It's all pretty simple...swapping a new or gently used piece of jewelry with someone else in the blogosphere. Why do it? Because it's a fun way to connect with other bloggers all while getting a surprise in the mail. Who doesn't love mailbox goodies, especially when it is jewelry!
If you are interested in participating, simply send an e-mail to me with the following:
Send to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Subject: Bauble Swap
Include: First and last name, Shipping Address, and URLYou will then get paired up with someone else who wants to join in on the fun.
Once I have paired you with another blogger, I will provide you with your Bauble Buddy's name, shipping information and their blog address. That way, you can go to their blog, check out their style, learn more about them and make a new friend!
In the next week or so (the sooner the better), send a necklace, pair of earrings or bracelet(s) you think they would wear. Please DO NOT send rings since we don't know sizes. If you send earrings, please PINKY PROMISE that they are NEW and not gently used. Your buddy will do the same. Please be considerate on what you send. Make sure it's something you would be excited to receive. Don't be a jerk and send something from a gumball machine. Put some thought into it because, I promise you, your Bauble Buddy WILL blog about it!! If you are sending something new; the price limit should be $25 or less.
After both buddies receive their item, blog about what you sent and received! I’ll post a place to link-up on this same page once we have some interest so you can see what other people are sharing.
This swap will run through July 15, 2012. Don't wait until the end to sign-up!
What if I join and don’t get anything in return?
I will send you something myself!
Can bloggers from Canada participate or is this just for the U.S.?
For Canadians to participate, we need someone else in Canada to swap with (shipping across Customs tends to get hairy). If you are Canadian, encourage other bloggers to play along. I would be happy to set up a swap!
You must be an ACTIVE blogger (i.e. the last time you blogged wasn’t last year). It's only fair, people. You don't need a gazillion followers or blog every day. Just be somewhat active. Okay? Deal.
If you plan to participate, please grab this button and add to a blog post, so we can spread the bauble word. It would be most appreciated if you added it to your page as soon as you decide to join. So, ideally you will mention the swap TWICE on your blog. I don't think that is asking too much. Do you?
Don't forget to follow me!
If you have any other questions, feel free to shoot me an email.
Cheers to swapping some baubles! I hope you all play along!
