A few weeks ago I got wind of something called “Blogger Idol.”
It’s an online contest run by a couple of insane, obviously bored, objectively wonderful people in an effort to publicize and award some of the best blog writing on the internet.
This is the second year of the competition and after submitting an audition explaining my blog and why I’m the greatest, I find myself among the 13 finalists. Unfortunately, now I’m forced to write an assignment every week in an attempt to outlast the other 12 contestants and win it all.
Like “American Idol” itself, advancement relies on a combination of judges impressions and fans, votes. Which is where you come in.
Every week, on Wednesday afternoon, I will send out a link to the Blogger Idol page where you can read each blogger’s weekly submission and then vote on the best one. This begins TODAY:
Many of the blogs in the competition have a greater fan-base and readership than mine, so I can definitely use your help. The winner gets a Samsung Galaxy tablet and also I think a seat at the right hand of God during Armageddon, which YES PLEASE. I’d really love to have that great view and if I can get you tickets after I win, I totally will.
You can even play along and get feedback on your own version of the assignment. Hopefully you’ll vote for mine, both because it’s the best and because I’m the best, but you can vote for someone else’s too, if you don’t value my friendship.
So please, stay tuned – especially on Wednesdays when I’ll be posting the voting link – go check out the Blogger Idol page and the other awesome blogs that made the final thirteen (also in my blog roll), and help me in my quest to become 2012′s Blogger Idol!
The voting starts today! So please, click this link and go vote for me. I don’t even care if you read my entry before voting. But this week’s is about Family Traditions and mine is basically all about drinking, so I’m preeeeeeetty sure you’ll want to read it.
