The Round Table

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 19 - 2010

So… last week, I was toying with the idea of a “Round Table” for beauty-related questions and answers and how it would be great for me on a selfish level to have somewhere that I could “shout out” the questions I receive via email when quite frankly I’m not always sure I have the best (or at least… “the only”) answers.

I was originally going to introduce a ‘series’ where one post a week would include the questions that needed answering… but I figured it would be quite limiting for readers who may want to chime in with a question of their own from time to time.

Mr. L suggested that I embed a forum into the site and when I realised that it didn’t have to be some mega-big affair, I decided that I would be game.

The premise is simple (ish).  I haven’t added a forum for chats and stuff… think of it simply as a deposit box for beauty-related queries that we can dip in and out of as and when relevant.

An example of how it might work would be…

If someone comes across one of my old posts on Google and has a question about a stockist for O.P.I polishes in the UK (for example) – rather than post on an old topic and only receive my reply… they can post it on The Round Table (or I can transfer it there myself) and they might benefit from 3 or 4 great suggestions from you fabulous guys.

Does that make sense?  Is it crapola?  You can tell me… I always appreciate your honesty even if it sometimes me sulk for ages a short while.

Anyway, if you wanna check it out or get the ball rolling and leave a question of your own (I’ll probably be ON every question until the novelty wears off ;)) then you can find a link to The Round Table in the top right or click here.
