Jeni says support the blogathon

Phelan over at “A Homesteading Neophyte” will once again be blogging for Farm Aid in the 2007 Blogathon. On July 28, she will start blogging for 24 hours straight with a new entry posted every 30 minutes. She’ll be asking readers to show their support (and keep her awake!) by posting comments and pledging donations to Farm Aid.

Farm Aid is chipping in to support the marathon session by providing the Homesteading Neophyte a Willie t-shirt and Farm Aid CD to give away to the highest donor.

And if you’re new to the blogathon idea, we found this helpful description on the 2007 Blogathon site:

“Now, remember when you were in school and you would bowl for charity? And for every pin you knocked down you got, say, ten cents? Or run for a dollar a mile? During the Blogathon, people update their websites every 30 minutes for 24 hours straight. For this, they collect sponsorships. Pledges can be a flat donation, or a certain amount for every hour the blogger manages to stay awake.”

P.S. This is probably a good time to mention that we now have a Farm Aid badge available for you to use on your own blog. It’s available at
