Dear great apes, lesser apes, monkeys, prosimians–one and all–Monkey Day 2010 is upon is in 10 more days. In order to celebrate this fantastic holiday, This is Serious Monkey Business will be going all out for this. Here are some of the details of what I plan on doing for Monkey Day 2010–all are welcome!
Monkey Day Blog Carnival: I’ll be hosting a one-day (annual?) blog carnival specifically about primates, be it: conservation, behavior, photography, anthropology (cultural, archaeology, and linguistics are totally welcomed!), zoology, psychology, short stories, personal stories related to primates–whatever you are willing to send in will be on here.
Guest Blogging/Battle of the Primate Blogs?: So this one depends heavily on my fellow bloggers–for those interested, I was thinking of having a guest blogger every day for a week up until the event. Each day, an individual could have a post about a primate conservation issue (be it an organization, issue concerning conservation, whatever) where they fundraise for primate conservation and the winner gets to choose which charity organization to donate the raised funds towards. Unfortunately, I’m on a very tight schedule as finals are rapidly approaching so I will definitely need some help on this one if others are interested.
I’m totally open to other ideas from any other interested people out there, but if you’re definitely interested, you’re welcome to post on this entry or you can e-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org about any ideas.
