Show & Tell: Name That Blogger!

April 18, 2009

in Name That Blogger!, Show & Tell

I inadvertently invented a new game, which I’m showing and telling and unveiling today.

I recently sent Melissa an email to ask her to list in Lost & Found a Kirtsy-worthy post I’d read, one that I found highly sharable. I included a little blurb about the post to save her some time writing it up.

Problem was, I forgot to send her the link.

She wrote back to say, in essence, “Huhhhh??”

Instead of just saying I was an idiot, I snarkily told her that it was a new game. She had to guess the blogger and guess the post.

Voila. She wants to take me up on it. Want to join the ride?

Find the blogger and the post. Your universe is the ALI blogroll, something posted in the last 7 days. You get up to 2 guesses per day. A new clue will go up each morning around 8 am MDT (Sunday’s may be a little later).

If you play, you are eligible to put this button on your blog. Please help spread the word!

Here’s a clue for the first round of Name That Blogger!

Clue #1: Socks (doesn’t narrow it down much, huh? hehe.)

Leave in a comment your guess that includes:

  1. The blog name
  2. The post title
  3. The post’s URL

Happy hunting!

Also: feel free to host your own Name That Blogger! contest on your own blog anytime you find a blogger/post you want to spotlight (in a diffused-light kind of way).

To see the showing and tellings of the rest of the class, visit Mel’s Show & Tell.

Oh you suck with that first clue. When I think of socks, I actually think of Nancy and her roller derby socks, so I’m going with Baby Smiling in Back Seat’s sock post:

Is it the blog about the sock exchange? Was that Thanksgiving Mom or Beautiful Mess that posted about that?

That’s you Lori – taking those lemons and making sweet, if not mysterious lemonade again!

Hmmm…I say Kristin – Dragondreamer’s Lair- and bleh- I can’t remember the post name.

Hmmm…that clue makes me think of someone you and I met in person a while back. At the live music place? I don’t want to spoil the fun, so I won’t say my guess out loud. Unless I’m not even close.

Is my cryptic answer as cryptic as your clue?

I know I’m late in the game and I won’t comment until I’ve got all caught up on your other entries, but this is a fun game!

What a fun way to encourage more reading through the blogs! I’d take a few guesses this week, except with the recent frenzy of socks going around on my blog recently, those clues could indicate any number of bloggers!
