While tracking down some links for a future post, I came across the new (or new to me, anyway) header over at The Lipstick Chronicles. Apparently the four authors blogging there are now six, but it was the header that riveted me for a time. With all due respect to efforts of the blog owners, that is a rather startling-looking row of heads (although it still doesn't top the photo once I saw on another group blog of an author whose head was flung back so far and at such an extreme angle that the neck looked fractured.)
Photoshopping your blog team is a cute/clever idea, especially if you can't get everyone together in person for an actual group shot. However, I'd try to make all the heads the same size, and refrain from using headshots with varying lighting to avoid that stalker-shrine-collage look.
I've been invited to join several group blogs since I started blogging. Aside from one secret junto and a few guest spots here and there, I never have. It's definitely me, not the groups. But there are writers out there who I'd like to see blog together. Here's one of my fantasy lists:
Linda Winstead Jones
L. (who must remain anonymous)
Now the why. All of these folks have very interesting minds and personalities, and while none of them are much alike, I think all of them would deal well with each other. I also have the feeling if they got together, they'd generate a lot of creativity and great discussions.
Who would write for your own fantasy group blog? Post your list in comments.
