My totals are fuzzy right now, because some auction winners haven't registered their bids here (which you must do, remember!), and I think I've had some more non-auction sponsorships.

If you've already entered your sponsorship or winning bid and don't want to wait for Blogathon.org's e-mail, you can pay here.

But you must enter your winning bid at Blogathon.org.


(Reminder: You can sponsor me through tomorrow!)

EDIT: There's apparently a "donate now" button in your Blogathon.org profile. Use that!

I'm assuming they're waiting til Saturday, as you can enter a sponsorship through Friday....

What name did you register under? Not seeing you as Mydochas...

I went to Blogathon.org and edited my original donation amount upward, then paid the new amount through the website link -- does that work?

That's what I did, also.

I hope I did mine correctly - I didn't have to wait for emails, they were there instantly!
(Meaning I hope I sent you the correct receipt! ha!)

What I did:
Go to Blogathon (with the link you specified so it goes under your name) and register.
Got confirmation email of joining.
Used that link to confirm registration on Blogathon's page.
I DID have to go back into my Profile - and if you look under your donation box on your Profile, there is a link to "Donate now".
It takes you to the Network For Good page.
Register there, then make payment - it asks if you would like to pay by Credit Card or Paypal.
I used Paypal.
Make donation, check email again and I had both the confirmation/receipt for Network for Good as well as my PayPal receipt.
*Remember to check Spam folder!

It was kind of confusing, because at first, neither the Blogathon page nor the confirmation email mentioned that you have to go back and register for Network for Good and make the payment there, otherwise your donation is in limbo as a promise, not as an actual donation.

ETA - Using Paypal - they ask if you want to add a tad more to your donation, for some 4.something percent ...for their fees, I guess. There are radio buttons for this. For $20, my add on was $0.95 - otherwise, you short-change the actual donation amount.

I don't think it's just for using paypal -- I believe I paid with a credit card, and was given the option of adding some more to cover the percentage taken by NetworkForGood.

I keep forgetting to register my second donation, for the auction - I'll do that right now! But, just as a heads up, due to an unfortunate adventure in identity theft, I won't be able to make my donation until my bank account is entirely cleaned up. Hopefully, that'll be by Monday! (Or else I might cry. Sigh.)

FYI - for dorks like me who did not use a solid dollar amount, the bid has to go up or down accordingly. My $57.50 bid went in as $58.

Also, not everyone got the "donate now" button on their profile. I didn't!

Yeah, I don't have a donate now button either.

I finally went back and wrestled my way through the approx. 15 screens and made good on my pledge. Sorry it's so late, but Blogathon utterly failed to send me e-mails (so I wasn't able to complete registering as a blogger, which I was a bit sad about). I hope it's just my unusual ISP and not a more widespread problem. Luckily the system was still willing to take my money! (Though wow, complicated.)
