Last Saturday and Sunday we held what I called a “Weekend Blogger Party” to give four writers thinking about joining the rotation the opportunity to write a couple of posts and test the waters.

I am pleased to announce that two of them, David Atkins and D.R. Tucker, will be joining the crew the weekend of May 31-June 1. I’m pretty sure we’ll be seeing more from the other two participants in the “party,” Lisa Solod and Chad Stanton, as well. Chad’s already done a Ten Miles Square post.

But because Weekend Bloggers may come and go over time, while the hungry maw of weekend readership is never sated, we’ll maintain our special email address for inquiries by those interested in this sort of gig: Please send writing (and especially blogging) samples if you can.

In the mean time, enjoy our new Weekend Bloggers, along with the continued stylings of Martin Longman.
