Many months ago, CMT announced that they were looking for a willing blogger to helm their self-described “Dukes of Hazzard Institute” and spread the interactive word about the network and the show. You can check out the original promotion here.
But all is not well in quiet Hazzard County. It seems that an independent blogger has created his own refuge for Duke fans, Duke news and Duke sounds: dukesounds.com, the Boss Hogg Blog. No word on why ‘Blog’ didn’t rate that second ‘G’.
Since CMT hasn’t rolled out there blog, it’s hard to compare offerings. One is there and one isn’t. CMT does have the advantage in the title department, though. The winner of their “contest”, Christopher Nelson, is vice president of the Dukes of Hazzard Institute. The guy who runs dukesounds.com, as far as I know, isn’t really Boss Hogg, despite the Blogger profile.
Yee Haw! It’s a blogfight and that ol’ Boss Hogg is givin’ that CMT a run for it’s money. What are those Duke boys gonna do?
