Yes folks, the rumors are true... the next round of Blogging by Mail has begun. (What, you missed the first one? Check out Nic's roundup. Now you're interested right? Of course you are! Then read on to sign up for this round!)
Sign ups are super easy, just drop me an email (thesamanthafilesATgmailDOTcom) with the following info and I'll add you to the list! Please put 'Blogging by Mail 2' in the subject line.
Blog (not required at all, but if you have one, let me know)
Mailing address (anyone can participate, I'll try to pair up by country to save on shipping. If you don't mind an international partner, feel free to let me know that too!)
Any allergies or dislikes
Blogging by Mail is a food swap, though you don't have to be a chef to sign up. Everyone will get a swap partner, then you'll make up a package for them. What should you put in the package? Well, some homemade goodies are a great start. You can make something yourself (hazelnut brownies, peanut butter cookies, cranberry orange biscotti, rum pound cake, green tea marshmallows, toffee, etc), or you can buy something from a local bakery (the best chocolate chip cookies ever, raspberry macaroons, chocolate mint meringues, etc.). The rest of the package contents is up to you. Swappers in the last round sent:
- candy (regional specialties or favorite treats)
- spice mixes/special salts
- mix cd's
- jams and jellies
- salami and chicken floss!
Keep in mind that your package will be en route for a few days, so please don't ship anything too perishable. And remember to have fun! Swaps are a great way to brighten someone's day, and who doesn't love a box of yummy treats!
SIGN UPS ARE NOW CLOSED.
Your package should be mailed out by September 30th. Please email me the permalink for your blog entry about the package you received (On or around September 30th), or if you don't have a blog, just write up an email and you can even send me a few pictures. I will post a roundup of BBM2 in the first few weeks of October.
Drop me an email if you have any questions. I'm looking forward to another great swap!
