This is Bridget Zinn. She's a librarian and YA author who was diagnosed in 2009 with Stage IV colon cancer. A bunch of generous folks have donated and bid on items in an online auction to raise money to help Bridget with her medical expenses.

The auction's underway now (it ends on December 4th). If you'd like to bid on a cool gift for yourself or someone you love, you'll find well over a hundred items up for auction by clicking here.

Monday, December 6th [eta: temporarily postponed] is the start of WOTWAY? Week (Where On The Web Are You? Week) here on An Englishman in New Jersey. I'll be inviting folks to share online links to their websites; Amazon pages; favorite entries from their blog, stories or other work they've published online etc.

I haven't finalized the details yet, so don't send me any links for now. I just thought I'd give you a headsup, so those who'd like to take part can start thinking about what they'd like to share. 

Now I'm off to Palmer, Pennsylvania, to give a 1-hr presentation on blogging (followed later by a 2-hour workshop on the same subject) for the excellent folks at GLVWG. Wish me luck

Have a great day everyone!
