get looped, loved, and peppered

Once upon a time, I had my Best Beloved readers enter their names into my address book, in an effort to keep me organized. The address book provided me with a starting place for the more random of my projects.

When I came back, I decided to start from scratch.
That list was for the old Rarasaur blog. This new list is for my fresh start.


I’d love to have you be part of my adventures still.

Whether or not you blog, whether or not you’re a Presser, whether or not you live in the United States– you are invited to add your name. Who knows what projects we could undertake together?  (I imagine they will be as fascinating as arbitrarily polka-dotted zoo animals. Maybe even more so, if we’re lucky.)

I made the list like last time– with lots of optional fields. Whatever information you give, you’re giving it just to me. It will be kept between us. It will be used for nothing more nefarious than random birthday cards or “Let’s do something amazing!” private emails.

A fun new bonus option is for a DAILY NEWSLETTER— full of ideas and cheer– that I will be sending every day in November. It’s designed for those participating in National Blog Posting Month– for the Nano Poblanos– but it’s open to anyone who wants to be peppered with inspiration. It’ll just run through November.

Speaking of which, Nano Poblano has sparkly new badges, courtesy of the Official Fish of the Peppers. And, our fearless leader– Captain Poblano, Mark Bialzcek— has agreed to steer us toward great things this year.

Are you in?

If so, I’m assembling the official Blog Roll starting now.  You can checkmark it when you fill out your information at the Rarasaur-Rolodex link, or, you can just tell me.  Here. There. Anywhere. Let me know.  I’m just doing early roll call.

And, by the way….


You’re like the sunrise–
Orange, red, and blue–
Under your canvas,

Are the blossoms you grew.
Reaching beyond us,
Enriching our stretch,

Are the trees we painted,

Grown from your sketch.
In the dreams we have planted,
From the wishes we make,
Thank you for dreaming us
... even when I’m awake.

Sometimes people write to ask how to get in the loop. This is how. The loop is lovely, we celebrate often, and we have been waiting a very long time for you.

What are your favorite dreams?


    1. That’s a fancy way to say you’re chickening out? 😉 Have no fear. I think we’ll have official Cheer Peppers this year. Qualifications: Must read and comment on at least 3 peppered posts a day and write 1 post of promotion and/or support at some point in the month. Rewards: Love. Badge. Listing. You in?

  1. The address I just gave you should be good until the middle of December, then I’ll have to try to remember to update it for you… Sometimes I’m amazingly good about things like that, other times not so much… 😀

    1. Yikes! I’ll fix it when I get back on a real computer. But you can put any info in those fields and I’ll figure it out.

      Thank you for letting me know. ❤


  3. After missing all November-goodness last year, I just have to take double, don’t I? So yes, I’m participating in Nano Poblano! as well as nanowrimo again – together with probably starting a new job this month. I’m completely bonkers, am I not? 😀 xD 😛 and I like it!

  4. I might be a pepper supporter rather than contributor this year too, just to experience it on the outside first. I’ve been getting tired of blogs that post “inspiration” more than once a day lately…and I *do NOT* want to even chance that it could happen with this blog! 😛
    If I was to tick the “mail” option, what sort of randomness is it and would it matter I live on the other side of the world to you? 😉

  5. I honestly don’t know if I have the time or will to post every day again. I’ll think about it. I still have hundreds of saved posts from my old blog I could repost, but who knows?

  6. You have all my pertinents already.

    I’m signing up for Team Pepper, but I have a feeling I’ll fail unless I can schedule 7 posts ahead of time. It’s possible. Not likely, but possible.

    P.S. I love the Official Fish Of The Peppers title. It’s so official. 😉

  7. I am going to sign up officially for the blogroll this time so I can add that sweet sweet pepper to my posts! Credit Fish with peer pressure on that one. Since I am writing all my posts a month in advance around a speccific theme (words inspired by my favorite Creative Commons Attribution Licensed music album) I won’t be able to participate in any challenges, but there will still be words and music and peppers aplenty.
