Secret Blogging Santa: a community event

Christmas will be upon us once again in just a few short weeks. It’s not only a great time of year for wrapping up warm, staying indoors, grabbing a tin of Quality Street and playing video games – it’s perfect for participating in a cosy community collaboration to get you in the festive mood.

Ellen from Livid Lightning is your Secret Blogging Santa and I’m her little helper elf, and we’ve got just what you need to get your bells jingling. Sign up for this event and you’ll be randomly assigned another blogger to whom you’ll have to ‘gift’ an item from a video game. This needs to be done in the form of a blog post explaining why you chose that object and what makes their site special – and it means someone in the community will be doing the same for you, so we can all share our blogging love and feel fuzzy inside.

Fancy joining in? Then here’s a quick overview of the guidelines:

  • Read the full details and get in touch with Ellen by Friday, 29 November 2019 using the contacts provided in her announcement
  • Get ready to receive your assignment on Sunday, 01 December 2019
  • Be sure not to spoil the surprise by revealing the name to anyone!
  • Write a blog post that includes a bio about your recipient and links to some of their posts you enjoyed reading
  • Give everyone a description of your fictional gift and the reasons you chose it for them
  • Schedule your post to be published at any time on Wednesday, 25 December 2019 and look out for your own gift on the day too
  • Check out the full gift list with links to each blog post on the Livid Lightning site in the new year

  • The Secret of Monkey Island, video game, Guybrush, lookout, pirate, Christmas, Santa

    Worried about signing up and then not being able to participate due to other festive commitments? Fear not, friends: each sign-up comes with our exclusive Livid Lightning Gift Insurance Coverage at no extra cost! If you’re unable to complete your blog post on time, simply contact Santa Ellen as soon as possible and your policy will kick in. With a little help from her elves, she’ll make sure Christmas happens by posting a gift for your assignment in your place so nobody has to miss out.

    The aim of this community collaboration is to lift us all and promote others blogs this Christmas. And who knows: you may even meet a new blogging buddy in the process. Let Ellen know if you’d like to join us for festive frolics next month – no need to write to the North Pole, just send her a message. We look forward to hearing from you!
