Miss Kat says: "Can you put up a poll asking what people'd like me to do for recipes? I kinda can't bake for 24 hours straight, so I want to get the stuff baked/cooked *now* and just write about it at Blogathon. I'm thinking my famous chocolate chip cookies, stupid-easy pineapple angelfood cake, curry, pasties... anything else?"

In addition, I has Big News:

Everyone who sponsors a Team Venture blogathonner gets a chance to win Fabulous Prizes.

I don't know what the prizes will be yet! But they will be fabulous. Custom story by me? Custom puzzle by slipjig? Jewelry? Cookies? Books?

If you want to donate something to the prize pool, e-mail me at shadesong AT (Author friends, this is your chance to get in on the benefiting-charity thing!)

Every sponsorship gets one ticket. I can't do the X amount of dollars = X amount of tickets thing this time, because it ate my brain too much. One sponsorship, one ticket. Sponsoring two Team Venture bloggers gets you two tickets. There should be some sort of bonus for sponsoring all 11 of us.

Yes, I'm kinda crazy to do this. But I'll do pretty much anything to raise money for BARCC and help my teammates raise money for their charities. Blogathon is not something one does casually. These people are here - coming here from New York and Georgia, yet - because they feel passionately about doing everything they can for charity. In some cases because they just love that charity - in some cases because they have a deep connection to that charity, through trauma or loss of a loved one. This is a big tough thing. The reason I'm gathering us all together like this is because it's brutal to Blogathon on your own. Here at Team Venture, we'll keep each other awake and stretching, hydrating and writing.

We all care deeply about our charities - about helping them, and about helping each other.

So check your budget, and see what you can do to keep Team Venture going.

One week and one day til the 'thon.

One last note? Any Team Venturites who have yet to make a card ought to do so, lest I make one for them. I'm lookin' at you, slipjig. ;)
