Final countdown

We're just a day away from Buck-a-Hit Day on this blog -- the day on which, for every visitor to this site, my family and I will give $1 to charities that fight hunger here in Oregon. Please plan to come back between 12:01 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. PST tomorrow, Wednesday, and help us reach our goal of $1,000.

And if you've got a blog or other means of plugging this event, please do so! As we review our progress, we'll be making favorable mention of our referral sources.

I'm aware that there's a danger of people out there throwing a monkey wrench into the day with multiple hits, especially through the use of automated programs that just keep hitting the blog repeatedly from the same source. If you are tempted to do that, please don't! I'll be trying to use Site Meter and my blogging software to weed such hits out of the total anyway.

If you go away and come back more than an hour later, however, that will count as two hits. And I'll try to put up several new posts throughout the day to make it worth your while to come back.

That is very generous of you guys. I'm wondering, are you capping it at $1,000, or is that just a goal (and so you'll willingly go above and beyond it)?

It's such a great idea and everyone needs a little help during the holidays...you and your family are good people!

I will be glad to announce your buck-a-hit day over on my site.

We're capping at $1,000 -- we're not that rich.

I'll funnel my enormous readership here. Oughta be good for three or four bucks.

Heh yeah. Let me know if any of my readers get here.

I hope you get your 1,000 hits today. Good luck .... I emailed all of my contacts and asked them to visit your site. We may live in Maine, but we're happy to feed the hungry in Oregon. Happy Holidays.
