I have an idea which I think might be lots of fun and raise money for charity too.
As bloggers, we reveal a lot on our blogs – our thoughts, our feelings, our joys, our sorrows and our passions. Could we show a little more?
When I wrote my “About Me” page I put up a photograph of me naked. It led to lots of amusement and fun comments from other bloggers, friends and family members.
I am an ideas person and a little spark of inspiration flashed through my brain. Wouldn’t it be fun for some mum bloggers to get together to do a fundraising calendar for charity and to really bare all? I have to admit that the rather lucious Liz over on the Me and My Shadow blog was key to making me thing the idea had nice legs.
So I am looking for some parent bloggers who would like to pose for a cheeky calendar on behalf of a good cause. I imagine it could be a really empowering experience and it would be fabulous if we could get bloggers from across the UK. Diverse ages and sizes would be cool too. A real celebration of women and bloggers and we might have to sneak in the odd fella too. Who knows?
At the moment, I am debating whether to go for a calendar like the famous Women’s Institute one or whether to go with a more burlesque theme. There’a an awful lot of security available from a fan or a feather boa.
So are you a parent blogger who would like to take on a personal challenge and support a good cause at the same time?
I am also interested in hearing from photographers who would offer their services free of charge. I am sure we could make sure they were promoted via the calendar and the blogs taking part too.
I do have some ideas on how this could work practically in terms of printing and selling too but thought before revealing any firm plans, I should check whether people like the idea and would like to get involved.
Please get in touch either by leaving a comment or emailing me on firstname.lastname@example.org with thoughts, feelings, questions, concerns and ideas.
Have I gone mad? Or am I onto something wonderful?
