Guess who’s blogger back.
Blogger back again.
Blogger Blitz is blogger back.
Tell your blogger friends.
– Adveninemture Rules
Last year saw the inaugural edition of a contest for the ages, a battle of bloggers and titanic gaming champions in a bid to discover who would reign supreme as the victor of a series of arbitrary but extremely awesome challenges: THE BLOGGER BLITZ.
Ian over at Adventure Rules, a very cool feller with a very cool blog, challenged a set of WordPress community friends to pick a gaming character to represent them and then guide that character through up to three rounds of head-to-head battles against another member of the community. We had Indiana Jones take on FFXIII‘s Lightning Farron in a sales-and-marketing-off; Claire Redfield from Resident Evil battled Monkey Island’s Guybrush Threepwood to deliver mail; Mega Man and a Pokémon Ranger created epic music tracks complete with videos – suffice to say, it was pretty epic.
I covered the action as it happened (see some of my recaps of the events here and here), and I also got to participate in a unique and rewarding way by being a judge of the events. This meant that I got to read each and every fantastic entry from all of the competitors and submit my reasoning as to who I thought should be the victor of each round, and I am exceptionally glad that I took part in this way.
When Ian announced that there was going to be a Blogger Blitz II – bigger, better, bloggier, and blitzier than before – I knew I had to take part again. This time, though I loved being a judge last time, I decided that I wanted to be in a different role, and so I have just submitted my interest in being a participant over at the sign-up post. Hopefully I’ll make it in, and get to take part in at least one really cool event!
Go check it out, sign yourself up to be a competitor or a judge (honestly, there are great reasons that you’d want to be in either role, and I bet you’ll have a great time whatever position you take!), and look forward to seeing what this Blitz holds! I can’t wait!
