loves prizers, both given and received. As the first Blogathon supporter of Velma's World, local knitter OneTwistedKitty Rebecca will receive her choice of a handknit beanie or a skein of handspun yarn, both created by yours truly. She tells me she is verklempt in anticipation. Cheers, Rebecca!
I've also received cash donations from my Luddite friends Shaylin, Produce, and Eli. Their names, ALONG WITH YOURS IF YOU PONY UP, will be put in a hat and, at the conclusion of the Blogathon (maybe even sooner, if the mood strikes), I will reach my pretty little mitt into said hat and draw out multiple names representing those lucky contributors who will be receiving one or more mystery prizers, courtesy of moi.
So, as they say, GIVE EARLY AND OFTEN. Here's the 411:
Beginning at 6:00am Pacific on Saturday, July 29th (that's this Saturday, peeps), I'll be placing toothpicks under my eyelids to prop them open (not really) and stay up for 24 CONSECUTIVE HOURS (really!) to blog for charity. I must post a minimum of once every 30 minutes in order to stay in the Blogathon (like a walkathon, but I'll be blogging, not walking, get it?). My "theme" is binary: I'll be blogging about disc golfing on the hour (e.g., 6:00, 7:00, 8:00...) and fiber fun (knitting & spinning & felting, oh my!) on the half-hour (e.g., 6:30, 7:30, 8:30...). So, if at say, 3:30 a.m. after the bars close you get a hankerin' for a hank o' yarn, or at 11:00 a.m. you discern a discing dilemma, log on and come keep me company. I'll be doing anything I can think of to stay awake, heehee, so I'm going to shoot for lots of audience participation. Now I just need to drum up an audience...
So here's what to do:
- Go HERE and sponsor my blog for charity; then
- Come back HERE on the 29th-30th and say "howdy!"
- Leave me a comment on Velma's World so I'll know you contributed.
