The Countdown to Halloween is One Month Away!


My apologies for getting to everyone so late in the season, but sometimes work and real life get in the way of the fun stuff. I'm putting together my list of this year's participants, so if you are planning to participate this year, please email me with a link to your blog(s) website and the names you would like them listed as. Many of you have emailed me already. If you aren't sure if you have, please feel free to contact me again.

Participation is open to anyone who wishes to join in. To get a better sense of what's involved here, please read the "Become a Cryptkeeper" bit on the upper left hand side of this page as well as this. I also recommend taking a look at any of the sites listed under "Cryptkeepers" to the right and visiting their October archives.

If anyone from last year is reading this and won't be participating, please let me know as well. We'll be sad not to have you, but understand that this is a big time commitment and that all of us may not have it. Remember also, there's no pressure to post on a daily basis. This is meant to be fun. Trying to maintain that schedule as all of us have learned can be aggravating, draining, and suck the fun out of this. We don't want that.

Shawn will be putting up some new Countdown buttons that you can add to your blog so that everyone knows you'll be participating this year, and I'll be back with the complete list of this year's cryptkeepers at the end of September.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please ask.

I'm not going to have a whole lot Halloween related, but much of October will be dedicated to monsters on my blog. Whole lot of guest posts brewing.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone else is cooking up this year.

I'll be having a Halloween theme for my guess-the-character-I'm-drawing contests at http://www.alpha-sketch.com. I draw using only the letters of the alphabet. Each weekday I post five letters until the complete drawing is revealed on Friday. The first person to correctly guess what Halloween-related character I'm drawing wins their choice of Alpha-Sketch card mailed to their door for free. The first contest starts on Monday, Oct. 3. Hope you like it!

Countess VonRauber said...

Hello :) I would like to be added to the list. I think my earlier comment had been overlooked.
