Do we do this again in 2011?

Post  Admin on Sun Jan 02, 2011 4:38 pm

Hmmm... participation is way down, even by me, though that might change soon. Do we do this in 2011?

Thoughts?

I'd like to, and I hope to post more regularly next year. I think we should try to drum up interest, though, maybe by recruiting more people. 2010 was pretty thin around here.

Also, when will the 2010 forum be locked? I have a bunch of half-written reviews I'd like to finish and post this week.

Thanks for the comments, sir!

I can do this again in 2011 if desired. I need to come up with a theme and new levels, but yeah, I can do that. Suggestions are appreciated, though. Smile

And as I had made no decisions about it, the 2010 forum can remain open indefinitely for now. Post away. I should do the same, actually. I have several books to review myself in the coming week if I can get my act together.

I'll ponder themes - an idea just occurred to me that might be amusing - and we'll see what we can do.

Anyone else want to comment? Should I send email to the users? Yeah... I should. Will do that shortly.

Cheers!

Thanks for sending the email - I would've missed this otherwise.

I was a participant in 2008 and part of 2009, but totally missed 2010 for a number of reasons. School plus work makes for not only boring book reviews, but not much time to read or post reviews.

If the forum continues in this year, I will do my best to participate. I graduated school about a month ago, and so my life is moving back to a sort of normality. At least I'll be reading more literature instead of books about anatomy and medical assisting procedures. What a Face

(OK, here's my two-word review for the vast majority of books I read last year: Mostly boring.)

The best I can do for recruiting more members is post some sort of invitation on my Facebook account and see if any of the readers on my flist want to join.

31 in 2011?

I would participate in 2011. I have taken a few years off and it would be nice to get back to this again. I actually finished one book New Years Day and a second one this morning, so I have a jump start! Smile

I, too, would like to continue in the new year. I rely on this forum for reviews of books I might never hear about otherwise!

OK... with the comments here and the things I've seen in email, I will setup a 2011 forum ASAP. I will also figure out a theme and get new avatars prepped, but that will take a little while longer.

I will leave this forum open for a while - maybe until the end of the month - for you stragglers who (like me) - still have to write and post some reviews for 2010. Let's get those wrapped up, though, so we can concentrate on the new year.

Thanks very much for the feedback and comments. I am happy to know that there is a need for this, and I will continue to run it.

Cheers everyone! Happy New Year!
