Call For Contact Info From Blogs Participating in the Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day Blogfest

You know how the OSR runs things: A wing, a prayer, improvise and use duct tape. Hey, don't knock it, it's worked well for me up to now.

That being said, a little organization may just go a long way.

If you are planning to participate in the Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day Blogfest on April 17th, your blog should be on the below list. Awesome! If it isn't, add it to the comments.

Now, if you are on the list, Frog God Games would like a way to contact you. They are planning to run some promotions regarding the S&W Appreciation Day and would like to be able get that info to you in a timely fashion. I'll also need it to award the "gifts" to random and not so random bloggers. Oh, and we may have a graphic for your blog if you want to use it.

So, this is what I need:

An email sent to tenkarsDOTtavernATgmailDOTcom

A subject heading stating something like "S&W Appreciation Day"

your blog's name and link in the body of the email

your first name - 'cause we got it like that ;)

let me know if you don't what me to forward your info to The Frogs, in which case I'll act as a filter back and forth. The option is there for the few who might want it.

Thanks in advance to everyone, bloggers, readers, G+ers. You all seriously rock!
