Got your attention? Good.

Now, here's the deal: My blog must suck. Don't get me wrong, I love my blog. I enjoy making posts to it, even if it's just a bunch of nonsense. My wife even gets a kick out of watching me get all worked up over anything blog. She still loves me, however, and supports my work. After all, she understands that I am a GEEK.

Perhaps the best thing about my blog is that it gets me writing and keeps me writing. The more writing I do, the better I get. The better I get, the more people want to read. Now, I don't really care too much about receiving praise for my writing, but I at least like to know that people are out there, and reading. Therein lies the problem.

I have received a few comments to my blog posts. But wouldn't you know it, it's always SPAM, and I hate SPAM unless it's the kind between two slices of bread (with cheese...I like cheese). So, I dutifully delete the offending comment, and go on about my life.

Recently, I joined a great site for bloggers, called "BlogExplosion.com" (no, I don't get anything when you click the link). They offer a credit system for searching other blogs, which you can then use to promote your own blog. They also have a cool feature called Battle of the Blogs, where bloggers from all over wager their credits against other bloggers. The blogger with the best blog wins 75% of the credits wagered by both sides (the other 25% gets split among 15 BlogExplosion members who vote on the best blog).

I have waged three 'battles' thus far, and lost all of them. This is why I say that my blog must suck. I have even hunted for the more boring of the other blogs out there, and still can't win. I know for a fact that I am not the most interesting person out there, but am I really that boring? People I know say I'm interesting - perhaps it's just a problem translating that over the 'Net.

Here's where you can help. I'm not much for ribbon campaigns. With the amount of ribbon campaigns out there, it's hard to keep all of my colors straight. But the other nite, I surfed across one of the greatest websites I have ever seen. It was for a ribbon campaign, but one that I think a lot of us can get behind. It's called a Boobie-Thon, and the benefactor is breast cancer research.

I love the site because it is an all around a killer site - the marketing concepts, the good cause and of course, the bodacious content (I may be a GEEK, but I'm a guy first). The campaign is over now, but the site is always available. The idea is to have people (men & women) send in pics of their boobies, which are then placed on the Boobie-Thon website. The more explicit, completely bare boobie pics are placed on a 'pay per boobie' page, which can be accessed only after the visitor makes a donation of $50 or more to breast cancer research. AWESOME! Where do I sign up? The covered (even if it's just a sheer sheet) boobies are made available as samplers to anyone who visits the site.

Then I got to thinking. I decided at that point that I would run my own "Boobie Blogathon", in the hopes that it would make my blog not suck. I figure that, if I can offer pics of my reader's boobies to other readers, perhaps I could actually win a "Battle of the Blogs" battle. Perhaps the promise of free boobie pics would motivate visitors to come back more often, link to me a little more and actually vote FOR my blog.

So I started planning. Of course, my first question was, "Who in the hell would send me pic of their boobies"? Well, I'm hoping you will, but you have to hear me out first. I am not interested in porn. If you want to send me a pic of your bare boobies, far be it from me to turn it down. However, I am more interested in artistic boobies - covered with a bra, a sheet, a hand, a couple of hands, chocolate...you get the picture. I am interested in woman boobies as well as man boobies (there are a lot of female blog readers out there). Have you had surgery on your boobies? Show me. Breast enlargement gone bad? I want to see. Breast enlargement gone good? Got a case of the itty-bitty titties? So be it. The fact is, the human body is a beautiful thing, and I pride myself on being non-judgemental when it comes to shape, size, scars, etc.

Most of all, I want your TASTEFULL boobie pics. If you would like to send a message to someone, write it on your boobies and send me the pic. Want to advertise your own blog or website? Do it with boobies. Hell, show me your cat's boobies, for all I care.

All submitted pics must be original, they must be you, and you MUST be 18 years or older (and I don't care how much older, either, as long as you are at least 18 years old).

As the pics come in, I am going to put them up on a separate page. I'm not a charity, so I'm not going to charge for access to the page. Instead, I am going to make the page available only to those that frequent my blog enough to know where the secret link will be. Completely bare boobies will be placed on another page, made available only to those that make at least 10 NON-SPAM posts to my blog, and who become 'regulars' around here.

So, are you ready to send me your boobie pic? Great! You can forward your boobie pic to me at thegeek@thegeekunderground.com. How you present your boobies is completely up to you. If you want to cover them, do it creatively. If you want to bare them, just do it. If a little cleavage is all you want to share, that's cool too.

Just to kick things off, I am going to post pics of my wife's and my boobies tonite. I know she'll be up to it - she loves & supports me and my wild 'Net adventures. Besides, I may not be a 'good' cause, but I have been accused of being a 'lost' cause - at least it's a cause. I'll have the pics posted by tonite, when I update this blog once again.

Oh, and be sure to stick around to see what happens with this "BoobieBlogaThon".


No your blog doesn't suck. My own record is like 18 and 43 or soemthign stupid...

The fact is, it is very easy for people to simply vote for the blog with th ebest record, as they won't win any credits for voting for the losing blog.

However, if you think of it as 15 views for 10 credits instead of 10 views for 10 credits (transferring them in your account to your blog) then it is okay.

Best bet is to leave lots of comments on lots of blogs and maybe make some buddies :) Oh and you could look into the "Anti-house-wife Mafia" and such... heh.

Yeah, Glyn's on the right track.

I started at 2-9 or something. Being a friendly blogger helps. I recommend comments as well as the BlogExplosion Shout Box (on the Members page).
