Because I cannot in good conscience consider my blog to be in any way superior to the other in this… you know, I'm not even sure what this is supposed to be. A tournament? A cursory comparison? Something deeper and far more sinister? It is a mystery.
- I have little to no interest in actually designing this blog. I just take a template (Mandigo, in this case), stick in the necessary links, and then forget about it for the next couple of years or so.
- I don't plan my posts. (And about five hundred readers per day go "yes, we know.") It's all based on what floats through my brain at any given moment.
- I don't actually have a target audience defined, apart from possibly myself and my increasingly-poor memory. It helps to keep a record of my opinions on something or other… which I end up ignoring anyway because I can't be bothered to look it up in the archives.
- I have absolutely no idea how I even caught the organizers' eyes. I've never gotten around to truly advertising this blog around. Considering the state it's in, I doubt I ever will.
I would have posted this sooner, and possibly make some sort of significant difference, if I had kind of sort of actually known about this… competition thing? I'm sorry, I'm still not sure what it's supposed to be. It says "Tournament", but it's one where we don't have to prepare or do anything, and it doesn't seem to have any prize or penalty? Curious.
