Christmas Blogger Gift Swap


I'm back lovelies!

And what better way to get back into posting than to spread the word about a festive blogger gift swap that the lovely Viola over at A Piece of Viola has set up. If this sounds like something you would like to get involved in, then read on!
Everyone loves giving and receiving gifts at this time of year, and it's always nice to meet new faces from the blogging community. So what could be better than combining the two? Unlike a secret Santa, Viola's gift swap allows you to virtually meet another blogger (potentially one you are not already aware of) in order to pick their gift. 
'I'm not made of money?!' I hear you cry.. But being able to communicate with your swap partner beforehand means you don't need to spend a massive amount if you don't want to - once paired up with the blogger you can both discuss and agree on a limit or theme (or even go homemade). 
Personally though, I think the best thing about this swap is that it is open to ALL bloggers - no matter how big or small your blog, and no matter what you blog about. Everyone can get involved!

So, if you still love the sound of this idea.. here's what you need to do:

1. Fill out the Google form and wait for a confirmation from Viola
2. Write a post about the swap within three days of receiving Viola's email in order to spread the word and get as many people involved as possible
3. Wait to receive your Gift Swap partner.. then get to know them, prepare their gifts and send them off!

Obviously, in order for this to work properly and to enable Viola to keep control of everything, there are some deadlines:

* You must fill out the submission form by the 28th November
* Everyone will find out their partner on December 1st
* December 17th will be the date by which everyone should have sent their gifts off

Of course after the swap, it would be rude not to blog about what you received and the blogger that you swapped with.. but as creating posts is something we all love doing that's not too much to ask right?

This will also allow Viola to see her idea come into fruition, and create awareness and interest for future swaps.

If you have any questions about this swap, you can find Viola on Twitter here. But I really hope you all sign up and get your posts out ASAP - the more people that sign up, the more chance we all have of discovering a new blog to read!

Happy gifting :)
