View Full Version : Blogathon 2005

Hello everyone!!

Blogathon 2005 is here! and I am participating it. The event is set on the 6th August 2005. My chosen NGO as beneficiary is EDEN HANDICAP SERVICE CENTER in Penang.

Abiding with Blogathon's regulations, I will be making 1 blog post every 30 minutes for 24 hours straight. Sponsors pledge ANY AMOUNT they wish for every blog post I make during the race. At the end of the race, blogathon.org will send an email to sponsors telling them about the total post their sponsoring blog made and the total amount that they should donate. So if you pledge RM1 per blogpost, you will have to donate RM48 to Eden Handicap Service Center. As a courtesy to my friends who are not working, I will be making the minimum amount of post and that is 48 so those who are tight in the pocket may plan their budget accordingly.

The organiser, Blogathon.org, will manage and monitor the event. They do not handle the donations and sponsors will send their donations DRECTLY to the NGO so rest assured that this event is definitely LEGIT.

If you are interested to sponsor me, please reply this message or alternatively send me an email at yvonnefmn@gmail.com with any questions that you may have.

Thank you!

Hello friends

I've got great news! 6th August is drawing near and the Blogathon
fever is hiking! The organisers are buzzing around preparing for this
big event that only comes by once in every two years. A team of
monitors and translators have been set up to keep track of the race
while a new coder is hired to work in the back-end.

On my side, John Ling has decided to team up with me for the race. To
those who are new to this name, John Ling is a young Malaysian author
who already has a few books to his name. With John's kind assistance,
our participation in Blogathon will be much more exciting!

John Ling, will be blogging about his adventures to getting published.
At the ripe age of 21, John certainly has one heck of a lifetime to
blog about. This is a golden opportunity for aspiring writers to
understand more about the literary world and what it takes to pursue a
writing career. Besides, there aren't many authors out there who blogs
so this is an invaluable chance to tap into an author's blogging state
of mind! And do note that 48 posts in 24 hours straight is a
challenging task.

If you appreciate our work, please consider sponsoring us for blogathon!!

To those of you who are clueless what blogathon is, John and I will be
staying up late to blog for 24 hours straight. If you appreciate our
work, do lend your support by sponsoring us for the event. All
proceeds go to Eden Handicap Service Center in Penang, Malaysia.

For more information, please send an email to yvonnefmn@gmail.com and I'm more than willing to explain our project to you in detail. If you can't sponsor us, then please pass the word around. Your assistance goes a long way to aid the under-privileged.

Thank you.

Yvonne Foong
