Today is the Day!

Well folks, I hope you all will enjoy this tournament. I think there are 2 really cool factors involved here (along with many others!):
1. A tournament where you are playing your peers in the blog world. This one is for braggin' rights fellas!
2. A contest where you can (as much as possible) control your destiny. You see other contests out there that have contests where they will draw a name out of a hat. Here, if ya got the skillz, you got the prize!

I'll get some final numbers for you all after the tourney, but here's one stat here: Over 2,200 registrants with almost 1,500 registered! Great turnout!

Good Luck to you all and check back here after the tourney so I can award the referrers, the what makes a good blog tourney and a wrap-up.

Enjoy the tourney!

  • How about some honorable mention blogs. It's understood you couldn't give prizes out to EVERY site, but I'd like to see who gets the thumbs up from ps support.

  • I've got the feeling that the first out is going to get more inbound links than anyone!

    Anyway GLA and Remember Rule 23.

    (Busted out 365 - I will go out ahead of you eventually, Wil Wheaton!)

  • That was probably the most fun I've ever had playing a tourney on stars. Finished 9th for an xbox306.

    Thanks a million for putting this together. Great job, guys.

  • Crap.

    That was the most fun I've ever had in a tournament... despite busting out at 906.

    Congrats to all the prize winners... as well as Wil Wheaton, who I swore would bust out before I did.
