Oh, Won’t You Be My (Blog) Valentine?

It’s that time of year again.

After everything that has been going on in the blogosphere, both good and bad, I think it’s the perfect time to unwrap my second annual Be My (Blog) Valentine. Last year was such a success and while it didn’t go as smoothly as I would have liked (on my end), I think it’s worth a second shot!

What is Be My (Blog) Valentine?

Well, it’s sort of like Secret Santa. I randomly match up everyone participating with another blogger, you won’t know who has you, and your valentine won’t know you have them. You can send your valentine whatever you would like–a gift card, baked goods, a little carepackage (I got nail polish, lip balm and window stickers from my blog valentine, Maxie!)…whatever you feel your valentine would like. I’d advise taking the time, if you don’t already know your valentine, to look around their blog. You can always find inspiration there.

This is also a great way to discover new blogs so I hope you will join in some internet loving! Please feel free to use the badge above on your own blog (just make sure you link back to this post!), as well as pass this on to anyone you know who might be interested. This is open to EVERYONE!

Some basics….

To enter you must leave a comment on this post with your email address and blog link (if you have a blog, it’s not necessary! Just make sure you give me your email, some information on what you like, your interests, etc so i can pass that on to your valentine.), starting today and any time up until 11pmย  January 19th. Also, if you have any food allergies, please let me know so that in case someone decides to bake you something, they know what to avoid!

I am moving at the end of this month and want to have everything taken care of by the time I leave. If you have any questions you can always email me at ashalahblogs@gmail.com.

Oh won’t you be my (blog) valentine?
