If you have hated the Blogging All-Star Challenge the good news is that this is the last post about it till next year. The bad news is that this post is all about the outcome of said competition.
This years competition received 135 likes on Facebook, 94 tweets, 165 comments, 1,309 votes, and was featured on 10 different blogs.
Last year Team Ricky was ahead for the first few days and then Jon Acuff (Blogging superstar) sent a tweet heard around the world. Literally his one tweet destroyed the competition. This year Team Ricky knew what they were up against and they brought there ninja game. That’s higher than an A game.
Team Rob wouldn’t go down without a fight. After practically man-napping Jon Acuff and forcing him to send out a tweet he sent out the following on Saturday…If you only vote for one blogging challenge today, please vote for this one and vote “Team Rob.”
I pretty much made a public scene when I saw his tweet. I might of squealed like a guy who just got tweeted by Jon Acuff. It was to no avail. Team Ricky responded. Whenever it got close Team Ricky would find a way to pull ahead. For a good part of Saturday Team Rob was up by 11 votes. Then like a Nigerian runner Team Ricky took a commanding lead. By Sunday it was a 40 vote difference.
Thanks for everyone who voted. It was a lot of fun. Team Ricky won, but you better believe I’ll be back. Oh, and for the record it’s now tied 1 to 1.
Was the Blogging All-Star Challenge fun for you or do you wish it would die a quick death and never return?
The artwork for the Blogging All-Star Challenge was done by the uber talented Wes Molebash. Well, Wes is starting a brand new adventure. He has created a really cool web comic. It’s called “Insert Image”, and it’s about two guys who work on the creative team at their church. They basically sit around and comment on church culture and pop culture. It debuts today.
