A Blog Explosion Rocket Battle
Sooo...who still hangs around on Blog Explosion? Well, I still do because, well, I have no life. Anyway, the guys and gals over there have been coming up with new things for us to do on BE besides wait the obligatory 30 seconds to click the appropriate number. A while back they started "Blog Rocket." You click to get put on the rocket (which is nothing more than a list of 25 blogs) and as people click your link to look at your blog, it moves you up the "rocket" until you get to number 1 and then get "launched" and if you want, then you start all over. As you click on other people on the rocket, you can earn credits.

Now, there is something a little more interesting. It's the "Battle of the Blogs." Two blogs go head to head for votes and the one with more votes (out of 9)wins a portion of the credits wagered in the battle. It's kind of fun to see who chooses to go up against you and to see if you win. My record ain't so hot...but it is still fun for a minute or two. Did I mention I have no life?

    don't tell anyone but I like the spice girls. I can even name them how sad is that. What's worse, I know which ones are worth listening to as a solo artist.

    please don't tell anyone.

    I may have to try that, as I have found that Blog Explosion is a bunch of hooey. Yep, one great big time waster to get more traffic, and what good is traffic if they only wait 30 seconds to click away?

    Hello Angie...

    Please don't tell Tommy byt I cannot name any of the Spice Girls. Is there a sent me spice? I want to be her.

    I have not been on BE in so very long. That game sounds fun though.

    Wow, thanks for posting about it, my eyes didn't catch the battle! My blog doesn't get enough hits in the Blog Rocket for me to dare wagering credits in a challenge. :)

    Man I think I win the battle of the lifeless right now. Love the Spice Girls even bought the Movie and cried when Victoria (Posh Spice) had a miscarage.

    I Rocketed two times today and even earned 12 mystery points.

    I may try the Battle I have gotten I think 5 comments out of 289 visits and I do read and comment when I am BEing if it is not a page that I have been sent to 100 times that hasn't been updated in like a year! The worst one I keep getting stuck with is the Business Driven Life UGGHHH.
