Parent Hacks admin: Talk Amongst Yourselves

In addition to the many wonderful hacks I receive every day, I also get a fair amount of "hack requests," or appeals to the collective wisdom here at Parent Hacks. At the moment, my blog-only setup can't accommodate reader posts, so I'd like to try out an occasional open thread which I'll call Talk Amongst Yourselves. I'll post a reader question and everyone can chime in using the post comments.

As many of you already know, I'm the bottleneck in this scenario; I already have a backlog of hacks I'm editing and scheduling each day. But if you're game, so am I!

Let's give this a try — send in your requests, and I'll post the ones I think best fit with the Parent Hacks vibe.

    What system are you using?

    WordPress could do it easily if you want to create a separate blog for everyone to use like

    I love it! What I really want is to have all these great folks live in my neighborhood so I can call out the window to them and send my kids out to play with theirs!

    Dan! We should talk (we can take this offline in fact). Right now I’m on Typepad but am seriously considering a move to WordPress or Moveable Type so I can add just these sorts of features.

    Jill, Stu, everyone else — so glad this sounds like a good idea. Should be fun.
