It's that time of year again! In the midst of Christmas rush, family gatherings and good food, comes my personal favorite blogging event of the year: The Blog Azeroth Secret Santa!
This is the second edition of the annual event conceived by Gnomeaggedon
. Last year had a great participation and I expect this year to be just as, if not more, exciting. Here's how it works:
1- You send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org before or on Wednesday December 22
with your name (the one you want to use for the event, not your real name), a link to your blog and, if you want to use a different one, your email address.
2- Shortly after, you'll receive an invitation from Elfster
to participate in the Blog Azeroth Secret Santa. I'm using a gift exchange site because I totally want in on the fun. Make sure the invitation doesn't end up in your spam folder.
3- On December 23rd, you'll receive another email from Elfster with the name of the blogger you'll be Secret Santa-ing.
4- You write a guest post for that blogger on the topic of your choice, a topic you'll think they'll appreciate. Feel free to browse their blog to get a feel for their style and interests.
5- Email your post to the blogger in question. We're aiming for Christmas, but since we're all busy people, any time between Christmas and New Years is fine.
