On 24-Hour Blog Day.


Here is the wrap-up for 24-Hour Blog Day 2011.

First, the concept. We got the idea from 24-Hour Comic Book Day. Basically, within a 24-hour time span we will produced 24 unique blogs on varying subjects. The topics were written down by ourselves and other non-participants and put into a box. We only knew the ones we wrote down, everything else was kept a secret. At the beginning of each hour a new topic was drawn and we had to write on that topic.

The rules were as follows:

-New post every hour

-Whatever was written as the end of the hour must be published

-No going back and changing things

-At least one paragraph

That was pretty much it.

The topics that were drawn along with corresponding hours were:

#1: Best of 2010 (11-12)
#2: Funniest Moments (12-1)
#3: When someone mentions childhood what one memory pops into your head? Explain in detail. (1-2)
#4: Methods of Destroying Traffic (2-3)
#5: Alter Egos (3-4)
#6: Friends (4-5)
#7: Write a review of your favorite movie/book/TV Show/Music (5-6)
#8: Theme Songs for Different Moods/Moments (6-7)
#9: Utopias (7-8)
#10: Where is one place you’ve always wanted to go, discuss the benefits of this place. (8-9)
#11: 12 Rhyming Couplets (9-10)
#12: Christmas (10-11)
#13: Irrational Fears (11-12)
#14: Better Creature: Dogs or Cats? (12-1)
#15: Cleveland (1-2)
#16: Mundane Talents/Skills (2-3)
#17: Someone/Something You’ve Always Wished You Were (3-4)
#18: Superpowers you either already have (or think you have), or would like to have (4-5)
#19: Write about your biggest fault (5-6)
#20: Most Influential Year In School (6-7)
#21: Pet Peeves (7-8)
#22: Awkward Moments (8-9)
#23: 80s Movies (9-10)
#24: Cartoons (10-11)

We started at 11 am on February 5, 2011 and ended 11 am February 6, 2011. Not everyone made it, but a surprising amount did. It was a ton of fun and I hope to do it again sometime soon. I will have video footage of it in a “Week In Video” soon.

Since unexpected things can happen to blogs, and none of them are self-hosted, I took the liberty of mirroring all the blogs as they were when they were written. Everything from the style of the page to the pictures are preserved forever in the annals of Killer Tofu. Anyway here are links to the mirrors as well as links to the actual blogs. Enjoy!
