Advent 2012…Reflections and Resolutions

Posted on: November 4, 2012


So, the nights are drawing in, Hallowe’en has been and gone, Guy Fawkes Night is upon us and advent calendars are in the shops. That’s right…advent calendars!

I’m ridiculously excited to confirm that I will again be running a daily advent calendar of guest posts on my blog during December, as long as there are enough people who are willing to contribute. If you would like to have a flavour of how it works, you can have a quick peek at the 2011 series here.

There aren’t very many rules to this at all, but the basics are as follows –

  • It’s truly crowd-sourced and open to anyone who wants to be a part of it. You don’t need to be an experienced blogger at all – some of the best posts from last year were from people who had never written a blog post before and contributors ranged from friends to family members, to virtual strangers
  • Don’t wait for me to approach you to ask you to write a post, as I won’t be asking anyone directly – please just leave a comment below, contact me via Twitter (@AlisonChisnell) or drop me an email if you’d like to take part
  • The theme for this year is 2012: Reflections and Resolutions – interpret it as you wish!
  • I post the guest blogs daily during December pretty much in the order that they are received…the first few days are usually a bit nerve-wracking, relying on faith, trust and pixie dust that the posts will flow in…so the sooner you can get them to me, the better for my blood pressure 😉

So, that’s it! I’m delighted to have received quite a lot of expressions of interest already via Twitter from people who are keen to take part and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that all of these and many more materialise, so that we can jointly create a fantastic series.

Are you up for it? I do hope so. Go on…make my day!
