Ok, who wants to play dress up?

5 days leading up to Halloween, everyone has to post on their blogs as if they were some other blogger. That's the "costume"---if you're design savvy (I am not, but many of you guys are), you can even imitate/pay tribute to the original.

Just imagine when our readership base comes for content, and gets tricked!

Thoughts?

That's actually a pretty neat idea, though it would be difficult to emulate someone else's writing style without lapsing back into your own... although I guess it's not that hard to spout words about MQoSRDPS or say that Melvin is a noob. :mrgreen:

Matt, cross dressing is right up your alley. After all, you twitter like a 16yearold teenage girl with a crush on Chris Brown.

Not quite ready to imitate the style of a real person (and not tempted either; I'm no match for the likes of you lot), nor do I have much control over the layout of my blog. However, I decided my readership needed a change of style, so I turned things over to a guest columnist, my imp. Probably not a wise move, as it turned out! :x

I changed the look of the site for the weekend (there are a couple of nice WP themes that work straight out of the box), if I tried to imitate a blogger it would probably fail miserably! My writing is far too liberally peppered with 'enthusiastic' punctuation for me to copy someone else... it just sneaks in there anyway.

Eh, I faked it. But it's something at least:

Have you read nothing of the LFG comic! Imps speak without spacing or punctuation!

Yes, but they slow down a little when they write. At least we were not subjected to his handwriting. They still can't design logos worth a darn though.
