The Game of Blogs!
Are you addicted to the Game of Thrones? Then you will surely be interested in the Game of Blogs!
Blogadda is organizing a Game of Blogs as one of the means to #CelebrateBlogging this month. Just like the many faces of the politics of Westeros, the Game of Blogs weaves storytelling, blogging, blogger networking all into this one activity.
The activity involves telling a story through a team of bloggers for 3 weeks, at the end of which the best is published as a book by Blogadda! Just like scores of characters are bumped off in Game of Thrones, a jury panel comprising of some of the biggest names in contemporary English Literature will bump off teams at the end of every week.
We bloggers said, “Challenge accepted”!
How could I not participate in this activity? I am fan of collaborative blogging contests, having won the Bloggers Premiere League in August 2010. It was instrumental in pushing me into different genres, hone my editing skills, connect with some fabulous bloggers and take pride in a joint achievement. Now that I am drifting in and out of writer’s block, I grabbed this splendid opportunity to get back my mojo 🙂
After a long wait, we were finally slotted into teams of 10 bloggers. I am a part of The Pen Warriors! 🙂 If you want to know who my team members are, follow the links as and when they appear on my blog 🙂
After a nail-biting wait, Blogadda released the 5 main characters around whom all the teams have to weave their stories. Same characters; numerous stories! Check them out below –
