Blogathon - important stuff! 
2nd-Jul-2009 07:41 am
Sponsor me!


Are you doing Blogathon?

Yes, on Team Venture (in person)!
Yes, on Team Venture (long-distance)!
Yes, on my own!

If you're blogging, give me your link and I shall pimp you. We shall all pimp each other.

I was up at 4am, ack. So I'm not coherent enough to do my big all-about-Blogathon post. But a really quick FAQ:

* Blogathon is July 25 9am EST - July 26 9am EST. I will be posting fiction & poetry every half hour for 24 hours, to raise money for the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center. This is my seventh year doing Blogathon. Whoa.

* I'll also be auctioning off shiny things at blogforbarcc - auction runs 7/20-7/27.

* If you are artistically inclined and want to donate something to the cause, please make sure you're on this list! My brain's only half here. If you're not on the list, you have slipped out of my head. Mea culpa. You are welcome to donate more than one thing! I have Concerns about having enough things.

* You do not have to send me the item - you can send it directly to the winner. But I need a photo and description by July 19th at the latest.

* And even if your item is nowhere near ready - can you give me a general idea of what it will be? Too many "something"s there! Just - "pendant based on jewel queens" or "handspun for "Unruly Harvest"" or whatever.

* If you want to make something but don't know what, here are some ideas!

* Go click here anyway, just so you can see some of the amazing stuff we'll have!

* Even if you can't sponsor or bid, you can help me spread the word. BARCC helps thousands of survivors every year. You can help facilitate that. Be a part of something awesome. Pass this info around. Tell your family or friends. Interview me on your blog. Whatever.

Now I try to go back to sleep.

You should have a "maybe" button on there.

Or an "I'll at least be reading" button.

I'll be reading (you'll see my comments to prove it). I don't know if I can afford to donate. But pimp, I shall. (There is such a thing as good pimping.)

I unlocked a blog entry with a photo of the plarn bag. Click on my LJ Username, and it will come up. Please let me know if you need a different file.

I didn't realize long-distance participation in Team Venture was an option :)

I'm --> http://www.blogathon.org/pledge.php?blogid=71 <-- right there.

... You've got me considering writing something ahead and blogging a piece of it every hour. Is that cheating?

Official policy is to write something in realtime - what I'll be doing is posting the existing story + link to auction and then keeping a rolling realtime commentary at the bottom on the post.

I'm here --> http://www.blogathon.org/pledge.php?blogid=65

Blogging for St. Jude's again, third year running.

Thanks. :0) (I'll be putting up boost signals over the next few weeks as well.)

I have nothing I can create related to materials, but I can bring food again and might even be able to spend a little time there cooking if you'd like, if my wife says its OK.

We'll be in Littleton this year - is that too far?

Nah, it should be fine.

Any major preferences between carbs and protein?

I'm blogging for the Nature Conservancy, but my blog (jennaria) isn't up on the Blogathon site yet. No linkage for me. :rueful look:
22nd-Jul-2009 08:35 pm (UTC)
Blogathon let me sponsor you but they are utterly failing to send me the e-mail so I can complete registration by their deadline tonight. And my manager only let me know Monday afternoon that I can have my vacation this week as I requested. Phooey.

So anyway--I'll be blogging for DELTA Rescue again, and this time I'm going to videoblog, on YouTube, where I am also weofodthignen, so that's http://www.youtube.com/user/weofodthignen. Topic: basic heathen stuff, in particular talking about the gods and goddesses - what else I'll talk about is still being decided, since I wasn't sure I'd be able to do this.

I'd love it if you could pimp me, sorry about the last minute notice.
