Countdown: 14 days until the Martians invade!October 16, 2008
Are you ready for the Blog Like It’s The War Of The Worlds online challenge? Just two weeks until the Martian war machines come a-knockin’. Have you figured out what you’re going to do?
Help us commemorate the 70th anniversary of Orson Welles’ infamous “War of the Worlds” broadcast. On October 30th, we’ll be blogging like the Martians are really invading. You’ll hear what’s happening in our neck of the woods as the tripods come thundering through levelling everything in their path with heat rays and supping on any poor humans who get in the way. Join in the fun and tell us on your blog how the War of the Worlds goes down in your community. Leave us a note here in the comments section telling us you’re in and letting us know where to find your blog. We’ll post a link to your blog on our participants’ list so others checking in can read your of your adventures (or misadventures if you’re caught too near a landing site). When it’s all over, we’ll post highlights from all of our participants’ blogs. The more blogs that participate, the more fun it’ll be, so let us know you’re in!
Two weeks until the Martians come.
“No one would have believed… that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man’s and yet as mortal as his own…”
