Iron Blogger Freiburg

A blog entry from Antischokke made me aware of a great idea to breathe new life into the blogs of local writers. It’s called Iron Blogger, a group effort that requires the participants to write at least one blog post per week. Otherwise, they’ll have to chip in a “fine”. Every so often, the fines will be converted to drinks collectively.

I like this idea and invite all bloggers in Freiburg to join Iron Blogger Freiburg! We’ll use Mako’s rules. The fine will be 4€ per missed post (payable in person or via PayPal), and I’ll organize a meetup when the beer pool reaches 40€. The slacker limit is 20€ (reach it and you’re out unless you pay the balance).

If you’d like to join the group, let me know. You’ll reach me via the comments below, via email or Twitter.

I’m looking forward to get this thing off the ground. There’s some writing to do and I just ordered myself a new keyboard!

UPDATE: Woohoo! It’s taken only a few hours to get an enthusiastic group together! I’ve created a separate page on this website for us.
