10 days until Bloggers give serious love 🙂

10 days until Bloggers give serious love 🙂

Hello all you lovely people. Here follows some Oscar speech style blubbering followed by must do next steps for those offering help!

C4C is actually working!!

When I had the idea I first dismissed it as another silly and unrealistic pipe-dream. Then my goodly wife said I should try it, she felt it was worth a shot. And now here we are!

C4C has 10 confirmed volunteers, 3 offers waiting to accept their invites, 23 followers and 5 bloggers who have said they will help by watching the chats happen and joining in.

Thank you!

I owe so many thanks and I fear I’m bound to miss some. I hope they will understand, it’s been harder to keep track of it all than I imagined :) But I certainly want to thank everyone who is following C4C, and those who have re-blogged my posts about the project.

A special thanks goes to Rarasaur, who not only reblogged, but also put a whole post together specially to spread the word. That day C4C got a sudden stats leap, so it clearly worked! Thanks Rara!

Offering company for Christmas

Many people have also put this badge on their site from myhome page. It’s very weird to see my idea dotted all about like this – can’t quite believe it.

Still gushing nonsense over with there are some practical bits.

We will be off and running Dec 25th, so followers, editors and friends please give it one last push to let everyone we can know, then simply join us when you can :)

Don’t forget, only invited editors can start and moderate conversations. You might be able to join in, but please be sensitive to whether you’re interrupting or welcome to join. If you want to help as an editor, leave a comment on C4C or Ruleofstupid.

See you at Christmas :D

The rest is for volunteers.

Could those who have not accepted invites please do so (list below), or let me know if they can’t help out. No judgement here if you need to withdraw, xmas is busy and not everyone can spare time however much they may have wanted to.

Could volunteers fill in a time slot if they haven’t yet. I have tried to simplify the timesheet after some suggestions, but it’s going to be a bit difficult what with being a world-wide ‘event’. Hope you can bear with it!

I think we should have a dry run, so that we can see if it works and how it works best. Since we have enough volunteers, can I ask that you see who’s in your time-zone and experiment with chat to see how it goes? I suggest Sunday, just to give people a target? But you could invite any fellow blogger, log in to C4C and ask them to try acting as an invitee.

Finally – any suggestions? This is a totally new idea for me. I’ve only been blogging 3 months so I’m no expert at all. All suggestions welcome. I started it, but I’m not precious about ‘owning’ the idea or being the boss!

I think that’s it. A big thank you again to everyone who has helped turn a silly notion into an inspired idea – you are awesome (dude, I mean, totes respect!)
