I’ve entered my blog into this year’s Aniblog Tourney – basically, a huge tournament to decide which is the ‘best’ (or most popular at least) anime/manga related blog out there. Ironically, I find myself pitted against the person who suggested I go for it, the person who recommended my blog to the people running it in the first place; long time co-leader of TSR’s Anime Society, Caraniel, and her Ramblings.
She’s watched more anime and read more manga than me, has been blogging far longer than me, has covered a much wider range of subjects and series than me, and has been more active in the wider blogosphere than me. What do I have to compete with that? Well… I have traps… and superior MS Paint skills… My hair is pretty awesome too, but that’s not going to help me here. Basically, I’m relying on sympathy votes and the luck of the Welsh. 😛
I don’t know much about how this is going to work, but here’s the voting bracket – I’m in the green bracket, just below the middle – look for the only pairing in the group without a ‘vs’ sign between them. 😛 It is hoped that voting will begin on the 15th, but I don’t know when my round will come up – I’ll post an update nearer the time, of course.
One last thing – the rules do specify that this tournament is all about the quality of the blog, not the awesomeness of the blogger. So if you’re not already familiar with Cara’s blog, do check it out before voting for me anyway. 😛
