RIP Hyperbole and a Half: Let the Game of Blogs Begin

It has been a year and a half since the last update from Hyperbole and a Half.  There have been intermittent sightings on Google+ and Reddit, but there has been no public activity from Allie Brosh in ages...

At this point, a search party would be called off, and the cadaver dogs would be called in.

I am sorry to say...

...with a heavy heart...

...I think the queen of the blogosphere may be dead.

...and if she's not dead, her blog definitely is.

Her last post focused on depression, and it could easily be the case that she's fighting her demons before she returns to the public eye.

Either that or she's discovered Skyrim and is completely hooked...  I too have wasted hours playing silly games on my computer...

(ask me about my Plants vs Zombies trophies)

But her absence is disturbing.  With nearly 200 million pageviews and thousands of comments on every single post, she was undisputably the ruler of the blogging world.

After time, the kingdom needs to move on...

...and we need a new ruler.

The mythical Keyboard Throne has been empty for too long...

...and with that, let the Game of Blogs begin.

I will tend to the throne while we choose our new leader.  I do not wish to hold the title, as I would not be the best king for the realm.  I will, however, manage things until a new ruler is chosen.

...will it be you?

Submit your blog on the widget below.  Voting will begin on March 22nd, and be open for two weeks.  Tell your friends, tell your fans to come and vote.

Like a normal war, the smartest commander will likely win.  It is a numbers game, but there is also strategy.

But honestly, it's a numbers game.  Whomever gets the most votes will be considered king/queen of blogs, and will be idolized by all.

Do you have what it takes?

If not, who do you wish to lead us all?

Let the Game of Blogs begin.  I wish you all the best of luck, and may your rule be as just (and as fruitful) as Allie and Hyperbole and a Half's reign was.

The queen is dead.  Long live... you.

(Make sure to promote this contest on your blog.  After all, you need votes to win...)
