Blogathon 2005

The Blogothon 2005 is coming on Saturday August 6th. I missed the 2002 and 2003 events (there was no 2004 event) but may consider doing it this year. That said, the prospect of staying up for 24 hours solid is not something that appeals to me, so, if you’re interested in doing this as part of a team effort, please let me know 🙂 . Remember, it’s all for charidee.
(with thanks to Les)


  1. What do you have to do? Staying up for 24hours isn’t too hard at all. Plenty of coke. Sleep well the next day!

  2. I’d be in on the team thing alright. I’ve done 24 hours before and it ain’t pretty.

  3. I *might* be interested in a team effort 🙂
    But what the heck would you post about? I can only see myself rambling (even more).

  4. I did it… er.. 2003 I think, was good fun, chatting with nutters… er… bloggers the world over, the time flew in for me.
    Top tip – have at least half of your posts planned – a theme or something – and prepare some in advance, then when you hit a low you don’t need to worry too much.

  5. Damn, I’ll be away on the 6th; staying up for 24 hours, actually 🙂
    Sadly the place I’m doing that doesn’t have an internet connection.
