Year End


It's that time of year, y'all: the end of it. In what's become a tradition of sorts, Callie and I have assembled a month's worth of year-end blog prompts. Think of it, if you're a BVSer, as an annual practice of Examen. Or, if you're a writer, as motivation to sit your butt down and put fingertips to keyboard. Or, if you're a blog-follower, guaranteed fresh postings daily for an entire month! Or, if you're an objective observer, an experiment in deeply narcissistic navel-gazing. We're trying to create a solid list of non-lame-o prompts, and this year's attempt is part of an on-going process.

Join us, won't you?

Um, yes, doing this!

I'm confused - am I supposed to answer all these on my own blog? And if so, Dana, are you going to do the same?

My blog has been a bit quiet lately, so this could be a fun one to crank out...

Yes - thanks for the clarification, Brian! These are for bloggers to answer, day by day, on their own blogs. I'll be doing it, along with a handful of others. We'll probably create a hashtag and link to others who are participating, too. Join us!
