There are many ways you can contribute to the discussion about What Next? and how we can avoid the icebergs - even if you disagree - your point of view is welcome.
Ask me anything
Use Tumblr’s ask me anything feature to ask questions of anyone or anything on Challenging Duelism (CD). Seems to go through the same technical process as submitting a post.
Submit a post
You can also submit a post to this blog. I have tested this doovy, and basically you can have a Tumblr account or post anonymously. The post gets sent to CD as a message, and then it gets published, if CD clicks that button. Trying to work out fairer and more transparent ways to do this, if you have suggestions, you are welcome to provide.
Make your own blog or site
If you would rather focus on a different aspect or theme, specialise in another topic, or just have your own dedicated space, set up a blog or site that works for you and get the word out. If your blog is on Tumblr I think you can also follow this blog, send Challenging Duelism a message, and you can be followed too, so if we like what each other has to say, or just think it’s worth sharing, the door is open.
Hold community events, forums, barbecues etc (imagination time!)
The founder of this blog (Emma) firmly believes that Whatever Happens Next, we all need to make decisions about it, because we are all affected by it, deeply and daily. This is YOUR chance to decide. Get together, talk about what works and what doesn’t, what your community needs, and how this can be brought to life. Think as positively as you can, and work together to make our world, our world. Use your creativity, imagination, and share your ideas. Maybe your group will start a blog too, and CD will share your ideas as well!
Follow Challenging Duelism on Twitter
I know, not quite the whole name but you take what you can get with these things. Joined this on 23/11/2011 so don’t expect auto-feed for posts before this date. If you submit a post and it’s published, it should be auto-fed as a tweet after this date as well. If you have a Twitter account and you’d like CD to follow cos you’re auto-feeding your own blog or something that’s not on Tumblr, sweet, just follow CD and/or send a message.
Like Challenging Duelism on Facebook & Share with Friends
I was a little hestitant to use Facebook, but now there’s a page for Challenging Duelism
I’ve tested the submit post and ask question thingys and it appears to work. But if you know a better way, tell me. Hey, that’s the point of this site, isn’t it? Discussion about better ways.
*Note: In the old theme, a link submitting widget was available that is not available on this theme. I had a choice between an illegible font format and the Ligertail widget, it turns out. Because pages can be created and posts as well, there’s a way around that.
