“Blogger’s Got Talent” judges have discussed the categories
for this year’s show. Auditions for the following categories will be
held at the ‘Blogland Convention Centre’, located near ‘Blog Hope
International Airport’ in ‘Blogbank’, California. Special charter
prices can be obtained by contacting the blogger’s favourite airline, “Blog Air.” Audition dates and times will be announced shortly.
category. We are searching for a blogger who disregards the comments
on their site. Never lowers themselves to comment on other sites and
constantly talks about their favourite subject, them!
category. This category would have us find the very best at constantly
drawing attention to their blog by setting up various blog challenges,
blog hops and anything related to the alphabet.
category. We’d like to discover a blogger who breaks all the rules and
mocks those who’d attempt to use correct grammar. Somebody who uses
run-on sentences that go on and on and on and on and then some more and
without the use of commas but actually ends abruptly with an exclamation
mark or three!!!
category. Hopefully, we can find somebody who talks about their cats,
their fun times at the fast-food restaurant with the kids and the thrill
of getting another Justin Bieber poster.
category. This category would like to hear from bloggers who can
discuss situations such as the time they got knocked over by an
category. This is the category where we find a blogger who thinks that
those who set up blog challenges, blog hops, blogfests and other
competitions, are making out like they are demonstrating the ideals of a
sharing, caring blogging community. The cynical blogger might state
that they are really trying to draw attention to themselves and
accumulate more followers.
So there are the ten categories. At the end of the Blogger’s Got Talent season, we’ll have the ultimate winner. I wonder if you would audition for any of those categories?
I have been honoured to have my blog “klahanie” featured on the
B.B.C.’s radio station ‘Radio 5 Live’. On a show titled: “Pods and
Blogs”, I tried to highlight in my interview, that it’s time to
eliminate the unfair stigma that’s still attached to mental health
issues. I firmly believe that the media can help redress the balance.
How about sensationalizing the positive recovery stories rather than
the negative stereotypes that people with mental health issues have to
endure? I am a man challenging his “inner critic.” I will not
‘surrender’ to my symptoms. I give myself permission to be positive. I
try to live my life with realistic positive anticipation, rather than,
negative speculation. We all have the right to peace and contentment.
I want to give others positive affirmations. I am not daunted by my
loneliness. For in my solitude, I have discovered a determined
resilience. I care passionately for people who have been undermined in
an unjust world. I challenge the stigma that still surrounds mental
blog’s name “klahanie” comes from the Chinook tribe located on
the Pacific Northwest of North America, and is widely accepted as meaning, “the great outdoors.”
