I think I'm going to start keeping an e-journal of my time as a London 2012 Olympics Games Maker Selection Event Volunteer.

Whoa, a bit of a mouthful to start with eh. OK, for those of you who don't know, the Olympics are made possible only with the help of volunteers, a process pioneered at the London 1948 Olympics. Now the Olympics return to the Capital and I've been selected to help recruit some of the 70,000 volunteers needed to make the 2012 games possible. These volunteers are dubbed Games Makers as without them, the games just could not go ahead.

The people who interview the potential Games Makers are part of a team called SEVs; Selection Event Volunteers. I actually became aware of the SEV position through my application to become a Games Maker. I was shortlisted and then successfully recruited in late 2010.

I have yet to receive my interview date but will post on here when it comes through.

I'm probably going to feel like a complete wastrel in comparison, but I'll read..

And don't forget to add lots of other people to your "circle" and grant them access if you want other readers. :)
