First International ASMR Day Announced

On Facebook I was notified of an event that was recently created by an experiencer. It’s called International ASMR Day and it’s set for Monday, April 9, 2012. The time is set for 12:00 AM until 3:00 AM – not sure if this is an error or if it’s a time that’s been carefully allocated so that everybody all over the globe can join in. Over here where I am it would be about dawn when it starts. I’m not usually up that early!

Right now it’s in the planning stages and on the wall there’s just talk of what could be done as far as celebrations go – that and there’s a graphic that supporters are encouraged to use on their profiles to show their support. As you can imagine there’s also some optimistic ideas for next year, even involving bringing Oprah out of retirement!

There are two or three YouTube videos for you all to watch that might explain what the event is all about and what the people behind it hope to achieve. You can view those here (I've also added them to the community videos playlist on my YouTube channel):

The event is public, and so anybody can see it and join the event – so you can join straight away and invite your friends to do so as well. I’ve posted about it on the Facebook page, and the Facebook group in addition to this blog post. And it’ll also likely crop up on YouTube, Twitter and tumblr.

There’s only really one concern of mine, and that is that it’s a public event, so you have to decide whether you’re comfortable with that. If you find you can’t live with that, it’s quite near Hug Your Brain day, which is on April 24th, just more than two weeks later. This is a closed event celebrated by the ASMR group on Facebook, which first ran in 2010 and again in 2011 (but in a less official capacity), and can only be seen and joined by members. Everyone is sent a mass invite. We even have a logo for this year’s event!

So we have two days to look forward to in April! Thanks go to the organiser of the event, MsAutumnRed and everyone else involved. We hope to see this event succeed!

Update: The event now has a Facebook Page and a Twitter profile. There are also several people who make YouTube announcements related to the event. You can find out who they are by visiting our Facebook group or following the sources mentioned above.

Bookmarking and commenting only takes a little time, and you can also consider subscribing to my RSS feed for more!

I apologise if you are having trouble leaving a comment. Sometimes the comment system doesn't accept comments. I'm looking in to this right now, and hopefully can find a fix soon. There are several potentional reasons why this may be happening to some people, and one of them points in the direction of a recent Blogger update.

This is the main reason why I am unable to respond to comments left on the blog for the time being, but rest assured that I do read and approve comments that make it through. If you really need to get a hold of me, then visit my contact page in the sidebar to the right. Thanks.
