The topic is "Party" and the deadline is today: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/858311.html for those in the Idol Minor and for the Home Game it's http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/858517.html

It's our final topic, and our final week of Idol Minor.

We're not quite at the "let's assess stage", but of course I've been doing that the entire time! ;)

It's only the first time we've done this sort of thing after all, and I think if we did it again, that the ground has been set to get more kids involved.

I definitely think a teen version would go over pretty well. One of the drawbacks of a season with minors is that they really can't interact with each other online as much! Teens definitely could.

But that said - let's hear from YOU, the people who have been following Idol Minor. What would you like to see for a "season 2"? Heck, would you like to see a "Season 2" at all, or was this enough of the experiment for you?

Not saying right away, but somewhere down the line.


How was your weekend? Mine was spent in Lowes and Home Depot. Hopefully this is the last weekend of that for awhile. Actually, we are going on vacation next week, so it's going to have to be! :)

The new tile should be in the bathrooms soon with the vanities put into place. It's not "my project" but I certainly am going to benefit from it! :) (and have been involved with picking things out) I'm sure the end result is going to be worth all the headaches. It will be nice to have two working bathrooms again!


I have a job interview on Wednesday. Not sure how I feel about it. But hey, it's a job. :)

Right now, I think that it *may* be "not Idol friendly", but if I can figure out the wifi on the long bus rides situation (may take up to 3 hours each way!) then it could work out to being pro-Idol, especially if I have access on lunch breaks and from my phone.

The job situation, of course, is what is going to determine when I can start the next "real" mini-season. Not sure how many people out there are ready for it though, heck, I'm still trying to figure out the graphics situation for it! :)

A teen LJ idol sounds like a great idea.

I went into work on Saturday because I have reached the agrees-to-go-to-work-on-Saturday level of my writing procrastination. But a good weekend overall.

Good luck with the job interview!

My weekend was domestic and filled with a ridiculous amount of reading.

Good luck on the interview!!! That's quite a bit of commuting...

I know I'm still recovering from Season 9! ;)

I have enjoyed reading the transcript-ed children's writings. I'm not sure that Idol Junior could be successful on this platform however. But that may be my own usage and interpretation of LiveJournal as a medium for discourse and dialogue.

Three hours each way??? (Actually that needs some more question marks) ????? I have enjoyed reading the kids' entries a lot. There could perhaps be interaction built in through challenges next time - e.g., write a story about a character from someone else's previous entry

Olivia and I have been enjoying the junior version a lot, though I wish we had more time to read the other entries and comment, etc. That's really my own problem though, not the contest's.
