Bloggerthon has Begun

"On July 29th of 2000, Cat Connor of Frytopia posted an entry in her blog every fifteen minutes for twenty-four hours. At the end of her adventure she had posted a whopping 96 entries and had what was truly a unique experience in the blogging world. The following year when she decided to stage the 24-hour blogging event again, she decided that her event would do more than just gain attention - it would make a difference in the world. So Blogathon was born."

This morning the fifth annual Blogathon began. Charities which gain from Blogathon include RAINN, Save the Tiger and the Human Rights Campaign.

As of this entry there were 247 Participants · 1426 Sponsors · $42401.95 Total Pledged.
