So I’ve received a few questions this past week and I figured I’d go ahead and answer them all here.
Where do we blog?
You can blog on any blogging site that you choose. If you prefer tumblr, by all means go for it. You do not have to create a new blog just for this event. If you already have one, feel free to use it!
What can’t we blog about?
Here’s the good news… you can blog about anything you want. There are no set boundaries on what you can and can’t discuss. The only requirement is it must be about True Blood or Southern Vampire Mysteries. So if you want to do 30 ways Alan Ball screwed up True Blood and post one way every night, feel free.
How long must each post be?
There is no requirement of how long the post has to be. Just as long as you do actually blog something related to the show or book series.
Do we have to do all 30 nights?
In order to qualify for a prize, you must complete all 30 nights.
When does it begin? When does it end?
Your first post should be posted sometime on May 11 and your final posting should be posted no later than 11:59 pm PCT on June 9.
When will the prizes be awarded?
The drawings for the prizes will happen on June 10 before the premiere of Season 5 of True Blood. You will receive an e-mail during the first week of posting on how the drawings will be handled.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns, feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment on the site.
Things seem to be gettin’ tense with Luna and Sam…
Seems like a great thing to blog about! So register today and get ready to take a bite out of your True Blood Withdrawal.
Do you believe your stamina is up to snuff?
We certainly hope so!
The time has come for Truebies everywhere to band together and fight the effects of True Blood withdrawal!
As the newest season of True Blood approaches, teasers and promos aren’t enough to keep Truebies from cravin’ more and we’ve got the solution for you!
Starting April 20, Truebies everywhere are invited to register to join in our 2012 True Blood 30 Night Fang-a-Thon!
On May 11, Truebies will be invited to start to take a bite out of their favorite show, True Blood. The concept is simple enough. For 30 nights, each participant will be expected to blog about True Blood or the book series, Southern Vampire Mysteries, the inspiration for the hit series.
What exactly do you blog about?
This is the best part about this challenge, the choice is yours!
We will provide dozens of possible topics that you may choose to blog about, or you can come up with your own daily themes!
What are the rules?
The rules are simple enough.
- All participants must be registered by 11:59 P.M. (Pacific Coast Time) on May 11, 2012. All required information must be provided at time of registration or the participant must contact @DarlingSookie in order to correct any errors prior to the registration deadline.
- All participants are free to post as often as they would like. However, in order to qualify for one of the prizes, the participant must complete at least one post, per day and the theme must be True Blood-related (this also includes any content in regards to the Southern Vampire Mysteries series).
- Any post that is deemed unrelated to the acceptable material, will be flagged by the coordinator of the event and the blogger will be contacted and given a 12 hour window to fix the material in order to still qualify for entry into the drawings for the prizes.
How do I join in?
Click on the tab marked register and fill out the required information. All you need is a valid e-mail, a Twitter account and a blog of some kind (Blogger, WordPress, Tumblr, Posterous… etc.).
All prizes have been donated and only participants that meet the requirements will qualify to be entered into the drawings for each prize. A participant may only win one prize. If for any reason, the participant declines their prize or fails to claim their prize within 14 days of the drawing, another drawing with the remaining participants will be held.
