Please note: Unless someone would like to volunteer to help me compile the entries and draft the post, I won't be able to run a Campaigner Notice-Board for the next two Fridays (1st and 8th of October). The next Notice-Board will be on Friday, October 15th.

Hi Elaine, that would be awesome :) Shoot me an email if you could and I'll let you know the details.

Just a quickie to say that as a new blogger here, I'm impressed by the depth of your own blogging skill and getting people to participate in various projects. I can't believe that it's a world I knew nothing about before. I really enjoyed entering your 'Imago' competition, and how it taxed the brain in getting us to use those unusual words. Already have met some interesting people and some wonderful writers who've done a great job with them, and look forward to more. (Also looking forward to telling someone to stop oscitating - if indeed that's a word! :D
