Growing Pains

Friday, October 9, 2009
Yesterday I posted a poll here at SIS. See it over there in the right column? Yup. The one asking your opinion on our Cafe Chaos days. The days specifically designated for our music, book, and movie recommendations. The days we hope you'll chime in with recs of your own.

It's not that we don't have time to write them or that we don't enjoy writing them. Nor has anyone written in to say complain about them. The thing is, we're going through growing pains. Literally. We're growing!

Bren, Barb, and I are thrilled to announce two more sisters (yes, we come from a BIG family) will be joining us full time contributors at Sisters in Sync. You've met them before. They've filled in for one or two of us when we were away and they often chime in. Starting soon... as soon as we can hash out a new schedule... B.J. and Brandy will be official SISters! Blood and Blog. The more the merrier. The family that plays together stays.... You get the point.

We're very excited about this expansion although it does mean some rearranging. 5 sisters, 3 Cafe Chaos day--uh--7 days in a week? You see the problem.

So, do we do away with Cafe Chaos rec days altogether? Combine them? Alternate them? Or do we alternate weeks for the solo sister feature posts? What to do? What to do?

Please vote in the poll and let us know how you feel about the Cafe Chaos days. Please only vote once please so we can get a fair idea. It's anonymous, so don't fret about hurting our feelings.

If you have any thoughts about our line up, any suggestions, we'd love to hear them. Fire away!

Well, since i vented my spleen earlier, and have since gotten some succor ("please only vote once"?!? WHO would do OTHERWISE?!?), may I suggest:

Saturday, pretty much everyone's day off, time spent with the family, entertaining, etc. -- in keeping, perhaps let that day be Cafe Chaos Day, where you all throw out personal entertainment recommendations, rotating the medium weekly.

Welcome to B.J. and Brandy. That should round you out nicely.

We had a bit of the same problem over at MagicalMusings with four bloggers. We solved it by having a guest blogger on Thursdays, book reviews on Saturdays and "up-coming" announcements on Sundays. There's always something you can do to fill in a day.

Richard, You crack me up. :) Your idea seems to be the one of popular choice just now. Stay tuned!

Hi Liz!

I appreciate the suggestions. Magical Musings has quickly become one of my favorite spots.
