I guess the pressure was too much for some bloggers, because during the past few minutes that I’ve been surfing and commenting I did see a few blogs on which the owners basically said, “Sorry, I can’t do this anymore – it was fun though. Maybe next year!”
I remember for Blogathon 2003 I would see a post from someone thinking about stopping because they hadn’t received any sponsors, and I doled out a lot of money during the night to encourage those folks to continue. Most did, but a couple folks ended up quitting. I still donated to their charities though.
Of course, that was when we had money to spare – now we’re broke and I can’t afford to do that anymore. *lol*
