Post to Twitter Post to Digg Post to Facebook Post to Google Buzz Post to StumbleUpon

The winner of this weeks Top Sites Tuesday was Pete from Pete’s ‘Today is the Day” Quiz. Pete’s Blog has been featured on BlogDumps before, so we are going to be sending him a BlogDumps T-shirt!

But, just because he’s been featured doesn’t mean we aren’t going to tell you how awesome his blog is! Pete writes:

“For all fans of quizzes, this blog is here for you to get your daily ‘fix’ of trivia questions. Each day there will be questions about happenings that occurred on that particular day in history. Births, marriages, deaths, earth-shattering events, useless trivia…all things that happened TODAY in history.”

He pairs his trivia questions with thoughts and news – news is normally from the BBC, after all Pete is in the UK. Every day he posts 3 trivia questions and the answers to yesterday’s questions. Sometimes I actually get the answers without Googling them 😉 And when I do have to Google the answers, I find it entertaining – I actually learn stuff – Imagine that LOL

In other news, check out the new shirts Wolfbernz created yesterday — The BlogDumps Store I think he did an awesome job with the new look!

Pete’s ‘Today in History’ Quiz

Post to Twitter Post to Digg Post to Facebook Post to Google Buzz Post to StumbleUpon

Pete’s “Today in History” Quiz blog was the top blog this week on Top Sites Tuesday!

Pete has a great blog with a ton of useful information. He delivers it in the form of a quiz. I really like Pete’s blog it is so informative and a fun place to visit. Pete has been joining in the Top Site Tuesday Meme and we love having him here in the community.

Pete's 'Today in History' Quiz

Everyday Pete put’s up a quiz consisting of three questions and the answers are posted on the next day’s blog. I find every question challenging, however I must admit I cheat from time to time by Googling the answers!

In his Biography, Pete writes:

“I have been presenting weekly Pub Quizzes for the last 8 years here in Birmingham and I thought it was about time to test out some of my questions on a wider audience.
My basic philosophy for a quiz is: – Don’t make it too hard (people don’t like to go home thinking that they know nothing!)
If people don’t know an answer, when they do hear it they say, “****, I should have known that!!” (There’s nothing worse at a quiz than being none the wiser when you’ve heard the answer!)
Aim the questions at your target audience’s interests.
I have published the book “The Easy Quiz Master” (available via Amazon and Lulu.com). This book is designed to give aspiring quiz masters enough questions for a whole year of quizzing based on presenting a quiz per week.
Aside from quizzing I enjoy playing golf (not very well – handicap 19), canal holidays, visiting pubs, science fiction and taking occasional photos.”

So let’s all make the journey to Birmingham in the United Kingdom and visit Pete! Good luck with Today’s Quiz!
