officially doing Blogathon ’09!

Hello everybody!

I am very happy to announce that Therapy in the Making will be taking part in this year’s Blogathon! I thought it would be more fun to involve as many people as possible so I asked my twitter and blogging friends to join me this weekend (starting on Saturday 25/7/09) and blog for 24 hours for a good cause.

The people who have agreed to be in the group so far are:
Dave2 (of Blogography)
Katie (of Kat Scratch Fever)
Monique (of When We Were Liars)
Ruthie (of the internets in general – seriously she’s done it all and has the domains to prove it)
and me!

Anyone can still join us though! If you want to take part in Blogathon ’09 but can’t do the whole 24 hours you are welcome to be a guest blogger here for as many hours as you can or even for just one post. Just let me know. Get in touch via therapyinthemaking@gmail.com.

We will be blogging and raising money for Doctors Without Borders. You may start sponsoring us already! The donations should be made directly to the Doctors Without Borders through their website. Once you have sponsored us you will be eligible to win one of the wonderful sponsor rewards we’ll be giving out at the end of the 24 hours. These will be announced at a later time.

That’s all right now but there’s so much more to come! We’re planning some great things for you.

So excited!

Update: A couple more lovely people have volunteered to join us in this effort and will be blogging for you during Blogathon. They are:
Sodapop (of The Soda Stand)
dreimer1217 (of I’m The Loud Friend)

Update 2: The lovely MyPinkMexico (of My Pink Mexico) will be joining us too! She is preparing something very exciting for you but I’ll her explain everything when the time comes.

Lisa needs our help!

Lisa has received some bad news. She has been diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer for the third time. She has been strong and beat this twice so far. To help her through this Miss Ann has organised a fundraiser raffle. Please go over to donate or help in any way you can. It will be very appreciated.

Help send Lisa to Disneyworld

As you can see we’re trying to send her and her family to Disneyland and I’m sure between us we can all find a few quid or bucks to donate. The participation so far has been incredible but every donation counts so please do all you can. There are buttons you can use on your own blog to let more people know.

here endeth thy free for all

I extended this month’s Free For All Friday to last until a few minutes ago because I just couldn’t get enough of it but my hosting company crippled my site for a big part of this weekend (again).

I will not go into rant mode now and will put my energy into finishing this post. So, here are this month’s FFAF participants:

And here are my participations on other people’s blogs for FFAF:

Hmmm, I’d have sworn there were more entries to mention in this post. If I forgot anything please leave a comment to let me know. Thanks to everyone who participated and I hope to see you all next month for more Free For All fun (that sounded dirty didn’t it?). Until then, keep in touch!

while the blog was down

Since this blog died on Friday night I have not been able to post about things I’ve been up to here. Of course I’m still guest blogging at Pandora’s Box while the wonderful Pandora is away and this helped a little but there are things that don’t belong there and that should be here. The blog downage (it is a real word because I said it) yesterday meant that there isn’t an addition to my Mondayz Tunez this week. I will post another song next week since this is my second post for today and I don’t want to over-post.

The first and very big and awesome piece of news is that the plaid toaster has now been saved! Melanie’s blog was in danger of closing down but everyone helped and the crisis has been averted! I may not know Melanie very well but I tried to help too because that’s what I would like other people to do for me if I was ever in any trouble and I can totally understand what it feels like to be left without a outlet for your daily woes.

In other news, as promised here are links to more of my posts on Pandora’s Box:

therapy in the making is down! I. must. keep. calm.
Nothing fancy like my first guest post there so far but you can go have a read and comment too!

Moving forward in time to last night now… I went to Jacob’s Stories Album Launch Show. (Jacob’s Stories MySpace page – you can hear some of the songs here) The show was great and the other two bands there supporting Jacob’s Stories were very good also but the highlight of the night for me was the performance of Jacob’s Stories. I have photos and video from the night which I will post later or tomorrow and I got Stuart to sign my copy of the album for which I am very excited! After last night I have decided to make more of an effort to attend shows of local bands.

Today I was invited to go to an advanced screening of 27 Dresses which I decided not to go to even though I thought the film would be a good laugh. I have a lot of work to do for my final year project (which is due very soon). I will try and watch it some other time that I’ll have less to do.

This is it for now. I hope you’re having a nice Tuesday!

the end of the first FFAF for therapy in the making

Hello everyone! I am a little late in closing the FFAF for this month because I had a small culinary accident. Thanks to everyone who posted and I hope to see you next month for more guest blogging! Don’t be strangers now!
