Egads - Contributor List Nearly Maxed Out

Hello Collective,

Just wanted to let you know that the list of contributors has almost reached its full capacity of 100. There is room for about ten more contributors on this blog. I've emailed Jeni from In Color Order. If you're new to the Pyrex Collective, she is the person responsible for the beautiful masthead and the Pyrex Collective buttons at the side of the page. She is a hugely talented artist.

I have proposed that we begin calling this Pyrex Collective I and the new blog, Pyrex Collective II. We can have a huge link to each blog at the top so that one blog doesn't detract from the other.

I'm not sure what else to do, but this is a collective, so I'm open to feedback.

Yours in old timey Pyrex,
Erin Hawkins


  1. Who knew there were so many lovers of Pyrex!

  2. Erin, this sounds like a workable plan to me. Wow! How successful was this! Good for you guys!

  3. I'm not a contributor but as a reader I'd be excited for there to be a second blog to visit!

  4. If it ends up being too difficult to have a second blog, we could always have 2-3 "Guest Accounts" where people could have access as New Contributors. Not sure if that would be better, but if we wanted to keep it at one, that would probably help.

  5. Erin, I would love to be a contributor but have never been able to get the e-mail link to work.

  6. you could always ask for everyone on the list to confirm with you that they want to stay. you could set a time limit to respond or comment and then thin the list. it isn't as "nice", but it would probably be easier than trying to manage two blogs about the same thing. sorry i haven't posted lately, my hard drive broke and i have no pics on my computer now. hope to be back in business soon!

  7. I had emailed to be a contributor and got a reply that I was accepted (or whatever you call it) and to expect an other email with log in info...but I never got that email. Can it be resent? Thanks.

  8. Thanks to all who took the time to respond. I've been short on time to read blogs lately (one of my favourite things to do), let alone leave comments, so I appreciate the feedback. I think having a second blog may be the easiest route, at least as a way to ensure people can post easily and I don't screw things up on my end. Not that that's ever happened...
    I'll email DFWggh and Karen to sort things out. Sorry about the problems signing on. Jeni is happy to design a new masthead for Pyrex Collective II, so we'll get rocking on that soon.

  9. I've also email to be a contributor and didn't get a response.
