Blog-Off 2010: Round Two Results

Round Two is in the books and, as expected, we saw some great work by our contestants this time around.  Our top two vote-getters were Life According to Candice and 365 Days of People with 25% and 15% of the vote, respectively. 

Once again, though, we have to eliminate our bottom two.  Sadly, this week we say goodbye to:

Confessions of a Reforming Geek:  "Reffie", as she's known in the blogosphere, put forth a great effort this week, but unfortunately it was not enough to keep her in the running.  Don't let that stop you from visiting her site regularly, it's always worth the trip.

Mr. Condescending:  Although it's still early in the competition, this is one elimination that can truly be called an "upset".  I had Mr. C pegged as a shoo-in for at least the Final Four, but alas, it was not to be.  Apparently his 300-plus followers couldn't be bothered to come over and vote, and for that they should be strung up by their least comfortable regions and flogged.  Mr. C, we hardly knew ye.

All right then.

Round Three of our Blog-Off starts this coming Sunday, January 17th.  The category for this round is Parody, which is sure to inspire hilarity among our contestants.  Details, links, and the voting ballot will be posted here on Knucklehead! on Sunday at 9:00 Pacific Time.

Good luck to our contestants!

I will send Cat to torture Mr. Condescending's followers. Shame on them for not voting.

Good luck to the remaining contestants.

"Oh, Candice...I have a Chick-fil-A chicken nugget here for ya!"

Sorry...just trying to distract her long enough so I can possibly make it to the next round. ;)


Congratulations to those who advanced and I'm sorry that a couple had to leave. But at least I've found some great new blogs I can read.

This contest was indeed a fabulous idea...if for nothing else, bringing all these writers (and not just the competitors) together in one place. :)

What the eff. I thought Mr. C would stay in for sure. Ah well.

Mariann- Don't. do. it. You'll end up with a fist in the kisser and broken fingers that will prevent you from blogging. Just put. the nugget. down.

I would like to additionally tip my hat to Reforming Geek-- she's a funny lady, a good soul, and if I HAD a hat, it would probably make the honor even more meaningful. I'm sure I'll be voted off the island next week, so if you can save that bottle of virtual wine we discussed, I'll be there soon for a glass of it. :)

Can't EVEN believe Mr. C didn't advance. My day is ruined.

Candice said...

Did someone say chicken nugget????

Eva Gallant said...

So glad you are conducting this contest. I might never have seen these blogs, otherwise!

Mr. Condescending said...

Yeah WTF! 343 followers and they all decided to leave me stranded.

I guess I should have hammered them more to vote for me but I really didn't want to just push people to vote for me blindly.

I'm already planning how to extract revenge.

Awesome contest though Mr Knucklehead.

*shedding tears*

My Reffie? She's out?

But Reffie you know you'll always be my number one idol!

*sobs*

Insert huge Paula Abdul seal slap here. And that includes you Mr. C!

Hannah Miet said...

I am trying not to sob.

The word "sob" is weird on it's on.

Sobbing!

I voted for you, Mr.C.

This has been a difficult contest to vote on. All the bloggers are wonderful, funny , entertaining and just all around a great read. It's difficult to choose between them. Congrats to those still in the running and it is by no means goodbye to those who aren't.

Knucklehead, you've brought us some great new blogs for our blogroll. Thanks for that.

Now on to round #3. We're looking forward to reading more.
