Hi Megan,

Is it a lot of work to host the PC? I was thinking I might give it a go.

I won't know exactly how much work it will be until next week, but so far it seems very manageable - I'd recommend giving it a go - Richard is looking for new hosts at the moment.

Hint: if you just pick the best posts out of the submissions you get, it involves very little work. But then you are unlikely to end up with a decent selection. (We had 26 submissions, and ended up using 4 of those.)

The best way to do it is to go through lots and lots of blogs, skim the interesting looking posts from the last two weeks, and choose among those. That can be time consuming.

And if you want to comment on each post to boot, that can make for some work as well.
