It is a really good idea if everyone who wants to come to this event subscribes to this blog. Mick has plonked an admin hat on my head so I have taken the liberty of adding a subscription and registration widget in the sidebar. Subscription is free.
If you want to start posts you will need to register with WordPress too. You do not need to do this in order to reply or comment on posts, only if you want to start them.
You do not need to have a blog with WordPress. If you do want one, they are free. Click register, again in the sidebar (not the pictures below) and then, assuming you don’t want a blog, click the bit where it says ‘sign up for just a username’ and the window will change as in the second picture below, fill that part in and you should then be able to start posts here. If it doesn’t work for you email me with the exact email address you used to register at WordPress, (other email addresses won’t work) and either Mick or I will add you as a contributor to the blog. Like all these sorts of things, you only have to do them once and then it should be easy enough after that. If this makes no sense, let us know!
Please subscribe and add a little comment in the replies to say you have done this so that everyone knows that everyone else is in the loop. For those of you who use an RSS Feed I have added RSS Feed links in the sidebar for posts and comments.
It really is an open-ended feast of an event, so suggestions for broad headings or posts that we can get together on to work out what we want to do in advance would be good.
I’ve got a list of suggested post titles here which I could whip up, mostly full of questions which you should have a go at answering. The more we know about what we want the more likely we are to please everybody after all.
- Transport, Lift Shares, Timetables, Arrivals and Departure Dates, Who’s bringing who
- Oven Building
- Supplies and Ingredients
- Baking Kit
- Teaching Offers/teaching requests/demos/
- What I want to get out of this – a chance to reveal all
- Baking Techniques
- Test Bakes/ Comparative Bakes – we’ve got the space and time to do one or two of these?
- Any other suggestions? Offers to write posts?
As some of you may know I write a blog and it does take up a fair bit of time so these posts will be a bit rough and ready if I do them all, but I am happy to start them off if this will be of use, of course if someone else wants to start a post off or suggest some other titles….
Your first mission is to subscribe to the blog and reply saying you have done so..and if you know where the picture above was taken the first person to answer correctly will be rewarded in some breadly way in July!
