Your pictures needed for this year's advent calendar...

(viewed 1802 times)

Well whether we like it or not Christmas is well on its way...

It has become something of a moblog tradition to celebrate with an advent calendar.

As far as possible we like to use new contributors, so if you haven't contributed in the previous two years and would like to play your part in this year's moblog Advent, please email me

If you don't I may well email you - I have a list!

Thanks to Twiglet for the image :)

I did whatever the first one was but I can always throw another one on if you need me.

17th Nov 2009, 03:33

Viv says:


At the moment I have a list and I have just started taking the direct approach and getting in touch with folk.

No rejections yet. 3 down 21 to go :)

paintist says:

Ok yes.....I don't think I have had a go :-) can I put up a small video?

17th Nov 2009, 11:28

jc1000000 says:

Paintist - a video would be brilliant but would it be possible to add a picture too? The reason i ask is the advent calendar widget wont display video thumbnails :(

17th Nov 2009, 11:30

Viv says:

gone up to 4 :)
now 6...
up to 8...
got to 10...11,
12 - halfway

Is anyone going to surprise me and volunteer without being asked I wonder. Only one I have spoken to was planning to :)

17th Nov 2009, 11:33

jc1000000 says:

BTW if you want to place the advent calendar widget in your own moblog sidebars just click here and copy & paste the HTML embed code into your edit sidebar box.

17th Nov 2009, 11:35

Viv says:

OK up to 14 now so if you fancy providing a picture do get in touch :)

and counting 15...

18th Nov 2009, 11:58

Helen says:

I could probably do it this year... can I have a later date for volunteering earlyish? I guess if you have half the people you need my place would fall around the 12th/13th.

(edit done :) Viv)

18th Nov 2009, 20:18

Helen says:

Oh, 15 people... guess that puts me to the 10th.

18th Nov 2009, 20:19

Twiglet says:

OK Viv, I'm shamed by all the good will. Put me on the reserve list. I asked BS but he's the Grinch.... : (

18th Nov 2009, 20:31

Viv says:

Put you down for the 16th Helen -

that makes 19...

only 5 dates left...

2nd, 6th, 8th, 9th and 11th

waiting for replies from a few people but as they say when they are gone they are gone :)

19th Nov 2009, 20:06

Viv says:

If anyone has a really nice pic of - maybe a homemade or special advent calendar, to put on site while we are waiting, I think that would be good - please let me know.

Essitam says:

*Hands up*

20th Nov 2009, 12:30

Viv says:

Right I have five still left if no-one else responds by the Tuesday the 24th then I will gladly accept these offers from previous contributors - Taniwha, Caine, Bronxelf, Twiglet, & Essitam - sorted one way or another!

Thanks guys

Twiglet says:

Come on lovely mobloggers! Put your names down otherwise I've got to do one. And I warn you, I'll do a sickly sentimental one featuring yet another photo of my daughter......

Or maybe I'll do a lovely religious one..

: )

Viv says:
