Calling for Volunteers

Wanna help us out? We're seeking minions to help do some of the behind the scenes grunt work with us. You'd get a special badge emailed to you so that no non-minion could have one. Perhaps you object to the word minion. Of course, we'd never call you that in public. It would be a secret between the team and you priceless minions. You'd get the prestigious title of “volunteer administrative assistants” in public.  (You'd be listed as an assistant on the A-Z Blog and that would probably bring you more traffic.)


Are you game? Here's how it works. Each team member wants their own number of volunteers, and will choose their volunteers in their own way. No, even though it sounds like it, it's not a popularity contest. 

What it really boils down to is what we've been trying to show bloggers about this challenge, and about blogging itself. It's a community and friend building activity.  For example, I have a lot of blogger buddies I know well and trust. I know they'd follow the guidelines, I know they'd follow through. I know who to pick if they volunteer.  Consider it a perk of being an active part of the blogging and A-Z community.


So! If you want to be a minion/volunteer/list checker, etc. Here's what you do. Leave a comment saying you volunteer.   We'll let you know by private email who we've picked, and then once all is settled, we'll put your names up as minions, I mean volunteers!


Questions? Stick 'em in your comments.

P.S We left out most of the details on purpose...but if you go check the comment chain at the A-Z Blog for today's (identical) post...you'll get a lot of your questions answered,

Hi Tina - I'd be happy to help - BUT!! .. I'm going to take a month off blogging and thought I'd be 'away' from 15th Feb - 18th March or thereabouts ... ie I have a Valentine's post and I might do Einstein's birthday.

I must get this place cleared and start my studies ... but within that if there's some chorish list checking that I can do in and around not blogging as such .. but helping - happy to do so .. and after the 18th I'll muck in ...

So if you can work around that - next year will be easier I hope - but must get onto studying ..

Cheers ... and I'm certain you need minions ... Hilary

I forgot to mention the minions post today, but with the IWSG in full swing, it'll get more attention on Friday.

I read the comment thread and I'd be up for checking the blogs on the list to make sure they are real blogs, and if they are properly listed as Adult Content. But I'd need to know what is meant by 'adult content'. Is it porn? Swearing? Scantily clad art/anime?

I would love to help out. I'm new and trying to build up myself in the blog eat blog world. Does it matter if I'm also going to be doing the challenge as well?

Found you through the A to Z challenge. I did read The Name Tab and it was very helpful. I love all of the nicknames. That is clever. I haven't delved into your blog, but I can gather you and at least some members of your family were in a pretty bad car accident back in 2007. I am very sorry. It sounds like you are still feeling the ripples. I hope that all of you find the path to healing and we get to read about it!!!

I left an I'll help comment over there, but only if I can be a mini-minion, lol :)
