Well, inspired by the Fabulous time I had last January - and the one before that, LOL ...

(which you can check out HERE to see how it all went).

January is my birthday month and also the start of the New Year (obviously). I'm looking forward to posting something every day in January: fiction, pictures, thoughts and opinions, jokes etc etc, to mark the occasion!



And I'd love you to JOIN ME!!

There's a list of free days on this post beneath the cut (always worryingly empty at the start), just comment to grab a day for yourself, to come and say hello. I'll keep a running Calendar of links for the month so people can nip back and forth to read and watch what we've produced.

Here's an updated version of the notes I posted before:

What the hell does 'joining you' mean?
Share whatever you like with us - what you're working on, fiction or art - what you're reading or watching - what's delighted you - what's annoyed or puzzled you - what's made your little heart beat faster - what or who you've been ogling.
And if I have spare days, I'll add some of my own stuff, or link to some (much better than mine) blogs.

Yeah, right. And what are the rules?
NONE!!! No pressure, no specific theme, no qualifications needed, no restrictions (apart from public decency and a civil tongue of course), no judgement, no minimum/maximum word count, just come and say hello in your way. Pimp your work, strut your stuff, offer a free read or a contest, pat yourself on the back. Stir up some constructive discussion, comment on things historical or topical, post a link, a pic, a line from a song, a snippet of fiction, a meme, an icon, a moan, a laugh.
(me and my lists...)

Um...Why should I?
It's an opportunity to have some fun, practice your LJ / promo skills, just have a chat with friends. And it'd be great to build something from my LJ Friends, just for the month.
And everyone who takes part will get entered in a draw for a free download of the WINTER WARMERS e-anthology, currently on sale with stories from me, Jo Myles, JL Merrow, Chrissy Munder and Lou Harper.

So how's this going to work?
Email your stuff to me a few days before your turn, text in Word format (or equivalent) and pictures as jpeg. Then I'll post it on to the journal on The Day. I can add pictures or whatever you'd like. Drop back during the day - and hopefully afterwards too, to catch up with any comments.



OK, now starts the panic when I worry that no one will dip a toe in the water.
Please don't hold back if you're even slightly tempted LOL.
Comment here (or my email clarelondon11@hotmail.com / clarelondon11@yahoo.co.uk) to choose your date, or if you have questions or just need me to turn the puppy eyes on you and beg :).

*haha* you got it! Don't worry, you can change it later if there's any problem.

And - spookily - I JUST replied to you to remind you I was posting the guest month ^_____^. Great minds cross in the post, or whatever :).

Thank you :)!

I confess that 2011 has raced past for me... But I know I'm getting near the Birthday Blog when the excellent Speak Its Name Advent Calendar launches :)

Pop me anywhere, just let me know when (bearing in mind I'm still writing the thing I promised E for the SiN advent thingy so may need reminding a week or so before ;-)

I popped you in on Tue 10, but that can always be tweaked if it's a problem nearer the time :)

May I have the 17th? For no other arbitrary reason than it's my niece's birthday, so that will help me remember about it.

Excellent strategy :). You're booked in.

Wait, wasn't it just your birthday last month?! O.O Seems like it was that recently at least...

Are you trying to say I look two years older, instead of one??!!! *g* Or that 2011 has slipped away like water through our fingers - which I agree with totally :). Can I tempt you to a day, or will you just be a (as always) delightful supporter?

I'll take the 2nd because I don't have to work!
clarelondon
Dec. 6th, 2011 09:31 pm (UTC)
Sweetie, the 2nd is taken, would you be ok with the 3rd?

I'll take the last day of the month again this year if that works for you.

Done! It'll be great to welcome you here :)

Could I have Sunday 22nd? As that will be the 23rd here (as I'm aprox 12 hours ahead) which is Wellington Anniversary day so nice and fitting in a way. Hoping my new release is out there too so I can share :)
clarelondon
Dec. 6th, 2011 09:26 pm (UTC)
Excellent, I hope so too. But feel free to tell us about it anyway :)

I could take the sixth, and talk about strange and not-so-strange locations in the UK.

I've been stalking you through maderr, and this looks like fun! ^__^ Could I have the 16th? That is, no one has taken it. Otherwise, I'd be happy with any day.

Welcome to the blog, great to see you! The 16th is yours :)

January is my birth month too, and if the 7th is still available, would it be all right if I had that?

Awww, we January babes are very cute! I've booked you in :)
