How fun to discover writing contests in the blogosphere that are actually simple enough for me to understand and participate in. In the last post I mentioned Write Club. DL Hammon also runs another blog hop called Blog Blitz. And you can sign on too.
What's Blog Blitz? On a intermittent though semi-regular basis, someone is selected to received a visit from the rest of the group. Since there are nearly 500 bloggers on the list, and growing, even if everyone can't participate, the blitzee still receives a spike in comments. What a nice treat for a blogger. Thanks DL for coming up with this great idea. It's been a pleasure to participate in this wonderful blogging community of blitzers.
Through the Blog Blitz I have been introduced some fabulous bloggers and other contests out there as well. One of those I came across through this week's Blog Blitz of Kim Van Sickler who wrote a entry piece called Towpath Trail Adventures for the weekly Midlife Collage writing competition. It's a free writing competition, but does offer monetary compensation to the winners. You can check out the website for all the particulars. What I like about it is how clear and easy to understand submissions are and how fun it is to read the entries even if you aren't ready to participate yourself. I added both Kim and the Midlife Collage to my blog role because I found both worth a follow.
