BBS Rules & Logistics

by Meghann on February 7, 2009

Get Ready, Get Set, It’s Blogging Bake Sale time!!

Well actually the bake sale kicks off Monday at 11am EST, but I wanted to give you guys a heads up on the rules and logistics and all that fun stuff just to keep it fair. I know how excited everyone is, including me, so I want to have a clear picture in your head of how this is going to work so you can be at your computers ready to begin.

First of all I want to remind everyone that all proceeds from this bake sale go directly to my Team in Training efforts for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. You will be supporting a great cause and are aiding in saving lives here.

I’m sure many of you are very curious how this Blogging Bake Sale is going to work and to be honest I have been wondering the same thing. I have been throwing ideas back and forth between readers, friends and fellow bloggers for the past couple of weeks. After much thought and consideration to others this is what I have come up with .

On Monday, February 9 at 11 am est. I will post all of the items each baker has donated. Each item will have a minimum bid of $20. Once the items are officially posted all buyers will then e-mail this address ( blogbakesale@gmail.com ) with a bid of what they would like to purchase.

To have an official bid on an item you must e-mail me at blogbakesale@gmail.com any bids left in the comments section will not be reviewed, only bids e-mailed will be considered official and affirmative.

Think of the bid as a silent auction of sorts. All buyers will have until midnight EST to submit their bid for that day’s auction. Throughout the day I will leave comments in the comments section of the post with the highest bid for the items at that moment. I am hoping this will encourage others to bid higher for the items they really want or bid for items that have not had a bid yet.

If by the time I close the auction there is a tie of bids for a particular item, lets say three people bid $40 for some brownies, then I will draw those names from the hat and have a random winner from that bid.

Once a reader has won the bid on an item they will then donate the specified amount to my TNT page, when they leave the donation they must put what they have won in the bake sale in the comments section. Once the donation goes through I will e-mail the baker the winner’s address and it will be the baker’s responsibility to send the baked goods to the winner.

The winner has 24 hours to make the online donation. If in that time frame the donation is not made, the next highest bidder will be contacted or the item will go back up for bid.

Each day over the week all of the baked goods still up for sale will be reposted in auction format until Friday the 13th when the bake sale ends.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments regarding the Bake Sale Format. I am really excited for this adventure and know it will be a success!!

This is cool, but just a quick question – is shipping included in the bid? Or does the baker (or winner) have to pay for shipping?

8 Meghann February 7, 2009 at 4:17 pm

MB – all bids for monday must be in by midnight EST

Chantalle – the Baker covers shipping costs
