10 Thing Thursday change

I think I'm going to continue it, but with a slight twist.  Instead of 10 Thing Thursday, it'll be 5 Thing Friday, that way we don't have to struggle to come up with as much, but still keeps the idea alive.  Thoughts?  Comments?

Re: 10 Thing Thursday change

  • I second the above.

    First, I could never seem to remember if it was Ten Things Tues or Thurs, but Friday will be cake. Secondly, I agree, 10 is tough. Finally, feel free to mix it up with adding questions if you wish, but don't feel like you need to every week.

  • I'm all for this, as evidenced last week when I stalled around 7 things.  If you want to go the route of having a defined question or 2 you could also have a standard 6th question being "Question for next (or future) week?"  It would be something that we don't have to fill in unless we have a serious question or a GTKY question for the group.  This will take some of the pressure off to always come up with a question when you create the post each week.
