Don’t ever tell me that I learn a lesson from failing at something. A couple of years ago, when this blog was very new and I was idealistic about it going to a place where I would never have to do real work ever again, I held a contest giveaway. I did what I thought was a clever thing where I did a scavenger hunt through previous blog posts. Readers would find words in specific posts, “like” the post and then in the comments give me the results. I thought it would set the internet on fire and I would be talked about on all the Today shows and become a viral sensation. What it did was reminded me that my readers were just as lazy as me. They said it was a great idea, but they had no time for it, so good luck to the five people that actually took the time to do it. Of course, I’m still an idiot enough that I know for a fact that I’m just one famous person discovering this contest away from going completely viral and becoming the next famous person that never did anything to earn their fame. That was an epic fail and didn’t happen, so as a person that doesn’t learn from their mistakes, I’m doing it again. Of course, this time it will be different because Rainn Wilson will be observing and tweet it out to all his constituents.
So back to the point. I was contacted by Victoria of Angstanarchy and Alanna of White Girls Be Like… to do a Funny Blog Friday thing on this upcoming Friday, which for you calendarly inept people is Halloween. It involves me epic failing at several things. Doing a contest giveaway, which you saw above I failed at and trying to be funny, which you can see I fail at on almost an every other daily basis. Again, I don’t learn, cause I’m bitter. So I’m just gonna put this out there and see it fail.
So contest. You have until Friday to either follow my Twitter, Benadman, follow my Ben’s Bitter Blog Facebook Page, or if you have done all that, like one of my post 6 months ago or earlier. If you find any of those things too hard, then you don’t deserve to win anyways. Prize: $20 of anything. If you want a gift certificate to something that I can find on the internet, you can have that of your choosing. Or if you want to be creative and make me buy something that you know will make me bitter, feel free. Either that, or I have a kind of bag thing that I got that says “Think Creatively”, but it also says my blog address on it, so you might want to blot that out so people don’t think you follow some weird blog on the internet. Just know that if you enter and win you will have to give me some sort of information on how to get the prize to me, so if you are a recluse that doesn’t want me knowing your address or PO Box or whatever, don’t enter. But I think that would be obvious right?
Alright, there is an upside to all this epic fail. There are other people involved in the funny thing that are actually funny and I will include links below to them, so you have something to laugh about on this Funny Blogger Friday. Also feel free to hashtag that thing up above, because I sure don’t know what to do with hashtags. Also, see the original post that started this all.
