I am officially announcing that I am participating in Blogathon 2006 in honor of Lauren. She introduced me to blogging wayyyyy the heck back in
2003 2002 and I just jumped into the fray with her. We shared a love of the well-written word (and the incredible horror of the poorly-written word as well!) and I know she’d be doing this if she were here.
What is a blog-a-thon, you ask? (You know you asked, admit it. I can hear you all the way over here!) Okay, Lucy, here’s the ‘splnation:
Each participant must update every 30 minutes for the 24-hour period beginning on July 29, 2006, at 6:00 AM Pacific Time. Everyone blogs during the same 24-hour period
Basically, you pick a charity (I chose the Children’s Cancer Foundation) and raise money to donate by asking friends/family/strangers to sponsor you. If you make it all the way through the 24 hours, you can donate your funds to the charity you chose.
You can Sponsor Me! by clicking on those very words! Every little bit helps so even if it’s just a dollar, that’s great. It’s so very much appreciated!
Special shout out to Mollie for giving me the nudge I needed. I know exactly who sent you, too. :)
Actually, I think you started blogging in 2002, because I started in December 2002 and I followed you. You are a great, great grandmother in this business!
Mollie, I daresay it was Lauren herself that sent you. :) Your comment was the thing that allowed me to commit to the project. So, I thank you very much!
=) actually no one sent me! I was looking through the bloggers list on the blogathon website and something told me to click your link :) Thanks for Sponsoring me back! Mind if I link you?
