So what’s on the radar for this spring in the local blogsphere?
I am about to leave on a 10 day vacation. I am leaving my tech at home. I want to unplug and enjoy a more organic time off. So, I need to get the table set for the Second Annual Humboldt Blogger’s Tournament. Before I leave town, I will update the Blog Rankings. My hope is that by March 1st, I will have the tournament field set, and those of you bloggers will be able to see who you are matched up against.
There will be four Regions with 16 blogs each. Each Region will have #1 seed, and those #1 seeds will be announced right before the field is revealed. The names of the four regions are as follows:
Prairie Creek State Park
Arcata Marsh & Wildlife Sanctuary
Headwater’s Forest Reserve
Richardson Grove State Park
Now there is some intrigue as the tournament draws near. Here a couple of story lines…
Planet Tapperass ruled ineligible for the tournament.
Despite an appeal to the committee, Tapperass was ruled out of the tournament for undisclosed violations. It was a shock to friends and fans as he was looking to improve on his first round exit from a year ago.
The NCJ Blogthing
A tumble in the rankings has the experts wondering if the loss of a key player will spell doom for a front runner. The Blogthing can still rally, and do quite well. However, will they still have enough to compete with the big boys/girls?
The up and comers
The story all winter long a has been the top 5 blogs. All the while some other blogs have started to move up the rankings, or simply have fine tuned their games. The result is blogs like the Mckinleyville Press morphing into a solid contender this March. Oh, and the ladies of Chocolate Covered Xanax are using posts about sex toys and procreating in public restrooms to send a message to their competition: Look the hell out!
