For Those About to Blog, We Salute You March 27, 2010Posted by gaaarp in Uncategorized.
It’s almost here. The official kick off date for The Modern Baker Challenge is next Thursday, April 1! I guess I should start reading the book, huh?
I have been thinking that, while I plan on baking every recipe in the book, I don’t want the (admittedly self-imposed) pressure of feeling like I have to blog about all of them. When I participated in the BBA Challenge, I blogged about most of the recipes, but I enjoyed baking most when I didn’t pressure myself into feeling like I had to take pictures and try to recall the whole experience, sometimes weeks or a month later.
So, I’ve come up with yet another crazy idea: participatory group blogging. Here’s how it would work. As we approach each section of the book, I’ll post a call to arms, and anyone who wants to can claim one or more recipes for that section. Whoever “claims” the recipe will be the official blogger, and that person’s blog will be featured here. Anyone else who wants to can still post links to their own blogs, but I’d like to have one post for each recipe on this site.
So, what do you think? Is it a crazy enough idea that it just might work?
More to the point, which recipes do you want to claim? Click on the “Quick Bread” link above to pick the recipes in the first section that you’d like to blog about.
