I have my Google homepage set up with all of my friend's blogs. Lately, nobody has been posting, which is probably due to summery lazyosity. That's fine.
But one person in particular hasn't posted since January 2007. That's Jon Yu (pictured left, licking his middle fingers). January 31, 2007: "Trust, Faith, and Loyalty" was the title. A crappy story about firing sales pigs, and his need to shit on us from his moral high horse. But I digress.
What's the big deal, Al? You just said everyone is being lazy with their blogs, right? What's wrong is that during our 2006 TeamID awards, Jon netted our most coveted prize, which was Blog of the year. He did it using dirty, underhanded tactics: He started an 8 part serial, titled, "It's not how you start", a story about his scandalous affair with an older woman. 8 posts in 1 month, just before our awards ceremony, after making 8 posts or less over the course of the entire year.
He took that award, and then promptly deleted all of the posts. So now, our so called "Blog of the year" is left with "memorable" entries like, "Haha I suck some more." What is this? No really, what is this?
Remember this come December. I'm not saying I should win (Although I know that my blog is better than Ruby's. And I can put my thoughts into paragraphs, unlike Chris. Damn, digressing again). What I'm saying, TeamID voting panel, is to not be swayed by hype. Your 2006 Blog of the year is a sham. Let's not make the same mistake in 2007.
