Can you believe it? I can’t believe it. It’s only 6 days until Blogathon 2010, Bigger and Better than Ever. I hope you all are going to be around this weekend, because there is going to be a whole lotta stuff for you to check out!
If you’re new to the blog, you couldn’t have picked a better time to come on in. Saturday is the Second Annual 24 posts in 24 hours Blogathon, and it’s going to be a blast! For you, at least. For me it is going to be exhausting and insane, but also a blast.
Over the next few days I’ll be letting you all in on what’s going to be happening, because there is just too much for one post. I know. I can barely contain my excitement. There are going to be EIGHT- yes, an OCTET of AWESOME- each blogging for 24 hours straight. (OK, one painting and the other seven blogging, but close enough.) That is 192 posts in one day. I usually do 20 posts a month.
I have selected the person for whom I will be fundraising- Bradyn Ferguson, as I mentioned in a prior post. I’ll post more about him later in the week. I will be joined by three other bloggers in raising funds for Bradyn’s service dog. The other 4 bloggers have selected fantastic groups that are meaningful to them, which will be posted here as well as on their blogs.
Just like last year, there will be some incredible giveaways happening at random times throughout the day. There are no financial requirements in order to be eligible for the giveaways- they are open to everyone who comes and comments! While I do have a fundraising goal, I know times are hard and there is no obligation to donate in order to join in the fun.
But Dr. V, didn’t you eat dog food live on the web last year?
Yes. Yes, I did. And this year I’m eating something even worse. It’s all for a good cause. At least that is what I keep telling myself.
So come on down on Saturday, I’ll be here! And tell your friends, tell your neighbors- it’s a virtual block party and all are invited! If you have any burning questions to ask or topics you really want me to post about, this is a good time to make requests.
