So you want to be a guest blogger? *winks*



You are unique

Hello kindred spirits! Since a lot of you expressed how much you enjoyed the guest posts, tutorials and challenges, I thought that there might be some of you out there wondering
 how I "choose" guest bloggers to feature on my blog...*winks*

What am I looking for in a guest blogger? 

1. Someone with a unique style.

I'm particularly drawn to people with styles radically different from my own. Whether you are new to the crafting world or a veteran, I believe everyone has something of value to share with others.


2. Someone with an online presence.

Someone who maintains a blog with regular creative project posts and actively engages in the craft blogging community [through commenting and playing online challenges].

3. Someone who follows my blog and leaves comments.


The rationale for this is simple. If you already know who I am and at least like my work, the possibility of you accepting my invitation is high... *winks* Like most people, rejection is hard for me...*LOL*

So far the acceptance rate is 100%! :)

My Modus Operandi

If you regularly comment on my blog, you know that I do return visits. That's when I start checking out your work. If I don't already follow your blog, I will follow your blog before sending you an email invitation to be a guest on my blog. So if you see my face on your Followers widget, you just might be getting an email from me! *winks*

A final note

Seriously though, I never expected this Guest Blogger feature to run this long [18th months !]. It is actually a lot of work to plan, coordinate and put together a guest post. I'm grateful to each and every one of my guests who have taken time out of their busy schedule to partake in my little feature. And thanks to my regular challenge players too. You make the effort worthwhile.

Okay, this was supposed to be an informational post and it's getting a little sappy...*LOL*

Supplies: Echo Park Paper, wrinkle ribbon, bottle cap, glossy accents, Gauche Alchemy embellishments, baker's twine, Cosmo Cricket stickers.

P/s: Don't forget about my guest Kirsty's crepe paper challenge! It ends on Friday!
