Try this out and make yourself into a zombie.
So, we did a zombie walk earlier in the year, but it was my intention to do one to help launch the October busy season for us zombie lovers.
Here's what it is:
Bloggers who participate will put up a post on Friday September 30th that has to do with zombies. Last year, I did videos showing how to do zombie makeup. You can film a zombie walk. You can write a fictional zombie piece, do a zombie giveaway or zombie poem. You can review zombie books or movies. Get creative. Have a blast! If you want to make zombie crafts and advertise them for sale, go for it. Just do something ZOMBIE!
Participants can post the above pic on their blogs to advertise ahead of time. It was designed by the most talented artist in the blog world, Jeremy (I own some of his horror art). They can use any social media or means they want to publicize the event. The goal here is to lots of traffic to zombie-loving sites.
A few days before the event, I will send each participant a list of those in the event and their blog addresses. They will add this list of participants and their links to the bottom of their post. When folks are done reading your post, they can click on another blog and go there, hence the readers are on a blogger zombie walk through blogs...
This is how you join in:
I put up a button on my blog that advertises the event and date. If you want your blog to join us, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will want to know if you're in on this by September 26th.
Don't worry: I will be reminding everyone about this and my email address will be listed below the button that will go on my blog, so you can always join in any time before September 26th. The last zombie walk was a blast and I expect this event to kick off the Halloween season in a huge way and give you lots of exposure to your awesome blogs!
**Don't forget, tonight is Lonely on a Friday Night. If you're bored, jump on here and we can chat**
Gotta 'get my zombie on' that day, eh?ReplyDelete
There will be such a creative display of zombie-themes, it will definitely make for a fun day/evening for blog readers.ReplyDelete
Sweeeet. I'm down will spread the word.ReplyDelete
Count me in! I may be eating the ice cream that I won from Haunt Jaunts hee hee...ReplyDelete
I knew you would be. I'm kind of hoping I get up the courage to do a zombie hip hop dance video...
Will it be like thriller or maybe the zombies will lose limbs hip hop dancing. I can picture a zombie taking off his head and spinning it on the floor for the new and improved headspin. I made a post linking people here and have the pic up. Good times good timesReplyDelete
I think I'd do myself up as a zombie and do my usual hip hop dance, but have some looseness to it and some of the fumbling qualities. We'll see if I'm brave enough to show my hip hop skills.
Hey Sis! I'll be there with bells on!ReplyDelete
Poor Shoes. You get better, dear. Can't wait to see what you do. You could even videotape your red shoes walking stumbling along and some groaning sounds and at some point, drop some intestines on the sidewalk and we realize you were an eat and run zombie.ReplyDelete
ahh, sounds like fun, count me in. I'll tweet the url for this post and will blog tomorrow about the eventReplyDelete
Thanks--very cool! We had a blast last time we did this.
Yahoo I can't wait. This is going to be fun.ReplyDelete
It's the funnest crazy thing in the world! Sis, you know on my bucket list I have being in a zombie walk. Perhaps we should see if one is going on before then and join it and film...ReplyDelete
You should try to get http://zombieacres.com/the-story-so-far involved.ReplyDelete
I have always wanted to do a zombie walk!ReplyDelete
Personally, I would have appreciated a little more advance notice. Or maybe you could just text me - ;-0ReplyDelete
Har har, MM. A little reference to my dislike of cell phones, eh? I can imagine the orgasmaprose you can write about zombies.ReplyDelete
awwwwww yeah I am so ready for this!! :)ReplyDelete
Well, I recall I participated last year but I'll be damned if I can find it in my archives. When was the 2010 walk?ReplyDelete
Oh, this zombiefication is cool! :DReplyDelete
MM. It was earlier this year when the Halloween folks were all sadly gone, I do believe.ReplyDelete
Oh, this is such a cool idea! When I first read 'Zombie Walk', I assumed it was a literal walk, or in other words: "Damn, I can't be involved because I'm on the other side of the earth!" But now I realize that it's a virtual walk... well I'm doing a little zombie happy dance!ReplyDelete
I'll have to get my braaaaaains working and think of an appropriate post!
Yup. It's for all of us who want to partake with our blogging friends and this is so much more fun because you never know what folks will do!
This is making me think of your post on childhood. You're still the little kid coming up with all the cool, fun games!!!ReplyDelete
Haha. Yeah. But, I keep making fun friends who'll go along with any zany redheaded ideas "Lu-cy!"ReplyDelete
IM TOTALLY IN WHOOP WHOOP!!!!! :DReplyDelete
only if i can be king, king of the zombies...ReplyDelete
i am so in for the walk, and i am glad you like the design... i see it in my head and then a trance... then wake up and there it is...
