And so it begins.

Blogging Idol is Live

So, I guess the idea is to increase your RSS subscriber base by the largest number. Not necessarily the most subscribers but the biggest increase. Considering I am starting at 16 I have nowhere to go but up.

Apparently I have to send an email once a week outlining my strategy. I hadn't read that fine print. I don't exactly have a strategy. Maybe that is my strategy? Ya, sure, why not?

In case you are interested, I am number 46 in the list. If your up for helping out, there are three ways to play:

1. Just click on my Subscribe Now button on the right side bar.

2. If you happen to have FireFox 3.0, click on the RSS feed button in the address bar of your browser.

3. Or you can just follow this link.

I will try not to embarass myself. However, I will have to work on the strategy thing. Some suggestions on the site are guest articles, contests, give-aways, controversial articles, free eBooks.

All great suggestions, I suppose, but eBook? I don't have time to write a fuckin' book so that is out.

I would love it if someone wanted to do a guest article. ABSOLUTELY ANYONE. You hear me?

Any suggestions on contests would be greatly appreciated too.

Am I cheating if I am getting all my ideas from you, the reader? Who gives a shit.

best of luck. Focus on making sure people know you have entered blogging idol. I have added a special section to my blog design saying I have entered and to vote for me. Other than that just be active on other blogs - commenting and the like and you are sure to see an increase.
