And this is a wrap for this year’s Blogathon! (#Blogathon)

It’s now 9AM EDT and not a moment too soon. I’ve somehow managed to claw my way through my third Blogathon and we managed to pick up a few more sponsors during the night. All told we raised $268.63 for the Humane Society of Huron Valley and I’d like to thank each and every one of you who made a pledge. The ‘thon as a whole racked up over $41,000 for charity this year, That’s not too shabby.

Hopefully you will find the vast majority of the entries I made during the night entertaining, informative, or both. I tried to maintain a decent amount of content worth reading versus throw away posts where I gibbered incoherently.

Special thanks to ***Dave, Last Hussar, JethricOne, Craig, and all the other folks who I’m too tired to remember at the moment that took the time to chat with me either on the live video feed or via Twitter. You guys helped me get through the night and gave me lots of great pointers to entry ideas. Now my time is up and I can go lay down and catch some much needed rest.

See you guys in a few hours.

  1. Congrats Les, you did it! I’m very proud of you, you’ve done good work today. Looking forward to seeing you around next year and have a great sleep. -Jeff

  2. Special thanks to …, Last Hussar

    I should thank you for being polite enough not to show you were as bored as hell at my inane chatter.

  3. Thanks everyone. I’m up and about to go get some “breakfast” at IHOP. I’m still pretty tired so I don’t think I should have too much trouble getting to sleep tonight.

    LH, your chatter was still better than sitting there alone trying to think of stuff to blog about. I just feel bad for the folks who tuned into the live feed to watch a fat guy in his basement mutter to himself as he typed furiously at his keyboard. That must have just been exciting as hell.

  4. Sorry- all I did was stay logged on the video feed like a creepy stalker. Pat yourself on the back, though; I couldn’t do that.

  5. I was actually amazed at how many people seem to pay attention to the feed. We consistently had at least 4 people watching at all times with a height of up to 15 or so. I think by the time I shut it down some 750 people had been to the channel.
