We’re into the homestretch now with just four more days until the Blogathon wherein I will attempt to write two blog posts an hour that are witty, entertaining, and (most importantly come 3AM) coherent. Currently I’ve got four donors for a total of $80 for the Humane Society of Huron Valley which is, in all honesty, somewhat disappointing. Last time I did a Blogathon we managed to pull together $474 and I was really hoping to beat that this year. Perhaps it’s the bad economy or maybe my choice of charity this time wasn’t very appealing. I’m not sure why I’ve not had more sponsors so far, but I won’t be letting it dampen my enthusiasm come Saturday. Any extra money is still money they didn’t have previously so I’ll take solace from that.
Not that there isn’t still time if you’ve been thinking about sponsoring me this year. It doesn’t have to be a huge amount of money as even $5 or $10 would add up if enough people were to make a pledge. I know it’s annoying that you have to register an account with the Blogathon website in order to make a pledge, but that’s only so they can send out a reminder email once the event is over. You don’t even have to reveal who you are to me if you don’t wish to do so. And it’s for a very good cause as the Humane Society of Huron Valley is where we got Beanie from not too long ago. They’re in the middle of building a brand new modern facility that will allow them to take better care of even more animals than they currently have capacity for.
We have five days left to get folks to sponsor me (pledges can be made right up to and during the ‘thon itself) so if you decide you’d like to make a pledge then just click here and register an account. This year should be interesting as I’ll be making use of Twitter and my webcam to allow for some interactivity above and beyond just leaving a comment.
