Hello friends, happy…Tuesday? Wait…Am I supposed to be on hiatus there, or what am I really doing here? Okay. You all know I can’t get enough of blogging, and today, and before going on holidays and being on a kind of more REAL hiatus… I want TO ASK you something. So let’s get to it!
If you remember correctly, a few weeks ago I shared my idea to connect with other book bloggers, and bloggers all around the world, with Souvenirs From Across The World. If you need to refresh your memory a bit, well, it’s right here! This feature is kind of my baby, and I am going to be up and honest about everything happening towards it. To show you what it’s like and just to get your opinion afterwards. Because this is YOUR adventure, and I want YOU to have a wonderful time (hopefully?).
✏️ Let’s have a recap… -because I have the memory of a goldfish
The meaning of this feature was, and still is, to get to know each other better and get to know each other’s countries, cities and cultures. You could do that by talking about your hometown, clichés, through pictures or local books you loved… If I am being honest -I am a pessimistic, for real, so… I kind of expected two people to participate to this. And I was THRILLED that a total of 18 BLOGGERS participated in this little feature, from Brazil to Austria, EVERYWHERE. Check out their posts HERE!
With Souvenirs From Across The World, you could also SEND real souvenirs, little trinkets and even BOOKS to other book bloggers as well, for those willing to participate. I got a total of 12 PEOPLE willing to participate to that, and I am eagely waiting to see what kind of gifts they sent. If you want to follow this, I have a special hashtag for it on twitter, #SFATW !
🎁 Let’s talk about… my special part in SFATW ?!
Alright guys, I have a confession to make. I am NOT one of these 12 people sending a souvenir. Not because I am completely selfish, but because I have something special planned for my part of this little operation. If you remember correctly, I am going on holidays in less than a week….
And I am coming back with something for ONE OF YOU GUYS. This is my part of Souvenirs From Across The World. I really hope you are excited about it, because this late August, one of you guys will get a special package from…ENGLAND! There will be souvenirs, a personalized postcard and… well there will be little bookish surprises just for you…Read until the end to know where to enter! And YES this is INTERNATIONAL.
❓ WAIT! Before leaving, I need you!
This is the part where I want to turn to YOU guys. As you can guess, this kind of feature takes time to put together, and I want to know if I shall go on with it or not. So, without further ado….
If you participated to the #SFATW feature, did you enjoy it? Are there anything you’d want to see / do differently?
If you’re reading this but did not participate, is this something you would like to take part in? 💬
How would you feel about this being a regular feature? I was thinking about making this once a month maybe, with themed blog posts everytime (I have to thank Reg for the idea!). Do you think this is something you’d like to do?
> What I mean here, is for the blog post to take place more often, once a month. The whole idea of sending souvenirs would NOT take place every month, because that’s WAY too expensive. That event of sending souvenirs would happen maybe twice or three times a year.
And now, since you are probably waiting for it….here is the link for the special SFATW giveaway!!
