As some of you may or may not know, I used to have a monthly feature on my blog called Throwdown Thursdays. The idea was that once a month I would put two similar things together to see who would win after three rounds. I thought this year I might try to do it as a seasonal feature but then inspiration struck during a Blog Hop Party (BHPChat) on Twitter at the end of January.
The question was:
And my response was:
I always thought it would be cool if this feature become something other people joined in on, but I honestly never thought about doing anything about it. But the beautiful thing I have learned from the internet is: build it and they
will may come.
So we’ll see how this goes!
What is it?
No matter what happens, similar things are always compared–Pepsi or Coke, limes or lemons– but EVERYONE has a preference and I want to know what yours is!
How does it Work?
Each month, there will be two pre-selected combatants of sorts who will have to battle it out. They will be general themes–like two books series or two blogging themes or two genres–but anything goes really. I give you the topic but you decide how a winner will be chosen through a series of 3 rounds to be determined by you. What those rounds are can be anything from characters to plot twists to how the books smell–anything goes! In short:
|I pick the 2 Opponents prior to the posting date||YOU pick the 3 Rounds and choose your winner||
Post and Link back to my monthly post
If you are confused or need some inspiration, check out my previous posts. You can honestly set them up however you want to. I’ve also added some tips on my meme homepage here.
When is this?
I want this to be a MONTHLY meme. Weekly memes are so hard to keep up with I think and what I envision for this feature requires a lot more writing than putting a few covers together or the like. I think by giving everyone a month, they can create amazing posts and really have time to think about what they want to write. Posts would go up on the last Thursday of every month.
Where do I find out the topics and the posting dates?
I have dedicated a whole page to this feature so you can write your posts well in advance. You can find it here!
When is the first Posting?
Right now, I would love to have posts go live on Thursday, February 5th, 2016 for the topic: Paperbacks vs Hardcovers.
Is this something you would be interested in? I would love for you to join in on the fun!
You can check out my blog page for future topics and for more information. I’d love to hear any comments/feedback/suggestions so please drop me a comment below!
I am super excited! I am drafting up my first post RIGHT NOW!
YAY! I’m glad you want to participate! I can’t wait to read it!
I like the concept. If there’s a throwdown that takes my fancy I would love to join in!
