The funniest blog post for 2007 – Nominations are open

I can’t imagine doing a weekly blogging contest myself, and really don’t want to wait my turn at the carnival. So I’m creating a contest of my own. The first annual Funniest blog post for 2007. Here are the rules.

  1. The post has to be from an blogger.
  2. The post has to be funny

Nominations are now open. I will will pick a short list (bribes will be excepted), and a three judge panel will elect a winner. Anybody want to be a judge? Nomination deadline is 12:01 AM Mountain Time on Dec 27th. The winner will be announced at 12:01 AM on Jan 1, and wins nothing!

Here are a few that I have nominated so far.

The honer is all mine! – Kris Berg

Ten Marketing Tips You Can Learn From A Prostitute – Joe & Rudy (I’m not sure which)

Fixing The Agent Headshot Of Death – Athol Kay

Mademoiselle? Oui. La Spinster?…ZUT! – Geno Petro

Please don’t judge me by my page rank – Teresa Boardman

Top 5 Reasons Why You Wouldn’t Hire a Penguin as Your Next Realtor® – Mariana Wagner

Collegiate Cliques on – Yes, I nominated my own post. It was damn funny.

The Bubble Gum Interviews – Lani Anglin – I nominate the whole series. Sort of like a lifetime achievement award or something.

Nominate your own posts, or the posts of others in the comments section. There’s no limit on the number of posts from any one blogger that can be nominated. Email me if you want to me a judge. Finally, please spread the word about the contest. I could use a good laugh, so the more posts to choose from the better.

    I’d be a judge, but I would only vote for myself… 😉 I have already sent out threatening emails to people stating that I must win- of all the blog awards out there, I only want to win THIS one!!!

    It’s for the children, y’all… for the children!

    >Here’s two more from Kris who proves she is better at writing than reading instructions by emailing me her nominations instead of posting them here.

    Aargh! I have been outed as a shameless self-promoter! Thanks a lot, Todd.

    Suspicious that any new volunteer would be a plant from one of the competing bloggers 😉 , I went out and found a third judge on my own.

    Nicole Nicolay rounds out the three judge panel.

    OK, so I have some more of mine that won’t make my shortlist, but I thought I’d share them anyway. The whole point of the contest is to laugh a little.

    Bryan & Yvonne Carpenter – trust me, read between the lines and look at the links.

    It Be Talk Like A Pirate Day

    A local report on home values – My closing guest post on Inman

    I don’t want to be a zombie so stop throwing sheep at me – My appraisal of Facebook

    Endorsed by Teresa Boardman – I only cared if one person thought this was funny, and she did.

    And finally, all I did was link to this, but it was my favorite “Silly Friday” post of the year.
