WHAT IS THIS?

Ultimate Blogger 2

Ultimate Blogger is a fast paced 4-week competition between 12 internet pundits from around the world, all locking horns and braving carpal tunnel syndrome to win a $1,000 dollar prize package and the title of the internet's best blogger. Each week, the game's hosts, Steve Schroeder and Mike Merrill, will issue challenges to the bloggers in the form of compelling video segments, that must be interpreted and fulfilled as triumphantly as possible, then posted into Ultimate Blogger's central battle arena -- "The Den." The contestant with the best blog entry each week will be granted immunity and a safe passage to the next round. The remaining bloggers, however, will have to vote one unlucky contestant out of the game, and off the Internet -- forever.

The Players' Circle

The Ultimate Blogger Den is where the contestants have free reign. You can read, comment on, and follow their unedited challenge entries here. This is where a lot of the action takes place; beware of THE DEN! Before you know it you've spent 6 hours frantically reading every comment and all the entries!

WHO ARE YOU?

B.F.F.

We're three friends always working on various intensely time-consuming projects while working full-time, touring full-time and running a record label full-time, respectively. UrbanHonking is one of these crazy projects that we started in 2001 as a web-zine, and has now grown into a full-blown blogging community. So that explains both our interest/love of blogging and why the prize package is made up of that stuff specifically.

Mike Merrill, Steve Schroeder and Jona Bechtolt are our respective names. This season we have last year's Ultimate Blogger, James Voges, helping us create the game.
