The “Season”

The “we can hob-nob without leaving the comfort of our computers” Season

If you have an event you’d like to add let me know and we’ll get it on The Calendar!  For more about this project, and some general ideas check out the post where this idea started to take shape.

This is a fluid page, and will get updates as new events occur (so check it often!  I’ll also try to make note of updates on a semi-regular basis… at the very least a start-of-month summary of upcoming events!)

Love Your Local!
Eclectic Alli The holiday shopping season can get a bit crazy, and I know it is a time when many places there is an upswing in the “Buy Local” movement. So, while we are scattered around the world, why not share some of our favorite local places, and why we love them? Probably another blog-hop.

My Favorite Escape
Eclectic Alli A little escapism literature can go a long way.  Again, details pending but some sort of blog-hop encouraging the sharing of favorite “read to escape” books

  1. I may try to make you a banner if I have time… Sometimes I love my graphics and sometimes they’re unsalvageably awful, but how do you feel about pictures of people hobnobbing in London? 🙂

    FYI, female characters week is currently scheduled for next week, Sep 28-Oct 3. You can include it if you want or you can hold off, since it’s already part of the Feminist Friday series and could potentially be rescheduled. Basically I’m posting some recommendation lists throughout the week and seeking further recommendations, and then on Friday I’ll tie things up with the Feminist Friday discussion post on the topic of “strong female characters” in general. So, people are welcome to chime in with recs, and if they wanted to do posts of their own of course they’d be welcome!

  2. wow. This is impressive. Sadly, because of the way my schedule works, my “season” runs from Jan 2 to July 4, or thereabouts. Once you get into the spring, you might want to add the April A to Z Challenge. That’s a huge event that draws 2K bloggers or more. I’m already planning for it 🙂

    1. Well, my season ends as another starts 🙂 perfect! Depending on how this goes, and how crazy it makes me, I may just end up playing year round “activities coordinator/compiler”…. I have been accused of being a list-making, organizing kinda gal…

      1. I feel you. I’m an organizer, too. I overextended myself badly at the end of July, though, and my social media has suffered. Just recovering from it, really. Anyhoo, carry on! I’m happily pinning and tweeting the banned books posts, still. Looks like I’m not going to finish in one go. You folks have been busy this week!
