Goals for Stream of Consciousness Saturday

36 Comments

I’ve been receiving a lot of positive feedback for SoCS in regards to it not only being fun to participate in, but also for the new connections that are being made between bloggers. However, without advertising it on HarsH ReaLiTy, the word doesn’t seem to be getting out that fast. And after all, the more new bloggers participate, the more new bloggers we have the chance to meet and follow and have follow us.

In light of this fact, I’ve decided to set up some goals:

1. Write a blog post (probably close to or on Friday this week) and ask people to reblog or copy and paste to hopefully encourage each of our “outer circles” to join in.

2. Set up a contest for the design of a new SoCS badge that we can all display on our blogs and/or display in our weekly posts. The winner will of course have their badge on display with their website name on the badge for all to see. Judging will be made public.

3. EVENTUALLY, when and if SoCS gets big enough, set up its own WordPress site and invite other bloggers to come and set up the week’s prompt and watch over the proceedings.

If you can think of ways to promote SoCS, please let me know in the comments.Β  The more, the merrier!

  7. What kind of badge were you thinking about having? Text-based or some kind of logo/symbol of something? Contests are great, but if you had something in mind, I’m curious.

  8. I’ve been MIA in blogging but I always pop in on the weekend to check out out your prompt. I hope to get motivated to come back to blogging soon, maybe next weekend I’ll join in πŸ™‚

  10. Linda, I think this is great! My suggestion would be to start giving the prompts 1 week in advance like most challenges so that we can have our work ready to post by Friday. Not everyone is able to write 1 day before posting. I also love the idea of the badge. This is great inspiration thanks Linda!

    • Thank you! I’m not sure I would want to do the prompt too far in advance though. The idea behind stream of consciousness writing is not to think about it too much. Don’t you think a lot of people would be tempted to ponder the prompt too much before Saturday comes around? πŸ˜›

    I have to express my concern. One of the reasons I have participated in SoCS is because it’s spontaneous. You throw out a word or an idea and we take that and run with it…just let it flow. While I understand your desire to grow SoCS, I’m concerned about “institutionalizing” it. A badge? A separate WordPress site? I dunno.

    • I don’t know that it would really be institutionalizing it. The badge would simply make it more easily recognizable for newcomers and the idea behind giving it its own blog is really so that my own doesn’t BECOME SoCS if it gets that big. That’s still a really big “if.”
      Just go with the flow, my dear. It ain’t gonna happen overnight. πŸ˜‰

    • Having said that, if no one thinks it’s a good idea I’ll drop the goals. I don’t have any need for expansion with this personally. It’s for everyone else. πŸ™‚
      I do appreciate your input. πŸ™‚ Thanks, Doob.
