Blog Required

We are really enjoying the steady stream of comments! You are reading each other's comments too, I hope? I do have my own comments on "high tea" (which isn't so lofty after all), but that's a post for another day. Right now, I'm still trying to ease back into my daily routine, and catch up on my sleep.

I did want to take a moment to note that we are requiring swap participants to have a blog. It just makes it easier for each pal to connect with another and get a true feel for his/her pal! There are no posting requirements though, so if you don't currently have a blog, we hope you'll take a moment - and that's really all it takes! - to create one where you can post your questionnaire and contest answers, if nothing else!

Let me be clear - we are *NOT* doing this to be exclusionary. We want everyone who wants to participate to be able to sign up, but we also want to ensure that every swapper has the best experience possible.

Thanks again for all of the comments and interest!

For anyone who doesn't already have a blog - let me tell you it's EXTREMELY helpful for your secret partner. If they can read a few of your posts, and get a feel for who you are, and what you like/dislike... it will really make your package that much better!

You don't have to spill your life story, or reveal shocking secrets... just posting about what you did one day, things that you liked, or if you went shopping and saw something adorable in a great colour... those hints are very valuable to the secret partner!
