Announcement #2 is particularly useful to anyone living in or about to visit the state of Massachusetts. All bloggers with readerships in the area are urged to post this information. In terms of this next item, I cannot say any of this any better than Eisha and Jules over at 7-Imp. They are, after all, the women responsible for the upcoming Blogging for the Cure exercise. Because of that, I shall reproduce for you here their words about this gallery showing:
You may remember the Blogging for the Cure effort, begun in mid-September. Well, in the way of an update, all is going well. Over 150 illustrators were chosen by approximately 65 bloggers, and they will be featuring the snowflake-making illustrators (some of them, but not all of them, by any means) for the Robert’s Snow 2007 online auctions, starting October 15 and all the way up until the day before the first auction, November 18. That means that during that time, about four or five illustrators a day will be featured at various blogs, even on Saturdays and Sundays. We will all link to one another’s features so that folks can easily find which illustrator and his/her snowflake is being featured where. 7-Imp will commit to having the master schedule posted here for each day during this effort, which will last a little over a month. Remember: The goal is to drive traffic to the Robert’s Snow site so that more snowflakes will get sold to raise money in the fight against cancer.
The bloggers involved are really excited to feature these beautiful snowflakes and the artists who created them.
