This year, the first blog I ran across who is facilitating the saint of the year devotion, is A Catholic Life. Go to the linked post and leave your name, or initials and email.
The saint will be chosen at random (he or she will choose you). If you are unfamiliar with the saint you receive, it is a good chance to research their life and spirituality.
It can be just as exciting to get an "unknown" saint as it is to get one of your favorites.
