Question for the Collective

Forget the crystal ball - I'm looking into my cute little Pyrex bowl to see what the future has in store.

Hello there. First off, sorry if anyone saw my recent Yard Sale Snoop post, posted here. It must have been a premature senior moment. This blog and YSS come up when I log in and sometimes Pyrex Collective is above YSS. I accidentally posted about my favourite beer on my classroom website, thinking it was YSS. Hey, a teacher who drinks good beer can't be all that bad.

Just a question to see what everyone has to say. Up to one hundred people's names can be added to the list of authors. We're somewhere in the 30+ range right now. Considering that the Pyrex Collective has only been going for a couple of months and we're nearing the halfway mark before we're maxed-out, I was wondering what we'll do when we reach one hundred.

Please feel free to chime in. I was wondering if we could beg Google to allow more than one hundred authors, or perhaps have a Pyrex Collective 1 and Pyrex Collective 2? What should we do?


Hope everyone's having a Pyrexily swell weekend and snapping up some cool pieces of our favourite crockery.


  1. Hi Erin, I just wanted to say how amazing a job you've done on this, it's massive, so many contributors and followers in such a short time, it really was a fantastic idea!! PS I'll be posting your Pay it Forward gift this month, could you please email me your postal address :-)

  2. Oh my how wonderful but what to do? Hmmm...may be Pyrex 1 & 2 ??

  3. I guess for starters ask google for unlimited authors, if they say no you could divide it into categories. Like one blog is patterned and one is solid, or one is bowls and one baking dishes?

    Just a thought. Thanks for creating it all!

  4. I like Ana's suggestions. Since there are a number of categories, why not have a few going at once? That way, people who collect only bowls for example, would post on that blog....etc.

  5. I LOVE this blog. I am so happy to take part in it. I say Pyrex 1, 2, 3. The more blogs on Pyrex would seriously have me smiling.

    Not everyone will have access to lets say the BOWL blog cause they would have access only on the OTHER blog. And you really NEVER know what your going to find. And YOU MUST TOTALLY SHARE so I can see. (which reminds me I have some following to do here in case your hoarding and holding out on me)

  6. Let's see... anyone can comment, right? So we'd be limited as to who could post. Could the pyrex 2 blog be used for newer members to create posts and then one of us could copy it or link it over to here? Or is that just too complicated and strange an idea?

  7. Maybe have some people set up as "moderators" of sorts and have newbies submit their entries to them?

    If more than one moderator is contacted then it would resolve the issue of someone being too busy to post.
