Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Just wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Like most everyone else, I'll be slacking off the blogging a bit for the rest of the year. The Top 25 will be up as usual on Weds., and I'll possibly have another couple of posts later this week, but that's about it.

I will be spending more time on Twitter this week, so if you want to follow me, click here and I'll follow you too!

BTW Drew has a great example of how social media is being used to spread holiday giving with the story of the Frozen Pea Fund! And kudos to Troy for starting the massive list of Outstanding Blogs, which gives us all a bit of Holiday link-love!

UPDATES: Drew gives a great update on how much money has been raised so far from sales of The Age of Conversation, and tells us where the money will be going.

Also, Katie has a great post about This is a word game set up by the United Nations that donates 20 grains of rice every time you select the correct definition of each word. And it's completely free. So play for a few minutes and see how many grains of rice you can donate to feed others!

Hey Mack,

Happy day after!


Mack Collier said...

Thanks for the Holiday Wishes everyone (and a gold star to Lisa remembering the day after!). Remember that if you want your blog's URL to show up with your comment, click on 'Nickname', then type in your blog's URL. That way when you comment, we can click on your name and go to your blog, instead of your Blogger profile page.

Looking forward to a GREAT 2008, hope ya'll will be along for the ride!
