Would you like to blog Gothmas by Gaslight? We’d love that.
Before you get all excited though, there’s stuff you should know. From our FAQ:
For actual bloggers, we’ll make OPTIONAL blogger packs available to bloggers who wish to hop on board to blog the event. Here’s what optional means, guys- it’s optional for the merchants to provide them, and it’s optional for the bloggers to blog them. I’m not the blogger police, and I’m definitely not the merchant police, either. I find this all works much more smoothly when everyone has a healthy dose of respect for everyone else, so let’s do that.
In short, I’m not the blogger police. No one is required to put out review copies for bloggers and no bloggers are required to blog everything they get review copies OF. Everyone is required to not act like a jackass(except Uffda, because he IS a jackass.). It’s pretty simple.
This morning, Dare and I had a meeting to discuss the policy regarding bloggers for World Goth Fair.
We decided jointly that we would prefer to include anyone who would like to participate with us, and not have a limited list of official slots.
That being said, if you would still like to join us, please tell us. We will send along a blogger’s welcome package, and if you would like I am happy to invite you to the World Goth Fair group.
We think anyone who wants to help out should be able to, and there should be no limits on how many slots there should be for bloggers, as they don’t require booth space or some other finite resource.
We apologize that it took us time to decide that, and if you’d be willing, we’d like very much to have you participate.
While we hope that lots and lots of people blog the things they see, experience and buy at World Goth Fair, we do have four official bloggers for this event, and I’d like to take the time not only to introduce them, but thank them so much for taking the time out to help us promote the fair and the charity.
First up, we have Shadowed Darkfury- most of you know her, as she owns Dark Water Designs and runs SL Freebie Hunters with her partner, Thanos. Shadowed has been my friend for a long time, and she’s a terrific person with a keen eye. She really is excited for the fair, and has her store in it as well.
Sonya Marmurek ,who runs the fantastic blog Astalianda. Her photos are absolutely superb, and I am quite sure she will do people’s creations justice. (also, she is made of awesome and win. And bunnies.)
Ely Hynes blogs from Sium . Ely has a great talent for combining looks and styles to create new and exciting visual expressions. She’s great at this, and we’ll be seeing lots of terrific combinations from her. I think Ely is just an all around great person, and I asked her if she would cover the WGF because I knew she’d so such a wonderful job.
Rudhmellowen Laguna blogs for the extremely popular Seraphim, and is their go-to girl for dark looks. She is a great supporter of the Sophie Lancaster Foundation and is very excited that there is finally a fair for the gothfolk in SL.
I want to thank them all for joining us for the fair, and give them a warm welcome. They’re all extremely nice people and I am honored that they are so enthusiastic about this project.
I can’t wait to see what they come up with!
