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.
You can check out the blog at: http://a-homesteading-neophyte.blogspot.com
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 http://www.farmaid.org/badge/.
