Countdown: 21 days until the Martians invade!October 9, 2008
Be sure you’ve signed up to take part in our online challeng: Blog Like It’s The War Of The Worlds. Just add your blog’s address in the comments box and tell us you’re in and we’ll add you to the roster here on our Homepage. On October 30th, post like the Martians from H.G. Wells’ “The War of the Worlds” are really invading. Tell us what’s happening in your town as the extraterrestrial tripods trip through, wielding heat rays and gas weapons, snatching citizens for entrees, and leaving a trail of red weeds. By checking the participants’ roster here on Not A Planet Anymore, you’ll be able to follow blogs in other parts of the world. We’ll keep track of all the participants and when it’s over we’ll post highlights from all of your blogs.
We’ve embarked on this silly online odyssey to pay homage to Orson Welles, whose famous October 30, 1938 broadcast scared the pants out of thousands who tuned into his radio play late and thought it was the real thing.
The inspiration for doing a blogging challenge on this theme came from My Elves Are Different, which, for a couple of years now, has organized an annual summer zombie apocalypse called Blog Like It’s The End Of The World.
So hide the children, lock your doors, watch the skies, and join us for Blog Like It’s The War Of The Worlds! Sign up today!
