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.

  1. good luck mate! i wish i could say i’d join but i’ve got the surgery coming up and a bbq on sunday for it. ๐Ÿ˜€ good luck, i’ll try to see what’s going on!

    are you gonna at least do some stickam time? i think that would be fun i can show up for a bit myself i think. i only have dialysis on saturday so my schedule is pretty open.
    .-= yoshiยดs last blog ..The big day =-.

  2. @yoshi: Thank you so much! It will be very nice to hear from you during Blogathon but don’t worry if you need your rest. You are also welcome to do a guest post at any point if you feel like it and have the strength. Then you will be able to say that even after having to do dialysis and preparing for such a serious surgery you STILL participated in Blogathon! ๐Ÿ˜†

    That’s how you become a Blogosphere God my friend. :mrgreen:

  3. @Danalyn: I can only speak for myself at the moment. It’s up to the rest of the guys if they want to do it too but I’ll probably be on stickam for most of it. As long as I am decent (and not blogging in the nude) I’ll have the stickam on the sidebar on mute but there will be a chat facility on the sidebar too if what I am trying to do works. It depends on how much I can get done tomorrow. Stickam didn’t work so well last time I tried it and I’d rather the chats go straight to my IM instead of another website. I want to be clutter free for as long as possible because I don’t want to overload my brain during Blogathon. I will pretty braindead by the end of it anyway.

    Hey, if you want to do a guest post let me know on the day (or right now if you know what time you’ll be around)! Kyle too!

  4. I know you’re all excited and everything but, you might want to also use the word: “Saturday” at some point for anyone that’s too lazy to check out the website.

    Well, starting at 6 a.m. Pacific time should allow you to sleep-in pretty dog-gone late on Saturday so, you definitely might wanna re-schedule your insomnia from Friday nite to Saturday nite. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ OK?
    Good luck!

  5. @Etienne: Oops! Yeah… I forgot. Updated the blog post now. Thanks for the advice. Yes, it will be starting at 2pm here but I have things to do that morning anyway so I won’t be able to sleep late. At least I have all these lovely people doing it with me this year so we can share the blogging time and not get all burned out by the end of it. See you on Saturday? ๐Ÿ˜†

  6. I don’t know what the rest of my day looks like yet, but I can hop on Stickam while I’m here ๐Ÿ™‚ You guys can watch me play WoW or something rofl ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. @Monique: Hi Monique! So happy to have you here with us! This will be very exciting and the plan is to have a great time! I will be dropping by your blog later too.

    @Katie: Hahaha! Well if you want me to put up the embeddable stickam on the sidebar just email me the code and I’ll put it up for you. xx
