Meet the Sporcle Blogging Contest Winner

We finally have selected a winner in our Blog About Sporcle contest that we ran for the entire month of September. We’re happy to announce that the blog winner is: A Real Housewife of Suburban, Texas. The blog’s writer, Tracey, decided to compose her own song about Sporcle called I’m N Luv (Wit a Sporcle) that’s based on T-Pain’s song I’m N Luv (Wit a Stripper). This is as close as Sporcle has ever been to the success of auto-tune, so we were honored that Tracey would think of Sporcle, and then write such an awesome song for us. If anyone wants to make a video of themselves singing along, we will definitely post it here.

We asked Tracey if she could tell us a little more about herself and how she found Sporcle. This is what she said:

Let’s see… a little about me… I live in Texas and I am a stay at
home mom. I have a one-year-old daughter named Brooklyn. My husband,
Brandon, first discovered Sporcle and introduced me to it about a year
ago. We were both hooked and have been competing against each
other ever since. I always beat him in movies and he always beats me
in sports. I found it not only a really fun way to unwind after a long
day, but a very useful teaching tool as well! I taught high school
speech and debate last year and would treat my students to a game on
Sporcle if they had been working hard lately. You should have heard
the cheers when they walked in and saw “Sporcle Day” written on the
board! Anyway, Sporcle is the only site I go to online to play games. I’ve always loved trivia and logic games
more than typical video games, and this site is perfect and can keep
me entertained for hours on end!

 
We appreciate all the other entrants, and hope to do another blogging contest again soon!
