GABE for Dummies

As we're nearing the start of our first annual Global Animal Blogging Event, I have the feeling I need to review the rules. There aren't many, so bare with me.
{You're getting very sleepy, you're relaxing your tails, your ears are perking up, and you are getting more focused. Here we go!}

Spread the word!!! It'll make all the difference for all of us participating. 

***I have broken us down into two groups. Group A, the Active participants and Group P, the Passive participants. Both groups get to have fun. Here's how.

GROUP A: Active

Before March 31st: place the badge  on your sidebar linking to the GABE page (you can find the badge, code and instructions inside the GABE page--second tab up top, and that's how you help spread the word)

On or after March 31st, post about GABE and use the badge/logo in that post. Tell us why you're participating and what you're willing to give away. Tell us anything you like. You can have one or more prizes and it's all up to you. Here's a link to one of my posts when I participated in a similar event (start reading after the huge "Thank You") You only post ONCE for our event.
TIP: After your GABE post, life in blogland continues as usual. You keep posting the way you desire, once a day, once a week, Wordless Wednesday... Remember, the participants will only have your GABE post link. After that it's their choice if they wan to explore around more.

Email me the link to that specific post. That's the link I'm going to use for our new furiends to find you. My email: twinkietinydogATaolDOTcom

Visit the GABE page and Start clicking on the participant list of links to find new critters and their giveaways. Leave a comment under each GABE post you visit if you want to be eligible to win.

On April 18th, pick your winner or winners, depending on what you're decided. You can use any unbiased method to pick your winner. I prefer using RANDOM but that's just me. You now have to A. Notify the winner(s) by Monday, April 19th and then mail away your giveaway. That's it!

GROUP P: Passive

Starting April 1st, follow Step 5. That's that!

Any questions? I'll closely read your comments, as usual, and then, depending on how clear you all are I'll either reply individually or do a Q&A type of post tomorrow.

Let's make this a memorable event!
