Good morning, Remember the Timers! (Isn’t that so much better than Nostalgiaphiles?) I know you guys absolutely luuuuuurve tuning in on Monday for these posts where I dictate what you are going to write about this week, but all good elective mandates must come to an end. This is the last Monday RTT post you will be seeing because Kelly and I are changing up Remember the Time protocol a little bit. Why? Well, it’s mostly because we both felt that while we love RTT, it was starting to dominate our blogs more than we liked. Blogging should be enjoyable and when it starts to feel like a chore, it’s time to reevaluate things. Or eat an entire ice cream cake. Let’s go with reevaluation. It’s healthier.
First on the chopping block were the Monday theme announcements. Feel free to take a moment.
Here’s the new gameplan: instead of posting twice a week for Remember the Time (Monday for the theme and Thursday for our posts that open the linkup), Kelly and I will announce the week’s theme on Thursday along with our own posts that respond to it. This jumbo-sized post will include all the information you normally get on Monday, and it will also help stave off Kelly’s and my blogging burnout for a little while longer. This is good because the world needs to have up-to-the-minute coverage of my relationship with Pinterest that only my blog can provide, and I need to have my schedule clear for these highly important posts.
Also, the linkup will not close on Sunday at midnight each week as it has been. Instead, it will continue through Wednesday of the following week.
If you need a refresher on the new schedule and guidelines, you can always find them by clicking on the Remember the Time tab at the top of the blog.
This week will be totally normal, and the changes will take effect the week of October 28.
Got it? Good. ;D
Now, onto this week’s theme.
Halloween is less than two weeks away, and mischief is in the air. For me, mischief is just sneaking off to McDonalds and spending a dolla fitty on a hot fudge sundae without anyone in my family knowing, but there was a time when I was a tad more deviant. We’re guessing that you have some similar stories. Ergo, for this week’s Remember the Time, Kelly and I want you to tell us about a time (or times…lists are fun!) when you broke a rule, or better yet, a law.
Write your post anytime this week* and then check back here and at Are You Finished Yet? on Thursday to link up with us. We can’t wait to see your posts!
*If you write your post before Thursday, send me the link via Facebook or Twitter so I can publicize it before the linkup officially begins on Thursday. This is a great way to get a little extra traffic for your post! ;D
