Just curious

I was just a little curious about a few things pertaining to the daily trivia quiz I have been hosting.
  • Do I need to keep reminding everyone about it via the footnote down there on every one of my posts?  I'm pretty sure someone said they were using that as a reminder, but I also have a tab for it on the top of my header pic.  I have it set up as a template, so I'm not typing that or cutting and pasting it everyday.  So it isn't a big deal to keep it there.  I was just wondering.
  • Does anyone out there notice that I change the second sentence in that footnote on every new post?  I put almost no work into it, but dammit I want to know that someone notices!
  • Is anyone interested in taking over the hosting duties for the month of June?  The site allows the administrator, me, the option of turning over that responsibility to someone else.  I still enjoy doing it, but if anyone else wants to run it for a month, please let me know.  It's not very hard.  All you have to do is pick the daily topics and, with the help of suggestions from the madding crowd, a custom topic for each Wednesday. 


Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. Is anyone reading this?

I have noticed the change in sentences and daily plugging of the quiz. And find them quite clever.

however, no, not a big joiner in the actual quizzes.

do enjoy your blog though.

and glad you finally came out as bi-curious, i knew that thing with you and Slyde was not strictly platonic.

oh wait, you only said curious.

nevermind . . . . .

I am such a negative person...

I do notice that you change the notices but then again I am a stickler for details and master of subtle humor, most of which is only funny to me.

I'm simplifying, so, no.

Jebus Crast, I'm an asshoole!

badgerdaddy said...

Yes, I always read that sentence. The order of the morning for me is usually: Sports news followed by your blog (and Slyde's if he posts), then trivia challenge.

LegalMist said...

I don't *need* the reminder; the trivia tab at the top is enough. But I do enjoy your clever second sentence every day...

And also if you get new readers, it might be helpful for them?

No I don't want to host for June, but thanks for the offer. I'll keep playing, though. :)

Avitable said...

I don't need the reminder, but I think it's nice to keep it up for new readers. I love that you change the second sentence every time. And I don't want to host it.

The sentence change is always funny! You definitely don't want me doing any hosting. :P

I'll host it if your goal is to have the thing crash and burn in about three days. In other words, no. I am lazy and not to be trusted with such responsibility.

I never noticed the tab, bit now that I know it's there I'd like to think I could figure it out. I do, however, enjoy the second sentence.

Holly - it's our dirty secret. Shh.

RW - At least you are consistent.

Wil - you are the master of subtle humor!

Steph - Nothing wrong with saying no every now and again.

badger - I usually read about baseball before anything too.

Mist - I guess I had resigned myself to having no more new readers since I don't actively search out other blogs any more, but I hear ya.

Avitable - see my comment above. ;)

Limpy - sounds like I won't be changing a thing. And here I thought change was good.

Verdant Earl said...

Sybil - oops! Missed you there. Now I have nothing to say. Crap!

That Hank said...

I notice the changes and always click the bottom link to get there. I also am only online on the weekends from time to time, so my scores are always lower than they could be. So it goes!

Verdant Earl said...

DG - hey, even I miss a day here and there. I think I missed the first day in May. As you it goes.

Dr Zibbs said...

Since we're on this topic did you see that Slyde only got 2 correct on the last quiz????

I only got 5 but I wasn't concentrating but 2?

Verdant Earl said...

Zibbs - hey, I only got 3 right yesterday so I ain't throwing stones. :)

Callie said...

I do notice your sentence every day. I've also seen the tab. I only play when it's something I think I'll do well on. Failure intimidates me.

And, as much as I do enjoy trivia, I don't think I'd enjoy hosting the challenge. Sadly, I can't even get myself to post on my blog every day. This much responsibility would make me a frightful mess.

Verdant Earl said...

Callie - daily blog posting isn't easy. I go about 5 days a week and leave the weekends for myself. Blog-free.

Mik said...

I've noticed the footer but only just now registered and did the quiz.

As for the bottom, "All the ___________ are doing it!" thingy, it's the only reason I come here. So...yeah...I notice!

Michelle said...


Happy Evening!!!

I do not do the quiz. I forget!!!

Verdant Earl said...

Mik - about time. ;)

WLC - I do it for you and for you alone, my friend.

Michelle - well, wake the fuck up! :)

Uhm. I notice it NOW.
