Pass The Pen Game

Here's something new, a community building exercise from Matt Jones. Matt received a John Chow pen along with some other goodies and wants to send it around the world. I now have the pen (see photograph) and am looking for the next person to pass it on to...Read the instructions below and take a look at Matts' blog. If you want to take part, email me with your details.

1. The first person to comment on this post requesting that the pen be sent to them will be sent the pen! To be sent the pen you must have a blog and be a fan of John Chow. You must comment so everyone else can see, but email your:Name:Address: (remember to include your country!)PostCode:Blog address:to the current pen holder: so they can send the pen to you, and to Matt: (Matt started the game)
2. When you receive the pen, take a photo of it and smack it on your blog! Copy and Paste this exact list of instructions on your blog (numbers 1-4), with Matts email address included.
3. Shoot Matt a quick email including a link to your post. He will then write a follow up post, including your site your name and your county, and we will be able to see where the pen has been! If you copy it to the current ‘pen-holder’ they may follow up on the story as well.
4. Matt will then continue to write a follow up post for every person the pen visits, until we have a list of different countries where the pen has been! If you took part in The official John Chow Fans - Pass the Pen Game feel free to write a follow up post as well about where the pen has been.What’s the point?Firstly you will get several links from Matt, because each follow up post He writes will include you. That is not really the aim of the game though, it is community building and is a bit of fun. Who knows where the pen will end up! You may think there is a risk here, after all someone could ruin the fun and just keep hold of the pen. This would result in bad press for them and it's hardly worth anything, its a biro!So who wants to play Pass the pen?
