Way back in 2017 (I can barely remember yesterday), the awesome website Adventure Rules hosted an amazing community event called Blogger Blitz. Basically, you chose your favourite character (I, of course, went with my shero Lightning Farron) to go head-to-head against another blogger in a bracket style elimination tournament, complete with a panel of judges. The crazy scenarios were intense, the judgey little punks were tough, Ian’s results posts were masterpieces, and oh man, I was absolutely terrified when I entered it (and every time I had to write a post).
By some miracle, Lightning and I won the whole thing (I didn’t bribe the judges… I swear). It was the greatest feeling ever when I finally realized other people may have actually been entertained by my writing. And, wow! That entire event was the most fun I’ve ever had blogging. I really enjoyed reading everyone’s posts for the competition, in addition to learning so much from having my own work professionally judged by awesome folks. It was the first time I truly felt how special the WordPress blogging community was.
Anyway, when I deleted my old blog my entries were wiped off the internet. I’m actually really proud of those posts so I thought I’d re-post them on my new site! I do believe Blogger Blitz 2 is happening very soon, so this will be a nice throwback for anyone interested 😉
