This afternoon I came across something in the #readathon hashtag on Twitter this afternoon that caught my interest (and my ire also). Somebody is also hosting a readathon that weekend and I am really upset. I realize that others do this at different times and will also do it in their own way on those days and I understand that. But my problem was that it was so blatanly publicized when I have been trying to get more people interested in the readathon. So the individual tweeted me back and asked if I could combine it with her's and eventually I said yes.
But it has got me thinking as to whether or not I should cancel it. I realize that I shouldn't be upset that somebody else is doing a readathon the same weekend, but its disappointing. I am very close to canceling my readathon, as this individual has apparently already booked the readathon hashtag. I will let you know what I decide to do, as I have a day off to think about it (its Remembrance Day here in Canada) and hopefully I can get some answers as to whether I should go forward with either canceling it or combining it with the other readathon that weekend or just to go ahead as planned and create my own hashtag for the readathon. Don't forget about the hunger readathon happening this weekend.
If you have any ideas as to what I should do, please let me know and I will take it in consideration.
