I survived 24 hours of blogging!


Well if you followed along or checked in after my 24 hour marathon blogging stunt for charity, you'll see that I made it to the end. As promised, I've mirrored my Project Blog posts from hiptop Nation to my server. Click here, or on the image above to see all the posts. I re-arranged the posts in forward chronological order and changed the Pacific time stamps to Eastern. I also cleaned up a couple broken links, minor typos and lightened some of the dark images.

At the end of the 24 hours, I had raised $435 for the Alzheimer's Association, but on Sunday, I pursuaded my mother-in-law to donate $66 to push me over to $501! If you pledged via the Project Blog site, I commend you for making it through their wacky sponsoring process. Their system will soon notify you on how to make the actual donation. If you haven't heard anything by the end of the week, please let me know. And it's still not too late to donate!

Basically my marathon day was about photography, family and fighting sleep for a good cause. I got a fresh perspective on blogging/moblogging by having to keep to a rigid schedule. Thirty minute intervals are short enough that you can never really forget that you're blogging. By the wee hours, I had to make a checklist of things to blog about. Someone asked today if I would do it again. I answered yes, but now I think when this comes around again in a year, I'll say "been there done that."

I did the 24 hour blog too! Upon looking at others' sites, I realized most people sat at their desks and blogged, unlike you and I who moblogged, meaning we could carry out our day as usual...we just had to stay up very very long! Me too, it was fun. I plan to write up about it; I'm very glad I did it.
