So in celebration of the 20,000 views milestone achieved, I think y’all need a better name for yourselves.
It’s not that I mind calling you guys You Guys, but you’d think that those of you who come back time and again should have a cooler name than something I yell out to random groups of people of indeterminate gender.
And it’s not like other internet sensations don’t have pet names for their peeps. I mean, Tobuscus has his Audience, Pewdiepie has his Bros, Cake Wrecks’ Jen Yates has her Wreckerators, My Drunk Kitchen’s Hannah Harto has her Hartosexuals, and The Bloggess has her Lawsbians. Now granted, they have millions of followers, but you get to say you knew me when, right? You guys need something awesome, something that recognizes you for being the amazeballs people you are, something that in some way refers to geekiness or zillaness. You need something better than just the generic You Guys.
So here’s the deal. As we all know, I am the Laziest Person Alive®, so while I COULD come up with something creative and awesome, I’m a bum. But in all reality (because seriously, I can justify just about anything if it means I don’t have to leave the couch. Or think.), you should decide what your name should be. Weren’t there times when you were a kid when you wished you could have picked your own name? I know many a day when I wished I could have been a Siobhan. Or Mozambique. But I was kind of weird, so maybe that’s not the best example.
What I’m getting at is, rather than me picking a name for you, why don’t you take the power into your own hands? What would you want to be known as? When you’re presenting yourself as a fan of Nagzilla, how do you want to be listed? Kind of like how Andrea would rather be known as a Brony than a Pegasister because it just sounds cooler. You get the POWER TO CHOOSE!!!
So here’s the contest. You nominate a clever and awesome name for yourselves. You can either put it in the comments here, you can email it to me at nagzillablog at gmail dot com, or you can post it on the Nagzilla fan page on facebook. I’ll narrow the field to my favorite top (insert number here- depends on how much awesomeness you give me) and let y’all vote. And unlike my high school principal, who vetoed our graduation gown choices of pine green and maroon, if y’all vote on it, the vote stands. If it’s weird, that’s all on you.
And as an added bonus, I’ll make it worth your while. The winner of the name contest will get gift certificates to my two favorite things related to this blog. You’ll receive a $25 gift card to Dollar Tree (so you can buy $25 worth of weirdness or functionality- your choice!) AND you’ll get a $25 gift card to my favorite online store, thinkgeek.com. That’s $50 worth of awesome, You Guys! Depending on how many entries and my personal preferences, I may also award special honorary prizes or consolation prizes. Added bonus, if you have a blog and your entry makes it into the top (insert number here) I’ll totally pimp out your blog on both this page and on my facebook page. If you don’t have a blog, I’ll just give you major props for being awesomesauce.
Entries are open now and I’ll take nominations through Friday, September 27th at 6:00 p.m. CDT. Then I’ll open up the voting on Monday, September 30th and you’ll have until Friday, October 11th to make your voice heard. I’ll announce the winner on Monday, October 21st.
Get your creativity caps on and give me something good.
