What kind of person would I be if I lamented the lack of community events and then didn’t join in with one that was even in-line with something I’d said? “Heck, I even remember a secret admirer programme a few years back for Valentine’s Day!”

United We Game is hosting Voluntine’s Week. And this is my post spreading the word and announcing my participation. My biggest problem? I’m entirely rubbish at thinking of guest blog topics. And I’m concerned that I’ll end up guest posting for somebody that everybody is guest posting for so it could be a bit fiddly but hey ho, let’s give it a go. Tips welcome. xD

Here are the bits and bobs:

  • What: A set-aside week where bloggers and fans volunteer articles to be published as Guest Posts on their favorite blogs

  • When: February 17th, 2014 to February 21st, 2014

  • Where: #Voluntines on Twitter

In February, I wanted to try something a little different. Largely in the spirit of Valentine’s Day (minus the romance), I wanted a holiday to celebrate other bloggers we each admire. I am calling it Voluntine’s Week.

Here’s how it works: Pick your favorite blog(s). You know, the ones that have the articles you wish you had written or the subjects you wish your blog covered. Imagine yourself writing an article that would fit on that blog, perhaps choose one of their regular features or emulate their unique style of writing. And then write them a post!

Voluntine’s Week will run the week after Valentine’s Day, from February 17th through the 21st. Posts or tweets referring to it will use #Voluntines. If you are definitely considering participating, I suggest you re-post this on your own blog so others know you will be happy to accept their guest blogs.

This could be a lot of fun! 🙂
