We're back and we can hear you loud and clear. We've had a great first round up here at Mactweets, and we've got tweets from many macpassionate folk whose feet are itching to go for another 'happy feet' dance. Jamie and Deeba are loving the response as much as you, and are now thrilled to announce the second challenge.

It's time to RING OUT THE OLD, AND BRING IN THE NEW! Yes indeed, with a brand new 2010 staring us in the face, we've thought up something for the next challenge...

Something about your macs should be NEW.
"Maybe drying out fruit to create a flavor/color powder, try Italian meringue, try new flavor combos, try getting feet if you've never done that before... or use your macs to create a new dessert. Out with the old, in with the new!"

Because of the holidays, we're giving you a little extra time to post. Please have your Mac Attack Post up between January 10 and January 15 '10.

Here are the rules of the game:
  1. Once you have posted your Mac Attack macarons on your blog, please make sure you leave a comment with a link here on this post.
  2. Please link back to this challenge on your post.
  3. Please feel free to use the Mac Attack logo. It isn't mandatory but is a nice way to get the word out!
  4. Add the Mac Attack badge (logo) with link to your sidebar.
Round up will be on January 20, 2010.
Again, if we have as many or more than this last challenge, we will divide the round up into groups to make sure everyone's macs are visible and you have the time to visit all of them.

And attention please!!! add Mactweets to your RSS feed or sign up for e-mail alerts. This way you will always be in the loop and know as soon as we add a new post, a tutorial or a round up. And, as always, spread the word!

The first official Mactweets due date is here! I know, crazy to be making macs right before the holidays, right smack dab in the middle of all the holiday baking, but so goes the passion! I know that some of you have already posted your macarons, and heaven knows that Deeba and Jamie are trying to keep track so as not to miss one Mac Maker for the round up, but please leave a comment here with the link back to your Mac Post so you can be sure to be counted in the round up.

We hope to have the round up by December 15.Thanks and Happy Holidays.
