Well, okay, not really, I’m not one to make crazy claims like a certain pundit * cough * Dick Morris * cough *. Instead I’m here to talk about a great community effort – the Netroots Nation Fall Auction which begins next Wednesday, September 19th and runs through Tuesday, September 25th.

Want to know how you can donate and get a preview of some of the items? Follow me pass the lovely orange doily….

We’ve had some great donations in the past including:

•    Governor Schweitzer’s bolo tie worn at Netroots Nation '10
•    Suites at Netroots Nation Convention hotels
•    One-on-one meetings with Howard Dean, Charlie Cook and others
•    Signed memorabilia from Barbara Boxer, Russ Feingold and more

Do you have something you can donate? You can upload it here or contact the Netroots Nation Development Director Karen Kolber at Karen at netroots nation dot org. Karen and her pack of friendly and industrious King Charles Cavaliers are standing by, ready to take your order!

Okay, here are some of the items that have already been donated for this year's auction:

•    A signed copy of The Green Collar Economy” by that hunky Van Jones
•    Gooey Butter Bars donated once again by the wonderful Goldni
•    A Front Row table at Netroots Nation 2013. Wohoo, feel the power just emanating from the stage -- right to you!

So get your auction items in today! Thanks so much, and as always, all proceeds allow Netroots Nation to bring you top-notch programming at the annual national convention and regional conferences as well as the well-received New Media Mentors program.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
