Happy New Year for moblog!

(viewed 2452 times)
Great news everyone - moblog has a new server, which should be more
powerful, faster, and allow for some fairly major software changes
too.

When will it start to function?
No promises here - but Mat says...

"We are working hard to get everything set up, tested and running right."

Then when all tasks are completed and the new server goes live, it
should be barely noticeable from a user's perspective, (perhaps a few
minutes of downtime) except everything will be faster!

So it's a Happy New Year to you and a Happy New Year to moblog.

Advent Calendar 2010

(viewed 2013 times)
NEEDED...

24 different 'mobloggers', who will give us their perspective on the festive season.

This is the 4th moblog Advent calendar and up to now only a very small number of people have posted twice, so unless you are one of those people, if you wish to contribute please indicate below and I will send you a link to a google document, where you can sign up against a date.

So grab your date quickly - once they are gone they are gone (as they say!)

Thanks to Bronxelf for the above image.

remember the caption competition?

(viewed 2282 times)
We said we'd give some sort of prize in February - T shirts were definitely on the list,

but it would be good to have some more entries, so please see what you can do before March 1st.

We will then get together a panel of judges and sort something out!

New groups

(viewed 1582 times)
Groups are a great feature of moblog but are easily overlooked.

We would like to remedy this so for starters we are introducing you to two of the newest groups...

Caine's Birds

Make friends, keep in touch.....

Ready for the Christmas countdown?
Will you be looking on a daily basis for the 24 posts from 24 different mobloggers who are helping us to count down to Christmas?

Is the advent calendar linked to your dashboard - in other words are you a member of the advent calendar group?

If you enjoy moblog as a community, then make the most of it, by making friends with people whose posts you enjoy and joining the groups that interest you. That way you are connected via your dashboard and won't miss out.

If you are not a member already why not join the advent calendar group - maybe even add a widget to your sidebar...

and while you are in the joining mood don't forget the caption competition ...

and last but not least - please if you haven't already make a friend of moblognews!



thanks Beth for the image

Time for more fun

(viewed 1643 times)
We have decided to make this an ongoing group, with quarterly prizes, the least you'll get is a t shirt and a laugh!
So if you have a picture that you're posting and a humorous remark enters your head, then post it on the caption competition site instead of, or as well as on your own.
Let the fun begin :)

Remember you have to join the group to post a picture.

Your pictures needed for this year's advent calendar...

(viewed 1800 times)
Well whether we like it or not Christmas is well on its way...

It has become something of a moblog tradition to celebrate with an advent calendar.

As far as possible we like to use new contributors, so if you haven't contributed in the previous two years and would like to play your part in this year's moblog Advent, please email me viv@moblog.co.uk.

If you don't I may well email you - I have a list!

Thanks to Twiglet for the image :)
