Blogathon 2006 (1 of 48): Hello and welcome

Published July 29, 2006

What have I let myself in for?

So, Blogathon 2006 begins and I find myself sitting in front of my laptop, tucked away at my desk, looking forward to the coming hours.

When I woke up this morning, I was concerned at the shiny, bright weather outside the window, and that perhaps I would be missing out by staying only half an hour’s distance from my laptop. Now it is pouring with rain and I am not bothered.

I am missing the final action of the qualifying for the German F1 race, but Schumacher’s doing too well so who cares?

Last night, I was all ready to give up before I’d even started. How can I possibly stay up for 24 hours? How am I going to think of that many things to talk about? No one would notice if I just backed out.

But actually, I’m looking forward to it. How often do you get to do something you love that will benefit someone else? Even if it is for 24 hours.

Plus, I wouldn’t want to waste the opportunity to show off the groovy header that the lovely Mr C designed for me. I’m not that good with pictures and stuff, so I got in the experts, and it was totally worth it.

Anyway, the scene is set and I’m ready to roll, are you with me?
