How many times do you post on your blog in a day? 5, 10 or 15 posts. How about a post every 30 minutes for 24 hours. That is what the Blogathon or Blog marathon is about.
The 2006 Blogathon will begin at 0600 Pacific Time, on July 29. During the Blogathon, bloggers 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.
And these are the rules which involves having a lot of fun while blogging away busily.
1. Each participant must post a new blog article every 30 min for the 24 hour period starting on July 26, 2002, at 6:00 AM Pacific Time.
2. Each blogger must raise at least $20 by July 21.
3. You actually have to be awake while blogging so don’t try to trick the system by using update scripts
