Well it’s that time of the week. Time to plan for the weekend, flog your blog, and also announce the winner of our LooBloggers Competition!
Now if you missed it (you have with been living under a rock or you don’t like my Facebook page which you should go and do right now!), last week my fellow loobloggers and I were outraged to discover that Jessica Simpson had tweeted a pic of her on the dunny, and of course it had gone viral!
So with the help of LooBloggers Gemma, Daisy, Lolly and Erin, we launched a counter attack, and promptly posted our own loo blogging pics on Facebook.
Then of course I had to take it a step further and decided that I would run a competition and ask everyone else to send in their pics, with the hope of honorary LooBlogging membership at the finish line, and also a prize.
Well I may have been a little crazy. Apparently it seems that not everyone shares my outrageous sense of humour, and in fact some of the more sophisticated members of the blogging community actually would prefer to not have images of people on the toilet.
But I had started the race and would see it to completion, and thankfully, that day has arrived.
There were five entries in the competition, (plus a whole bunch of images from me, trying to elicit some kind of passionate participation.) When it came time to judge these entries, I devised a very thorough and cunning plan that would achieve fairness and the desired out come; I sent an email to the girls and said, ‘can you help me pick a winner?’
Well thank God for Gemma and her public service background, because she demanded instead that there be voting criteria, and an overall best score.
So following her
threats advice, the entrants were judged on four categories, with each of the judges (Gemma, Daisy, Erin and Myself) having a set category.
The categories were:
Creativity (the thought gone into taking the pic)
Degree of Difficulty (how hard was it to get the shot)
Authenticity (would you actually looblog like this?) and
Location (the more random, the higher the points.)
Following are the entrants and their results.
Anonymous LooBlogger (which may or may not be Boatman)
Location: 5/5 (it was taken at work.)
Location: 5/5 (at the shops! Lee you are a star!)
Jolene from Jolene’s Mumbo Jumbo
And so the winner is (insert drum roll here…)
Anonymous and Mums the Word!
So considering that anonymous may or may not be a cohabitant of this household, we have decided to award Sarah with LooBlogging membership, as well as out shiny, bedazzled LooBloogers award:
Special mentions has to go to all the contestants, for effort, participation, and in the case of Sonia, the header of Diary of a SAHM included in the shot.
For your efforts you are all hearby dubbed official LooBloggers. You may wear the LooBlogger button on your blog, and announce your status to the blogosphere.
And as a special thank you for everyone’s long suffering during this week long LB obsession, I have made a video clip for your viewing delight. Feel free to mock and laugh as much as you like. (As an aside, Boatman said this song was so bad he would rather go to work for a week than watch it again which is saying something, so I am definitely posting it against his better judgement!)
Happy Friday LooBloggers! I love you all!
(Sarah can you email me your address so I can send you your sparkly toilet brush!)
