The internets have spoken (well, some of them, anyway), and it looks like we’re gonna be having us a Bloggy Tour of Homes again this year. Before I put up the previous post I’d decided that if at least a hundred people wanted to participate then it was probably the thing to do. And since it’s almost Christmas, I think it makes sense to do a Christmas tour. Because that would be convenient.
So give me a couple of days to get a sidebar button done, and once it’s ready I’ll post the code here so that we can start to get the word out.
If you don’t know how these things work, it’s pretty simple. I’ll be the home base and will put up a Mr. Linky on the day of the tour. You’ll put up the pics of your home tour on your blog – and then you’ll come over here and link to your post on a Mr. Linky. It’s a big bloggy extravaganza.
The date is going to be Monday, December 17th – I’m guessing that most folks will have their houses decorated by then. I’ll outline some specific tour guidelines later. Whenever I figure out what those guidelines might be. Or if they’re even necessary. Or whatever.
Or maybe we’ll just abide by what we did last year:
I only ask a couple of things if you’re planning to participate in this humble little tour:
1) That you actually post pictures of your holiday decorations (and by all means, if you celebrate Hanukkah and not Christmas, please join us).
2) That you don’t mock the season. Or the Reason. Or the people who are participating. And I shouldn’t even have to say that because MY WORD WE’RE A BUNCH OF GROWN-UPS, PEOPLE!
As for what kind of pictures we’re going to post…well, I’m thinking pictures of your tree…pictures of a particular collection that you love…pictures of your favorite nativity scene…pictures of your front door…and pictures of your outside decorations if you’d like to share them.
So basically, you know, whatever.
And really, it’s only fair that you should provide some refreshments (I mean, you ARE inviting us over and all), so I think it would be great fun if everyone posted his or her favorite quick and easy holiday recipe along with the pictures.
Seems easy enough to me.
Deck the halls, y’all!
