This is a re-blog from Eskimimi Knits (is re-blog a word? Like re-tweet? Am I even allowed to do this? Oh well, it's good info and you know where it's coming from). I'm in! Are you?
"*Fanfare!* Announcing the launch of Knitting and Crochet Blog Week 2011, the second annual event.
Knitting and Crochet Blog Week 2011 will run from 28th March to 3rd April 2011 in a week of fibre-arts related posts and events which will see many members of the knitting and crochet community worldwide blog daily together on the same subjects and topics.
Everyone is free, welcomed and encouraged to take part. Last year we had close to 200 bloggers simultaneously blogging on the same seven subjects throughout the week – this year let’s do all we can to make it bigger and better than last year.
There are no strict rules to blogging along – nobody will come after yu if you miss a few days out or put your posts up a few days late – the whole idea is to encourage creativity in fibre arts blogs and to help motivate everyone to keep on blogging to their best.
As last year I have laid out seven daily topics plus one ‘wild card’ topic for bloggers to use as a substitute for any day which they do not fancy the subject for. I have again ‘spoilered’ the list of topics so that any bloggers who wish to test their blogging skills by writing posts on the day they are to be published with no preparation can do so without accidentally seeing the subject before the day. If people want to get started on preparation before hand, though, the subjects are now ready to view – simply click on the date title and the topic and explanation shall open up to view.
Note: I think blogging along on the day is fun and a challenge to some people and an absolute nightmare for others, do whichever you fancy. However, I suggest that most people take a look at Day 5 as it proposes something a little bit different and I hope will push bloggers to get more creative. As such it might take a little more preparation than other posts.
So… are you interested? Then please see this page for all additional details: Knitting and Crochet Blog Week 2011
If you have any questions or queries, please leave a comment on this post or the page linked to and I will contact you with information and also publish theanswer to any queries in an updated FAQ this time next week along with further details about the tagging system.
Please do help to promote Knitting and Crochet Blog Week if you can, as the more people that take part the better it will be. Let’s try and get as many bloggers, knitters and crocheters from as many countries around the globe blogging at once as we can. Fell free to use any of the graphics to promote the event on your own blog or around the web. Happy blogging!"
