Singles Day Details

I think you have heard by now but over the last few years of doing this - ELEVEN couples are engaged or married.  Most those now have children! 


That blows my mind a little.  I wrote a post a little while ago updating where they are now - you might be interested to read: http://www.kellyskornerblog.com/2015/10/show-us-your-singles-where-are-they-now.html

So "tell your friends, tell you momma, tell your brother, tell all the single people you know (ESPECIALLY MEN - we need MEN for this to work!)" - to come and check this out on January 22.

(Here is an example of the first singles day from 5 years ago if you want to check out how it works:
So here are the things to know:  PLEASE READ!!!!!!!!!!

1.  If you have a single friend, a single co-worker, a single family member or YOURSELF - write a blog post about them (or you) and include lots of pictures and a good TRUE description.  When you link up - you will put their first name, age and state they live in.  

2.  I will get this question a lot - "I don't have a blog - how can I participate?"  It is EXTREMELY easy to set up a blog (nothing fancy).  So even if you don't blog - you could totally set up a blog with one post just for the purpose of participating.  Then you can delete the whole thing. OR You can visit the posts and if you see one you are interested in - leave a comment with your info and tell a little about yourself.  Hopefully you will hear something back. 

3. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING: God knows and has a plan for how you will meet your mate. Maybe it's here but more than likely it's not.  If you post and no one leaves any comments - the last thing I want is for you to feel rejected. YOU ARE NOT!!! It will just be clear that your future spouse does not read my blog. ha! And if you comment on someone and don't hear back - DO NOT FEEL REJECTED.  That is just not the person for you.  I can't stand for anyone to feel rejected and I know how singleness can attack your self esteem (or maybe it was just me).  That is not what is happening here.  

4.  This is also important - I have absolutely NO control over how many guys vs girls there are or what ages people are or where they live.  I get emails complaining about ages or whatever and y'all - I have NO control!!!! I'm just praying for the best and that something amazing comes out of it. 

5. If you meet, date, get engaged and get married - you are required to invite me. Bridesmaid is optional.  (I'm totally kidding about this but I really hope you will let me know if anything happens.  It encourages me and others to keep going with this!)

6.  We get a LOT more single girls than guys posting which TOTALLY makes sense BUT remember - I doubt I have many single guys reading my blog unless someone directs them to check out the Singles day.  So just don't be upset if you don't get a lot of response.  The thing we need most is for people to share their single brothers/co-workers, BIL's, dad's, friends here.  So if you know ANY single GOOD guys - please share them with us!!! 


7. We tried Instagram last time but I don't think that went over too well so we will just keep it to a blog link up.  If you are really interested, go to blogger.com and set up a dummy blog JUST for this purpose. You can delete it later.  It's super easy! It doesn't have to be a fancy blog - you just need one post describing yourself or the single person in your life. 

8. Questions? Leave a comment or email me (kellyskornerblog@gmail.com). I"m the worst person in the world at email but I will try to help. 

{And PLEASE READ:  Please please use good judgement if you participate. I feel like this is a safe place but our world is crazy so obviously use caution and maybe get references before meeting someone. Pray about it. And you must be at least 21 to participate.} {I am not responsible for bad dates or things gone wrong.  I am just a host hoping for good things!}
