It Won't Long Be Long, Yeah! (Yeah!) 'Til I Buh-log to You

Disappointed by the recent absence of blogging up in herre? Fear not - a new blogging challenge is now in the works. No real details yet, but it will be heavily inspired by Chris Semp's Everyone Gets a Hamburger at the End: A Blog Challenge, which is to say that it will likely run for a similar length of time (I think it was something like six months), and completion of the challenge will require all competitors to blog something - anything - every single day, allowing only a single mulligan.

Interested? Leave a comment. I'm going to tentatively schedule the beginning of the thing for January 15. If that's not going to work for you, let me know as soon as possible. Worried you'll forget about all of this before then? Sign up now and I'll be sure to remind you to begin blogging as we approach the starting date. I'll continue accepting new contestants until the day we begin.


By the way, I'll be spending Christmas with the family, so this blog will be even more dead than usual over the next month. That doesn't mean you shouldn't continue to hopefully refresh this page every hour, and don't forget that it's always a good time to re-read the JakeyPen archives.


So that I might properly prepare for the sort of impersonal, detached blogging that comes as a result of doing this every day for a half a year, here's a link to something funny that someone else wrote [thanks, Dubious Quality!].

You sure? No cherry cola tears and complaining?
Okay: shouldn't it rather be "Buh-long"?

Jake said...

Well that wouldn't be much of a pun, would it?

Nor said...

Jake said...

Nope; these are all Internet friends. I am a creepy, isolated hermit.

Jake said...

No. You are not my friend. You smell bad and you have an ugly face.

Hey Mickey stop being so smell'n'face-racist, you'll never gonna make me sign up for this challenge with your attitude *shakes head in disappointment, which also implies some sort of authority and wisdom* I have a blog already, duh!

This is Phil, I did the blogaddiedoo last year with my blog at http://phool2056.livejournal.com/ and it was horrible. I estranged my ex girlfriend even further, wanked and moaned about my boring run of the mill breakup, and was generally a nuisance to myself and those around me. So I won't be blogging every day this year. Instead, I am going to throw my amateurish webcomic, Artist Wanted, which I update daily anyway, into the mix.
http://artistwanted.livejournal.com/ in case the url thing I plugged in below doesn't do it.

Jake said...

I think I'd be willing to qualify that comic as a blog if you're interested in competing for an imaginary award. I'm sure that missing out on the burger last year still stings even now.

I also mistook you at first for my real-life friend named Phil. Or, more accurately, not named Phil, but Phil is what I call him. But, hmmm... I must remember to ask "Phil" if he'd like to join in our fun...

Joanna said...

I'm in.

Jake said...

Congratulations and welcome!

Taylor H. said...

Count me in, sir.

Jake said...

Most excellent. Looks like we'll have ourselves quite the little challenge, after all.
