plan.
How about a Monthly Unplugged Project? I will announce a theme on the first day of the month, and close the Linky on the last day of the month. That will give everyone (including me) a month instead of a week to come up with a project, do it, write about it, and link to our posts (and/or leave our project in a comment). Those with more time and enthusiasm could do as many projects as they want for each theme.
Over the years I have also been contemplating creating “Unplugged Project Buttons” that people could download and which would link to the project. Button display would be entirely optional of course, but I have had some requests from people over the life of the project, so I guess interest is out there.
After about two years, I am finally getting to the buttons, and have even created a few! Once I figure out some of the technical issues, I’ll put them out for any interested readers to take.
How does it all sound?
