Weekend Hangout #8


It’s the big weekend for me — the Pennwriters conference. If you are new to the Hangout, know that you’ll wind up in comment moderation until I get home and can approve you. So go about and visit folk anyway — and if you GET visited, make sure you return that visit!

The hangout is, after all, about networking with some cool people.

Please follow these rules. Like Trevor, I loathe rules. But I do see the point of them from time to time. Here are some that made sense to me:
1. Leave a comment here, on this post. Say hello to me, tell me what you’re reading, what song you’re jamming to… You pick, just say SOMEthing! Leave your link (I can’t get Comment Luv to work regularly) to your blog.

2. Go visit the blog link in the comment above you. Tell them “I’m from West of Mars” and hopefully something nice about their post. Because, you know, the best way to make new friends is to actually read what they write.

3. When three people have left a comment since your last one, you may play again. If no one’s commented for two hours, you may play again. This is the ONLY time you may visit someone other than the person above you.

4. If you’re new here, your comment will go into moderation. I’m going to try to keep on top of that, but do check back to make sure no one missed you. If you were skipped, leave another comment — even if you break the three-person rule.

5. Be nice. Have fun. Make new friends — that’s what this is all about. And, of course, I operate on the Commutative Principle of Friendships, whereby any friend of yours is a friend of mine. Which means anyone and everyone is welcome to play.

6. Game ends Sunday night, even if I post something again in the meantime. I doubt I will, but sometimes, the conference needs to be blogged about as it happens. Or as close to “as it happens” as you can get when you’re commuting from home — and leaving the laptop at home, as well.

Okay, then. Have at it! Hang out!
