[When we're looking for blogs on a specific topic, we'll put out a Bloggers Wanted call. Check out the blog prompt, write your own response in the Community Blogs and tag it with the "Bloggers Wanted Essay Response" tag, and you may see your blog promoted to the front page.-- JRo]
The PlayStation Vita will be dropping in a few months, and Nintendo's 3DS has been available for a while. Even if you don't have plans to buy a current generation handheld, I bet at some point you've owned a Gameboy or a Game Gear. For this week, I want you to write a blog about handheld gaming. Anything is fair game as long as it relates to handhelds in some way -- handheld game discussions, a look at the state of the handheld market, reminiscing about old hardware -- it's all allowed. iPhone/Android/mobile gaming is off limits for this topic, though, and we'll have a separate Bloggers Wanted for them at some point down the road.
Well-written and insightful blogs have a chance of being promoted to the front page. If you want to participate, justwrite a C Blog, title it "Handhelds: [Your Blog's Title]", and select the Bloggers Wanted Essay Response tag. Throughout the week, keep an eye on the blogs and get some discussions going with your fellow Dtoiders, and make sure you look for promoted blogs from last week's topic, East vs. West.
