Today's the day. We mark yet another Follow Eric Blogathon.
I'm especially excited for this Blogathon because it has all the fun components I love about a Blogathon like coffee, music and keeping it local but it also has a great charitable cause to support.
This Blogathon is a shoe drive supporting Soles4Souls, a great Nashville-based shoe distribution charity. I've set up shop at a local café - Davinci's Coffeehouse - and I'll be collecting new or gently used shoes all day long.
As a bonus, you'll get 50% off your drink order for donating. That's a pretty awesome deal and huge thanks to Davinci's for making this generous offer.
And to celebrate later in the evening, we'll have live acoustic music from some local musicians - including Raquel Carlson, Duncan Mathew, Corey Keller and, well, even me.
So if you're in town, come any time today with your shoes for the discount. If you want to catch the music, come between 5 and 9 p.m. or you can catch us broadcast live via Ustream. Watch the broadcast embedded right here on Follow Eric or on the Facebook page. Download the free Ustream app and you can watch from your iPhone or iPad.
So rummage through your closets and find a pair to share with people in need. Bring it in, get some coffee and keep me company!
