It's nearly time to start our Virtual Advent Tour for this year and I for one am very excited at the prospect of getting underway.
We are very pleased with the turnout so far, but it isn't too late to sign up. Just go to the sign up post and add your URL to the Mr Linky. If you want a specific date let us know and we will do our best to accomodate you!
We have had a few questions that we wanted to try and answer if we could.
We have tried to make the tour as inclusive as we can, so you don't need to be celebrating Christmas in order to participate. We would love to hear from people who aren't celebrating Christmas but have some other celebration and about what you do for those celebrate!
One of the hardest things about doing this is to try and coordinate these things relates to timezones. With Kelly being in Canada and Marg in Australia, we are at opposite ends of the same date all the time. In the past, I have found it easiest to post my posts when I get home from work in the evening and Kelly posts in her morning and we aren't too far apart. To try and make it easier for everyone concerned we have set the blog time to GMT so you can use that as your guide if you are a bit concerned about when to post.
Each day we will post that day's schedule of stops, and where possible we will link to the actual post so make sure you add us to your feed reader, or to your Twitter feed or stop by each day to see where we are visiting. You can see the schedule as it currently stands here, but please be aware that as more people join in the schedule will also change a little.
We encourage people to comment on the blogs that are participating, and hopefully you will discover some new blogs to read along the way. I certainly seem to find new blogs all the time during the tour.
Most of all we hope that everyone has a fun time participating as both hosts and visitors, and Kelly and I thank you all for your continued support of the tour.
