“Well, with the Blogathon nigh upon us, (it’s this weekend!) I wanted to give one last push to get some more sponsors for my charity. So far I’ve raised over $200, which is much better than last year, but I want more! The Blogathon in general now has over 200 participants and has gathered something like $45,000 in pledges, so we’re doing great.
I’m offering one incentive to pledge–as stated on my site. If you sponsor me for $20+ I’ll write a bad poem about you during the Blogathon (I only write bad poetry so I’m just making sure no one’s expecting too much.) If you sponsor me for $50+ I’ll write a short story about you (my fiction’s better than my poetry, but who knows how it’ll be after some sleep deprivation).
I hope you’ll all be reading this weekend and please send me comments, emails, instant messages (I’m on MSN IM and Yahoo! IM as lucylarou if you want to say hi) to help keep me awake. Thanks again for all your good thoughts and good money!
Sponsor me by clicking on this link: http://www.blogathon.org/sponsor.php?part=13 After you sign up, they will send you a confirmation email which will include a link that you need to click to prove that you really did want to sponsor. Then after the Blogathon they will send you an email telling you where to send the money. Thanks again.”
