My daughter thinks I am very old. I know this because she tells me all.the.time.
Either way, that spells disaster for the weekly Remember the Time Blog Hop that Emily of The Waiting and I have been co-hosting for months now. Luckily, we have formed a disaster preparedness task force team (which is basically me and Em chatting over Skype while she simultaneously tries to keep her daughter from climbing on top of the television and I eat my lunch in front of her. It’s very official). And we have come up with a solution that should help keep RTT fresh, fun, and a lot less like a chore…because we love the bloggers we have met through the hop, we love sharing nostalgic stories, and we secretly love posting old embarrassing pictures of ourselves. We just don’t want to do it every.single.week.
So, from this day forward, Remember the Time will officially be a MONTHLY blog hop. We will post new prompts every THIRD THURSDAY of the month (even though today is technically the fourth Thursday of January. We aren’t great rule followers. Sorry), and bloggers will have a whole four weeks to link up with us. We are hoping the forgiving time frame will allow everyone a little wiggle room to connect with fellow RTT bloggers while also giving you space to work on OTHER things you like to write about on your blogs.
For our very first prompt with our new monthly format, Emily and I have decided to hook up with Rarasaur’s Daily Post Weekly Writing Challenge. You can check the link for more details, but basically, we want you to write about one of your memories from the viewpoint of someone (or something) else. In addition to linking up with RTT (instructions below), you can also link up with the Weekly Writing Challenge by tagging it with DPchallenge and linking back to the original challenge post. Double exposure for the price of one!
I don’t have my own RTT post today, in favor of letting you know about the changes to the hop (and because I’m lazily resting on my laurels of being Freshly Pressed this week for my Superhero Keg Party post…little horn toot…about *that* big). And you’re probably tired of listening to me anyway. So I will post mine later, sometime before February 19th. That’s how long you have as well! Just make sure that when you do, you follow these steps:
1. Write your post. Remember, it can be ANYTHING about one of your memories written from the viewpoint of someone (or something) else…! Just try to stick with the whole “back in the day” vibe ;D
2. Grab this badge and place it at the bottom of your post.
3. Add your link below and come back to see all the other great posts your blogging pals have written! Comment on them and tweet and share your favorites! You can also follow the Remember the Time Twitter account @RTTBlogHop. The link-up closes at 11:59pm EST on WEDNESDAY, FEB. 19TH, so get those links in before then.
