New Team Blog!

With the recent announcement of the hiatus of Master Yoda's blog and Grievous/Rage's blog, as well as the new "reality show" ideas posted by Jon and Jango, it seems that we're all looking for some inspiration and fresh ideas. I am no exception. Therefore, I have just launched a new blog called "Dex in the City." This is a team blog and I hope you will all join in.

Q & A:

1. What's the purpose of this new blog?
The premise is that this is Dex's Diner and anyone can stop in and share a story, post an excerpt to promote their blog, or just gossip or vent about anything. I want this blog to be a "jumping off" point that will link to all the other sci-fi bloggers. I won't be linking to the profiles - I'll be linking to your actual blogs.

2. What are the rules?
I'd like everyone to post in character. You can post just about anything you want. "In character" doesn't mean you can't blog about whatever you want. For example, as Padme, I might blog about something cool I bought or a TV show or song I like - and these can be real items. Dex might also occasionally post links to really great blog posts or sci-fi news that might be of interest to us all. I know it sounds confusing, but basically you can post anything as long as you are speaking as your character and not saying things like, hey I'm going on vacation and won't be blogging for awhile. That is what Unplugged is for.

3. Who can join?
All sci-fi bloggers, not just the Star Wars universe. If you want to participate, email me and I'll send you an invite. Also, can one of the unplugged admins send me an invite for Dex to Dex.Diner@gmail.com - thanks!

4. Hey, you hardly ever update your Padme blog and now you're starting a new one? What's up with that?
Ah, a little-known quirk in my personality. I love to START things. I love to organize, develop, create, get it off the ground. I have too many ideas for my own good. I'm really excited about this new blog and now that it's officially launched, I do plan to go back to posting as Padme more often.

Finally, there's a thin blue line showing above the posts section. It doesn't show up in IE - only in Firefox (go figure). If anyone can look at the code and help me get rid of that line, I'd be very grateful!

as Michelle beat me in sending the invite out I added a link in the side bar to the blog, I look forward to seeing/using that blog. Nice Idea though!

and that line... it isn't a line, it's a gap between the 2 images, i'm not sure how to get rid of it though

Do I get to add stupid comments even though I'm not part of this whole extravaganza?

You make as many stupid comments as you like, that's what we all do anyway.
