The Herd is Thinning Already

On our first day of the contest, we lost four blawgs.  That leaves just 13 fearless blawggers vying for the title of sole survivor.  By the way, I've added a new widget to this site that gives a birds-eye view of the survivors' blawgs (including the time of their last post) so you can now "spy" on the competition without visiting a dozen different websites.

Although, on that note, I suspect that we might not have a dozen castaways for too much longer.  Interestingly, about half of you wrote about this contest in your first entry.  Unless you are planning on devoting your blog to promoting my blawg (be my guest), the creative juices need to start flowing ... and quickly.  You have less than 12 hours to post your next entry.

Dropping like flies in the first days - sad I tell you, sad!! Come on contestants - we can hang in at least a week I'm sure!!!

Give the guy some positive press and he responds with a challenge -this is getting fun!

Don't be two hard on me Sean. With more than a dozen contestants, all of which I visited and did some homework on, that post took me longer than any other one that I will do during this entire contest.

So, am I out, or did I do something to get ostracized from the widget?

In response to my detractors:

1) Wags -- I don't need your positive press as I create enough negative press of my own. Hehe

2) Jeffrey -- You expect reasonableness and sensitivity from a humorist. You'd have a better chance getting the Democrats to act like their actually in the majority. You're just lucky I didn't throw in a few "Yo Mama" jokes. Trust me. I'm not beyond it!

3) Tim -- You're still in the contest (just added you to the widgets). You got lost in the sea of employment law blogs at the beginning of the list. Go forth on bloggify!

So, it looks like as long as we put up a valid post we are still in the running? By that, I mean we don't have to mention/link to the other contestants in every post in order to "count"? That would make this a little easier!!
