Calling All Bloggers!
Our Blogger Applications are now closed! Please visit the Holiday Challenges Page on how you can participate.
The SL Christmas Expo welcomes all bloggers to participate and share the holiday magic. The holiday season is short and we want to ensure word of this festive event is spread as far as possible to all of Second Life.
Your Holiday Expo blogging should embrace the festive feelings and magical inspirations of the holiday season. There are no predetermined blogger assignments. Instead we offer you the Holiday Challenges. Find what you feel inspires, delights, and captivates you about the SL Christmas Expo and choose one, or all, of the Holiday Challenges.
The Holiday Challenges for 2016 are: A Special Holiday Gift, Why I Relay, 12 Days Of Holiday Blogging, 12 Days of Holiday Photos.
The challenges are open for anyone to do: you do not have to be an official SL Christmas Expo blogger. You don’t even have to be a blogger at all if you want to do these Holiday Challenges. There is even a Flickr pool you can share the challenges in as well.
To be listed as an Expo Blogger on our site, we do look at things such as, does the blogger have ties with Relay For Life? Do they have a passion about Relay and want to write about it? Have they blogged for the SL Christmas Expo before? Are they able to create an experience with their words and pictures? Do their blogs include good pictures with good descriptive writing?
We also love to come across that truly inspired hidden gem. We may consider bloggers who are just starting out if, after reviewing your blog, we just know you will do the Christmas Expo proud.
Once the sims are open, all bloggers and press are welcome to write about and take / create pictures on anything they wish at the expo. We encourage all bloggers to go beyond the merchants and blog about our SL Christmas Expo Special Events, raffles, gotya’s, activities. To blog /report every day if they like. To take part in our Holiday Challenges.
If you would like to cover the event in the capacity of a blogger, magazine or other news outlet, please COMPLETE THE FORM BELOW so you may have early access on our special Press day to be held November 30.
**Note: completion of the application does not mean acceptance. We will contact you after reviewing your application**.
