Well, it’s now almost 7am on the morning after Blogathon. The last post went up an hour ago.
It was different this year. In some ways, it almost seemed more like those early years, back in 2003 when the participants were much more connected and working together across several blogs. But, at the same time, it seemed there were much fewer comments all around, not just on our posts but in the posts of those I was assigned to as a monitor as well.
The most surreal part might be the fact I’m still up and not feeling like I need to sleep at all. I realize by noon I’ll probably be taking Mt. Dew in through IV. But, I feel strangely energized.
Even with all the last minuteness of some plans, the distraction of personal flailing over losing six months worth of writing, and spending Friday mostly laying around with a migraine, there was a marked decrease in my stress levels this year, I think. And that may have made all the difference.
Whatever the case, I feel fantastic this morning. A little stiff from sitting at the computer so long, but fantastic.
We had very few players for trivia. So, we’re leaving that open through tomorrow night. Please, please, feel free to head on over and try your hand at some of them. With all the Potter fans on my f-list, at least ONE question should get answered already! LOL
The list of questions still open can be found here: https://esoteric-renaissance.com/2009_thon_48_unanswered_trivia/
And with that, if I disappear for a few days, it’s because I need a break from the computer screen. I’ll be back by week’s end, I’m sure.
Also, if anyone still wants to sponsor us, knowing that we completed the 24 hours, sponsorships are open until July 31st and we’re only $90 shy of our $500 goal. ;-D
For kicks, I posted several quick and dirty snapshots of various outfits I was wearing at one point during the event. I’ve included those for your amusement.
