For anyone wondering what to do about donations here is what I have always done on my event blog:

  • I create a list in a sidebar (if your blog has this feature), even if just text based.
  • When I received confirmation from a sponsor, usually be email, I tallied them in the list.
  • I list a screen name for each sponsor (even just first name) and the dollar amount.
  • Then I just keep a running tally of the amounts.
  • After the event, I send emails to ask that the sponsors honour their pledge amount.
