When Janelle Welch over at NOVADog Magazine asked me to participate in a blogathon I thought “Wow – blogging for 16 hours? On a Saturday? Really?” But, when I found out that the proceeds were going to help find a cure for canine cancer, I knew that it was something that I had to do.
So while I might throw in a thing or two about beer today, I’ll mostly be devoting Chicks Love Beer to the dogs and helping raise awareness about canine cancer and my personal story of why its important to me and my family.
But it’s not all seriousness here today – I’ll also be giving away some sweet swag every hour, giving a shout out to some folks who are supporting the cause and connecting with you through your comments, Facebook and Twitter. Just ping me!
And since this a “blogathon” i.e. fundraiser, please consider making a donation, large or small, to help fight canine cancer by using the Chip-In box to the right. Every little bit helps.
Snag a Prize!
I have a ton of stuff to give away today, so let’s get the party started with a NOVADog T-shirt and Annual Subscription to NOVADog Magazine donated by (you guessed it)…NOVADog Magazine! Just leave a word of encouragement in the comments below to help me kick off this long day of blogging and I’ll pick a winner at random. Don’t worry – there are so many more prizes to come today.
And as a BONUS, NOVADog will be giving away an Amazon Kindle at the end of the event (and no, you don’t have to stay up until 2AM to win it!)
I’m off to get some caffeine, see if I can get the hubby to make me some breakfast and let the dogs out (with 6 dogs – this will be an ongoing theme during the day!)
I’ll be here all day – next show’s at 9AM – don’t forget to tip your waitress.
