My [erstwhile] friend and fellow blogger Hugh Paxton has thrown down a challenge. This what he said in an email I received last night:
” Hollier, I was appalled to see that your blog has had MORE hits than mine.
This is offensive and I throw down the gauntlet!
Let’s engage in a London to Brighton style Blog race (lots of cheating encouraged) Day limit 30. Let’s see who gets hits closest to 50,000 hits first!
What say you? I’m already growing my fiendish moustache! But you have the lead!
If you are on for this Blog Race I suggest that we announce it to the World at Large at your convenience and with an accepted wording when it comes to the announcement and the lack of rules. Let the horseplay begin!
Or are you a white feather yeller, Hollier?
To avoid serious cheating, I suggest comments be posted from time to time to verify that hits are proper hits.
You up for this Hollier!”
Well, of course I am. Let the games commence!
