BlogExplosion: Battle of the Blogs

I've been blogging like crazy lately, but writing not so much. Procrastinating by dashing off quick little blurbs and reading other people's blogs instead of settling down with my journal to really work. There's some interesting writing out there in the Blogosphere, but the Catch-22 is that most of the people who want to drive traffic to their blogs, and therefore are more readily found, are doing some form of paid blogging and are not really focused on the quality of their content. I can't claim to be above it all...I've latched onto March Madness perfect bracket contests and the Eliot Spitzer hooker scandal to deliver readers to Roxiticus Desperate Housewives. However, a couple of weeks ago, I discovered Battle of the Blogs on BlogExplosion (see link in my sidebar). Previously, I only discovered new blogs and earned credits to drive traffic to my own blog via surfing. I've found that the people who are ready to put buckets of their own credits on the line in the Battle of the Blogs tend to work harder on their content. If Battle of the Bloggers are paid posties, they tend to be the best of the paid posties and it is entertaining to see how they weave their key words into their everyday posts. For my part, I try to come up with a new post before I put on my SWAT gear to take on another blogger by creating or accept a challenge. You'll have to be the judge of whether that content is any good.
