Start your engines, folks! Today is the first day of the greatly anticipated BLOG OFF 2008 – a week-long contest of skill, reflex, and daring unlike any you’ve seen before. Forget that little competition happening in Beijing – this is where the real action is.
We’ve yet to receive our first challenge from the moderators (Amy Ruiz of the Portland Mercury and Corey Pein of Willamette Week), but we’re more than ready to take on the Water Blog and claim our place as victors of the blogosphere.
Instructions for you, the reader:
– The banner at the top of our page will link to all Blog-Off posts. You can show your support by voting/commenting on each PIC (Post In Competition). The moderators will read your comments and take them into account when determining the overall Blog Off winner.
– Remember to check back daily (and vote!). There will be a separate Blog Off challenge each day this week.
– You can also find all Blog-Off posts by clicking on the red BLOG OFF link just below the banner.
Instructions for our opponents, the Water Bloggers:
– Bring it on.
P.S. We’d like to give a shout out to John Solomon of In Case of Emergency, Read Blog for spreading the Blog Off news to folks in NYC and beyond.
