Mark Your Calendars for “Blogging ‘Round the Clock”

While I had a great time in Boston, it’s good to be back home with reliable internet access. The Sustainable Blogosphere’s been busy over the last few days (I had almost 700 items in my “Sustainability” folder on my Bloglines account), and I’ll be getting to some of those issues. First, though, the big announcment I promised…

On July 11th, sustainablog will be two years old. While I didn’t make a big deal of the first anniversary, this year I want to celebrate. So, from 9 am (CST) on July 11th to 9 am July 12th, I’ll be “Blogging ‘Round the Clock.” That’s right — a 24-hour blogathon. There’s a method to my madness, though (and, yes, I realize this sounds like madness) — sustainablog will be raising funds for St. Louis’ premiere site for all things sustainable, the Missouri Botanical GardensEarthways Center. I’ve been a member of the Garden for three years and couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate two years of sustainable blogging than by supporting this amazing institution. I talked to the Center’s Program Director Jean Ponzi before leaving last week, and they’re excited to be a part of this effort.

Of course, I can’t do this all on my own, so I’ll be asking for your help. First, I’ll be soliciting “per post” pledges. If you’re willing, make a pledge of whatever you think you can afford: $.10, $.50, or $1.00 per post would all help. I figure I’ll be able to make about fifty posts in the 24-hour time frame, so that should help you calculate. Additionally, I’d like to invite other bloggers to “donate” a post to the effort. I’ll be hitting up people individually, but start thinking about participating — the more the merrier! Finally, I’ll donate 50% of my affiliate commissions from any purchases made from sustainablog Bazaar merchants during “Blogging ‘Round the Clock.” Together, I’m hoping we can all celebrate sustainablog and the Sustainable Blogosphere, and raise a tidy sum for the Earthways Center.

Feel free to email me with questions. I’ll be posting reminders, and will also send out press releases closer to the event. Thanks in advance for your support — I know this will be a great event!

    Hi ##NAME##, while looking for info on hyip fraud, I saw your blog ##TITLE##. A lot of people got excited by it. Those may be the same folks who get excited about the idea of ending the day with $150 for every $100 they “spend” in a HYIP. In time they will have to face up to having lost their butts in a scam, fraud, or ponzi scheme. Better to have the hyip fraud information upfront like in the ##LINK##. You don’t have to buy the ebook & membership for $47 to avoid losing – or just don’t play – until you know how the pros who wrote it make their money – and yours too!
