A little belatedly, our thanks to all of you who attended BlogsGiving 4: North of the Cut. For the uninitiated, BlogsGiving is a free-form annual blog meetup and fundraiser for Northwest Harvest. This year BlogsGiving raised $432 and cans for the area’s hungry people, and our generous host Pies & Pints is also donating a portion of their proceeds from the evening, raising the total to around $700! A new record. (You can add to it by donating online!)
This year, the festive do-gooders at Roosiehood, Ravenna Blog, and My Green Lake helped us in putting the party on–one of the reasons we hold BlogsGiving is that until we all gathered at Pies & Pints on November 19, despite years of Weekend-Wrap blog-headline-trawling, I hadn’t actually met any of them in person before.
Wallyhood, Eastlake Ave., Seattle Transit Blog, and Seattle’s social media power couple, Jason Preston and Monica Guzman, piled in as well. I know I’m missing more people, forgive me and my failing memory. (I have to note that Preston gets a producer’s credit for my hand turkey drawing, and that The SunBreak is now in possession of an official “Guzman,” which we’re going to be holding on to as an appreciating asset.)
UPDATE: Left off the blogroll, though not in our hearts, was the entire Capitol Hill Seattle blog enterprise: Justin Carder, his wife Kristin, and their two news elves, one of whom slept through most of the event, but we forgive. Now forgive me for the oversight. Do it.
Happy holidays, everyone!
