Update 16 Sep 2012: There’s a whole WORLD of Blogger Idol across the blogosphere. I auditioned for this illustrious campaign, and I was one of the first ones so I thought it would have… that it might not be… okay, that not that many people would participate. 12 slots, plus an added 13th wild card slot.
Anyway, right now there are about 135 or so auditions, and the blogosphere is LIGHTING UP! I think a massive tweet, blog and Facebook comment campaign might be in order! Go to http://www.facebook.com/bloggeridol and vote for me, advocate for me, proselytize for me! Preach the word, brothers and sisters! And thanks. Oh, and do Guapowitz and Kimberliah too.
I am now a contestant for the “make it to Bloggywood” portion of Blogger Idol! And this post is pretty much my audition. So vote for me, or my next post will be a nude of Richard Simmons. No, Richard Belzer. No, Richard Cheney. No, Carrottop.
This was what I said:
Edward Hotspur is a world-famous author and witticist. The world just doesn’t know it yet. He is also a multiple-award-winning blogger and a published author! True. He loves sarcasm, cynicism, wittiness, one-liners, awful puns, music, cooking and left-handed salads. He adores referring to himself in the third person. He had no help whatsoever writing this audition.
At this for just over a year, Hotspur already has 845 blog posts of widely varying subject matter, sights, sounds, and smells if you’ve been eating Taco Bell! He loves to take you down a dark path, and then make a sudden left turn into surrealism. He will dispense both wisdom and poop jokes, and he will talk about both Uranus and his love of caulk.
He has been known to punch you in the face with one post, and then hold you all night long with another. He will wine you, dine you, and then wine you again. His blog will please all of the people some of the time, or even slightly more than some of the time! It has photography both serious and silly, from nature to local attractions to the infamous Unicorn Pissing Rainbow. It has serious and silly poetry, serious and silly stories, music videos and opinion, a daily log of his trip to work, and several recurring characters like Granite Countertop, PI, the all-female crew of the Starship Innerthighs, and his ever-popular and ever-controversial advice series, Highly Confident Guy. He will also share his love of The Greene and Japanese visual kei music with you.
People have found him in a multitude of ways using a multitude of search terms, including Lesbian Elves, Panda Lasers, Sauron Panties and Sadness. Which he has multiple posts about. And of course, a blog isn’t complete without spam, and he has more than his fair share – but he isn’t afraid to eviscerate those spammers in multiple posts as well!
There is something for literally everyone on his blog, and if you don’t like what’s there today, just wait until later today! But that’s not all – very often, he and his blogosphere pals keep the party going down in the comments section, and if you don’t read every last one, you might be missing half the fun.
If you’re wondering why he is speaking in third person, it’s simply because there isn’t a ‘tenth person’ point of view he can write in – because when you read Edward Hotspur’s blog, you’ll swear that it was written by ten different people.
But it’s just the many wonderful facets of Edward Hotspur.
So get out there and vote for me, assuming I actually make it to the finals. It’s so odd that I’m entering this, because my next post, with any luck, will be me singing Don’t Gotta Work It Out by Fitz and the Tantrums.
And here it is!
