Guest Blog Contest Festival Event

I will be out of the office next week, and as we occasionally do on this here blog we'll be having a contest to determine which blogging geniuses will take to the Interwaves to keep us entertained.

There are.... AN UNDISCLOSED number of slots up for grabs. (Undisclosed because I'm not sure yet. Rest assured that it will be a number more than one and less than infinity.)

- Please post your entry as a new topic in the special Guest Blog Contest Festival Event forum. In order to do this, if you have not already been assimilated into the Forums you will need to register. And you should know that assimilation into the Forums is impossible to resist. I will get you eventually, my pretties!

- Please limit yourself to one entry.

- You may enter a post that you submitted for past guest blog contest(s) but it's probably best to send something new.

- Please do not e-mail me your entry.

- I will choose the undisclosed number of best, most helpful, funniest, awesomest posts to run next week and link to the guest blog author's blog or website or Amazon page or favorite charity or what have you. The topic is totally up to you, although some relevancy to this blog's themes will probably receive preference (but not necessarily!).

- Please have your entries posted by Wednesday afternoon, Pacific Time. Winners will be chosen.... sometime after that, depending on my schedule. Announcements will be made.

- Rules and guidelines subject to change without notice. But you knew that.

Good luck!

Do you want something new, or are old posts from our own blogs okay?

Nathan Bransford said...

Old posts are okay.

May we reference the work of great authors in the past and/or quote them?

This is so cool. Thanks for doing this again. It really lets us see into the minds and thoughts of the reader/writers here. Always enjoyable and often enlightening.

Provided you're not violating copyright, sure.

Why, why do you always do this just when I'm getting ready for another iron butt m'cycle trip? Oh, well. Maybe next time.

You killed my last chance of potential at the word "geniuses".

Nathan, I think this is a great idea. Not only because we'll have awesome guest bloggers, but we can also read everyone's submissions in the forum, and maybe discover personal favourites. Thanks for the opportunity. ^^

Malia Sutton said...

I'm half tempted. But I'm sure there are much better bloggers than me out there.

Ishta Mercurio said...

Okay! Count me in - right after I think of something genius to write about. ;-)

Mira said...

More than one and less than infinity - ha, ha!

So, oooooooooo, a contest. Fun, fun, fun!!

But Wed.! That's so soon. Just got home from class, late night tomorrow - I'll probably need to cheer other folks on for this one. And cheer I will - guest posts are always fun.

But what's even more important - Nathan's taking a vacation - yay!! Good for you! Go - have fun, rest and relax, you deserve it, Mr. Bransford.

But, then, hurry back!

Matthew Rush said...

Oh boy. I would love to get involved but I'm not sure I can take the pressure. Besides, I write really awesome blog posts ... about 5 out of every 100 times.

I'll see if I can come up with something though Nathan, only because you asked.

Sorry, what time tomorrow?

Guest Blogging! Woo hoo! I'm all over this...oh wait. Did you say genius? Egads.

Will a "wannabe genius" blog post work? Do we have to worship the Lakers as a prerequisite for being chosen?

J. T. Shea said...

' pretties.' I have a sudden vision of a huge cube floating over the Emerald City...But I think there's a Biblical injunction against mixing STAR TREK with THE WIZARD OF OZ, like against mixing wool and cotton.

I could send you over three hundred blog posts, but they're all on your blog and forums already!

Mira said...

Changed my mind. I wrote something up. I'm going to edit it, and then post it. It's three pages long. Is that too long?

Don't anyone steal my idea before I post it, okay?

How fun, a contest! Thanks for doing this, Nathan. :)
