Announcing the 2010 Blogger’s Santa Swap!!

November 14, 2010

December is fast approaching! Where has the past year gone? I don’t know about you, but I had a blast with this last Halloween Blog or Treat. It was the second one on The Mommy-Files and I think it would be fair to call it a success. There are a few things I learned from it as well that will hopefully make the Blogger’s Santa Swap even better!

Please leave a comment with your blog address and email (note: to prevent s-p-a-m-m-e-r-s, enter your email like this – themommyfiles (at) gmail (dot) com) if you are interested in participating. If you do not celebrate Christmas but are still interested in the swap or holiday goodies, you can make note of that on the survey. I am hoping to have a list compiled by November 25th and that should give a few weeks to purchase and send off goodies for the Santa Swap!

In the Santa Swap, each person will answer a survey regarding things they like about the holidays.  This will give teir Santa Buddy a better idea of what to fill their box with!  The maximum amount is $20 (not including shipping and handling). Plus, to prevent confusion, buddies will be assigned to one another. For example #1 will send a package to #2 and vice versa. There will be a date to which all packages must be mailed out.

Here is the button you can add on your site, showing you are a participant in the Santa Swap! :)

    Count me in. I love your swaps. I have received so many great things from wonderful ladies.


  14. The button didn’t work for me. No picture and sent to a dead link. I reprogrammed it on my page by cutting and pasting the picture file URL into a formula I got, and I just used the santa blog swap tag link as the site, so let me know what URL I should put in the redirect part of the formula.

    (Here’s the tutorial I used to make my buttons, if anyone else is wanting to know how!)

    Just checking in to see the survey/santa buddy’s have been emailed?? Wanting to make sure I didn’t miss an email.

    Thanks :)

  32. Is this still open to participants? What a GREAT idea!

    blogelina (at) gmail (dot) com

  33. I sent back my questionnaire right away but haven’t heard anything since. Maybe it got put into your junk folder, since I use hotmail? I don’t want to miss out on this again! (I missed your Blog or Treat email because it was in MY junk folder, until it was too late!)

  34. Are we going to do a linkup with the great stuff we received?
    If not, here’s my link!
    Thanks so much for hosting this! My first swap, and it was fantastic!
