Blog-a-thon 2007

I know this is a bit off topic, but it's for a good cause. It's blogathon time again where participants update their websites every 30 minutes for 24 hours straight, collecting sponsorships. While Ghost Stories won't be participating, I am helping out Write Stuff, group blog for writers and will be sponsoring the charity First Book. It'll begin at 6:00 a.m. Pacific time July 28th and will run until 6:00 a.m. July 29th.

If you would like to donate/pledge some money this is what you do:

1. Visit the Blog-a-thon site.

2. Go to the list of bloggers, and when you find someone you'd like to support, click the sponsor this blogger link.

3. Choose how much you'd like to sponsor for, and whether it's a lump sum, or an hourly amount.

4. Decide how you'd like to appear on the site, and to your blogger. You can be completely open, or completely anonymous. Either way, your email address is never published on the site. See our privacy policy for details.

5. After the event, you'll receive two reminders directing you to your blogger's charity to fulfill your pledge. If you have already donated, just disregard the email."

The minimum amount you can donate for our charity is $5. There may even be a few contests during the event where you can win a journal or gift certificate to among other things.

If you are a writer and would like to donate your time (even if it's just for an hour) and blog during the event at Write Stuff, email Karen at You must let her know as soon as possible.
