Okay, so last night we started the first ever #BloggessBookClub and promptly crashed Goodreads within 17 minutes. That’s got to be a new record. One I need to apologize for, probably. Then someone started a chat and it was so busy I felt like I’d walked into the matrix. I was kicked out within 6 minutes. This is why we can’t have nice things. It’s also why we could easily take over the world (or at least a small city) if so many of us weren’t so easily distrac….look, dust!
One good thing that did come out of last night is that a ton of people met other people just like them (yay!) and also a discussion was started amongst readers about what to call each other (like how Doctor Who fans are Whovians) and they settled on Lawsbians, which is kind of awesome. And, of course, there is a t-shirt.
In the end I think we discovered that there aren’t many places that we can’t crash so we’re trying a new one tonight (at 7pm central). It’s called twit cam and all you have to do is log onto twitter and click on the link I give you at 7p, and then you can leave comments on the side (using twitter) and ask questions and I can talk to you via webcam. I’ve heard it’s very resilient. I give it 20 minutes before we crash the whole system.
So if you want to look at last night’s chat (it’s a bit of a chaotic, overwhelming mess – but in the best way possible) you can click here. If you want to meet up with other Lawsbians (or come up with a better name for us) you can click here to share your twitter handle, blog info. If you want to leave a question for tonight you can do that in the comments section here and I’ll start with you. Please leave questions or else I’ll just be weirdly talking to myself. Or maybe I’ll do a live reading. Or maybe I’ll panic and flash the camera. GOD ONLY KNOWS, PEOPLE.
As a reminder, tonight we focus on the book through chapter 7 (Draw Me a Fucking Dog) but there are no real rules because none of us could be expected to follow them.
As always, you guys rock.
Thank you. Seriously.
