As in previous years, in the GBNEH3, participating bloggers will hide an Easter Egg somewhere on their site, and bloggers and non-bloggers alike are invited to search for them.

(2) Hide an egg or a reference to an egg somewhere on your blog on or before Easter Sunday, April 8. You can hide your egg anywhere on your site — on the main page, in a sidebar, on a different page, in an image, in a post. You can use something as obvious as an image of an egg, or you can look at the very clever and subtle things people did last year for ideas.
2a) If your egg is hidden in a particularly tricky way, you may wish to link it to a confirmation page saying something like “Congratulations, you found my Egg!”
2b) If you participated in previous years and your egg(s) from those events are still present somewhere on your blog, like mine is, you will need to hide a new egg in a new place.
2c) If you hide your egg in a post, it should be no earlier than Sunday 1 April and no later than Easter Sunday 8 April. EDIT: If you hide your egg in a post, please DO NOT hide it in a post about the Mists of Pandaria beta! Surely I cannot be the only person who doesn’t want to be spoiled!
2d) After you have hidden your egg, send an email containing the location where you’ve hidden your egg to the above email address by midnight, UTC, on Saturday 7 April. If you want to send an email on or before Saturday the 7th saying “it’ll be in a post that I will publish on Sunday the 8th”, that’s fine. If you want to include some kind of public clue to where your egg is, indicate it clearly in your email — but don’t feel obligated to provide a hint for the hunters ;)
(3) On Easter Sunday 8 April, I will post a list of all participating blogs/sites and any clues with which they may have provided me. Egg hunters will then have until midnight, UTC, on Thursday the 12th to send in lists of eggs they’ve found to the wowegghunt email address. I’ll post some guidelines for doing this along with the list of participating bloggers on the 8th.
(4) On Saturday the 14th, after I have had some time to compile the lists and make sure I haven’t missed anyone’s contribution, I’ll post the winners!
4b) Vidyala has also graciously agreed to draw headshot/avatar images for two runner-ups; we’ll throw the names of everyone else who finds all the eggs in a hat and let Lady RNG choose the winners.
