What Do I Do If…

22 Oct

Rah Rah Cheerleaders! I hope you’re all feeling perky today!

There have been some questions about what to do if you encounter a protected Twitter or Facebook account, any account on a site where you do not have an account and therefore can’t cheer for someone. Here’s what you do.

In the first case, where few or no cheerleaders will be able to cheer for the person in question, please send a DM (@TriniCapini) or email (trishsreadingnook at gmail dot com) to Trish and she’ll make a note of this on the reading list.

In the second case, where only you can’t cheer for the person, please feel free to skip them as you make your rounds.

Have an awesome day of reading and cheering!


Team Hashtags, Anyone?

20 Oct

Care had a fun idea: squads could use hashtags to find one another on Twitter! So! To get some team pride going, use these in your tweets:

Why these hashtags in particular? A couple of reasons:

  1. They had to be short! Especially if you’re including the #readathon hashtag too. So, we nixed full team names.
  2. #team___ is pretty common, but #cheer___ is not. Searches for these hashtags on Twitter turned up nothing, so they’re all ours!
  3. If you forget your team’s hashtag and don’t want to come back here, the formula is easy: # + cheer + the first word in your team’s name. Simple!

Have fun with these, guys! Let’s make this an awesome event!!

Welcome, October ’11 Cheerleaders!

Hi cheerleaders!

Thanks for signing up to cheer with us. (Haven’t signed up? You can do that on the main Read-A-Thon site.) We’re glad you’re here! Take a look around the site — there’s lots of good info. As we get closer to the Read-A-Thon, you’ll receive an email assigning you to a particular cheering squad, but don’t worry about that for now.

If you’d like a button for your blog, feel free to grab one from the sidebar. And if you have any questions, send one of us an email using the addresses below.

Your Read-A-Thon Cheer Captains,
