Welcome to a very chaotic Week 9 of Paint Party Friday. We had a brilliant and amusing post (haha) scheduled to go up at 12:01am Friday. It, like so many of your posts, is now lost in all the problems Blogger had overnight. This was the equivalent of a tornado or a hundred year flood for those of us with Blogger. An anomaly, a black swan, it was definitely a challenge to many of us. The same thing could likely have happened to Wordpress or TypePad. It might not have affected as many of us but who knows. So think of this party as one where the heat and power have gone out but no lives were lost. We still have food (and wine) and we are going to have a great time!
We'll skip the poll this week and try to recreate what we would have been said this week in next week's check-in. (They say those posts will return. Anyone taking bets on that?) Meanwhile, here's a question for your comments: How do natural (or technological) disasters affect your creativity?
If you are unfamiliar with Mr. Linky, an explanation of how this tool works can be found on Week 1 and Week 2 check-ins. Please make sure to use your post URL address versus your blog URL address as there are many late visitors who get confused as to which post is for PPF when they arrive (after Friday) at your website.
Hope you enjoy the belated party!
