Blog Angels Sign Up for October is now Full!

I can't believe it. In 8 short hours 100 WHOLE real people signed up to join in the October round of Blog Angels. If you missed your chance this time around, don't worry the sign up for the Christmas special edition will happen on 15th November.  If you would like to be a 'reserve' angel for October, to account for the minority of participants who let their blogger down then please shoot me an email. All reserve bloggers will be given access to the December round 2 days earlier than the normal sign up! All you have to be is prepared to step up to the plate in October if someone has to drop out of the scheme. Email me here.
Thank you to everyone who made this round's sign-up such a massive success!
You might have heard the name 'Blog Angels' popping up all over your social media over the last few months and wondered, what ARE they going on about?
Blog Angels is run by here at Craftbotic. Every two months 100 bloggers get the opportunity to help each other out, build friendships and community in the Blogosphere.
The principle is easy. By signing up to be a Blog Angel you are promising to help another blogger for a whole month. The least you need to do is comment twice a week on their blog, but the possibilities to do more is endless.
In the first two rounds of Blog Angels we had people commenting, guest-posting, giving social media shout outs, new blog design features and warm words of encouragement. Some people swapped addresses and sent little packages. The choices are endless.
So what's the catch? Well, it's all done in secret. For this round, things are changing slightly. Here are all of the details:
1. Sign up opens today!
2. The form is slightly more detailed to help with the matching process. It still takes less than 5 minutes to complete though.
3. The project will start on 1st October and will be secret for the first two weeks. This will allow you to get to know your blogger, build up a relationship and start to act to help them. You would need to as a minimum comment twice a week on their blog.
4. After two weeks you link up a 'reveal' post at Craftbotic on 15th October.
5. You can then communicate with your blogger and give them more specific help, build friendships and develop your role. This is the newest part of the project and came out of a long conversation with the angel regulars.
6. On the 31st October you write a 'reflection' post reviewing your experience of Blog Angels and what you achieved with your Blog Angel.
It's pretty simple. These small steps will help you to be part of growing community of bloggers who care.
On a serious note, there is always a 'drop off' of Blog Angels. Those folk who get busy and disappear. Apart from being incredibly uncool, it is completely unnecessary. Please make sure you have time to help out in October BEFORE signing up. If life gets crazy you just need to email and let Rosie know. Orphaned bloggers can then be reassigned. In Blog Angels the only thing you are guaranteed is the opportunity to help some-one else.
And what an amazing opportunity that is! Still interested? Then fill in the from right now! And tell your bloggy friends. The more the merrier!
