APPLICATIONS OPEN OCTOBER 1, 2017
Calling All Bloggers!
Lots of Blogging Opportunities Await You At The SL Christmas Expo!
How Can I Blog For The SL Christmas Expo as an Official Blogger?
The SL Christmas Expo organizes it’s official bloggers in early October. Applications will be open to apply on October 1 and close October 14. An announcement will be posted on the front page and under the Blogger Tab as to when it is open. Official bloggers will receive items from participating SL Christmas Expo merchants and will follow the review policy.
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 and a passion to want to write about it? Have they blogged for the SL Christmas Expo before and, if so,did they follow the blogger review policy, did they link the Expo on their site? (yes we check). 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.
How can I participate if I am not on Official SL Christmas Expo blogger?
If you are not an official SL Christmas Expo blogger, you are still able to participate and share the holiday magic. We welcome and encourage all bloggers to complete our Holiday Blogger Challenges. 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. You can find more information on the Holiday Blogger Challenges tab.
We also open the SL Christmas Expo sims for an early preview to press/media and the following blogger groups: [SL] Blogger Support, SL Blogger Network,
We are not associated with these blogger groups and do not offer membership to those groups. Please contact the group on how to become a member. We do not have review copies available on the sims or for these groups. Members should NOT contact designers or SL Christmas Expo merchants and ask for review copies. We will remove your sim access if we find this has happened. All items are available for purchase in the Relay For Life vendors before the event is opened to the public.
Once the sims are open to the public, all bloggers and press, who did not take part in the early preview, 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 an official blogger, please COMPLETE THE OFFICIAL BLOGGER APPLICATION which will be here on October 1
*Note: completion of the application does not mean acceptance. We will contact you after reviewing your application**.
