Definitely like this one. Don't know why I didn't think of it!

Quote from: Juni;40494
All of my blogging is thinking out loud, really. Whether it's useful to anyone else, I can't say, but it's useful to me because it gets the thoughts out of my head where I can examine them. Plus, people more knowledgeable than I can comment, correct me and otherwise give me more food for thought.

 
Thanks for that. I guess I just need to relax and go with it (says the very intense and neurotic chick).

That should be positive if we manage it well. A few decades after that though the intelligence is strong enough to be a concern. I agree with Elon Musk and some others on this and don\'t understand why some people are not concerned."

I found out about it late, so I'm catching up on posts now. This Friday is only week 4, so there's still plenty of time to join if you haven't and think it looks interesting!

 
I've started, though it'l take me a little while to catch up.
Before I post the link to my blog though, I should mention as far as writing goes I make a good painter :whis:

So far I just have my first 'A' post A is for awareness

This is very interesting. I won't be participating because I don't have the knowledge, but I'll be reading and learning :)

I think I decided about my C's.
Blogs will be about Cernunnos (as Dis Pater) and Continental Celt(ic Deities)
\'You had to repay, good or bad. There was more than one type of obligation.
That’s what people never really understood.….Things had to balance.
You couldn’t set out to be a good witch or a bad witch. It never worked out for long.
All you could try to be was a witch, as hard as you could.\'

Quote from: Juni;40179
A couple of us were talking about the Pagan Blog Project 2012 in chat the other day, and I was wondering who from TC was participating? I also thought a thread might be a good place to share prompt ideas, especially for the tricky letters. (Q or X, anyone?)

 
I've been fighting the temptation to join this one since I first read about it in early January. There's a raging internal argument between "you don't need another project" and "you really need to post to your blog more often."  I can feel myself giving in to temptation even as I type this. A is for Another Project...

I may do "certainty", but haven't decided.

C is for confusion? ? :confused:

I liked it, and I especially liked the comment of a "surface world". I'll have to use that to (hopefully) make some of my points clearer. (I wish I had used it in my last post, actually.) :)


I did my second A as "Anthrax, Afterlife and Ans" and my upcoming B entry will be "Baldr's Death: Why Loki Couldn't Weep".

How about, C is for cookie? That's good enough for me.

Apparently, I can come up with a bunch of topics for everyone else but just stare blankly when it's my turn. Ha.

Are you going to PW protect those entries? I have your blog on my Blog Roll but most of your entries are protected. I know the PW for the herbal ones, but...

I've decided that my C entries will be "C Is For Children" and "C Is For Communication."

Nope, the PBP entries will all be public (as soon as I start writing them!).  I'm doing PBP for just that reason - to get myself posting regularly and publicly.  Getting my herbal notes organized into a coherent and semi-useful format was supposed to be a side project.  Instead, it's eaten my blog.  PBP will hopefully get me back on track a bit.
