What happened in October
October was the busiest month I’ve ever written on Sugarbutch, with 48 posts. Much of that came because I was part of 8 Against 8, where 8 lesbian bloggers wrote for 8 days against Proposition 8 in California, raising as much money as we could.

- And last, but not least, at the end of October, I was able to give away 10 copies of the L Word Season 5 as a way (for the PR folks for the show) to begin hyping the last season of the L Word. (ps, here’s the winners.)
