As a blogger site, I have run a ton of contests and games that have ended up being a blast for visitors and for our community. Aside from the semi-annual Dottie Awards, I have also hosted Americas Next Top Blogger and Blogger Bingo.
Keeping with the tradition of a new community game, we are hosting the First Annual Bloggers and Tiara’s Blogger Pageant from Nov 9th-Nov 20th.
The contest, which is meant for fun, will have varying activities that contestants will complete on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of both weeks and turn in to be judged by a secret panel. The person with the most overall points at the end of the contest will win.
While there will be no official voting, visitors will have a chance to influence the judges opinion of a blogger by leaving comments supporting them or their work along the way. Bloggers that are a part of the contest are encouraged to have tier visitors cheer for them and display their banners.

1) Is there an entrance fee?
A) No. This is for fun.But ill take donations if you are giving out cash.
2) I’m not pretty, should I still enter?
A) Coming from someone sitting here in pajamas at 11am, this contest isnt about facial beauty. Its about creativity, participation, and fun.
3) What if I miss one of the days that an assignment is up?
A) Then you will miss out points for that section, but you can try to just do a great job on all the other sections. I will put up the assignments on M, W, and F each week and you will have to have it completed before the next assignment.
4) Who is your secret panel of judges?
A) Its a secret.
5) Trisha, you can be a little crazy. What kind of things are you going to make us do?
A) Did you watch the Americas Next Top Blogger contest? Stuff like that…although different. No one died. Did that help at all?
6) I have always wanted a crown but my head is really big. Will I be able to custom size it?
A) No…the crowns come in one size, but you can sit it on your desk to remind yourself how freaking awesome you are.
7) Is this a joke or for real?
A) Both. Its more on the side of making fun of pageants, so for talents you can cook a pie, roll your hair in curlers, or change diapers fast.
8 ) What do I get out of this?
A) Now, now..you should not enter things to get something back. But now that you asked, a TIARA if you win (who doesn’t want that???), mucho respect, an awesome title to brag about, and you even get to come back as a judge if we do another round in the future. We also hope it exposes some of your personality to our audience and you gain a few readers.
And world Peace.

A) Uh, DUH. That is why we are having this.
