I’ve heard it time and time again . . . the Blogosphere is just like high school. Well, to prove it, I’m holding the 1st Annual Bloggy Hoss Election.

If you’re around my age, you’ll probably remember this high school contest where the winners got a cartoon character drawn of them and published in the yearbook. How I longed to be Miss Popularity. *sigh* It never happened. Believe it or not, I was very shy back then.

It’s now 25 years later (for me anyway) and I’m giving all of you a second chance at going for that prestigious award. And even though I’m sure a lot of you were actually poplular in high school, I won’t hold that against you. hee hee

In any case, here are the categories:

  • Most Athletic
  • Class Clown
  • Brainiest
  • Most Popular
  • Most Likely to Succeed
  • Most Artistic
  • Head Cheerleader
  • Nicest Personality
  • Most Talkative
  • Best Looking (Site Design)


  • From now until July 5th, you may nominate one blog for each catergory using my contact form above (all nominations will be held confidential).
  • You cannot nominate yourself. Therefore, post a link back and have your friends submit your blog!
  • The top 3 nominees in each category will then be announced on July 6th.
  • From July 7th till July 10th, a poll will be posted here and you may vote for one blog in each category, once per day. Get all your friends to vote for you, too!
  • The blog with the most votes wins. Winners will be announced on July 11th. You’ll recieve a cool button to prove how popular you are! ;-)

So, go and check out your blogrolls to see who fits into the above categories. May the best blogs win!

    So fun! I was never under any of these catagories in High School… now, if you’d had “Band Geek” on there, I just might have fit in ;)

  5. Write From Karen says:

    Woohoo! Yet ANOTHER fun idea, K!

    Me? I was nominated most likely to drop the F-bomb during a job interview. *grin* I’m happy to report, that did not happen! It, um, sort of happened AFTER I got the job. *wink*

    Okay, seriously, I was the weird kid who liked to run things back stage during school plays. I was a misfit and proud of it!

    Good luck, everyone!
