I'm a Blog Angel

A few months ago I saw several of the blogs I follow post about their experiences as a blog angel.  I was intrigued with the idea, and checked out the host blogs (Craftbotic and Dreamy Meadow) for details.  I was bummed that the sign-ups were closed.  So, I was ecstatic when I saw that they were making this a regular event and I decided to join in the fun for August. The premise is fairly simple: find ways to support your assigned blogger over the course of the month, but stay anonymous through the process.


I can't reveal who I've been helping yet, but I can say that it has been a great experience to get to know a new blogger and offer her support.  At first I was a little nervous since I thought it would be obvious that I'm the Blog Angel when I just show up at the beginning of August and start commenting on posts.  However, I'm finding that there are other commenters that say they just found the blog, so I think my secret identity is safe.  All in all, it hasn't been very difficult and really doesn't add much time to my daily blog reading habit.  I feel like I am helping my blogger to feel supported and encouraged. And, I've made a new blog friend.  I'm hoping to find other ways to support her through the remaining half of the month, but that might give away my identity, so I'll save those details for the wrap-up post in a couple weeks.

If this sounds like something you might be interested in, keep your eyes open for the next round of sign-ups starting September 15.  Make a difference to another blogger for the month of October.

Hello fellow blog angel! I think the par that is the most fun (and also the trickiest) is the secrecy!) Happy Wednesday! :)

At the beginning, I thought that commenting right at the beginning of August would be sooo obvious - but apparently it wasn't! Great that it's a good experience for you, too! xo Anja

Absolutely brilliant! I love that you are taking part and enjoying yourself. With all of this secret 'behind the scenes' goodness we'll all have to craft our own costumes soon!

Can't wait to have you sign up for October.

It's sooo hard staying anonymous.. you want to comment and share and feature.. but keeping that superhero cape on the inside sure is tough!
Thanks for stopping by!
