The Summer Creme de la Creme--the Roundup Extravaganza

Winter is home to the Creme de la Creme, but the summer holds its counterpart: the Roundup Extravaganza. Unlike the Creme de la Creme where each person submits their favourite post from their own blog, participants agree to allow another person to choose their best work from July 2007 to July 2008 and in turn, choose their favourite post from an assigned blog (of a fellow participant). The end result is a list very similar to the Creme de la Creme, except that it follows in the same vein as a massive Friday Blog Roundup. It will be a complete surprise to see which post is chosen AND as per the request last year, you will not know who read your blog and chose your post.

For those who are shaking right now, sweat dripping from your clicking finger, wondering how you will ever do NaComLeavMo and do the Roundup Extravaganza, stop sweating and take a sip of cold water. The two do not truly overlap and the Roundup Extravaganza will take about an hour of work (maybe less? Maybe more?) on your part. An hour? That's space that is now free due to a lack of television programming. See, there's a reason this is held in the summer.

Take a look at last year's list and if you'd like to participate, here's what you need to do (read the short version if my all-inclusive lists scare you and read the long version if you like having answers to all questions that may arise)

Short Version:
  • Leave a comment below that states the following: your blogging name or first name, your blog's name, your blog url, email address (if you don't wish to put this in the comment section, email me with this information) and whether you are pregnant/currently have children (I try to match those who are experiencing primary IF with those experiencing primary IF).
Example:
Melissa
Stirrup Queens
http://stirrup-queens.blogspot.com
thetowncriers at gmail.com
yes, I have kids

Long Version:
  • The Extravaganza is open to any infertility/loss/adoption blog (either still trying, on a break, currently pregnant, parenting after IF--either functional or biological IF, adopting, living child free). Yes, everyone. You don't need to ask. If you have a blog that is either on the blogroll or could be on the blogroll, you can join along. If you didn't start your blog until recently, the person will choose your post from whatever is currently there.
  • It is possible to join along if you have a private blog. You will need to give your reader access to the blog (so I guess you would end up knowing who chose your post...) and you will have to start another blog that is public that contains the single, chosen post so others can read it too. If you have a private blog and need help with this, let me know.
  • Leave a comment below that states the following: your blogging name or first name, your blog's name, your blog url, email address (if you don't wish to put this in the comment section, email me with this information) and whether you are pregnant/currently have children (I try to match those who are experiencing primary IF with those experiencing primary IF).
Example:
Melissa
Stirrup Queens
http://stirrup-queens.blogspot.com
thetowncriers at gmail.com
yes, I have kids
  • Sign up is open until June 27 at 11:59 p.m. After that, the list is closed and all matches will be made. I cannot add anyone once the matches are made. Once you commit, you need to follow through and choose for the blog you're assigned. If you bail, the work falls on me and then I get cranky.
  • On July 1st, you will be emailed your match and their blog url. You have between July 1st and July 21st (almost 3 weeks) to read the other person's blog and choose your favourite post. You will most likely not be able to read every entry from July 2007 until July 2008, but skim around and pick a favourite based on what you are able to read. This is not science, but it is a way to wrap someone else up in a great big love blanket about their writing.
  • Email me any time between July 1st and July 21st the permalink for your favourite post, the name of the post, and a short paragraph (two or three sentences tops!) about the post. See examples from last year's Roundup Extravaganza to get a sense of the paragraph. Make sure you have a sentence that explains why you chose that post in particular.
  • Yes, you can only choose one post.
  • Once you send it in, you're done. Please don't change your submission even if another great post is written that week.
  • I will compile the list and post it in lieu of the Friday Blog Roundup on July 25th. You will then get to see (1) the post someone else believed was your best post from summer to summer and (2) a very cool list of posts similar to the Creme de la Creme that becomes an instant pu-pu platter of the IF/loss/adoption experience. There will be posts that are sweet and posts that are sad--ones that will make you think and ones that will make you laugh.
It combines the excellent reading potential of the Creme de la Creme with the surprise element of a Secret Ode Day and brings together community like a NaComLeavMo--what more could you want in a summer activity? Hope you will join along!

Mel, I just wanted to say thanks again for doing all you do. The updates on lost and found (like you mentioning my cerclage today) make me feel like I have some extra support coming from this great group of people when I need it the most. It honestly helps you feel so much better when you're having some crappy moments or bumpy spots. So just wanted to say thanks, that's all.

I'd love to participate, but I don't quite fit in for this one. [On the IF front, we "spontaneously" had one child - he's 6 now - then went through years of IF treatments unsuccessfully. We "retired" from trying a few yrs ago.] My blog is about books for the most part, and only very rarely mentions parenting. I do enjoy reading the other blogs here though, and I'm sure there will be LOTS to read when the Roundup is over!

As always, thanks for your excellent organizational skills Mel.
