We created a site that linked to all these lovely blogs and video blogs, which essentially acted as a giant birthday card to the bard. Last year you contributed to this project with blog post that we thought was rather fantastic!With flattery like that how could I say no? In any case I enjoyed writing it immensely.
...We hope you will be involved again this year. You can publish your post anytime between April 22th - April 28th - with the 23rd being ideal, as that is, of course, the Bard's actual birthday.
They didn't know I run NYCPlaywrights - they were pretty happy when I offered to post info about their project on the web site.
This year I plan to write about the consolation of writing sonnets in the Shakespearean mode. I'll publish that April 23.
