Blog Brawl round 1: Let’s take this outside!

The NCAA has their brackets, and so do we. The gloves are off. The yo-mamma jokes have been uttered. It’s time to vote.
Here’s how this works: We’ve seeded the brackets from the top vote-getter down to #32. In this round, there there are 16 contests to vote on broken out into two zones. You must vote in every pairing for each zone, and you only have to vote in one zone if you want to.
How do you decide whom to vote for?
Well, clearly you have a favorite. That’s why you’re here, right? But for all the other bloggers you don’t know about, just click their blog name to open a new window and check out their sites. Maybe he has cool pictures. Maybe her writing voice moves you. Maybe his expertise is beyond comparison. Maybe you think she’s cute. Whatever you think makes for an awesome blog, vote your opinion.
And by the way, you can only vote once per IP address. This is important: Why? Because many business offices share a single IP address, and your fellow agent in the next workspace may have already cast your office’s vote. Tough cookies. We recommend voting from home, your local internet cafe, random wireless hotspots: Heck, anywhere you can get an internet signal to cast as many votes as you want.
So, get to it! Competitors: e-mail your friends, family, neighbors, and clients. Blog about it! Put it on your Facebook page or start a Facebook group! Tweet it. Let EVERYONE know you want their votes to be named the Blog Brawl champion. But be ye warned: offers of monetary compensation in exchange for votes is grounds for disqualification.
You have until Friday, March 20 at 8:59 a.m. to vote. Round 2 of voting will begin the afternoon of Friday, March 20 and stretch through Tuesday, March 24 at 8:59 a.m.
Just as an FYI, once you complete voting in the first zone, you’ll automatically be redirected to vote in the second zone. If you complete the second zone, you’ll be directed to the Parking Lot, where you can type either “w00t!” or “holla!” for your favorite competitor, or, if you happen to be a competitor, taunt your opponents.
Okay: Enough of the blah, blah, blah. Vote now!
