This Weekend: A Camels With Hammers Blogathon

This weekend, I am going to seize an opening in my busy teaching schedule to get myself back into a writing habit by doing a blogathon. I am not going to prioritize quantity over quality and I am not going to make this about endurance without sleep or anything so pointless. Instead, here’s what I will do: both Saturday October 19 and Sunday October 20 I will post a new article every two hours from 8am-8pm. Every new post will be written between Friday night 8pm and Sunday night 8pm. This will yield 14 worthwhile posts on a range of topics.

Starting now and throughout the blogathon I will be inviting fans of my efforts at Camels With Hammers to make donations (using paypal you can donate to dfincke at aol dot com). The more money I make from the blog, the less other jobs I need to supplement my income and the more I can write here. As is the longstanding policy, if you donate $100 or more, I will write on a topic of your choosing (so long as it’s something about which I am qualified to speak reasonably intelligently).
