Bloggers Wanted: The best around


Obviously, the end of the year brings with it discussions of awards, both bad and good. There was a best of everything and, if you like complaining, a worst of everything.

With this in mind, the final Bloggers Wanted for 2011 will involve being the best around, just like the wonderful Joe Esposito tells us we are. You can write about whatever you want as long as it did the best this year, whether it’s an actor, film, short film, celebrity sex tape. Whatever you want. You can even get creative and say that something was the best at sucking and talk about the worst of the year. But not the worst celebrity sex tape. Please.

To do this thing, head over to the blogs and write a new one titled “The best around: Whatever you want”. Please use the “Bloggers Wanted Response” tag so you can get that tingly “official” feeling. Don’t have enough to say to justify a full blog? Think harder. Or, you know, leave a comment and get a discussion going right here. Click through for some tips.

Increase your odds at a home page promotion
Don’t blow your odds by messing up the basics.  Get this stuff right and you’re 80% there:

– Write a punchy headline (make it clever!)
– Use your real voice, but write complete sentences and mind your punctuation.
– Put a header photo and supporting images in your story (nobody likes a wall of text)
– We prefer the old school formula: opening paragraph introducing two or three arguments, a paragraph or two for each argument, and a wrap up
– Copy/paste it from a Word Processor.  You see those big red squiggly lines?  Those are incomplete phrases.  You may want to tidy that up, dear.
– Make it fun!  Don’t bore people with your encyclopedic knowledge of film or they’ll steal your red stapler.
