WILL YOU BE MY VALENTINE?!
The Christmas Card Swap went so well and I had a few people email me that they were sorry they had missed it, so I decided “why not do a Valentines swap?” This will be the inaugural Valentine’s Card Swap!! This will be setup like the Christmas Card Swap so, Depending on how many people sign up, I will divide you all into groups of about 5 or more people. You will send a Valentine’s card to all the people in your group, and will be receiving cards from the people in your group. Let’s say you are put in a group with X,Y,Z… You will send cards to X, Y, and Z and will receive a card from X, Y, and Z. Make sense?!
Your cards can be store bought or handmade and you can feel free to add a little something to the card like your favorite running quote, running advice, candy, a sticker, a note of encouragement or a funny note, or you can just send the card… Whatever you want to do is PERFECT! Just don’t be sending pairs of running shoes, an Ipod, or a free entry to Boston (unless you’re sending it to me) We want to keep this cheap so everyone can join and doesn’t feel bad for just sending a card! :)
After everyone is put into their groups I will be sending out an email including your group members ONLY with their blog links (so you can get to know them if you don’t already) and addresses so that there’s still a bit of privacy and everyone’s addresses aren’t out there floating around on the internet somewhere! Safety people!! :D The groups will be picked by Random.org so we keep things mixed up!
I will be adding people to a list at the bottom of this page as they sign up… So, if you sign up and for some reason, do not see your name on the list after a couple days… just shoot me an email and we’ll get it taken care of!
If you can think of anything that I may have left out, let me know! Let’s get this PARTY STARTED!!! You are welcome to invite your friends! All are welcome! :) Feel free to put the logo on your blog and link it back to this page as an invite to other bloggers! AND YES, international bloggers are welcome to join as well as those without blogs… Dailymilers or Twitterers can join too!!! ;)
