Announcing the New and Improved Weekend Assignment!

As many of you know, Carly and I (Karen) are involved in three memes. The Round Robin Photo Challenges were started by the two of us, almost by accident, back in 2005. The other two are even older, started on John Scalzi's old AOL Journal By the Way in 2004. Carly hosts one of these, now called the Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot, every week on her blog Ellipsis. The other one, the odd one out, is the classic writing prompt, the Weekend Assignment. As of this week, the Weekend Assignment has a new home.

Announcing the new Weekend Assignment blog!

For a while now, the Weekend Assignments have been handed out from Ellipsis and from my own blog, Outpost MĂąvarin, on alternating weeks. No more! The Weekend Assignment blog will now be your one stop for all of the following:
  • Find out what the current Weekend Assignment is, in the same place every week
  • Find out how to join in and play along
  • Help us find and promote your Weekend Assignment entries by leaving your links, just as you do for the Round Robin Photo Challenges here.
  • Find the latest posts by all Weekend Assignment participants (I like to call them "Weekenders," right on the sidebar.
  • Post your own Weekend Assignment ideas, and be one of our "guest professors."
  • Download the Weekend Assignment graphic in a range of sizes, to use in your own blog.

Check it out! The Weekend Assignment blog is now live and online at http://weekendassignment.blogspot.com/. The first new Weekend Assignment will be posted this Thursday. We hope you'll join us!

Just as an FYI, the link to the blog didn't work. =(

There were five links, I think, and four of them worked. I'll fix the fifth one. Thanks for the heads-up!
