The Blog Games Season 1: Week 2!

Week of April 13th - April 19, 2021

Please read our introduction blog for information if you are new to this event.  The deadline for blogs is 12 AM EST/5 AM BST/9 PM PST on Tuesdays (Monday for PST).

Blog Rank 5! - MG17: Brazilian National Parks - Pictures and Info! #Part 2

Ethaboo's Criteria Grading:

9/10: Formatting - The formatting is really nice, and the images give a very nice and simple touch to the blog.

7/10: Grammar - The grammar could still use some work but is still very nice.

9/10: Appeal - The appeal is great since the last blog of this series has been so great.

10/10: Content/Information - There is a LOT of content and information in this blog with all of the facts and many other things about these national parks.

8/10: Creativity/Uniqueness - This is pretty unique, but does lose some points because of previous national park blogs.

Overall, I really love this blog, just like the last one and I cannot wait to read about more Brazilian national parks because the US ones are not spread out and almost none are in the north-east!

ChineseChen's Criteria Grading:

8/10: Formatting - Very nice use of dividers and split view, although the place where the split view meets the text box has a little gap.

6/10: Grammar - Better than the first part

8/10: Appeal

10/10: Content/Information - Lots of content and nice pictures

7/10: Creativity/Uniqueness

Blog Rank 4! - baptistegorce: Interview of a JetPunker #12 - Crem

Ethaboo's Criteria Grading:

7/10: Formatting - Even though this blog is very entertaining, there isn't too much formatting with the blog, which is pretty understandable.

8/10: Grammar

9/10: Appeal - Just like the Brazilian National Park blogs, the appeal is very great with all of the previous ones that are very entertaining to read and know a little bit more about JetPunkers.

9/10: Content/Information

9/10: Creativity/Uniqueness - Obviously, the creativity is very high.

ChineseChen's Criteria Grading:

7/10: Formatting

Blog Rank 3! - HelveticaBold: Logical fallacy analogies

Ethaboo's Criteria Grading:

8/10: Formatting - The custom formatting is nice, just not that noticable.

8/10: Grammar - The grammar is also nice.

7/10: Appeal - The appeal is nice, just when I don't understand something that well it doesn't appeal to me that much.

10/10: Content/Information - There is TONS of content in this blog, and overall really enjoyed it although it still confuses me a little.

9/10: Creativity/Uniqueness - This to me is very unique.

Ethaboo's Criteria Grading:

9/10: Formatting - The formatting is really nice, neat, and organized.

9/10: Grammar - The grammar is also really nice, and doesn't make it feel like it is a new blogger!

8/10: Appeal - Although I am not really into sports and sports blogs, I could imagine others enjoying this blog just as much as the creator of it.

8/10: Content/Information

9/10: Creativity/Uniqueness

ChineseChen's Criteria Grading:

8/10: Formatting

Honorable Mentions

Before we get into the number one blog this week, I would like to introduce the 3 honorable mentions for this week! Also, the honorable mentions will NOT actually be based on the criteria, just my opinion on the blog. But I will be rating them on the criteria. For the first honorable mention, I would like to present...

Jetpunker180 - Meanings and Stories behind Country Names

This blog I really loved and was very nice. The dividers in the blog are probably the most distinct. Although, at the end of the blog when you scroll to the comments, you are greeted with a whole splash of different colors and rainbow text, too much for my eyes to take. Overall, this blog got a score of 81/100, a very good score for just the second week of the Blog Games as the Blog Update is starting to settle down.

FacterLiger0804 - What if the Dinosaurs Still Existed? - #1

The blog seems a bit unreal for a new blogger, and I especially enjoyed the dividers at the beginning and the end of the blog, and give it a nice touch. The rest of the formatting was also really nice with the new split view feature with the Blog Update, and many others. But, the appeal and creativity could use just a little bit more work. Overall, this got a 76/100.

BigGeographyGuy - What if the Portuguese Empire Reunited Today?

The final honorable mention is a part of a series BigGeographyGuy makes, what is an empire reunited. I have seen this sort of content on Youtube before, and the creativity is a little depleted because of that. Also, the formatting could also use a little but more work, but other than that, everything else was very good. This blog got a 75/100.

Blog Rank 1! - Malkiboy: JetPunkland (#8) - Puzzle Piazza - Part 1

JetPunkland (#8) - Puzzle Piazza - Part 1

Malkiboy

Overall Score: 90/100

We have some bad news: due to JetPunkland being rank 1 two weeks in a row, we have decided to exclude it from the Blog Games top 5 to give other people a chance at being in the top 5. But, it can still be an honorable mention. This doesn't mean that JetPunkland isn't good though!

Ethaboo's Criteria Grading:

8/10: Formatting - The formatting had a lot more nicer touches to make it look more colorful and enjoyable.

9/10: Grammar - The grammar is very good, especially for a very well-detailed and long blog.

9/10: Appeal - Obviously, like many other blogs in a series, if the previous episodes are good, the appeal is going to be good.

10/10: Content/Information - Nothing I need to say about this one

9/10: Creativity/Uniqueness

ChineseChen's Criteria Grading:

8/10: Formatting

9/10: Grammar 

9/10: Appeal - Interesting as always

10/10: Content/Information - Broke Malkiboys' old 30k character record

9/10: Creativity/Uniqueness

Welcome New Bloggers!

michaelngwa - The Official Unofficial Study of Momentum in Sports

Very nice first blog, the concept is very new to JetPunk. This blog got 85/100.

Nazgul - THE TALES OF LE MAFIA - LEGENDARY MECHANIC #1

This blog is a simple script. Our only complaint is that the script is messy and a bit hard to read. 67/100

Any blogs that are labeled as "Milestone Blogs" won't be graded on the criteria as it doesn't seem correct to grade a blog just celebrating a milestone and saying a simple thank you. But, I still feel the need to welcome them to the blogging community!

Welcome to all new bloggers, and I hope you can make more great blogs in the future!

Blog News!

We have decided to exclude series that have been in the Top 5 for two weeks in a row. This is to allow other blogs to have a chance. However, these series will still be eligible for Honorable Mentions. JetPunkland is such a series. This doesn't mean that these series aren't good though!

Conclusion

I thank you for reading this week's Blog Games! Hopefully next week the blogs can be better than ever. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please state in the comments. We hope you enjoyed! Bye!

Thanks for rank 5! I want to know what grammar mistakes I did. Maybe because of Portuguese names, it become strange for English Grammar. I'm just doing part 3, and I need to be better. Glad I did great in this time!

If you mind my opinion at all, I severely disagree with your sticky comment. I like hearing actual perspectives. Likes are a tricky, very unacurrate way to judge blogs. Sometimes people love blogs but forget to like, while others feel the same way but just don't have an account. If you gave motivation for people to make alt accounts so they could like, I would definitely disapprove. There is also the factor of a user with bigger quizzes who has a more clicked on profile, not even considering subscribers. Etc. Sorry for my disapproval, but I felt I had to address this even if you two don't care (though you have a tendency like many others to be ten times more mature than me, even if I am older. You know what, I'm probably just being a baby.). Despite all this, I look forward to more weekly games and commentary! :)

I might agree with you, but things that are new we are testing out, if a lot of people are complaining about the thing we implement into our blogs, we might trash the idea and think of something that the community will like.

also, week 3 ChineseChen will be posting for next week so we can test out new styles with HTML. If not on Week 3, he will be posting Week 4. But yes, we might consider that idea :)
