I had asked what we'd like to do in our DDC, this was brought up.

So, do want want to do a whole week of question asking and such? Or do we want to do for a few days, one day, etc?

I'd love to get this started. It's a great way to get to know each other better!

A week seems like a long time. Maybe just a few days? Or a different theme for each day? Questions, pictures, favorites etc?

I think it's normally done for a week. Not all the ladies get on every day so eventhough it's a week, the first few days are pretty active and then it dies out as the week progresses (is that a word?) but still gives everyone a chance to ask questions.

A week is standard and maybe we could have two moms per week? It was a MTWTF thing. Monday is a basic questionnaire. Tuesday is pictures. I can't remember what every day was but I am sure we can find an example for ideas on other boards. I don't always find time check in every day, so I like the idea of it being a week. Maybe it can be done in order of due dates? We also had moms post pics in the private forum who were uncomfortable posting pics in the public one.

A week sounds long but since ladies don't get on every day I think if is a good amount of time!

This is why I wanted opinions because I also thought a week was too long. Either the person isnt' on every day to answer all the questions, or the questions die out before the week finishes.

We could do a split week between moms. 3 days each? Then one day off before the next split?

Also, you don't have to answer or post anything you don't want to.

And if you don't, when we do sign ups you could PM me and I'll make a note on a list I'll keep of all those signed up and I can put that as a disclaimer in the main post.

I know the board is much less active on weekends though... So the three days might fall on "dead days" when no one is around.

I'm still trying to get used to the boards being so much slower than when I used to be on JM. They were non-stop on my Nov 08 and Aug 10 boards.

Any ideas on how we could work it? Two a week, two days each?

I like the week idea best. I'm also not able to get on everyday.
