King of Commenting Competition – And it Begins…
Move over New York, your Yankees may be the 2009 World Series Champion, but do forgive us if Not in HD forgets to send a congratulatory card. We have a king to crown.
For the next week our eight participants will compete against one another by commenting on any blogs or columns of their choosing. New articles, old articles, who cares? Just bring quality work to the table and you’ll be fine.
The question our contestants will be kicking themselves over is the age-old, “Quality or quantity?” decision.
Make it a double. Go for broke. Evaluation will be given based on how good the posts are, but if two commenters are neck and neck by next Thursday (November 12th), the edge will be given to the person who manned-up and split his aces, with a few extra comments.
Your contest judge? Me. My Chief Advisor will be Britton Dennis. And don’t think the big man doesn’t have sway. Keep it in mind when writing your zingers.
Six weeks ago I unveiled our first five participants:
wstuchell (Chosen by Dan because he’s fond of all things oriental. Which makes this odd, since this guy is just an ordinary American masquerading in Korea.)
dwdowning619 (Cory choice and known as the San Diego homer.)
stewmangi (Britton’s pick, who isn’t cool enough to have an alias.)
rootman34 (Nick’s drunken blog commenter. Is that a good or bad thing?)
kmldogg777 (Nominated by yours truly and also doubling as your underdog, 50-1, licking-your-chops-at-such-great-odds, pick to win it all. )
A decent batch of schmucks to be sure, but we have three more competitors to announce:
So from me, to the three of you, welcome to the competition.
Remember, the potential winner has two things on the line…
1.) Pride. You win, you brag. For an entire year. In fact changing your WordPress user name to, KingofCommenting’09 is highly recommended.
2.) A guest post on a topic of your choosing. Nick’s masculinity is a good starting point. I’m not sayin’, I’m just sayin’.
So dust off your old Hulk-a-mania t-shirt, re-shelve your, Life of Reilly book and get ready for the fight of your life. Dwdowning619 is after your manhood.
