How do I join in?
1. Add the Bronte-Along button to your sidebar and link the button to this page. (copy and paste, baby! or go to the flickr page for the image and grab which size suits your needs.)
2. Create a post about how you intend to participate. (see below for what that might entail) This post should be specific to the book we are working with at the time.
3. Go to the link that corresponds to that book and enter the link to YOUR post into the widget you see at the end of the post. That will become the list of participants for each book.
(Links to lists for Wuthering Heights and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall will follow once we move on to those books.)
What will we do?
We’ll watch the films, read (or re-read) the original classics, maybe even indulge in a little fan-fic.
We’ll blog about it, maybe paint the characters or do some crafting related to the stories. We want to see your work, so be sure to join the Flickr group and post your creations as you make them!
What if I don’t blog?
Fret not, dear one. There are plenty of ways for non-bloggers to participate. The simplest way is to join in with the reading and watching! You can comment on the blog posts, join the facebook group, add your photos or artwork to the flickr pool or converse on twitter.
Who knows, you may just be inspired to start a blog once you see how much fun we are having!
What if I am not crafty?
Again, no worries. Just chime in with the fun in whatever way seems right to you. However you feel like expressing your enjoyment of the Bronte sisters is just fine with us.
And, just as it says up there for those who don’t think they’re particularly “bloggy,” this might be the perfect time to stretch yourself and try something you’ve never tried before! Everybody starts somewhere, and all it usually takes is the right kind of inspiration…
And of course, YES, there will be an Austen-along. Stay tuned for THAT. We are only getting started!
