Did you know that there’s an International Blog Cup going on at the moment.
I just got an email from a reader saying that it’s on and that ProBlogger’s made the Quarter Finals (I didn’t even realize I was competing :-) )
There’s even a ‘Virtual Blog Cup’ for the winner (for their virtual trophy cabinet I guess)!
update – I’ve withdrawn from the competition. As a result of my own stupidity I seem to have inadvertently gamed the system. Here’s how it happened.
When I first saw the Blog Cup I of course voted for myself. This took me to a page which showed the results of my vote. I didn’t realize at the time that this page had a unique URL. I then linked to this page in this post. Unfortunately the link that I had was actually one forced people to vote for ProBlogger simply by arriving on the page.
As I say – this was something I did without thinking – it’s actually probably a weakness of the voting system used at Blog Cup – but it was my fault and has led to unfair results.
As a result – I’m withdrawing from the competition. Apologies to anyone who was hurt by this – as I say, it was not my intention at all.
