I can make this particular request as formal as you can possibly imagine. But then I’ll be losing on the particular point which I am exactly trying to make. This is something I have been planning for a while now. I want to create a collaborative blog. Now I’ve already discussed that particular idea with two of my good friends (Bisma Naveed of A Thought Process and Brett Little of Individual expression of a naive mind). But so far, we haven’t taken any step in that particular direction. So far, the collaborative blogs that I have seen on WordPress are generally a sum of two bloggers or a forum of hundreds.
What I want is to have some sort of unique blog, like a journal which is written by a family. A family of disparate individuals, each with their own unique views on the same topic, all with different faith. I want to create a blog full of conflicting stereotypes (Not entirely, sometimes generic knowledge is also important). I want to be a part of a blog which would leave the reader confused as to what he or she just got into. After all, families generally tend to be psychotics (And this particular line is meant as a dark joke, I make a lot of them).
Life is not a solo act. It’s a huge collaboration, and we all need to assemble around us the people who care about us and support us in time of strife – Tim Gunn
What I am asking from interested individuals is that they dedicate one piece per week to the particular blog I have in mind and do not worry, you do not need to think that I’m a rude and mean person who’ll simply end up having his way. I’ll even let someone else be the administrator if the need arises. Or maybe we all can be administrators. As of now, this is just a random diatribe of a wish that I‘d like to be fulfilled. A tentative proposal, if you must label it.
If it’s not too much to ask, do give your thoughts, suggestions, whether you’d like to be a part of something like that, whether you’d like to see something like that. Do not forget, it’s just a tentative proposal which is open for discussion. If you’d like, you can also drop a direct email to me through the contact form.
