What?! COME ON!
I just found out there is no Ford Commercial for Blogger Idols!
I’m not Going to Be in a Ford Commercial!… but…
The other day I was carousing around on the interwebs and I came across this tweet from this funny dude called @Daddysincharge. I don’t remember what he tweetered, but it made me want to visit his website. On his site was this post about AJ Gill that caught my attention. I know what your thinking…
‘Oh yeah, from American Idol season 1. I love AJ Gill!’
but it wasn’t AJ Gill that caught my attention. It was this thing called…
Apparently there is a competition for bloggers to compete, be crowned champion of the blog world and win cool prizes. Who knew!?
So I jumped over to the Blogger Idol site, read the rules and thought what do I have to lose? So I auditioned… and quickly. There was only a few hours left to submit the auditions. I found it just in time.
In the interest of full transparency I will say that I completed the audition not knowing much about the competition. I figured a few bloggers out there would try out and it would be fun to be apart.
I did, however, put a lot of thought into what I wrote.
Afterwards I started looking into the competition more and it turns out more than 160 people submitted posts to try and be apart of the top 13 who get to compete. I read tons of posts from previous competitors and started getting excited about being involved.
One of the judges Facebooked me and complemented my site and said I might have a chance of making the top 13, at least she thought I had a chance.
The announcement was made this morning and guess what!!!!????
I made the top 13!
I am totally pumped. The competition runs something like this. Saturday the contestants get a blogging assignment. That blog post is due by Tuesday. Then there is voting from the fans and reviews by the judges. Then fools start getting nixed.
So I’ll need both of my loyal fans to read my posts and vote for me.
This should be a great experience and I’m excited to get to know some other bloggers out there.
A big shout out to Heather Reese, from My Husband Ate All My Ice Cream, for putting this whole thing together, and all the judges. And John from Daddy’s In Charge for letting me know about the competition.
This is going to be a fun ride… Unless of course I get voted out first. Then it will be more like a fair ride that cost twenty one .50 cent tickets for the family to ride and lasts 7 seconds (#ihatethosegiantfairslides).
Either way it’ll be an experience.
