Lent!Blog! participants

I'm excited to share the news that Lent!Blog! is overtaking the whole of the internets. Seriously, the Twitter servers reserved solely for the Biebs have nothing on Lent!Blog!

The talented bloggers who have at least hesitantly committed to this strenuous project are:

Jamie of Jamie JD
Jamie is a 1L (also studying for her MPP) living in D.C. with her fiance, MW. Areas of expertise: law school, politics, domestic life, working out (homegirl's training for a marathon, in the middle of 1L), and trashy ABC family television.

Joe of Holly Was a Hoodrat
Joe is a 2L (also studying for something else at Humphrey Institute. Could be an MPP? Why can't you all just quit being such overacheivers and get one degree at a time?) Areas of expertise: law school, environmental policy, politics, lover of indie music and anything on vinyl, running, and hipster collectibles that act as homages to F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Teresa of Music of the Moment
Teresa is a fellow Badger, currently rocking the non-profit scene in NYC after a stint as a journalist in Colombia. Areas of expertise: the future of print journalism, politics, how to survive in the kidnapping capital of the world, running, pandas, and glitter.

Jenny of The Balow Bunch
Jenny is my coworker, an internet marketing rockstar who is also mother to the cutest baby I've ever seen. Areas of expertise: new motherhood, religion, politics, baseball (esp. MN Twins), marketing and social media, justifying a daily white mocha from Caribou coffee.

Greta of Adventures of Peanut Butter and Jelly
Greta is another Badger, currently rocking a much-coveted position at a huge ad agency in Minneapolis. Areas of expertise: advertising and marketing, running and working out, politics, showing major Wisco pride at all times, baking, coffee, and repping for hot redheads worldwide.

Oh and me. I'll be writing the prompts and keeping up the general enthusiasm of all participants so this doesn't fall flat after three days.

Am I missing anyone? I think these are all those who have confirmed. Thanks for jumping on my whim, amigos. If you're reading this and wishing you were a part of it, then join in! Leave your URL in the comments and I'll add you to the list.

I think I speak for everyone when I say this is going to change our lives.

You forgot pumpkin-flavored things.

So I'm doing this thing on Tumblr. Sacrilige, I know, but for some reason blogger keeps going down for me and they're short enough to be tumblr friendly :) I'll link ya.
