Blogathon 2006 is over -- but it's not too late to sponsor! Several of my favorite bloggers joined in this noble effort, and you can still participate by both reading their posts and supporting their fave charities. For the next 45 hours or so it's still possible to pledge to the organizations highlighted by these noble folks -- who just pulled an amazing all-nighter, creating 48 blog posts in a 24-hour period. The thrillingly readable and always delightful Bakerina was blogging for Heifer International. She spent some of her blogging time here with us in lovely SpaHa, due to internet provider problems, and we had an absolutely grand time hosting her. As I said in one of her comment sections, it was something like being an auntie -- G and I got a lot of vicarious thrill out of the deal, but unlike Bakerina, we got to sleep through the rough bits. You too can join in the fun by reading and sponsoring.
If you want a great read, simultaneously hysterically funny and truly poignant, go to All About Boys -- a blog put up specifically for Blogathon by the celebrated Bunni of Bunniblog to raise funds for Columbia Memorial Hospital Foundation. Read and sponsor -- you simply won't be able to help yourself. Bunni really pulled a DOUBLE blogathon -- she also posted a thrilling horror-film trivia game on her regular blog (where you too will shortly become a regular). This blog benefited the American Heart Association. You can feel free to play the horror film game in retrospect, and sponsor, sponsor, sponsor...
Another blogger who delights readers worldwide, Sam of the renowned Becks 'n' Posh, blogged for Food Runners, a Bay Area organization that feeds the hungry with the finest of farm produce, restaurant and food shop donations. Read all about her remarkable Blogathon day of creating culinary delights, travelling with the folks from her charity, and going on late-night fancy food and drink crawls with chums. How did anyone do all this in 24 hours and blog about it the whole way through? Guess you'll just have to read (and sponsor, catch my drift?) to find out.
Enjoy! I know I did. And yes, I sponsored, too.
