SSA Week Day 6/7: My Picks
Today's the last day of SSA Week, and the end is in sight! At the time of this writing, we've raised just over $88,000 out of a target of $100,000. We can do this, people! If you haven't donated yet, now's your chance: get out your credit card, click this link, and become a donor by giving whatever you can to support an excellent secular organization empowering atheist students. I have a special offer for people who donate today, about which I'll say more later. But first, here are my favorites from the previous blogathons.

And as for Friday, there were four participating bloggers! My picks:
Blue Collar Atheist writes about the ever-increasing mental list of our beloved dead, and how the deaths of loved ones makes us more conscious and appreciative of the joys of being alive.
And now, here's my special offer. As I mentioned earlier, I have a major blog announcement that's going to drop later this month. Last week, something extremely cool, something that's going to play a big part in this announcement, arrived in my inbox. If you want to see what it is, click here to contribute, and then leave a comment or send an e-mail letting me know. You'll get in on the big secret early!
