Today I have a fun treat for you all :) I wanted to do something fun to kick off 2012 in blog land and thought… “What could be better than a virtual blogging party?!”
And, what kind of party would it be if there were not gifts involved?
Each blogger who wants to participate, will be randomly paired up with another blogger to do a gift exchange with! All packages must be shipped out so they can arrive to the other blogger's destination BEFORE January 31.
On January 31, 2012 we will all post about the other blogger we received a package from, and about the care package they sent us!
So where does the party part come in? Well you can all then link up the post you wrote onto all three of the hosts’ blogs, for one giant link up party!
The care package can be full of whatever you want to give! But we suggest keeping it simple, and would like to put a $10-$15 price cap on these packages. Just make it something small and fun, that you know would make another person’s day. Who doesn’t love getting something in the mail?
Try to get to know the other blogger, and send them something that will put a smile on their face. Maybe something to help them accomplish one of their New Year’s resolutions, or something only another blogger would appreciate? Be creative! If you are having trouble thinking of something, you can always e-mail one of us for some suggestions.
So how will this go down?
Any blogger who wants to participate will e-mail me their name and blog address.
Each blogger will be randomly paired up with another blogger, and will receive that blogger's e-mail and web address.
It is then up to those bloggers to give each other their shipping address, so they can send each other a little care package! (try and get to know your new blogging friends!)
Make sure to ship out your care packages by an appropriate date, so that the other person will get their package BEFORE January 31, 2012.
Then make sure to write up a post about the person you met, and what they sent you! Don’t forget to link it up to ALL THREE of the blog Hosts, to spread the love and meet tons of new bloggers!
Hope we can all meet some new people in the blog world, spread smiles with some gift giving, and have a great New Year of blogging in 2012!
Thanks Alycia for putting this together! Also, I placed a SWAP GRAB BUTTON on my sidebar for you that wish to participate. Spread the word and have a good time with this!!
