Hey Now, You’re An All-Star
Normally on Monday you tune in to find the First Church Year series. Don’t worry, that will be back tomorrow. Today, however, I have something different. Way different.
After last year, they said it wouldn’t last. The powers that be said it couldn’t be done again. What happened?
Rob and Ricky upped the game.
It’s time for the 2nd Annual Blogging All Stars Challenge.
What is the Blogging All Stars Challenge? It’s only the most awesome contest in the history of the internets. It’s Team Rob vs. Team Ricky. It’s Rob’s team of heavy hitters, with a small time guy vs. Ricky’s team of great guys and gals that we will soon call losers.
I am honored to participate in this. Honestly, I was taken by surprise when Rob contacted me to participate. Then I saw who was on our team. Here is the rundown of Team Rob.
Tyler Stanton — C’mon, dude is a legend with all of the great videos he makes with Tripp. Average’ is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.
Tyler Tarver — Tyler is, well, like the only rapping math whiz I’ve ever seen. He has revolutionized the To-Do List. Plus, he has one of the greatest accents ever.
Jon Acuff — What can I say about my boy that I haven’t already said. Best friends? Check. Forever memories? Check. Unicorns and rainbows? Check.
Carlos Whittaker— I don’t know Carlos very well. I may be one of the few that don’t follow him on a regular basis. That is to my detriment. Carlos is a ragamuffin soul pursuing the Lord with all he’s got.
Leanne Shirtliffe — Yes, the Ironic Mom herself. I don’t know her all that well either, but she is Canadian and I love her bacon. We had a Twiter conversation once where we shared our love for the old days of SCTV.
Tamara Lunardo — Tamara is the only person I know who has actually made it to Freshly Pressed on Word Press. She has a few tattoos, uses more colorful language than many of us, and love the Lord. I also submitted a guest post to her, didn’t make it and created my own non-guest post about the experience that worried her for a few days.
Bryan Allain — This guy has the mojo. Blogging mojo, that is. And he can show you how to get it in 31 days. Plus, he’s got a Killer Tribe just for you. Bryan lives in Amish country and never fails to disappoint.
Knox McCoy — Knox loves the Batchelor. And the Batchelorette. I’m not really sure why, but hey, I’m sure he would question some of my TV choices too. On top of his own blog, which brings the meatloaf on Mondays, he runs TV Asylum with the aforementioned Tyler Stanton.
Stephen Haggerty — Stephen is bearded and an idealist. He brings us other great beards on a monthly basis and great humor every time he puts character to screen. He leads worship and will soon call Chik-Fil-A his office.
Then there’s me. I look at this list of heavy hitters and I’m just glad to be riding their coat tails in this whole shebang.
If you want to know about the competition, you will have to visit Rob’s site and check them out. You will be checking out the losing team of the contest, but you need to go over there anyway. (Note: I love everyone on the other team. I just love to trash talk.)
Now, about this contest. I need your help. Follow the link and head on over to Rob’s place and vote. Vote for Team Rob. Vote early and often. If you have a dog or cat, get them to vote.
