Blog posts tagged "challenge"

This post is the fifth day of VisitorGrid Week. For more information, read the post linked to right there.

Continuing along with the blogging theme, now that you know why you should blog and you have a blog, I'm going to make a little reward-type-thing.

You must write a post on you blog relating to the number four. Not just any post, not a spam post, a good post. No wait, a great post. If you do, post a link to it in this post's comments, I'll look over it, and if it's good, I'll pingback it.

So, there are the terms. You write a good post relating to the number four, I'll pingback your blog, providing you with more traffic. I'll generally post the Pingbacks on Saturday along with the weekly poll.

So, like the idea? Well, good. Now get blogging. This offer does not expire.

I've been reading a blog recently called Lorelle on Wordpress. It's a blog about blogging, and it's UBER GOOD. I don't know why, but it's like a jinxed book. I can't get off of it, there's so much good content on it.

Even if you do not have a Wordpress blog (like me), I'd still suggest Lorelle on Wordpress. Not everything posted there is strictly Wordpress related (like the title of this post, for example). A lot of it is just blogging in general.

And that brings me to the second point of this post. Dually inspired by Lorelle's "Blog Challenge" series (a type of post challenging you to post something belonging to some criteria on your blog--besides being fun, it gives you post ideas) and the comment thread of Dream Weaver's Entry 2 - "Are all Angels bad?", I've created a challenge of my own. But, since I don't want to copy Lorelle completely, I've decided I won't do a blog challenge. No, I'll do a comment challenge.

I want you to find a post on some blog (not on your own blog!) with some content that you can really reply to. Write a very long comment on it, like the ones on the DW post. Make sure you fill out the "Post Comment" form with your website's address in it, because when you write your comment, you need to comment on this post with the URL to the blog post you commented on and the username you are going as. Then, if your comment strikes me as particularly well thought-out and long, I'll post a link to your blog on my blog.

This challenge expires in exactly one month. I think it'll be interesting to see who actually cares enough about getting their blog linked to to actually manage to complete this challenge within the time limit. After the 30 days are up, I will take a day to judge, and then I'll post the results the day after. And comments posts exactly 30 days after this post will be rendered invalid.

Gosh, I think I'm updating a little fast now, don't you think? Anyway, another challenge has been released! (By the way, sorry about Lofofo, it's dead, but this one won't be, promise)

Do you like programming? Yes? (If you answer no to any of these questions you should skip this paragraph and the one following it) How about esotoric ones? How about HIGHLY esotoric ones? Still yes? Well then, have I got a treat for you!

I've a translator language (sorry guys, no compiler yet, will get there sometime) called Single Four AND IT IS INSANE. How insane? Well, let's take the example of the simplest program to code, a program that prints "Hello World!" to the screen and then quits. I managed to write that in Single Four, but even after I found a few tricks to lessen the size of the code, it was still 482 LINES OF CODE LONG! So, if you like languages that are a challenge to program in, go to the Challenges section and click "Single Four"!

(NOTE: If JAL is reading this, you still need to email me the logo you want for Wikipinia)

Have some extra time to spare? Then why not do this:

  1. Write or type out the word 'longcat'.
  2. Replace the N with the letter x spaces after N in the alphabet, where x is my favorite number plus 1.
  3. Swap the T with the G.
  4. Add a '/' to the end.
  5. Replace the C with a '.'.
  6. Add jj to the end where j is = (x+1).
  7. Replace the A with the letter y spaces after A in the alphabet, where y is my favorite number.
  8. Add x to the end.
  9. Replace the G with the letter z spaces after G in the alphabet, where z is = (2x+y).
  10. Add kl to the end where k is the letter of the alphabet at position (y/2), and l is the letter of the alphabet at position (k+1).
  11. Reverse the last three characters.
  12. Type the result in the address bar and see what happens.

Please try this! It's interesting, and it took me quite awhile to think up that riddle!
