As some of you know I’m on the board of Band Back Together, a fantastic not-for-profit organization that showcases stories of emotional distress, physical and psychological trauma, and surviving. It also celebrates the victories we have over adversary. If you’re not a regular reader I encourage you to check it out. I’m proud to be on staff.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month.
Now, the fun news – to help the Band with their annual fundraiser I’m going to host a twenty-four hour blog-a-thon. This means that I’m going to stay up for a whole day and post each hour. Yeah, that’s twenty-four posts. I didn’t pass calculus, but by my estimation that’s twenty-three more than I generally do in a given day.
We’re still working out the particulars. I plan on having giveaways and prizes, live Google+ webchats, games, and other fun ideas.
Since there’s no way I’m going to write twenty-four quality posts in a day, I need your help.
If you have a post you’d like to submit, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m looking for posts that reflect on mental health issues preferably with a humorous tint. If you’re a blogger there’s a 93% chance you have already written such a post. Send it over.
I’ll publish it and it will get seen by thousands that day and forever immortalized on my blog. Further, if you have a book or other gift you’d like to give away, let me know!
Email me your posts and I’ll judge their worthiness.
I’l probably do a few live interviews that day to publish as podcasts. If you’d like to be interviewed about your adventures or experiences with mental illness, let me know.
