Welcome to Knucklehead's "Blog-Off 2010"!


Just for a bit of fun, and to shine a light on some of the best humor blogs out there right now, I'll be hosting a six-week Blog-Off competition.  Every Sunday, from January 3rd through February 7th, our contestants will post their entry and you, the readers, will be asked to vote for your favorite (the ballot is displayed on my sidebar here at Knucklehead!).  Posts go up on Sundays, and the voting each week ends Wednesday mornings.  Each round will feature a different writing genre, to recognize cleverness and versatility.  Please take some time to read our entries and vote for your favorite!

The topic for Round One is satire on a current event.  Here are the contestants, and the link to their entries:

365 Days of People
Blogged Down at the Moment
Life According to Candice
Mr. Condescending
Of Cabbages and Kings
The Reforming Geek
The Surly Writer
Too Many Mornings
Welcome to My Life
The Wizard of Otin

After you've checked out their work, come back to Knucklehead! and vote over in my sidebar, no later than Wednesday, January 6th.  The bottom TWO vote-getters will be eliminated, and results will be posted Wednesday evening.

Good luck, contestants!

Since you asked, I think in order to participate in this esteemed competition, the blog needs to provide a FULL RSS feed.
Neener.

I think all my faithful readers keep accidentally voting for Candice and Mr. Condescending.

Nomad said...

why are people so confused by this?

ReformingGeek said...

So do Candice and Mr. Condescending have big boobs or what?

Just kidding. I think I need to start begging!

This is such a great idea!

Scott Oglesby said...

My vote goes out for Candice! That girl is the funniest thing to hit the internet since Diesel!

Donna said...

Nobody is funnier than Candice. Of course I only read her blog to remind myself that I am still capable of blushing at age sixty-five.

As contests go, this should be interesting. No way I'm going to win.

Dave "Loose Cannon" Wills said...

This is such an amazing idea! Great job!

Definitely reading all the first round entries right now...

I am so f***in' glad I declined to enter this competition. Far too many funny people. Whoever gets eliminated, it's nothing to be ashamed of.
