I’ve posted this info on the Beasts of Brewdom website, because we Beasts all loved MIlly, MIldred Singleton or @mildewpea, depending on how you knew her.
I came up with an idea, and it seems to have kicked off a bit, so now I hope it can live up to everyone’s expectations.
This article will lay out what’s happening and how. It’s dynamic, so if I run into any issues, please try back here. And afterwards, we’ll tun it into something of a blog, so feel free to comment.
For those who don’t know me, my name is Robert Godden, I am also known as The Devotea.
As far at the Milly story goes, I’m nobody important. I knew her online; I considered her a friend. I hoped to join with others to share our memoris.
The on-line event will take 3 forms:
- Start using the #rememberingmilly hashtag on twitter to share your thoughts.
- Add them as a comment here
- I’ll start a google+ hangout and post the details on my twitter account @the_devotea
It kicks off at 8am in my home timezone, Adelaide Australia. I’d recommend using timeanddate.com ‘s meeting planner if you need help figuring that out. It’s a bit over one hour after this post goes live.
I hope you can all find a nice cuppa, your best china, a slice of cake and join in. I’ll also be bringing tissues, just in case, but I hope it’s just a great time to share stories and mark the passing of a true original.
ADDED NOTE: If you use Hootsuite or TWeetdeack etc, add #rememberingmilly as a saved search
