You are always welcome. You can join at any time.
How much of a commitment is participating?
It's entirely up to you. There is no pressure to participate. You can post once or every week. You can visit a few other blogs, all the other blogs or none. You can write a paragraph or an extended post. Whatever you are called to do is just right.
What's a direct link and how do I post it?
When adding your link to each week's secret, you want to use a direct link. A direct link is the address that takes you directly to the relevant post instead of to your blog generally. For example:
- Direct Link (okay to post): http://starshyneproductions.blogspot.com/2009/01/12-secrets-of-highly-creative-secret-1.html.
- General Link (don't post) : http://www.starshyneproductions.blogspot.com/
There’s no hard and fast rule about when to post. For 12 weeks, each Friday I will put up a post for a new secret. You’ll probably want to have your post up for the current secret before we move onto the next one. Everyone will find their own rhythm.
How do I put up a badge?
If you're using Blogger, the easiest thing to do is Add a Gadget in your Layout. Choose Picture. Add the address for the badge you want:
- Dark background: http://i380.photobucket.com/albums/oo243/next-chapter/nextchapter12dark.jpg
- Light background: http://i380.photobucket.com/albums/oo243/next-chapter/nextchapter12white.jpg
For direct HTML
Please email me for the HTML code. I haven't yet figured out how to post it without it simply giving you the badge itself.
Can I get transcripts of the interviews?
At the end of this series, the interviews and the transcripts will be available for purchase. More details to come.
All the links are gone. What's up?
On occasion, Mr. Linky hiccups and for a time the links appear to disappear. It usually only lasts a short while and they are all back, intact and ready for more additions. If this happens, come back a bit later to check the status. If after a few hours it hasn't resolved, feel free to let me know, and I'll contact my hero, Mr. Linky.
