I am going to have the third Ultimate Blogging Challenge. I haven't done one in over a year, so I'd like to start one. If you would like to sign up, leave your first name and a link to your blog in the comment section. This will be the first UBC that won't be done with teams. It will be done solo, so no one can rely on their teammate to do the work for them. The goal is to get people to find other blogs that interest you. You can sign up starting right now. Registration ends on June 6th at 3:00 PM. I will not be in the challenge, but I will be trying to do all the challenges. For the first two rounds, you get eliminated by not doing the challenge.
Lots of people have collections. Some popular collections are erasers, kooky pens, and sports cards. While I collect lots of things, I have one colossal collection. My favorite things to collect are WWE and UFC figures.
I started collecting UFC figures in September of 2008. I bought figures of Royce Gracie and Brock Lesnar. I then started buying a few each month. Today, I have 56 UFC figures, only missing out on one fighter's figure that they have made. Once I had collected a bunch, I started collecting smaller ones. I collected 10 of those.
In December of 2011, I got a WWE Rick Rude figure for Christmas. At the time, I didn't watch WWE. Although I didn't watch it, I had collected a lot of UFC figures by then, so I bought 5 or 6 more. I then started watching WWE in May 2012 and realized that is was super fun to watch. I started collecting a bunch of them. At the moment, I have 93 WWE figures. Combined, my collection of UFC and WWE figures is probably worth about $1,750.
I don't just collect these because they're fun to collect. I do MMA and wrestling. When I learn a new move in MMA, I go home and try it out with my UFC figures. If you want to try and collect something, I would recommend collecting something related to what you like doing.
Do you watch WWE or UFC?
What do you collect?

Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president of the United States of America. He is considered one of the best presidents ever, along with George Washington. Lincoln is most famous for his signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, which ended slavery in the USA. Although the news did not reach everyone right away, the Emancipation Proclamation is one of the most important things in USA history. His Vice President was Hannibal Hamlin. Andrew Johnson replaced Hamlin in 1865. Lincoln served as president from 1861-1865, before being assassinated by John Wilkes Booth. He was 56 years old when he died at 7:22 AM on April 15, 1865.
Who do you think was/is the best president in USA history?

I'm going to start writing biographies on my blog. I'll try to do at least one biography each week. I'm going to be doing it for anyone. I'll do talk show hosts, astronauts, actors, directors, athletes, authors, and more! Also, if there is anyone in particular who you would like me to write about, you can ask me to write about them in the comments.
Who should I write about?

For the next couple of weeks, me and a couple of my friends are doing a school project about hockey. We're going to match up everyone on the teams, plus the coach and the team record, and predict who will win. Our goal is to eventually be able to predict the winner of every game. Yesterday, we didn't get either game right, but we hope to get it right today! Who do you think will win the Stanley Cup?

Last night Kobe Bryant was injured in the Los Angeles Lakers game. He was going to play all 48 minutes but he got injured with 3:08 left in the game. This is very upsetting for the Lakers as they have 2 games left in the season. They are only 1 game ahead of the Jazz for the final spot in the West for the playoffs. Players such as Lebron James, Chris Paul, and Matt Barnes have tweeted about the injury and hope that Kobe gets better. Kobe is expected to have an Achilles tear.
