Just a quick note on spreading the word...

Hello again to all of you creepoholic constituents out there. I thought I'd take a second to address some of the shocking options for those of you who would like to spread the good word about the Countdown to Halloween. Again, the idea behind this site is to simply act as a resource for the growing number of blogs participating in the seasonal fun of writing about all the frightening facets of this wicked holiday.

If you'd like to feature a button/badge on your site...

Banner #1 (200 pixels wide)



Copy and paste the following html onto your site:



Banner #2 (200 pixels wide)



Copy and paste the following html onto your site:



Pierre Fournier of the wonderful Frankensteinia also created a third, more Halloween-centric banner on a black background for anyone who'd like to use it.

Banner #3 (200 pixels wide)



Copy and paste the following html onto your site:



Or if you'd like a slightly smaller version for three column template blogs: Banner #3 (170 pixels wide)



Copy and paste the following html onto your site:



Also you can follow the Countdown to Halloween on Twitter via the halloween_blogs account.

As John mentioned in the last post, the list is being compiled and will appear here on October 1st. I can't wait for the festivities to begin!

Oh, man, those are cool.

I may have to make one myself, though. My theme this year is gonna be "Frankenstein". But I like the first one, I may just use it.

I've got my own version that I did a ways back, before it got named "Countdown to Halloween", since I've been blogging it as "Halloween Countdown" -- I posted it as well as a video I made a while back (before this blog was created) on the Random Acts of Geekery at http://waffyjon.blogspot.com/2009/09/its-coming.html today... I'll have to make an update of that video with this blog's URL as the contact point!

This is the first I've heard of this page somehow! When I get home I will get the link on my blog. I'm delighted with this idea, this central hub/link list; thank you guys for coming up with it!

Shawn Robare said...

Joe, Belle, Jamie, Mandra, Dane, Eegah & Tobonga - Great! Hopefully this whole deal will help get a lot more eyes on all the great content that is coming down the pike from everyone. I can't wait, only 9 more days...

Paxton - Can't wait to read what you've got in store for this year's Awesome-tober-Fest. I love the big green one too, so double awesome.

Jon - The video is great, and linking back here or posting the list on your site, whatever works. It's all about getting the word out...

Shawn Robare said...

Hey Patrick, blogger is having an issue I think. It can't detect a blog feed at your site. I'll see what I can do about it.
