It's again time to be a responsible amateur blogger. Responsible amateur blogging, in my opinion, involves routinely steering people to blogs written by professionals and experts. I'm happy to do that today for a very good cause.

World-class climber Alan Arnette is currently trekking to Mt. Everest Base Camp. Everest is the third of seven summits he is climbing this year to raise funds for Alzheimer's research. He is documenting the adventure via blog posts, tweets, images and audio.

If you've never followed an Everest expedition in real time, Mr. Arnette's quest is ideally suited for newcomers and casual observers. His site is rich with great content. Personally, I can attest that following a climber's attempt to summit Everest takes on the same excitement and suspense of any spectator sport. It's even more worthwhile when you follow someone who is climbing for a good cause. So here is a link to a blog post that is well worth the read:
