Blog Angels 2013 Round One! Sign-up today!

Blog Angels is back for 2013 and stream-lined to make it MUCH more manageable for me to run without the weekend of sending emails. The premise is still the same, you are signing up to HELP another blogger, in secret, by being a source of support and encouragement throughout the month.
CraftboticBlogAngel
There are many ways you can help another blogger; it does not have to be extravagant, mean you need millions of followers or even any skills as a blogger whatsoever. Find out some tips on easy ways to help people out on the Blog Angel's page and this post I wrote all about it.
 
With this project I have had to face some hard facts. Some people signed up and then did not complete the project leaving their blogger orphaned. Some were only interested in what they could get from their blogger, rather than what they could give and some people did not like who they were paired up with. My conclusion: that's life. These situations occur. If you think you might be one of these people, however, then please do not take part. It's a community of HELPERS.
 
If you sign-up and life happens, then that's o.k, and with the NEW system of doing things, there is no fallout if you have to stop because everything becomes that little bit overwhelming.
 
Listen carefully folks, because this is where the details are quite important.
 
There are TWO sign-ups this session. ONE if you want to be a Blog Angel(form) and ONE if you would like some help (linky-tool). If you want both, complete the form and the linky-tool sign-up.
 
Link up your blog to the linky party below if you would like some help from an angel.
If you sign up for some help IT IS NOT GUARANTEED. It will, however, be a great shopping mall for all the would be Blog Angels to choose someone to help out. I cannot make them pick you. Although, if you're not on there, your chances of selection are pretty slim!

Blog Angels. Once again you are nominating a blog to help rather than being matched by me. You must choose a blog to support for the month and have this information before you fill in the form. You can check out the linky above for people who want help, pick a random from your current followers, or even commenters....whatever you decide, just make sure you have a 1st and 2nd choice. I will allocate blogs on a first-come, first-served basis and let you know with a very brief email if you have your first or second choice.

By committing to this project you are agreeing to link-up a half way post on 15th February AND a reveal post on the 28th February and that you will help your blogger on a weekly basis. (The standard is two comments or deeds per week). If you complete both link-ups, you will be eligible for early sign-up for April Blog Angels.
 
To become a Blog Angel (the person GIVING support), then fill in the form. CLICK HERE.

Not sure of the details; want some more information before you sign-up? Then just drop me an email or comment below and I will be in touch with you. I am not exaggerating when I say that this project HAS changed people's experience of blogging. Whether it be finding someone to collaborate with, a new friend, a kindred spirit, or more blogging confidence, as with anything you get out of it what you put in. Come and join our community! You are very welcome.

Being a part of October Blog Angels was one of the best experiences of being a blogger! I loved both my angels as giver and receiver. Those girls are in my world forever!

I just found this post last night and I think it's so great! I put my name in the list for help. I started my blog 2 weeks ago and I've been looking up ways to reach other crafters and get people involved with my blog. This is a wonderful opportunity - thank you! I'd lve to be a Blog Angel soon

I would love some help. I just found out about this program today and would love to try to be apart of this program! I am a mother of 3 on my weight loss journey to a healthier me and family.
