Since its Wednesday, this would usually be my Writers’ Uni-Verse-City segement day, but I have been up to something special I want to share with you.

Since I finished the first draft of my novel for the Round of Words in 80 Days writing challenge, I’ve been working on some diverse projects such as competing to be a Samsung Global Blogger for the 2012 Olympics in London!

Representing Belgium (and Canada too of course), I would be tweeting, blogging and vlogging. That’s right, vlogging during the Olympics this summer to bring you the latest scoop and the most entertaining and funny stories I can dig up in London, which is also celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee!

So if you’d like to show your support for me as a Samsung Global Blogger to read/see some amazing stories this summer, please feel free to:

  • click the “thumbs up” support button on my video 
  • re-blog this post
  • spread the word/link on Facebook and to your preferred social networks
  • annnd tweet, tweet & retweet the link to my video:

    Nicole Basaraba is a wonderful writing and the founder of the Amazing Writers’ Uni-Verse-City (WUVC for short). Her travel blogs and photography is outstanding and I think she’d do a BANG up job at the London Olympics!! She’s got my vote for Samsung Global Blogger…how about yours?

  14. I would support you, but I really can’t support the Olympics as they are being used here in the UK as a pretence to curtail civil rights: http://andreasmoser.wordpress.com/2012/05/29/london-olympics-vs-human-rights/
