OK, before you volunteer me I am moving house over the next few days so with Internet beyond iPhone...

Anyway, just wondering if anyone would like to pick up the task of organising a WoW Blogger Kris Kringle.

People sign up for it
Organizer randomly assigns bloggers a blog to guest post for
Guest posts get written & sent to the blog owner
Kris Kringle complete

possibly a lot of work, but sure to get blog exposure

anyway... I have been spouting on about this in Twitter and even commented on my own blog... So maybe someone is already doing something...

Whatever the case, I'm up for writing and hosting a Kris Kringle post (but as I say can't coordinate it)

Gnomer and Put!

Oh, that is a very, very cool idea!

It's a short deadline to work with if all the posts are expected to be done before Christmas. Getting the word out and signups would take about a week and a week from now is Christmas Eve.

Still, if no one has started anything yet, I can volunteer to coordinate, with school out I need stuff to keep me busy. Let me know if there's something already started, otherwise I'll start some fires tomorrow. (The deadline could be the New Years or something.)

I'd love to do this! I'm a bit busy with traveling and finishing off final exams before Christmas, but I could certainly at least find time to do a blog post.

Sign me up :)

I'd be interested! Would this be a white elephant sort of exchange, with noone knowing who would be the guest poster? How fun would that be?

I am more than happy to both organise and write a post. Drawing names out of a hat can't be that difficult, can it? ;-)

I'll close off people volunteering on the 21st December. That only gives us a few more days, hopefully that will net us a few participants.

At that point, I will organise the match ups. Each person will receive an email outlining who they are writing a post for, and what email address they have to send the post to. I'll do this Secret Santa style, so you won't know who is writing your post until you receive the post in your email.

While it would be nice for people to be able to have the posts written before Christmas, I know that for some this may not be possible. So, I'll establish two due dates:
- 1. Preferred date - posts written and emailed by 9am Christmas Eve at the latest. The 23rd would be better though.
- 2. Absolute due date - the 31st December. We don't want posts cropping up after the new year!

Good luck and have fun everyone!!!

Aw sod, I'd love to sign up but I can't know if I'm available for it until the 21st (that's icy roads permitting, no ice, I'll be away from internet more than likely) :<

I'm up for it too!

Perhaps I'm a bit out of the loop in terms of Kris Kringles... but is there any particular topic?

The joy of a Kris Kringle or Secret Santa is that it's usually a $ limited present, with no particular theme.

This leads to all sorts of novelty (rubbish) presents being exchanged...

Thus your imagination and time limy are the only true determinants

I won't set topics, so just have a go at writing something that you think fits the blog you end up writing for. Could be anything at all (eg - if you got my blog, anything to do with Warlocks, Aussies, Alliance, Humans.... whatever!)

If you get really stuck, I could always come up with an idea to help you along.

I am also guessing that people are going to infuse their posts with a little 'Christmassy' flavour ;-)

As possible examples look at the guest posts that I have already covered. See the Reindeer Droppings post on my blog for links.

Ahh thanks - Secret Santa is the name I understand...

I just didn't want to be the one odd one talking about gnomes with wings while everyone else was having serious discussions about class balance (that is normal turkey discussion isn't it?)

This sounds like an excellent idea. I know I'm (re)new to this whole blogging thing, but this sounds like a wicked good time.

I'm probably a couple of days late to this, but if you need another blog post, Saresa can add me up to the list!
