Gary Pennick has shown up on Amlokiblogs twice in the past month, once for the very successful Anti Blogfest Gary Fest and the other time for his poetic guest post. But Gary isn't Gary if he doesn't air his satirical side a bit (and we all love him for it), and he's here to announce the Blogger's Got Talent Audition Categories!
1: The Incredibly Sarcastic Blogger, category. Ideally, we are looking for a blogger who claims to have never been sarcastic in their life, ever!
2: The Amazingly Funny Blogger, category. We are looking for somebody who thinks they are funny, but beyond their delusion, admits they aren't funny at all.
3: The Sickly Sweet Poetry Blogger, category. We are seeking a poetry blogger whose words doth make us want to violently throw up.
4: The Self-Obsessed Blogger, category. We are searching for a blogger who disregards the comments on their site. Never lowers themselves to comment on other sites and constantly talks about their favourite subject, them!
5: The Blatant Self-Promoting Blogger, category. This category would have us find the very best at constantly drawing attention to their blog by setting up various blog challenges, blog hops and anything related to the alphabet.
6: The Anarchy Blogger, category. We'd like to discover a blogger who breaks all the rules and mocks those who'd attempt to use correct grammar. Somebody who uses run-on sentences that go on and on and on and on and then some more and without the use of commas but actually ends abruptly with an exclamation mark or three!!!
7: The Boring Blogger, category. Hopefully, we can find somebody who talks about their cats, their fun times at the fast-food restaurant with the kids and the thrill of getting another Justin Bieber poster.
8 : The Ironic Blogger, category. This category would like to hear from bloggers who can discuss situations such as the time they got knocked over by an ambulance.
9: The Procrastination Blogger, category. We'll wait patiently for a blogger to step forward in that category. Maybe they will tomorrow or the next day or the.....
10: The Cynical Blogger, category. This is the category where we find a blogger who thinks that those who set up blog challenges, blog hops, blogfests and other competitions, are making out like they are demonstrating the ideals of a sharing, caring blogging community. The cynical blogger might state that they are really trying to draw attention to themselves and accumulate more followers.So there are the ten categories. At the end of the Blogger's Got Talent season, we'll have the ultimate winner. I wonder if you would audition for any of those categories?
Greetings, I have been honoured to have my blog "klahanie" featured on the B.B.C.'s radio station 'Radio 5 Live'. On a show titled: "Pods and Blogs", I tried to highlight in my interview, that it's time to eliminate the unfair stigma that's still attached to mental health issues. I firmly believe that the media can help redress the balance. How about sensationalizing the positive recovery stories rather than the negative stereotypes that people with mental health issues have to endure? I am a man challenging his "inner critic." I will not 'surrender' to my symptoms. I give myself permission to be positive. I try to live my life with realistic positive anticipation, rather than, negative speculation. We all have the right to peace and contentment. I want to give others positive affirmations. I am not daunted by my loneliness. For in my solitude, I have discovered a determined resilience. I care passionately for people who have been undermined in an unjust world. I challenge the stigma that still surrounds mental health issues.
My blog's name "klahanie" comes from the Chinook tribe located on the Pacific Northwest of North America, and is widely accepted as meaning, "the great outdoors."
