For the second blog-a-thon, I'm keeping the format pretty much the same as last time:
- First, I start with a post (this one) to announce the blog-a-thon now.
- Then, I leave it open to participating bloggers to post something Sagan-related on their blogs sometime near December 20th (a bit late is OK); interested people without blogs or otherwise unable to post on a personal blog are encouraged to submit something to the Celebrating Sagan website (I am able to post material directly to the site, or one could contact the site's webmasters). Let me know about your posts via email or blog comment.
- Finally, on December 20th, I will post a second, separate huge "meta-post" that consists solely of links to all the participating posts.
