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.
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 ARE A GIFT.
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?
