blog swap number two
I was happy to be prompted by a few blogging friends recently to get the ball rolling with the summer swap. once it was clear that the first one was a great success (aside from a couple people who dropped the ball and never sent their swap stuff out and a handful of folks who just couldn't quite make blogging regularly happen, which is totally okay except that it makes it hard for your partner to get to 'know' you) I put it out there that I'd be hosting another one come summertime.
well. it is summertime, folks.
so..... who's in? if you participated in the last swap (and are not one of the people who just forgot to follow through) you know the drill already and are most cordially invited to participate again. just email me or leave a comment letting me know you are interested and I'll confirm with you personally once I've added you to the list. for those of you who missed out on the last one, please follow the links below to get some more information about the way I manage the swap and what kinds of things we will be swapping. this swap is geared towards *generally utilitarian and/or edible items*. the items must be homemade/handmade/homegrown by YOU. widely appealing and useful things encouraged. there will be the opportunity to address personal allergies/preferences before I assign swap partners. also, you will send an item or items to one person (who will not know your identity until you send the package) and you will receive an item or items from another person (whose identity you will not know until they send you your goodies). so- if this sounds like something that may tickle your fancy, check out the links below (really, even if you think this sums it up alright, please check them out because there's a bit more info there) and let me know via email (which can be found up above under the contact bar) or a comment in this post. when letting me know you'd like to participate, PLEASE supply me with both your email and physical addresses. last time we had nearly 70 people participate, and I am considering cutting it off at a bit less this go around, maybe 40 or 50. but we'll see. also- I am sorry but due to shipping costs and such I am keeping it stateside again, so US residents only, with the exception of any Canadians who would like to swap with fellow Canadians. I will organize that as well, we'll just need an even number of you northern folks to sign up to make it work.
