Each year a band of crazy bloggers from all walks of life take 24 hours out of their lives to spend the day blogging, a new post every 30 minutes for 24 hours.  No sleep, no auto-posts, no pre-writing.  Everything written on the fly as they go.

Why do they do this?

To raise money for the charities of their choosing, those causes near and dear to their hearts.  Each blogger gathers sponsors who pledge to give their monetary support to the effort should the blogger fulfill his/her commitment and complete all 49 posts over the coarse of 24 hours.

This year, that day begins at 6am SLT on July 25, 2009 and ends at 6am SLT on July 26, 2009.

For the seventh year in a row, I will be participating in this event and for the third year in a row I will be raising money for The Association for International Cancer Research in doing so.

I realize Second Life residents are just finishing with the Relay for Life events of the last several months.  But, if you could find it in your hearts to spare even a  few dollars for a good cause, it would be greatly appreciated.

I will be blogging from my RL blog, Esoteric Renaissance, at  I will be joined this year by my mother, who was the inspiration for my choosing AICR as the beneficiary of my efforts back in 2006.  If you click on the link to that site, you can read my post on why I support AICR and how I came to be involved with them both through Blogathon and in Second Life.

If you would be interested in sponsoring us, please click on the banner at the top of this post and register to submit a pledge.  Alternatively, I can submit proxy sponsorships for those who do not wish to register.  Just let me know.

Additionally, I will be hosting a Blogathon Party at Caledon Westmoreland that day.  Details of which are below:

Date/Time: July 25th 8am SLT – July 26th 6am SLT (yes, 22 hours total)
Where: Caledon Westmoreland, residential side (although guests may decide to wander into the Nature Preserve at some point)
Invited Guests: Any and all, with luck there will be several Blogathon Participants from various realms in attendance
Theme: Relaxed, very relaxed the theme I will be writing on is a ‘virtual slumber party’ so guests may either come garbed in Caledonian standards or not

Needs: Guests are only obligated to bring their beautiful selves, although any DJs who wish to spin during the event please feel free to contact me. We’ll need music desperately once hour 16 hits!
