Hello to my Stream of Consciousness Saturday friends and to all who wish to join in the fun this week!
As well as a reminder for tomorrow’s event, I’d like to share a minor update. As it turns out, I’m not able to automatically approve pingbacks in my comments, so if I’m not at the computer when you ping your post, it won’t show up. Consequently I’ve added to the rules, suggesting that after you post your SoCS article, you comment here: https://lindaghill.wordpress.com/2014/03/01/socs-stream-of-consiousness-saturday-the-rules/ with a link to your Saturday post, so others can see it right away – otherwise it could be hours before anyone comes to visit and sees how awesome your post is. Note that I’ve set up my comments so the most recent is on top, so you won’t have to scroll down too far to visit other contributors posts for the current week. If you have any questions, or if this is as crazy confusing as I think it might be, please leave any questions you have below.
Here is this week’s prompt: In your first sentence, include a quantity. Any number from one to a gazillion, or any conceptual number, i.e. “many,” “few,” “a lot,” or even “once” will do.
Have a once-over of the rules by clicking on the link above if you’d like, and then off you go. I’m looking forward to reading all your contributions!
Edit: It’s been brought to my attention that if you link your Saturday post back to the Friday prompt (i.e. this post) then everyone will be together in each individual week. We’ll try that this week and see how it goes. So tomorrow, when you post, add this link to your article: https://lindaghill.wordpress.com/2014/03/07/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-march-814/
Hopefully we’ll get this ironed out before the month is up! Thanks for your patience. 🙂

Won’t it be easier to categorise the ping backs if they link to the post where you provide the prompt rather than point to the first post?
So for today’s prompt I will ping back to this post.

I was thinking about that, actually. The reason I decided on pinging back to the “rules” post, is that it seems more natural to include it in your post every week. Because the new week will be at the top of the list anyway, it’ll be easier to find all the new entries. Also, anyone new coming into it will see the link to the rules in everyone’s new post.
I’m open to suggestions however, especially since you are the ones who are actually joining in. You have a better perspective than I do. Why do you think it would be better to ping back to here? … because it’s more current? That makes sense…

More than being current , my post for prompt two will be in a link where the prompt was posted. So each prompt post of yours will have people posts related to that prompt alone and hence easy to manage and categorize. My 2 cents 🙂

You have a good point. I’ll change the post. Thanks 🙂

Sure Linda 🙂
