How about we raise the stakes, just to keep it interesting? I have conferred with Lame Adventures, Madame Weebles and Roller Giraffe, and we came up with 5 new challenges to win bonus points which will you get closer to my blogrolls. Today’s challenge was inspired by Ruby. Se wrote a post on A Canvas of the Minds, about the contest, and asked that her readers visit A Clown on Fire, and vote for her blogroll nomination. By winning a place on my blogrolls, she is hoping that A Canvas of the Minds will some of the attention it fully deserves. And it worked – LIKE votes supporting her nomination poured.
Today’s challenge: write a mini-post about this blogroll contest on your own blog, which must link to the original post, and win 5 extra bonus points – LIKE votes, if you prefer. These mini-posts must be published today, before midnight. Ruby, I have granted you 5 bonus points, as it is only fair. The other challenges will be posted as follow:
- Madame Weebles: Thursday;
- Roller Giraffe: Friday;
- Lame Adventures: Saturday.
Now for all newcomers, there is still plenty of time to play! If you wish to nominate yourself for one of my blogrolls, you must enter here. For all other participants, show us your best strategies to get more votes. And if you are having duplicate error messages, use other LIKE spellings: likey, l.i.k.e… At this point, it’s anyone’s game!
