Upon first glance of my blog, many of you may ask:
"What does Sporcle mean? Is that a spork for barnacles?”
|Mean Girls, |
In actuality, Sporcle doesn't mean anything. Sporcle is an online quiz website founded in 2007. New quizzes on a variety of topics are published on the main page by the Sporcle staff each day. Published quizzes can vary greatly in their difficulty. There are easy quizzes like, "Name thethings Meat Loaf won't do for love?”, and there are difficult quizzes like, "Name all of countries of the world."
Sporcle members can gain achievement badges when they play certain quizzes at certain times. Some badges are day-dependent (playing 10 Mean Girls quizzes on October 3rd gains you a badge) and some badges are time-dependent (15 games between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m. to gain another badge). For example, here is the badge you attain when you join Sporcle.

I spend a lot of my free time playing quizzes as a way to relax. Since I started playing at university, I have attained many badges but there are still over 100 that I haven`t unlocked! I am starting this blog to chronicle my attempts to gain every badge the site has to offer.
Each week I will set a target badge and give a play-by-play of all the quizzes I played to reach my target. I will do my best to spread out the genre of my quizzes, so you aren't reading exclusively about my favourite types of quizzes (Sports and Geography FYI).Hopefully you`ll have as much fun reading my blog as I know I will have writing it. Time to start our adventure!
