And the Blogathon is over! Ahahahaha, success! Not once did I fall asleep, and I'm sure I only humiliated myself a couple of times rather than constantly. And more importantly...

We raised $449.32 for the Secular Student Alliance!

Thanks to everyone who helped out: Everyone who donated money, PZ and Hemant and the SSA for spreading the word, my friends Mark and Vanessa for keeping me company and helping me with guest posts, and the commenters who helped keep me up with their wit and insights, especially Andre Vienne and Veritas, who were insane and wonderful enough to stay up all night and comment on every post.

But while my part of the Blogathon is over, yours isn't necessarily. You can still go here to pledge a donation to the SSA until Friday the 31st. Maybe you want to give a dollar for every post you loved. Maybe you want to give 68 cents so we're not dealing with decimals anymore. Or maybe you just know someone who would enjoy one of the posts - spread the word, and maybe they'll consider pledging!

Thanks again, everyone! Now if you excuse me, I'm going to go sleep for a very long time.


  1. Well done, Jen. Now sleep. Sleeeeeeeep. You did great. Catch you on the flip side.

  2. You did it! Yaaaaaay!

    Now get some of the good-sleep. I will probably do the same. Or play some MGS3, because I think I'm paranoid enough to make it utterly terrifying, and that could be totally fun.

    *flag waaaave!*

  3. Well played!! I was thinking good thoughts at you during work today :) Keep us posted on the figures for the SSA -- I for one would really like to see it reach an even $500 and would gladly chip in a bit more!

  4. Congratulations! I will miss this

  5. Oooh, Team America just finished downloading. I will miss this in a couple of hours. I hope you can sleep

  6. Congratulations! Though I didn't stay up all through it, it was still quite awesome!

  7. Congrats for getting through it Jen and for raising such a nice chunk of money for a good cause :)

    Sorry couldn't stick around and keep you company for the whole thing, but it seems Andre and Veritas had more than enough to say :P

    Hope you got some well deserved sleep :)
