PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT:  Due to the success of the November Kos Katalogue blogathon in fully extolling the virtues of our own online, small business shopping resource, I'd like to suggest a change to the December blogathon idea.  Instead of three days of scheduled diaries as before, lets let the shop owners and delighted shoppers write diaries about the wonderful wares, a few diaries a week, from the beginning of the month through until its too late to ship for Xmas.  What say you?  I can put a suggested schedule in the queue of the Kos Katalogue group so that people can sign up on their own -- the virtue of being scheduled being that the diaries can be promptly promoted by email.

I'd like to remind everyone that it is not too late to custom order something original for a loved one from any number of shops.  We, ourselves, have been busy making table runners, place mats, and candle pads in holiday fabrics by special order.  I hope other shops are having similar inquiries!

The diaries from November are all listed in JekyllnHyde's beautiful template below -- as is the Mothership diary which contains the master index to all the Kos Katalogue stores.  Be sure to hotlist the Mothership so as to have this great shopping resource at your fingertips.  Shop progressive, shop Kos Katalogue!

Kitchen Table Kibitzing is a community series for those who wish to share part of the evening around a virtual kitchen table with kossacks who are caring and supportive of one another. So bring your stories, jokes, photos, funny pics, music, and interesting videos, as well as links—including quotations—to diaries, news stories, and books that you think this community would appreciate.

Readers may notice that most who post diaries and comments in this series already know one another to some degree, but newcomers should not feel excluded. We welcome guests at our kitchen table, and hope to make some new friends as well.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
