Hot Blogger Calendar

I was nominated for Hot Blogger Calendar on hotbloggercalendar.com (thank you Winter). According to their site, if you post something about the contest, you will get increased exposure from them, and therefore, possibly more votes. I'm not writing this to get more votes; I'm writing this because I think they should change the title of the calendar from Hot Blogger to Bought Blogger.

Those who have the most votes have the most "flare" about the contest on their site. They are even hosting their own contests to buy votes. I, sadly, have 2 votes. But I also have no flare on my site nor do I offer any bribes. But I also believe I should not be on this calendar for two reasons:

  1. Nobody knows what I look like. So nobody knows if I'm hot or not.
  2. There are no photos of me, so what the fuck are they going to put on the calendar?
Don't get me wrong. I understand how it works with blogging. It's all about getting traffic. By hosting this contest, Hot Blogger gets traffic. By putting up flare on your site, Hot Blogger gets traffic and you get votes, and if you get on the calendar, you get more exposure and therefore more traffic. I get it. I'm not complaining about it, I'm just calling it out.

But I still have the one complaint about the title of this contest. The "gals" who have the most votes seem to be "mommy bloggers". No offense, I mean, you gals are nice and sweet and informative. But you are not hot.  Posts about baby clothes, diets and recipes are not hot. You gals can sit around and tell each other how sexy your posts are, but it don't make it so.

So when the final tally comes out and we've got a Hot Blogger calendar full of mommy bloggers who bought their votes, I suggest you rename the calendar to something a little more appropriate. Here's a few more ideas:

  • Mommy Blogger Calendar
  • Not Hot Blogger Calendar
  • Shopping is Fun, Just Read My Latest Post Calendar
  • Being a Mommy is Fun, Just Read My Latest Post Calendar
  • I'm Not Hot, But I'm in this Calendar Anyway Calendar
  • I Bought My Spot in this Calendar Calendar
Well, maybe I should host a calendar contest myself and get some actual hot bloggers who live up to the title. Just a thought...

What about a Hot Userpool Calendar... Of course it would be a limited run and no could see it but apart from that. Oh and you'd need a 3 year calendar just to fit everyone in Jason.

I gave my vote; Jason has a whopping 3 votes now. And Tech-Babe has 4!

Vote up peoples, maybe we can finally get to meet the infamous Bonny and Clyde.

I love your brain. I think your HOT because of that so yeah I voted for you. Now you have 4. :)

My idea of hot and their idea of hot are two different things. I think Avitable is hot, and his naked pics make me shudder. However, he's hot for other reasons. Just like you are hot for other reasons.

I think I'll pimp my kid out some more and throw some crap on her blog to get her more votes. I want to see her at least beat out Dooce. I know she won't beat the Mommy Bloggers even if my kid is 19 and posts pics of her ass and her DD cleavage on her blog. I bet her and Tech-Babe are both a lot hotter than most of the others nominated. And Hilly. I think Hilly is really hot. And I love her car too.

Meh. I know it's all a big hype thing. I think I was the only one who nominated the gays and several of them are genuinely hot guys who could definitely grace a calendar.

As for you mister... I dunno. Something tells me you're hot. Bald guys with beer guts and bad breath do not get laid as much as you unless they are Donald Trump.

Tech Babe: We're racking 'em up...

Calendars: "Hot User Pool Calendar" has a very nice ring to it. Hot users the tech guys love to service... I'm considering it...

Yoji: Too kind.

Winter: There's definitely some hot nominees; it's just too bad the mommy bloggers are going to take it... And you're right. I am hot.

Settle down everyone. Don't hate me because I'm beautiful.

Lalalalala.

There needs to be an Anonymous Blogger Calender and their will just be a pic of their favorite avatar or icon.

I have no pic either unless you count my Stumble one. Not exactly hot but have had comments on the tongue.

:P

Thanks Everyone!

I'm down for a "Hot UserPool Calendar." And we should include comments from our devoted followers=)

Hmmm....wheels are churning again....just when I thought I'd catch up some sleep!

August 27, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterTech-Babe

Yes, the tongue is very good...

Jenny (http://thebloggess.com) is an exception. She's got the foulest mouth in the universe and I think she may be insane (which is why I love her). I'm mad at her though because she didn't want to play my knock-knock joke.

August 28, 2008 | Unregistered Commenteralangham

I agree. I like her post. And all that foul language makes me want to have sex with her.

August 28, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterJason X

Will the mommy bloggers be showing their breasts on that calendar? Otherwise, it makes little sense. I'm not interested in a photo of a housewife cooking kielbasa on a Maytag range. Full frontal or I'm not buying.

For sure. Sex sells. No sex, no cash from my wallet.

August 30, 2008 | Registered CommenterJason X

So what are you waiting for? Make your own calendar already.

September 2, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterSabina

Sabina, I think I must... You're right. Now I just have to do it...
