As a result of some frenzied, back-and-forth tweeting on a Friday night, my friends Kelcie, Erin and I decided to embark on a competition designed to better us as writers and, to a lesser extent, narcissistically stoke our own writerly egos: Blog Wars 2012. The rules are simple: basically, the person with the most blog posts by next Sunday night is the victor. Posts are required to be of a substantial length (300 words, with the exception of creative pieces, which can be shorter) and cannot be intentionally subpar. Additionally, each participant must guest post on each of their fellow participants’ blogs to actually be crowned Most Prolific Blogger.
Hopefully, the results of this challenge will be some really quality musings on the nature of life, humanity and the world at large. Ah, who am I kidding? I’ll just be posting more thoughts on why McKayla is Not Impressed and Derp Ryan Lochte are some of the funniest memes all year, complete with some jokes, links and parentheses. (Real or not real? REAL.) But seriously: stay tuned to Act IV (Erin), On The Fringes (Kelcie) and l’il ol’ me for what I’m sure will be a blog-filled week to remember. And may the best chicken win.
