Are You Ready?

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 complete the form. If you want a specific date let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you! Don't forget to grab your favourite button to use as well!

Today I thought I would address some of the more frequently asked questions over the years.

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.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.


Once again this year Kelly and I will be sharing holiday related quotes here on the blog from books I have read through this year.I couldn't come up with enough for the whole tour but we will have some songs and other things thrown in as well.

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.

Finally, for those of you who have been participating on the tour for more than 5 years, we have a special button for you to use. Feel free to grab this. I do have a spreadsheet to help me keep track of participation but I can't access it at the moment!
