The End of Year Predictions Group Writing Project is actually the second group writing project organized by the Finance Blog Network (FBN). However, it’s only the first one that was announced here. Why?
The FBN’s first group writing project was a closed or private one. Only members of the FBN were allowed to submit entries. Until now, my policy has been to only announce gwps where you could participate. After all, why would I want to frustrate you?
Whenever I discover a private gwp, I try to contact the creator and ask them to open it. There haven’t been many private gwps this year but Curt’s decision to open the FBN’s gwps is actually the second time that I’ve successfully convinced a blog network to open up its group writing projects to the blogosphere, the first time being with The Personal Finance Bloggers Network as of their Rich People Gone Broke Group Writing Project.
Perhaps if I announced the private gwps as well, more people would push their creators to open them. Either way, do you think I should promote closed projects here on Group Writing Projects?
