Strange challenge combinations and

The other day I thought I would do one of those challenges that BE has set up now. I thought what the hell, I'll give it a go. Well as I figured, my blog lost.

One reason is because the person that accepted was a photography site. Ok, I only have a few years college as opposed to say 7 or 8 but really, in reading any or even all of my posts which are normally nothing really to do with photography (I have on occasion put up a photo of my own such as my tuberose and that *is* copyright and no one has permission to use that ever for any reason)other than photos of my own like that do you see my blog listed as a fucking photography site? No? Well geee what a surprise.

BE should really do a little fixing so that the people who accept a challenge are actually in the same category as the other one. At least reasonably so. If someone likes pictures better than actually *reading* someone's posts, then guess what? The photo site will win it. I think I'll skip that shit till BE reorganizes the thing so that general/misc sites are challenged with general/misc.

So anyone hard up for points with a blog that has vastly different content than mine will just have to do without me until like sites are challenges. Thanks and you have a nice day anyway. HAHA...

Anyway, here is a joke for Sunday. Enjoy!

  • come on kate the blog battle is not worth mullin over, it ends within 15secs and people just vote quick so they make the cut. you never get read and the page can be closed just as soon as it opens.

    it's definitely not worth bloggin over either!

    best regards,

  • Yeah, don't worry about it. It's just a game and people can be fairly pissy there anyway. If you've got a good score they vote against you to try and even things up. Some of them may even be jealous and you can tell by how they vote that some people will vote against a blog that's beaten them in the past. I suspect that a lot of people don't even look at a site that well. They're just on autopilot.

    It's got nothing to so with how a blog "actually" is. It's just a game. I've been up the top and I've been down the bottom. There's not really that much difference.

    Just write a blog that you're happy with and people will come.
