I’m not doing the Blogathon this year, but ***Dave is and I’d like to encourage everyone who would’ve supported me if I were doing the Blogathon to go support ***Dave instead. He’s raising money for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund this year so any of you folks who are fans of comic books yourselves should be especially motivated to go lend a hand.
I’m not doing it this year mainly because I may break down and ask for your help for myself personally in the not too distant future as my unemployment hits the 6 month stage on the 11th and a couple of unexpected bills have come along I’m not yet sure how I’m going to pay. I’m doing everything I can, though, to not have to make that request including a little freelance work this morning. I’m also not sure I’d have the creative energy at this time to do two entries an hour for 24 hours straight just now so I’ll hold off and do it next year should it come along again. In the meantime, ***Dave’s pledges are up to $240 so far and the Blogathon as a whole is up to $30,000 total for various charities. You will find directions on how to make a pledge for ***Dave in this entry at his site.
