Blog-a-thon 2008, Giveaway/Contests

Get Ready …

The 2008 Blog-a-thon is coming up! (July 26th). Even though the official site is taking a break this year, I’ve decided to go ahead and blog for something that I feel very strongly about. I’m currently working on details and have a lot of awesome things lined up to talk about so I hope you’ll mark your calendars and plan on spending 24 solid hours with me on July 26th (beginning at 6:00 a.m July 26th and ending at 6:00 a.m. July 27th) as I post something fun (and I hope touching) every 30 minutes. I’m approaching the blog-a-thon a bit differently this year; I figure since the “official” ‘thon is not happening, I would take creative license and put a small twist on things.

Go on, mark you calendars now. Oh, and make sure you have extra tissues close at hand – it’s most likely going to be an emotional 24 hours. 🙂

More information will be coming soon!
