... first and foremost, the Blogathon team for putting this together.
... my 211 co-blogathonians. You all made this a lot more fun. So much to see, so little time! And what great team spirit - everybody cheering each other on, dropping by for support, coffee, tea, and chocolates (I may actually have some blood back in my sugar by now. Not entirely sure though). So nice to meet you all! I wish I'd had more time to hang out at your sites. Can we make it a 48 hour blogathon next time? (Just kidding!)
... 2387 sponsors, donating a total of $58446.24. Wow!
... my chosen charity, Heifer International, for having a cow, and giving it to someone who needs it.
... everybody who sponsored me. You helped me raise $250 for Heifer International. That's
... half a heifer
... a water buffalo
... two goats
... two sheep
... two pigs
... four tree seedlings
... four rabbits
... eight bee hives
... twelve chicks
... twelve ducks
... or twelve geese
... everybody who even considered sponsoring me. Your support is much appreciated, whether it was monetary or just a note saying "I don't have money to spare right now, but what a great idea! You go grrrl!"
... everybody who surfed by my blog during the blogathon, left a comment, laughed, rolled their eyes, or got the hell out of this weird wired neighborhood.
Thanks for a great run!
