Pre-Holiday Swap!

At my house Christmas is both the best and worst time of the year. I enjoy the music and the food and the family get-togethers but it can also be a stressful time of year too - so to spread some holiday cheer and possibly even check off an item or two on that pesky holiday to-do list I'm inviting you to participate in the pre-holiday swap hosted by The Bartering Blogger and friends.

What can you swap? Pretty much anything! Clothes, books, movies, decorations. You can also swap things like photo editing, ad space, blog design, hosting a giveaway or a guest post on your blog. Your creativity is the only limit! If you've got an online shop and are looking to get some more exposure this is a great place to swap items for ad space or items you are good at making for items you're not so good at making. You can swap things you don't need or want anymore for something that you do! For more details on what can and can not be swapped and answers to any questions you might have about the swap please click here for my "details" post.

How do you post your swap? Option 1: Just snap a photo with your smart phone of the thing you want to swap and tweet it mentioning @BarteringBloggr and I'll both re-tweet it and add your tweet to the swap linky. It's that quick and easy!

Option 2: Write a post on your blog with a photo of the item(s) you'd like to swap and link it up here with the linky I'll be posting December1. The link-up code that is on this blog will automatically re-post your link on the other hosts blogs (so you won't need to link-up on multiple sites) If you write a blog post for this swap please include the button/grab badge from this post so that you can easily recognize each other's posts for this swap. I'd recommend you list a few things you have to swap and also several things you'd be interested in swapping for. Be as specific as possible!

What next? Feel free to contact the other swappers to arrange your trade, make an offer come to an agreement, swap addresses then carefully package your little piece of happiness and ship it off to your sweet new friend ASAP!

The linky will close on Tuesday December 6 at 11pm EST

Everyone who participates in the swap will receive a $10 gift card to Easy Canvas Prints and one random participant will receive a gift card to Bath & Body Works
