What's also killing me is that nagging feeling that I'm just not worthy to have put on this contest. Each of the remaining contestants has blown away any expectation that I ever had when I thought up this silly idea. As you know, my thought was that a competition would spur me on to blog daily as I had been promising myself for almost a year now. Well, you guys took that baton and ran with it like Olympic athletes, just without all of the suspicion of steroid usage and gender fraud.
Not only have you all posted daily but some of you are now posting more than once a day. For example, Tax Girl, has been posting twice a day over the last week, including three posts on Friday. And by the way, these weren't Twitter-like "Had great pizza for lunch. Anyone else really like anchovies?" posts. These were hardcore "If you'd like an aneurism, please try to understand this section of the tax code and how it applies to left-footed Hungarian miners and why the IRS might consider you to be one" posts.
Likewise, the contest seems to have spurred some rivalries (although no one will admit it). For example, our employment lawyers have each upped the ante in terms of both content and presentation style over the last two weeks. Apparently, someone is going for the title of "Best Damn Employment Law Blog" period. The same is true for our techies. I salute you with words from one of your heroes, Mork from Ork, "Nanu Nanu!"
Now, if you will excuse me, I'm going to pop some popcorn and spend the next 90 minutes hitting the refresh button on my browser to see if Wags can pull out a squeaker.
