If Blogging Invaded TV Shows

If Blogging Invaded TV Shows:


Local newspaper reporter Susie Stackedhouse knows how it feels to be an outcast. “Cursed” with the ability to post three times a day, she starts a blog about vampires and vampire culture. When  vampire/blogger Burt Romperton, a handsome 173-year-old living vamp comes to town, Susie is drawn into a series of journal blogs surrounding Burt’s mysterious penchant for only posting at night. Add in a blogging werewolf, several video blogging fairies, and a Tumblr addict shapeshifter, and Susie’s world will never be the same again.


The Blogging Dead tells the story of the months and years that follow after the internet is destroyed. A group of bloggers, led by a ranter blogger, Dick Grimey, travel in search of a new internet connection. Along the way they encounter dangerous groups of people with no internet…and nothing to do. This new people just stumble aimlessly around, lost and growling, looking for something…The group must survive these internet-less zombies…and each other…


“Blogging Bad” follows protagonist Willy Whipple, a copyright editor who lives in New Mexico with his wife  and teenage son who has dyslexia. Whipple is diagnosed with Stage 12 cancer and given a prognosis of two months left to live. With a new sense of fearlessness based on his medical prognosis, and a desire to secure his family’s financial security, Whipple chooses to enter a dangerous world of blogging with Amazon Advertisers to help pay the bills. The series explores how a copyright editor such as Whipple releases a typical How-To blogger from the daily care free post-whenever-the-wind-blows-world and follows his transformation into corporate spokesperson.


The show revolves around the conflicted world of Dude Dabbler, the biggest blogger in the business, and his co-writers. As Dude makes the decisions on which articles to post, he struggles to stay a step ahead of the rapidly changing social media fickle times and the young bloggers who just want to post boob pictures nipping at his heels.


Summers with kids out of school seem to span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Blogging Throne has begun. It will stretch from the south, where budding recipe bloggers think they should publish a cookbook; to the vast and savage eastern lands filled with fashion bloggers; all the way to the frozen north. Sex Bloggers, Ranters, Mommy Bloggers, Travel Bloggers, Reviewers, …all will play the “Game of Blogs.”


For Sammy and Rudolph, the awkwardness of being the new bloggers is made worse by the fact that their dad has taken a job as the High School Journalism teacher. The school is one big culture shock for Sammy, a sweet and friendly blogger with a passion for cutting and pasting google images, and Rudolph, a wiz at blogging lists, and who was adopted by the Wilton family after they took him in as a foster child. Sammy and Rudolph have a close sibling relationship, which they’ll need to help them cope with all the teen bloggers, including Naomi, who doesn’t use her real name on her blog; Erik, a popular video game reviewer; David, an aspiring blog journalist who heads up the school’s stamp collecting club; and Goldy, a rebel who produces and stars in a YouTube-type video series. The Wilton family has just begun to realize how much their lives are about to be published.

    Do you tag every single one of your posts with “boobs”?

    I blame CNN for starting this trend with their iReport or whatever it is.
    Another fine example of art imitating crap.

    Can’t wait to see Joss Wheedon’ entry into the genre!
    (Buffy the Blog Slayer?)
    (Blogger woman?)

      They will just take his blogging shows off the air before their due.

    These are hilarious, Chris. You are a genius, my good man. I haven’t watched a TV show on a TV in a long time (it’s harder in Korea) but The Blogging Dead might just bring me back. Just pitch it to J.J. Abrams, is all I’m saying.

      If he excepts, I’ll need a writing partner…do you know any? 😉

    ” young bloggers who just want to post boob pictures nipping at his heels,” Hahahaha! Loved this one, Chris.

    Your mind is a clever thing Mr DeVoss! I can see these happening next fall!

    • Christopher De Voss August 29, 2013 at 3:02 PM #

    I think The Blogging Dead has legs, so to speak – brilliant!

  7. ohlidia August 29, 2013 at 9:42 PM #

    Oh, this is great! You’ve got talent!

    a) Not enought zombies
    b) I was glad to see I didn’t fit any particular category in the Game of Blogs. I occasionaly blog about sex, I occasionally rant, but I won’t be pigeonholed!

    Very sharp and observant.

    very funny and i would lk to add my series pitch for the ‘real housewives of blogging,’ no designer clothes needed, only fuzzy robe and slippers, microwaved coffee, blogging interrupted by calls from school with sick kids, bitch fights over who used who’s ideas for the blogs, on and on –

    Funny. Like in a pregnant lady crossing her legs out of desperation, leaning against the door frame laughing funny.

  11. The Bumble Files August 30, 2013 at 3:07 PM #

    Hahaha!! The Blogging Dead is my favorite. This is perfect!

  12. Ervin Sholpnick August 30, 2013 at 11:05 PM #

    I’m a really big Blogging Dead fan.

  13. Scotch Jameson August 31, 2013 at 12:30 AM #

    Ingenious post, Chris, the way you combined these ideas into something so witty and explored the topic a while. Just wondering if maybe the survivors might take to peer-to-peer networking, which is curiously and oddly being banned in a places. Could this be the one last shelter for un-zombie-fied bloggers?

    Blogging Dead, that one had my laughing until tears came into my eyes. You’re brilliant!

  15. Sandee September 2, 2013 at 12:17 PM #

    That “The Blogging Dead” one — whooo! — frightening!

  16. Kendall F. Person, thepublicblogger September 3, 2013 at 1:03 AM #

    This is classic Christopher. The multi scenarios you came up with is genius.

    This is brilliant! If your brain could do that imprint thing on someone else’s brain you could make a fortune just selling 10 second increments for us all to become better writers.
    I love this piece.

    • Christopher De Voss September 3, 2013 at 2:06 PM #

      Thank you. There are much better writers than me.

      • silkpurseproductions September 3, 2013 at 2:55 PM #

        Perhaps…but would they have thought of that theme? Don’t be modest. It was a great post.

      • Christopher De Voss September 3, 2013 at 3:10 PM #

        Thank you. You rock!

  18. Eric Tonningsen September 4, 2013 at 2:21 AM #

    Quite creative. Looking forward to a multi-season series. Can we advance subscribe?

    Can I use your pictures?

    […] I didn’t hallucinate? Blogs! Here’s some of what I read… Christopher De Voss put blooging on tv. Undercover L had some very strong thoughts on parenting, and No Blog Intended looked at her life […]
