Blography Challenge Update – Week 1

Blography Challenge Update – Week 1

So, its been a week since Dave and I began our game of blogging risk. As well as being very interesting to see where people are viewing this site from it has also been a remarkably informative geography lesson! I have learnt a lot more national flags, realised that I didnt really have a very good idea where a lot of places were and I even found a new country I didn’t know existed!

As a way of tracking our progress we each have copies of maps to give a good it also creates a good visualisation of where we have got to. So after 1 week, here is where I am (click on the images for bigger versions):

Europe

USA

World

To date I have 77 countries. Which means I can tick off one thing from our original list of challenges (50 countries acheived) and I’m not too far off completing Europe, the US states or the alphabet. But, now is when it will get tricky. A lot of the major countries are done and I will have to place my hope in my blog becoming massively popular with the Moldova’s and Suriname’s of the world if I am going to be able to tick off many more challenges!

Blography Challenge 2011

"One Hundred Billion Hits!"

World domination. It has been the goal of many throughout history. Some have faired better than others. But, as of tomorrow there will be two new individuals trying to conquer the world in a different way. David Robertson and I will be playing a game of ‘Blogging Risk’, which we have entitled “The Blography Challenge“.

Using Statcounter.com we will each attempt (within the month of April) to achieve the following targets [now updated slightly as I didn’t have the paper we jotted the challenges on when I wrote the post]:

1) A hit from all the states in the US

2) A country for every letter of the alphabet (except X!)

3) The first to complete each continent:

Europe

Africa

Asia

Autralasia

North America

South America

Antarctica

4) Achieving a hit from 50, 100 then 150 countries (out 0f 196)

The challenge will be scored in pints. The first person to complete each task is owed a pint by the other. At the end, we will tally up…then head to the pub!

May the best blogger win…
