There are only a few days left in October. Which means you better be getting your Halloween costume together, this ridiculously long election cycle is almost over, and we're almost out of time in this year's DonorsChoose Blogger Challenge.
Nearly one week into the month-long Blogger Challenge, here's an update: We've got tons of great prizes, you've got a better-than-great chance of winning one if you participate, and I've got the Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Do So Today.
More about the DonorsChoose.org Challenge, how you can participate, and how you can win awesome and valuable prizes for doing so. Any more questions? Just email Susie. The Challenge runs all through October, so open those wallets for the children!
We’ve had you do all kinds of things with your Macs to win our fabulous prizes, but now it’s time to get wacky—it’s time to make toast art. This month’s prize, courtesy of the good people at Roxio, is a copy of the disc-burning wonder app Toast 9 Titanium. So check out www.blacktable.com/gillin041202.htm for inspiration, then head to the kitchen with bread, butter, maybe some foil or a homemade (oven-safe!!!) stencil, and make your own Super Awesome Patterned Toast. (Kids, make sure you check with a grown-up first!) The image you choose for your edible masterpiece doesn’t have to be Jesus, of course—because anything you dream, you can put on toast.
