Guess what happened today?
See that blue widget thing in the right sidebar? The one that tells us how much moolah the Secular Student Alliance has raised since it started back on June 6th? Today it crossed the $60,000 mark.
I believe I am all recovered from my blogathon on Saturday and Sunday. That was a wild ride. It was stressful, but always in a fun, how am I going to stratergize this next part? kind of way. Okay, it sucked between 3am and 5am. It really did. I was very tired, and I’m amazed that I managed to turn out more than kittehs in that two hour stretch (you’ll notice I said “more than” – there was one kitteh). I slept from 7am to 11am and then went out and picnicked with my fellow freethinkers, and throughout the day peeked in on Ophelia, Ian and Dale as they picked up the blogathon batons. Yesterday was JT and Michaelyn and Leah.
Who’s blogathoning today? Right this moment we have Chana Messinger over at The Merely Real, Andrew Tripp at Considered Exclamations, and FtB’s Greta Christina at Greta Christina’s Blog busting booty to raise money for the SSA. And there are incredible bloggers lined up every day through this Sunday! – each blogger toiling over keyboards to entertain and cajole you out a a few bucks to help support the Secular Student Alliance.
Even if you’ve already donated or you’re not planning to donate, I ask you really nicely to consider stopping by to say hi, to lend a little visible support in the comments. This blogathoning business is hard! It’s emotionally and physically draining and I found that at times it only took one little comment (especially at 4:30 in the morning) to keep the motivation and creativity flowing.
