Blogathon: The Final Word

Last November I held the Scottish Football Blog's first - perhaps only - blogathon.

One post an hour for 24 hours with topics chosen on Twitter and by fellow bloggers.

All in aid of two fantastic charities: Alzheimer Scotland and the Homeless World Cup.

24 hours, a few energy drinks, too many cigarettes and 17,000 words later and I was done.

I'd set a target of £250 for each of the two charities and broke both those targets.

That was hugely appreciated. As was the support I got from Twitter and elsewhere.

You can still read all the posts from the day and other related posts here.

You can find out about the great work done by Alzheimer Scotland here and by the Homeless World Cup here.

And, again, thanks to everyone who got involved, donated, shouted encouragement.

One final favour - donations to the blogathon will close on the 17th of January.

So if you can find it in your post-Christmas wallets and purses to add a little extra to either charity then that would be just swell.

Thanks again,
Tom
