BIG ANNOUNCEMENT REVEALED!

It's the "MY BEST POST" BLOG-A-THON!

Here's the lowdown on this event of the season. I want your best posts. The ones that make you the most proud. It's time to show off your skills, people. Everyone should participate because here's the best part: you've already written your entry!

You've got three weeks to make your choice. If you think you can write a post better than your fans have ever seen before then get to work! On May 21st, it's time to show the goods!  E-mail your links to: heshotcyrus@hotmail.com or leave a comment here.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I'll be e-mailing certain bloggers whose work I really admire and asking them to participate. If, for some reason, I forget to ask you...don't worry, I love your blog too and you should feel almost obligated to show off your analytical and literary skills.

Also, a million thanks to my good friend Laura for making this kick-ass graphic!
PLEASE PASS THE GRAPHIC AROUND. 
LET EVERYONE KNOW ABOUT THE EVENT.

You're welcome! Sorry it took me so long to get it to you. Since my laptop doesn't get internet, I barely turn it on anymore. I love the updated fonts!

Mike,

The link doesn't seem to lead anywhere.

I just emailed mine...it's post about the importance of lettuce and the cleaning effects it has on your colon. Should make for a great read.

marshallandthemovies.com said...

I feel like this is my most underrated:

http://marshallandthemovies.com/2010/04/22/morereflectionsonavatar/

I spent a ridiculous amount of time on it and got very little feedback - hopefully this can get it some!

Love this idea!

siutou_amy said...

I dunno if I'm on time, but I'll nominate this entry:

http://personal.amy-wong.com/2010/05/18/afterellen-top-east-asian-suggestions-2010/

I'll blog you once I get some sleep. That post seems to get a word count of 1800 O.O no wonder I'm beat.

Daniel Getahun said...

Thanks for the invitation. I'll be "offline" for the actual blogathon but I feel proud of a post I just finished that had been wallowing in draft mode for months:

Thanks!

Hey. Here's my link to the post I think is the best:

And here's the link to today's post I wrote about the blogathon:

I didn't know which you wanted, so I thought I'd give ya both.

Marc Edward Heuck said...

Durn it, I'm probably much too late for this, but I gotta roll the dice and submit anyway:

Ironically, this was written for another blogathon earlier in the year-what are the chances?

ABFL said...

Somehow I missed the 2010 on this post. So, one year later, I submit:
