Well in yet another “what the hell was I thinking” moment I’ve entered a blogging competition.
Just me and 1023 others so it’s an intimate affair.
There are a number of parts to the competition. You had to pick a category – I tossed a coin and ended up in the parenting section – I’m not sure I fit neatly into any sector but given how much I write about my kids parenting is probably the nearest fit.
Judges will be stopping by in the next week to check me out. They are considering writing (70 per cent), presentation and usability (20 per cent) and engagement and social media integration (10 per cent).
There is also a popularity contest – the children have tried to break it to me gently that may not be an area of strength for me – I’ve crunched the numbers and they are right not a chance in hell. So in my usual let’s make the best of this style, I’ve lowered the goal post. I just don’t want to get no votes. Happy with even one. Given my sure thing vote has headed off to New Zealand for holiday (thanks Mum) it means you people have to draw straws and SOMEBODY has to register a vote. PLEASE. Click on the badge, you will be taken to a survey, the blogs are listed alphabetically so you will have to scroll through a few pages before you get to Shambolic Living (about now really wishing I’d gone with the Aardvark Living for a title). Voting is open until Wednesday, 9th May, 2012 at 5.00pm.
In the meantime, keep those comments coming in (judges like that) while I try to figure out how to use Twitter more effectively and get something happening on my Facebook page oh yeah and write some really brilliant posts.
Good god blogging is a complicated world.
