Crazy Legs, part II?

Okay, it seems that the Blog Frog is officially lost. Somewhere between California and Canada, Crazy Legs got lost, stuck in customs, or ditched us to party on his own. I'm not sure what to do. I love the idea of this project, but it's a lot of work and a few people have been demanding, impatient, and sometimes downright rude. I have also spent over $40 on this project so far, which I'm not sure that I'm willing to duplicate.

SO... here is what I propose: I am willing to give my time - update the blog, maintain the list, send out emails, answer questions, etc... but I am not willing to shoulder the financial expense on my own again. If you are still interested, I am asking that you donate some money - just $1 or $2. Once we hit the $30 mark (which will be enough to buy another frog, clothe him, and mail him off), I will post here and let you know, and stop taking donations.

I don't mean to sound as though I resent this project or don't get any joy from it. It's really fun and I had a great time doing it... until things started to fall apart (people taking too long, people not posting enough, and the eventual loss of the frog). There were many people who emailed just asking where the frog was, where they were on the list, etc. - and I have NO problem with you. But those of you who sent nasty emails should be ashamed of yourselves. I maintain this site for fun and donate my time to do so. Please remember that I am doing the best I can. I have no control over what happens to the frog as he travels from person to person. You should always feel like you can email me to see where you are on the list, or if you have any questions or suggestions... but please keep the negative emails to yourselves.

So... let's start this process all over again! I'm keeping the list as it is and will pick up where we left off once we have a new frog. I think this could be fun again - let's make it happen!
