You've got mail

For a while now, I've been trying to come up with something fun to bring all of us blogger friends together.

One day, I checked the mail, and I had NOTHING. I was honestly a little sad about it. It's not that I was expecting anything, and thankfully there weren't any bills in there. But I realized just how excited I get when I have personal mail.
So, it came to me. What if I started a little Blogger Mail Swap?

Once a month you can receive a package from a fellow blogger, and you can send a package, too!
Here are the guidelines:

1. You have to send a package to get a package.
2. You can put anything that you want in the package, but please let the value be less than $10.
3. You don't have to buy anything for this. You can totally make things if you want!
4. Send package by the posted date. [I will send this in an email]
5. You won't know who you are getting a package from until it arrives. That being said, please don't tell the person you are sending a package to.
6. Please read the blog of the person who you're sending the package to. That's kind of the whole point of this, right? Show each other love.
7. For now, this BMS is limited to U.S. only [sorry, ya'll]
8. Have fun with it! I mean, who doesn't LOVE to get mail?!

If you are interested in participating, please send me an email to jaksart[at!]
In the email, please include the following:

First&Last Name
Address [so we can send the packages!]
link to your blog
Favorite Colors
Favorite kind of music
Anything else interesting about yourself

Sign up for OCTOBER'S Blogger Mail Swap by September 26th.

That Saturday, I will go through all the emails, and begin pairing bloggers.
I will send everyone who signed up an email with the info listed above of the blogger they are to send a package to that month. Each month you can choose to participate or opt out. If you want to participate, just make sure to sign up by the deadline. If you don't sign up, no worries, you can participate next month. Spread the word! The more the merrier!

I sent you an email AND I pimped you on my blog. :)

I'm in, and I'm also pretty sure I would be one of few (if the only) guy doing this so that should be interesting.
