I feel guilty for not participating in Blogathon this year, but only a little bit guilty. Why? Because by not having to come up with clever new content every thirty minutes, I’ve been able to actually surf the blogs of the folks who are participating.
So far, btw, I’ve seen at least seven with Harry Potter themes, and one with a Degrassi theme. Degrassi is one of my top secret obsessions, because I’m almost 37 and shouldn’t be watching a show for kids. Shh, don’t tell.
I also got to write a guest post for Jessica The Rock Chick, who is blogging for VH1’s Save the Music Foundation. Jessica has a lot of friends who love music and recognize the importance of arts education – and specifically music education – in public schools, and it’s an honor to be in such company. Wanna see what I wrote? Go here. (Any formatting issues are mine, not hers – I forgot to remove return tags before I sent the file.) And make sure you click on Jessica’s “sponsor me” link, and throw some dead presidents her way.
Reading is often more fun than writing so I can see why you’d stand off to the side every so often, Melissa. That’s a lot of Potter themed blogs. I’ve not come across any yet…
hey thanks for the pledge! i admit to a closet degrassi obsession as well.
the past two years i’ve seriously considered not doing blogathon, but i keep showing up. i just feel like i’d regret it if i stopped. but it would be so nice to actually be able to surf though more of the blogathon sites than those that i’m monitoring!
Do you remember the URLs for the HP folks? Love to see those!
Thanks for your pledge earlier! I’m still going strong.
Also, it’s nice to know I’m not alone in my pained waiting for Melanie Rawn to write The Captal’s Tower.
