Let the Madness begin!

OK, next year, no conference speakers, national ministries or the like. That sure makes it hard for the little, unknown guy to compete.


Am I talking about Blog Madness or particular SBC events? hhhmmm…..

As the mirror reflects….

I actually made the suggestion today that we make next year’s tourney a “Regular Bloggers” tourney. Of course, that would be difficult to judge. Who is a big name and who isn’t?

4 Mark March 25, 2011 at 12:09 am

It would be difficult. I was too busy this year to ask for votes and stuff. It’s all in good fun.

Well, my furious vote lobbying didn’t get me past round one, but I did have a lot of fun.

Win a FREE BOOK at my website http://selahvtoday.typepad.com in honor of my hubby’s 68th Birthday on April Fool’s Day. Come by and write an acrostic on H E A V E N. selahV Today

Thanks everyone who voted for me this year. I plan on writing an indepth analysis of why the SBC is marginalizing women writers in their blogging contests. ha ha ha. :) wait for it dudes. wait for it…ha ha ha

THANK YOU to everyone who voted for me! As they say, “It’s an honor to be nominated!” :-)

8 Mike Leake March 25, 2011 at 9:21 am

I am shocked and honored to make it to round 2. No way I take down the mighty Stetzer…unless I call in a few favors from that Libyan prince I helped out through email a few years ago.

9 Dave Miller March 25, 2011 at 12:06 pm

Hey, last night after I voted you were ahead of Ed! (2-1, but that could be a trend!)

10 Tony Kummer March 27, 2011 at 11:45 pm

I’d love to have your votes in the West regional for Ministry-To-Children. We don’t debate much on SBC type issues, but are helping many thousands of people do kids ministry every week.

Shameless plug here: VOTE FOR MIKE!

Ed Stetzer, B-21, and the Founders are all great blogs and worthy of respect.

But I’d love to see one of our contributors, Mike Leake, make the final four. I know it is unethical for the editor of SBC Voices to be plugging a blog here. But we ENCOURAGE shameless electioneering in Blog Madness!

So, lets put Mike Leake in the Final Four.

And, while you are at it, put Tony Kummer’s Ministry-to-children there as well!

C’mon, just do it!

12 Mike Leake March 28, 2011 at 12:13 pm

Thanks for the shameless plug!! I really appreciate it.

13 Tony K March 28, 2011 at 3:49 pm

Thanks for the endorsement. I really do need to start paying you for editing this website!

14 JephRBNY March 31, 2011 at 3:44 pm

I think Dr. Moore will make it to the win.

15 Barry Wallace April 1, 2011 at 12:41 pm

Wow. Put me in the East next year. Even though I made no mention of the competition to anyone, I would have still made it to the second round!
