As you can see, we've gone with a pretty stock standard blogger template to get this show on the road. But really, we need at least one button and a banner for the blog, don't you think?
Since neither Bells or I have any idea how to make a button or banner, we thought we'd start the fun early by having a little competition - because we know you'll all have nothing to do while you are waiting for 1 October to roll around.
Submit your design(s) for a banner and button to firstname.lastname@example.org
Ideally the banner will have "Southern Summer of Socks 07/08" on it, and the button should match or tie in to the banner theme, just to make it easier to identify!
You can enter more than once!
Entries should be submitted by Wednesday 26 September. Depending on the number of entries, we will probably have some type of vote between 26 and 30 September, so we can have the banner and button ready for our 1 October start date.
There will be a prize awarded to the winner (above and beyond the glory of winning!). No doubt the prize will involve yarn and/or chocolate!
