The sun is shining (some of the time), the blossom is on the trees and you're all hopefully full of the joys of Spring. It's amazing how light and flowers breed positivity in people. Doesn't it just suck though that it is still that tiny bit too cold to go outside and really ENJOY the Spring? (If you are reading from a temperate, gorgeously warm climate right now, then please don't tell me....) Maybe Blog Angels is just the kind of project you need to spread the loveliness in blog land - well at least until it's warm enough to properly leave the house...
Sign-up for June Blog Angels starts today. If you want to shower kindness on another blogger for one month without expecting any help in return then this is YOUR project. When you think about what you appreciate from your readers, you probably love nothing more than those wonderful people who stop by and comment often on your posts; respond to your emails with more than a few words; Pin your projects or feature your writing. If you were a Blog Angel you would perform some, if not all of these tasks for another blog, without them realising it is your project to brighten their day.
Maybe you want to build links with a new follower, deepen an existing relationship or just be more active in the community. Whatever the reason you might want to help, you are very welcome to join in (whatever your blog's size or experience level).
To be a Blog Angel you need to:
1) Find a blog you want to look after. You might browse the little 'supermarket' linky below for bloggers who have requested some help, but I would encourage you to think about engaging with one of your commenters or a new reader.
2) Be nice to the nominated blogger for a whole month, making a minimum of two comments on their posts per week. Remember not to tell them you are their Blog Angel.
3) Write a reveal post to be published on June 30th and linked up here at the big Craftbotic Blog Angel party.
I will confirm your Blog Angel choice by email right up to when sign-up closes on May 24th (earlier this month as I am on holiday!)
If you have signed up to BE a Blog Angel then you can also link your blog up below to advertise for help (if you want it). Please note this requirement has changed slightly. Anybody who links up for help, but is not signed up to BE a Blog Angel will be removed from the list. It really doesn't take much effort to help out another blogger and I like to think the purpose of this community is more about the giving, than the receiving anyhoo.
Any questions then please shoot me an email or check out the Blog Angels page for more information. If you joined in, I love you more than a little bit. :p
