My first $5.00 donation arrived this weekend (thanks Matt R.!) and it made me realize that maybe there is hope, but that I’m going to have to work even harder for your support to attend this conference. So, as a complement to my fundraising efforts, I am also planning a “blog-a-thon” in which I will write a post every single day until I’ve received enough donations to attend the Beer Blogger’s conference.
Those of you who know my current work/life situation, this is no small task. I currently leave my house at 7:30 am, and return somewhere around 7:30 pm. I also spend a total of two hours of driving each week day, so I have plenty of time to think about posts, but not to write them. Well, I’m making the time now – and I’ll write one every single day. If you have suggested topics (I’m sure I’m going to need some next week) please feel free to leave them in the comments.
Attending the Beer Blogger’s Conference is very important to me – as I rarely (if ever) get a chance to interact with fellow beer writers from other parts of our country. I think we could all learn a lot from each other – so I am hoping that this will be yet another opportunity that I’d get to interact with the craft beer blogging community. So blog-a-thon posts start tomorrow (or today if I get really ambitious!).
Thanks very much for your support – I look forward to hearing your post ideas!!
