Group Writing Project #1

July 1, 2008 by  
Filed under contests

Welcome to my first ever Group Writing Project. I’ve always wanted to host one but the idea kept falling to the bottom of the priority list. Well, not this time. And since this is my first attempt, I wanted a theme that would be easy and fun. So I came up with . . .

How to . . . .

It can be funny, serious, sarcastic, or totally made up. It’s up to you – the more original the better.

Here are the guidelines:

  • Publish a brand new post on your blog with the theme “How to . . .”.
  • Link back to this contest post somewhere in your submission.
  • Using this contact form, send me the link to the actual post before July 16th.
  • Periodically throughout the week, I’ll be posting the links to the various entries so other people can stop by and enjoy your submissions. Hint: Use a creative title for your entry to attract attention to it.
  • A random winner will be selected and notified on July 17th.
  • Prize: $30 to Amazon.com and a cool button to display.

I hope you all take this opportunity to visit each other and possibly make new bloggy friends!

    This was so much fun – it took me a long time to decide what I could possibly write a how to post about, but I’m pretty happy with the results – thanks for setting this thing up! :)

    Wow! This sounds like fun. I have lots of ideas. Of course, I’ve already started a series on How to make a Menu on my blog. I’ll be doing the third installment on the series at the end of the week.

    I’ve got another idea, however… Let’s see if I can get it together!

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

    Thanks so much for your distinct page;this is the stuff that keeps me going through my day. I have been searching around for this site after I heard about them from a buddy and was thrilled when I found it after searching for long time. Being a demanding blogger, I’m cheerful to see others taking initivative and contributing to the community. I would like to comment to show my approval for your blog as it is very appleaing, and many writers do not get credit they deserve. conceive a girl
