The Vancouver Blogathon – 24 Hours of Blogging


The Blogathon is some crazy event where participating bloggers stay up for 24 hours and make a new blog post every 30 minutes. The idea is people will be impressed by your blogging commitment and make a donation to your charity of choice. I am not participating in the Blogathon because I don’t like the idea of putting a new blog post on this blog every 30 minutes. But this does not mean I’m not supporting it. I think it’s a great idea whenever bloggers get together to raise money for a worthy cause.

There are 28 bloggers taking part in the Vancouver Blogathon. This is a nice increase from the 13 that did the Blogathon in 2008. The bloggers will begin at 6AM tomorrow morning and won’t stop until 6AM Sunday morning – 24 hours of non stop blogging. If you’re looking for a flood of blog posts to read tomorrow, I recommend you check out the following Vancouver Blogathon blogs.

Beat My Blogathon Donation and Get Free Stuff

Each blog is blogging to raise money for his/her charity. I’ve donated $1,000 to Miss 604 because she’s blogging for the Union Gospel Mission and I have a soft spot in my heart for that organization. If anyone can match or beat that donation, I’ll give them a free blog post and I’ll wear their T-shirt during the Affiliate Summit East in New York next month.

I wish all the 2009 Vancouver Blogathon bloggers the best of luck. Raise a lot of money and drink a lot of coffee. You’re going to need it!
