The project is under way thanks to Guntash (Bluefish).
Isn’t it neat that we use a nautical expression ‘under way’ to say that something has started off and is moving ahead ?. The project i am talking about is the new website that Guntash is setting up right now as a collaborative bloggers project based on a very simple idea that i had. The new website is called ‘brains unite’ and will he hosted by wordpress just as my own site is. The basic idea is that we will all post about a single subject once a month, preferably early in the month so that everyone else can look in and comment. It won’t just be writing either as what Guntash has posted so far is that the post could be prose, photography or artwork and i believe that the open nature of the idea encourages creativity and discourse.
Here is the link to the website : https://brainsunite.wordpress.com/
Here is Guntash’s introduction to this great concept :
“To sum it up in a sentence, this website is a platform on which a collaborative project will be showcased. The concept is simple: every month, a group of contributors will receive a random topic which they have to use to influence some content they want to create. Then, this content will be published on the website for everyone to view.
The main aim of the initiative is to collectively showcase the different interpretations and thoughts on the ‘topic of the month’ in order to create an environment where a focused, monthly discussion can take place between authors of posts and followers of the blog.
Anyone is welcome to contribute and share whatever stance they may hold on the subject in question – this will enable everyone involved to benefit from the experience; essentially, our goal is to create a learning experience for readers rather than simply providing them with a source of information.”
